KABOOM’S TOTALLY ROCKIN’ DRAGON BALL Z SERIES POWAR LEVULS
 
POWER MULTIPLIERS
Oozaru – 10x
Super Saiyan – 50x
Super Saiyan Grade 2 – 75x
Super Saiyan Grade 3 – 110x
Super Saiyan 2 – 100x
Super Saiyan 3 – 400x
 
 
 
               [Oozaru, Super Saiyan, Super Saiyan 2, and Super Saiyan 3 all have officially-stated power boosts from at least one solid source each. Grade 2 is a moderately good boost over Super Saiyan, balancing speed and power with some extra strain and energy waste. Grade 3 is a little bit stronger than SS2 because it focuses too much on raw power, but its crippling energy drain and speed deficiency leaves it markedly inferior to the latter’s more balanced boosts.]
 
 
                        A LONG TIME AGO, IN A GALAXY FAR, FAR AWAY…
 
Bardock – 4,500
Fiddlehead (a.k.a. “Other Saiyan Dude”) – 2,500
Proto-Yakon Aliens – 200
 
            [Toriyama has – intentionally or otherwise – implied that “his” Bardock is somewhat weaker than the original one portrayed in the TV special, and didn’t manage to become promoted to an elite/mid-class because of that. But I’d find it distasteful to de-power him too much, so I settled for just chopping his “nearly 10,000” power level from the TV special in half. This puts him on a level where he may have recently pushed himself up into the lower end of the “elite” power range, but has yet to be recognized or promoted for it. I’m comfortable with that.]
 
Gine – 1,800
 
            [Kind, gentle, in need of rescue more often than Princesses Peach… but STILL stronger than Raditz! Because I say so!]
 
Li’l Kakarrot – 3
 
            [His age is his power level. I’m so clever.]
 
Li’l Vegeta – 9,000
Li’l Raditz – 750
 
            [Let’s just keep up the “chop everyone’s PL in half” method going, because why not?]
 
Freeza – 530,000
Random Alien Attendant – 2,000
 
            [In a universe full of constantly changing and retconned powers, Freeza’s good ol’ 530k is a comforting constant. Also, where the eff were Zarbon and Dodoria?]
 
King of Space – 20 tentacles
Jaco – 500
 
            [Aside from knowing that Jaco and most or all other Galactic Patrolmen are no match for fully-grown Saiyans… this is arbitrary.]
 
 
                        THE FAMILY REUINION WHERE YOUR LOSER BROTHER BRINGS HIS RUDE FRIENDS
 
Raditz – 1,500
 
Son Goku – 334
            Un-weighted – 416
            Kamehameha – 924+
Piccolo – 322
            Un-weighted – 408
            Makankosappo #1 – 1,330
            Makankosappo #2 – 1,480
Son Gohan – 1
            Upset – 710
            Angry – 1307
 
Muten Roshi – 139
Kuririn – 206
Tenshinhan – 250
Yamcha – 177
Kaio – 3,500
 
            [Official and stated levels all around. There’s a lot of theories that could be thrown around and explored about what might or might not be Goku and Piccolo’s true full powers during this fight, but I don’t want to willingly invite the headache.]
 
Piccolo – 1,220
            Full Power – 3,500
Son Gohan – 981
            Angry Masenko – 2,800
            Oozaru – 6,000
               
            [Meek little Gohan doesn’t quite measure up to his elders until he gets pissed off and unleashes a big anger-fueled Masenko (and even that apparently still doesn’t match up to the best that Piccolo can pull off). He was quite beaten up by the time he transformed, and even having him still at 600 or so seems almost too generous in light of that, but his Oozaru power was still too much for a likewise beaten-up Vegeta to handle.]
 
Kuririn – 1,083
            Full Power – 1,770
Tenshinhan – 1,830
Chaozu – 610
Yamcha – 1,480
Yajirobe – 970
 
            [More official levels all around.]
 
