"You gotta be kidding me! That's him? That's Bibidi's madman? He's been revived again? This is terrible!"
— "Battle for the Universe Begins"

West Kai (西にしかいおう Nishi no Kaiō, literal meaning "West's King of the Worlds") is the king of the West Area of the universe and North Kai's personal rival.


West Kai is short in stature, being about half the size of North Kai, and wears a blue monocle (he is the only Kai without sunglasses).


West Kai is quite arrogant, rude, and insulting. Like his fellow Kais he can be very immature when bickering with his counterparts. He is also a very sore loser, being unwilling to lose without making up some excuse when it's obvious he lost.



West Kai taught Pikkon the Thunder Flash Attack.

West Kai

His fighters are very strong and his best and strongest fighter is Pikkon. His fighters include Pikkon, Tapkar and Maraikoh. When Pikkon fried the arena twice with the Thunder Flash Attack, West Kai remarks that "I told him not to do that, 'don't use Thunder Flash unless you're far away' I said. It's getting harder and harder to teach these kids, It's all about explosions to them."

Sometime later, West Kai encounters Kid Buu, and it turns out that he fought the monster Majin Buu, as the North Kai reminds him. He does not recognize Buu at first, wondering if he is training or "trying to kill us." While Goku fights Buu, he remembers the villain after North Kai mentions him, he teases Pikkon with the obvious truth that Buu is much stronger than him, much to Pikkon's dismay.

All four Kais often argue with each other, make fun of each other, or insult each other, but West Kai seems to particularly be North Kai's rival, and takes an immediate dislike to Goku, who is North Kai's star pupil. The only times the Kais get along is in a time of universal crisis (something that does not happen frequently).
