A Energy Meter displays 3,000 kili

A Kili (キリ Kiri) is a unit of measurement seen and used by denizens of the Demon Realm[1], notably Babidi and his henchmen.


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 Energy Meters different from the scouters and 1 Kili = 50,000 BP according to a 2004 V-Jump issue.[2]

According to Dabura, 200-300 kili is enough to destroy a planet or two.[3][4]

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.

Kiri Charger

Kiri Charger in Dragon Ball Online

In Dragon Ball Online, Bullgokin of the Guard Troops uses a device called a Kiri Charging Machine to power himself up granted him his Poisoned state. He loses the state when the Kiri is removed from him using the machine. This Kili Charging Machine was installed inside Pilaf's Castle by the remnants of the Frieza Force indicating the Frieza Force may have acquired knowledge of Kiri from their Time Breaker allies thus explaining Bullgokin's usage of Kiri to power himself up.

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.

Towa releasing Damage Energy from the Energy Absorber to power-up Mira in Xenoverse 2

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 the Energy-Suction Device to allow Towa to empower Mira further. In the Infinite History Saga, Dabura returns thanks to Towa's preventing his death and seeks to avenge her after she is killed along with Mira in Age ???. In order to enact his revenge, Dabura begins collecting Damage Energy to power up both himself and his artificially created nephew Fu the genetic offspring of Towa and Mira which he gains by altering history much like his sister did.


  • The name is a pun on riki (力), the Japanese word for "power".
  • 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 its core.
  • Goku's energy being measured at 3,000 kili means that would put his power level at 150,000,000, the same as it was against Frieza, and Goku's base form would be at only 60 kili (3,000,000 BP). This seems very inconsistent, as Goku's power should have increased dramatically since then. However, it is very likely Goku was not putting out his full power when he turned Super Saiyan against Yakon, as he has the ability to suppress his power. In addition, Vegeta commented that Goku was already winning the fight in his base form, which would seem off considering that Yakon was put at 800 kili (40,000,000 BP).