Kami – 220
Mr. Popo – 1,030
 
            [I, among others, reason that these official levels apply to these two in the Saiyan arc, after Kami’s lost considerable power due to old age since he last trained himself for anything, and Popo inversely has been training alongside the Earthlings. Back almost 10 years ago immediately after the fiasco with King Piccolo, they could be anything you imagine them to be.]
 
Saibaimen ~ 1,200
 
            [Yaaaaay, official numbers.]
 
Nappa – 4,000
            “Full Power” – 4,500
             (Max Vs Goku – ~6,000?)

 
            [Many power levels enthusiasts will no doubt be delighted to learn that official evidence does in fact exist to support Nappa having a battle power higher than his commonly-listed 4,000. An old pamphlet for movie 3 listed him at 4,500 instead. Absolutely groundbreaking.

            On top of that, according to Toriyama there's apparently a thing where if Saiyans can hang in there and keep fighting well in an uphill battle, their power will actually rapidly rise to close the gap. This may be what happened for Nappa towards the end of his fight when he actually started challenging Goku, but isn't really necessary, so I included it as a hypothetical.]
 
 
Vegeta – 18,000
            Oozaru – 90,000
            Battle-Worn – 4,000
 
            [Vegeta had, like Gohan above, taken quite a beating by the time he went Oozaru. Not to mention simply creating the fake moon to transform drained even more power from him. But his strength once he did was still far more than Goku could handle, even with a hypothetical Kaio-Ken x5. His power after being ripped out of the form and then hit with a Spirit Bomb was still enough to take out everyone else, but not enough to handle getting a giant semi-Oozaru Gohan dropped on him.]
 
Son Goku – 5,000
            Full Power – 8,000
            Kaio-Ken/x2 – 16,000
            Kaio-Ken x3 – 24,000
            Kaio-Ken x4 – 32,000
 
            [These numbers for Goku are all pretty self-explanatory. There’s a plethora of potential explanations for why Vegeta wasn’t wiped out or even seriously wounded by Goku’s KKx4 Kamehameha. His own Gallic Gun lessened the impact, Goku’s power was less than the full 32,000 because of the strain of his prior KKx3, Vegeta’s just a durable mofo… and so forth. Take your pick.]
 
 
                        THE TOTALLY RELAXING AND UNEVENTFUL TRIP TO PLANET NAMEK
 
Son Gohan – 1,400
            Vs. Ginyu Force – 14,000
Kuririn – 1,800
            Vs. Ginyu Force – 13,000
 
            [Pretty sure the 14 and 13 thousand numbers for these two against the Ginyu Force are official. The pre-unlocking numbers here would average out to the “about 1,500” that was used against the two Freeza goons who showed up and wrecked the ship. ]
 
Nail – 42,000
Dende – 20
            Power Unlocked – 2,000
 
            [Not enough power level lists include Dende, if you ask me.]
 
 
Freeza – 530,000
            Vs. Nail – 85,000
 
            [Freeza is kind enough to let us and Nail know his “true” power level at this point, though he says he won’t use all of it against Nail. That 85,000 figure from the Movie 3 pamphlet is awfully convenient to have laying around.]
 
Vegeta – 24,000
            Vs. Zarbon, Recoome – 30,000
Kwi – 18,000
Dodoria – 22,000
Zarbon – 23,000
            Transformed – 32,000
            Roughed Up – 27,000
 
            [Kwi, Dodoria, and pretty-boy Zarbon’s power levels are official, as is Vegeta’s when he fought them. Zarbon’s power when transformed as well as Vegeta’s during their rematch are just conjecture. Vegeta would actually be “almost 30,000,” as (eventually) stated in the manga, but rounding is par for the course with power levels. I think Zarbon was probably still a little ahead of him, but Vegeta’s tactics and effective first strike in their rematch let him undo that advantage and gain the edge in their fight.]
 
