South Kai (南の界王 Minami no Kaiō, lit. "Southern King of the Worlds") is the king of the South Area.
He is tall, has light pink skin, and wears white Jackie Ohh sunglasses.
Dragon Ball Z
Majin Buu Saga
South Kai trains his fighters in a defensive manner. Fighters of his quadrant include Caterpy, Froug, and Torbie. Out of the fighters of his quadrant, Froug was able to reach the quarter finals of the Other World Tournament, and Torbie managed to reach the semi finals before being eliminated by Pikkon.
He seems confident that Goku will not be able to lift the far heavier load, but gets baffled when Goku turns Super Saiyan and starts to train with ease. He quickly leaves the scene with Papoi.

He is shown training Torbie, Mijorin, Chapuchai, Maraikoh, and Froug, still on Grand Kai's Planet.
Dragon Ball Z: Fusion Reborn

South Kai once again loses the Other World Tournament when his last fighter, Froug, is defeated by Goku in the semi-finals. When Pikkon defeats Arqua, he cheers for Pikkon just to spite King Kai. He was the one to jokingly suggest that the failed Fusion attempt between Goku and Vegeta should be named Veku in the Fusion Reborn movie, and also commented that Veku was fatter than North Kai.
He has the ability to alter the weight on training weights, as is seen when King Kai instructs him to increase Goku's training weights to ten tons each. South Kai then shoots out a wave, crying out the new weight, as the weights are adjusted.
Video game appearances
In Budokai 3, South Kai is seen with North Kai if Goku or Vegeta perform a failed fusion and become Veku. In Dragon Ball Z: Shin Budokai, the player can buy a picture of him from the shop for his profile card. South Kai also appears in Dragon Ball Z: Buu's Fury.

- In the manga, South Kai and King Kai are the only Kais ever shown (with the exception of the Supreme Kais).
- In the original Funimation dub he was given a small hint of southern accent in his voice. This is likely a reference to the fact he is the "South" Kai.
