Ball Power Levels
Here is my list for the complete Dragonball Z
Manga Power Levels.
Regarding Pojo's 1999 Power Ratings, I'll start by providing explanations to each level
I disagree with and why.
Note: I disagree with the levels presented in the Daizenshuu
because they are not directly from Akira Toriyama but rather
his staff, and they could have easily put inaccurate levels
just to satisfy people, when in fact many are blatantly
Goku Ozouru: 100-
I find it hard to believe that Son Goku was only twice as
strong as a normal human, as he was able to survive bullets
to the head among many other extremely awesome feats. He
should be close to 30.
-Jackie Chun: 139
For this Tournament, Jackie / Kame-sen'nin had trained, and
should be higher than he was in DBZ, because he didn't
really do any fighting at all after the confrontation with
Piccolo Dai-mao. I would estimate him for 150 to 160.
Piccolo Daimao: 260-
Goku was clearly more powerful than Piccolo, and these
levels are low in the first place. Son Goku should be about
350 and Piccolo should be about 330 to 335
Piccolo w/weighted clothing:320
Piccolo w/o weighted clothing:408
Son Goku w/weighted clothing:330
Son Goku w/o weighted clothing:416
Son Goku, Kamehameha:924
Raditz was stated by Nappa to be just over 1,200 and equal
to every last Saibaman. I can get the quote from the manga
if you see fit.
This means he would be 1,210 to 1,240
Piccolo w/ weighted clothes was stated at 322, not 320.
Son Goku w/ weighted clothes was stated as 334, not 330.
Goku's Kamehameha should be higher. The line in the Manga
was "924 and rising!" which means it was higher. Also,
Vegeta stated that Raditz was beat by fighters with powers
"Barely over 1,000" so Goku must've hit a number higher than
Chaozu's power level isn't stated in the Manga and he's
never shown fighting, so there isn't any way to tell what it
would be and probably just shouldn't be included.
Kuririn,Mega Energy Blast:1,750
Saibamen should be slightly over 1,200.
That level for Kuririn was supressed, he was actually
stronger than Yamcha.
Piccolo powered up should be under 2,800 because he stated
that Gohan's pique was higher than his own.
Angry Gohan was stated as 2,800. Only the FuniDub got that
Son Goku,powered up:8,000
Son Goku,Kaioh-ken times 1:12,000
Son Goku,Kaioh-ken times 2:16,000
Son Goku,Kaioh-ken times 3:24,000
Son Goku,Kaioh-ken times 4+Kamehameha:37,000 Nappa:4,000
Vegeta:16,000 Vegeta,powered up:18,000 Vegeta,Gallet
Goku powered up was "Over 8,000". I'd place it at 8,250 to
make the levels easy for Kaio-ken.
Kaio-ken is stated to double the user's power by both the
Lord Of Worlds (King Kai) and the narroration window for the
begining of DBZ Volume 4. Kaioken x2 is not known, so
shouldn't be listed just because it's unknown as to what it
Nappa, when calm, matched evenly with powered up Son Goku.
Vegeta was higher than Kaioken before powering up, he should
Vegeta, powered up, was higher than 18,000. He should be
Vegeta's Great Ape form wasn't 180,000. Vegeta was battle
damaged, used a ton of energy on the Gyarriku-Ho (Galick
Gun) and he expended a good portion of Ki to make the Moon
Ball as well, as stated by both him and Son Goku.
Gohan and Kuririn were stated to be about 1,500 against the
-Vegeta:24,000+[scouter broke as reading got higher]
Kiwi would probably be better at 19,000. Everyone thought
Vegeta was 18,000 beforehand, and Kiwi thought he could beat
Vegeta stopped at 24,000. A updated scouter read him at
Again, Vegeta was 24,000 stated.
Vegeta was not even close to that far ahead of Monster
Zarbon. He simply dodged an attack, put sand in the guys
eyes, then pounded him with Ki Blasts for a long time before
finishing off the weak and injured Zarbon.
