"Your effort is in vain. If the Supreme Kai was unable to extract the sword, how can a simple mortal like yourself ever succeed?"
Kibito (キビト) is a character in the Dragon Ball manga and the anime Dragon Ball Z. He is the greatest ally of the Supreme Kai. Kibito is very tall, as Gohan is seen calling him "big guy." His name is based on the Japanese word tsukibito (付き人), which means "attendant".
Kibito is a tall, red-skinned Shin-jin. He possesses white, long hair and a broad face. He wears the attire of a Shin-jin or deity would.
Kibito remains quite faithful to the Supreme Kai even though he sometimes is jealous of the strength of Gohan. Kibito is a kind-hearted guy but is disdainful of Gohan.
Kibito was an attendant of the Supreme Kais and aided them with his magic abilities (Instantaneous Movement, Healing, etc.). After most of them were killed by Majin Buu, Kibito became the Eastern Supreme Kai's personal bodyguard.

Kibito heals Gohan and they leave with Supreme Kai and the others to follow Yamu and Spopovich.

- Statements by authors and guidebooks

- Flight – The ability to fly with the use of ki.
- Healing – Kibito has the ability to heal wounds, which helps the Z Fighters in many situations.
- Instantaneous Movement – The ability to instantly teleport to another planet, place, or person. Unlike the Instant Transmission technique, the user does not need to focus on a specific energy signature to use as a target.
