A Power Meter displays 3,000 kili

A Kili (キリ, Kiri) is a unit of measurement seen used by Babidi and his henchmen. The name is a pun on riki (力), the Japanese word for "power".


Babidi first mentioned this unit when he and his right-hand man Dabura are collecting energy to awaken Majin Buu from his Sealed Ball. It is different from the energy unit measured on scouters; kili are measured by Power Meters different from the scouters and 1 Kili = 50,000 BP according to a 2004 V-Jump issue.[1]

According to Dabura, 200-300 kili is enough to destroy a planet or two.[2][3] Placing a single kili somewhere around 10^30 (1,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 or 1 Nonillion) Joules.

The only recorded kili measurements are 800, which belongs to Yakon, and 3,000, which belongs to Super Saiyan Goku. In the anime only, Dabura states that even a kili of 4,000 cannot defeat him, implying that he has a kili of over 4,000.

In Dragon Ball Xenoverse, Time Breakers Towa and Mira travel through time to seek warriors with powerful Kili and steal their energy and plan to use the accumulated stolen energy to break the seal on Demon Realm.[4]

In Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2, it is briefly referred to as Damage Energy by Towa after the Masked Saiyan manages to collect enough Kili using an Energy Absorber to allow Towa to empower Mira further.


  • Although a Kili is supposedly worth 50,000 BP, this is seemingly inconsistent with events in the series. Vegeta claims to be able to destroy a planet in his first fight with Goku, even though his power was only 18,000, or 0.36 of a Kili at the time (this is shown to be true when he destroys Arlia in anime filler). Frieza also destroyed a planet in his first form with only his finger, despite his power being 530,000, well below the 15 million (300 kilis) required to destroy a planet. Howevever "destroying" the planet could refer to annihilating it with a single attack, whereas Frieza destroyed a planet by detonating it's core.
  • Given its usage by several denizens of Demon Realm (Babidi, Dabura, Towa, and Mira) it may be a common unit of measurement for power levels in Demon Realm.