-Kuririn,after Guru power up:19,000
Gohan, after Guru power up:24,000
Gohan and Kuririn were stated to be "Over 10,000" so neigher
of them should exceed 15,000.
Vegeta was probably only 30,000, tops.
Gurd (Guldo) couldn't have been that high. He was terribly
weak, probably only about 2,000.
Reacoom was lower than 60,000. Remember, Ginyu estimated the
Goku he knew beat Butta and Reacoom to be 60,000 so clearly
that level had to be high enough to kick their butts.
-Son Goku,powered up for Ginyu fight:180,000 Jeice:75,000
Burter[or Baata]:70,000 Rikum:60,000 Captain Ginyu:120,000
Ginyu,in Son Goku's body:23,000-
Goku was using Kaio-ken
Jheese, Reacoom, and Butta were stated to all have the same
-Ginyu,in Son Goku's body:23,000
Ginyu,after figuring out Son Goku's body:100,000 Son Goku,in
Ginyu's body:10,000 Son Goku,after figuring out Ginyu's
In the Manga, Ginyu never "Figures out" Goku's body, but
even if he did, how did it exceed his Base Power Level?
Goku's base max was 90,000.
Son Goku didn't fight using Ginyu's body in the Manga, but
assuming he had...that's a bit too weak.
Freeza form 2 was "Over 1,000,000" as stated.
- Piccolo[after fusing with Nail]:880,000 Freezer,form
2:1,000,000 Freezer,form 3:6,000,000-
After Gohan beat him up, Freeza powered up significantly and
thus there should be a PL for that and it should be about
Piccolo was stated to be even better than this, so should be
about 1,500,000. After this, Freeza powers up again and
beats up Piccolo, then Piccolo removes his weighted clothing
and says he'll stop holding back, and scares Freeza into
Freeza Form 3 is too big a jump, it should be just under
-Vegeta,after Dende heal:1,000,000
Vegeta should be stronger than Piccolo by quite a bit and
even stronger than Freeza form 3 because he felt he could
Super Saiya-jin Son Goku:15,000,000-
Okay, I have much work to do here.
Freeza fights Goku using the same level he used against
Vegeta, which was an unknown fraction of his power but it
was probably 20%. This 20% should be around 4,000,000. Son
Goku matches that power level while using Kaio-ken x10 as
stated by the Lord of Worlds (Kaio-Sama, King Kai). With
this, Freeza powers up to 50% of his power and completely
beats the crap out of Goku. At this point, Goku uses the
Kaioken x20 and hurts Freeza a bit, but is still inferior to
him. He then resorts to the Genki Dama (Spirit Bomb) and you
know the rest...
Later, we have the Super Saiyan Son Goku. He completely owns
on 50% Freeza but after making Namek's core unstable, Freeza
hits roughly 70% (He says, "Not even three-quarters of his
power.) and hurts Goku slightly, then Freeza powers up to
100%. At this point, he is actually STRONGER than the Super
Saiyan Son Goku and proves it by beating him for a while,
but since his body is so thrashed Goku says that he is
losing power fast and Freeza will soon be even weaker, and
this is true. So, they are later even and then Goku takes
the higher level of power.
Any of that make sense?
-SSJ Son Goku:40,000,000
Mirai Trunks:35,000,000 -
How in the world did Goku almost triple his PL in a year and
All he did while away was master the Transformation and
learn Warping, he should only increase by about 10 to 20
Freeza stated he was the strongest in the universe, and thus
is stronger than King Cold.
Mirai Trunks was stated by Gohan to have the same power as
his father as a Super Saiyan. (SS Trunks, that is) and thus
he should be the same as him. Freeza was not fully powered
up when Trunks fought him (Gohan said that Freeza could get
a lot stronger) so he should be at about was 60% of his PL
would measure at on Namek.
