Nominated by Project Corndog.  Let’s say this is Dragonball-era Roshi.

I'd bet on Hercules nine times out of ten. that one time is when Roshi pulls off a moon destroying attack

Roshi's much faster, and Herc will never hit him thanks to Roshi having
something akin to Ultra Instinct.

This is pre-Z Roshi, per the topic. No Ultra Instinct.

Herc is much, much stronger than Roshi. And likely more durable (if we are discounting some of the "cartoon physics" showing, like Chi-chi lobbing her blade into his skull). But Roshi has a ton of tricks and special attacks, and the speed gap is enormous.

I'd say Roshi can take 6 or 7/10.

He doesn't need Ultra Instinct. Roshi/Jackie Chun is simply so fast that Hercules shouldn't be  able to hit him. He can casually leave after images and stuff.

Also I see a Mafuba  in Herc's future.

Hercules has the stamina and strength advantage. He has even MORE experience than Roshi.

Roshi has the speed advantage, has a lot of tricks, and incredibly powerful energy blasts.

If anyone is curious to see what Master Roshi is capable watch, watch Jackie Chun vs Tien Shinhan. Jackie Chun was Master Roshi's disguise. Not to mention one of the best fights in Dragonball, Z, Super, etc.
