South Kaio

From Dragon Ball Wiki, the ''Dragon Ball'' encyclopedia

(Redirected from South Kai)

South Kai (南の界王 Minami no Kaiô) is the ruler of the South quadrant of the galaxy. He is tall, has light pink skin, and is peace-loving, and as a reference to his name, he has a small hint of a southern accent in his voice, although this is only in the FUNimation dub.

[edit] Biography

South Kai trains his fighters in a defensive manner. Fighters of his quadrant include Torbie, Froug, and Caterpy. His newest fighter is Papoi, whom he quickly understands to be weaker then Goku. 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.

North and South Kais in Fusion Reborn

In the movie, Dragon Ball Z: Fusion Reborn, South Kai once again loses the Otherworld Tournament when his last fighter, Froug, is defeated by Goku in the semifinals. When Pikkon defeats Arqua, he cheers for Pikkon just to spite King Kai.

South Kai gives the start of East Kai and Goku's race

He has the ability to raise 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. He seems confident that Goku won't 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. East Kai and himself don't mind King Kai and West Kai's rivalry, and almost seem to enjoy it. He was also the one to jokingly suggest that the failed Fusion attempt between Goku and Vegeta should be named Veku in the Fusion Reborn movie. He, like East and West Kai makes fun of how King Kai is dead and cheers about it too. In Fusion Reborn, he also commented that Veku was fatter than King Kai. South Kai is seen in two video games: Budokai 3, in which he is seen with King Kai if Goku or Vegeta use the fusion wrong and become Veku, and Shin Budokai where the player can buy a picture of him from the shop for his profile card.
