"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, Kibito) is the attendant of the Supreme Kais of the Universe 7.
Kibito is a tall, blue-skinned Shinjin (red-skinned in the anime). He possesses white, long hair and a broad face. He wears the attire that of the Supreme Kais.
Kibito remains quite faithful to the Supreme Kai even though he is sometimes jealous of the strength of Gohan. Kibito is a kind-hearted guy but was originally disdainful of Gohan and does not like the idea of mortals stepping foot on the sacred world of the Kai's. It is said that he studies a great amount about Universe 7, yet he isn't informed about all the races in Universe 7, as he did not know about the Metalmen in his universe.
Kibito is 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.
Near Babidi's spaceship, Kibito is killed by Dabura, but later brought back by using the Dragon Balls. He finds the severely injured Supreme Kai and heals him. Together, they find Gohan and bring him to the Sacred World of the Kais. After Gohan has his powers unlocked by Old Kai, Kibito makes Gohan an outfit just like his fathers, at Gohan's request. Eventually, Kibito accidentally and permanently fuses with the Supreme Kai to create Kibito Kai.

- Statements by authors and guidebooks
It is never made clear in the manga or the anime how powerful Kibito really is, but his profile in Daizenshuu 7 states that his power level is considerably high, enough to give Gohan a difficult fight as long as he was not a Super Saiyan. He does however show that he lacks the strength that Gohan has in his normal state, unable to budge the Z Sword that Gohan was able to lift up and swing.
In the Dragon Ball Super manga he spars with Zamasu. He holds his own for a while, but ultimately proves to be no match for the fighting prodigy.