 
Gurd – 6,000
Recoome – 42,000
Butta – 41,000
Jheese – 45,000
Captain Ginyu – 120,000
            In Goku's body – 23,000
 
            [The numbers for the Ginyu Force members (save for Ginyu himself, both while in his own body and Goku’s) are obviously conjecture. The 40k-ish range is near-universally considered a good place to put them all, with Ginyu figuring that a roughly 60k power could school them the way Goku did. Plus, Vegeta put up an admirable fight against Recoome, but ultimately did little more than superficial damage.
            Butta and Jheese are stated to have about the same amount of Ki as Recoome, though I gave Jheese a very slight edge over the other two, what with him supposedly being second-in-command and my suspicion that his “specialty” is Ki attacks (given his ‘Crusher Ball’ attack being treated like something special). Gurd, the exception, is a relative weakling whom Gohan and Kuririn would have easily spanked if not for his time-stopping and telekinesis powers.]
 
 
Son Goku – 90,000
            Suppressed – 5,000
            Kaio-Ken – 180,000
 
            [Goku being at 5,000 while suppressed and at 180,000 with a Kaio-Ken are stated in the manga, and his normal 90,000 level is easy enough to extrapolate from the latter as well as listed in the guidebooks.]
 
 
                        A PLEASANT OUTING WITH THE ESTEEMED MISTER FREEZA
 
Vegeta – 250,000
            "Super Saiyan" – 2,300,000
Piccolo – 35,000
            Merged with Nail – 1,500,000
Son Gohan – 200,000
            Angry – Lots more.
Kuririn – 75,000
 
            [Vegeta’s power in the first round against Freeza is an official number. A little hard to swallow, but no more so than Nappa’s (…wait a sec). He was depending a lot on his backup and everyone’s power continuing to increase. His “Super Saiyan” power is at least stronger than third-form Freeza, but still easily wrecked by what Freeza’s true form ended up packing.
            Piccolo’s levels before and after his merger with Nail are just my best guesses. Pre-merger, he was strong enough to impress Nail and confident about taking on a power which he only knew was even greater than Vegeta’s on Earth. Some may see “only” 35k as low-balling him a bit, but 10x his prior strength seems pretty darn impressive to me for the short amount of time he’d been training on Kaio’s. His post-merger level is strong enough to tango with second-form Freeza on equal footing.
            Gohan and Kuririn’s levels are official numbers, supposedly at the start of the fight with Freeza, but they could also be at the end for all I know. Either way, Gohan’s power increased by a noticeable chunk after he was beaten up by Freeza and then healed by Dende.]
 
Son Goku – 3,000,000
            Kaio-Ken x10 – 30,000,000
            Kaio-Ken x20 – 60,000,000
            Super Saiyan – 150,000,000
 
            [Most official power levels in the guidebooks are for Goku, and most others stem from characters matching up against Goku in some way. Goku’s completely covered by official numbers for his battle with Freeza. He seems to do well enough against Freeza, until the tyrant starts using his 50% power or something close to it. Goku needs to use the Kaio-Ken x10 just to not get killed, much less keep putting up a fight. A Kamehameha fueled by a Kaio-Ken x20 only matches Freeza’s 50% and annoys him. But finally, a whopping 50x increase from Super Saiyan makes Goku superior to Freeza even at 100%, and lands him the title of the new strongest dude in the universe.]
 
 
Freeza (First Form) – 530,000
Second Form – 1,100,000
            Power-Up 1 – 1,300,000
            Power-Up 2 – 1,500,000
Third Form – 2,000,000
True Form – 4,000,000
            50% Power – 60,000,000
            100% Power – 120,000,000
 
            [Freeza does a LOT of transforming and powering-up, but since we’ve got a starting and ending level for him, it’s easy enough to place his forms in between. His first form has a stated maximum right in the manga. His second form starts out at “over one million,” before powering up twice (Vs. Gohan, then Vs. Piccolo). His third form is too much for Piccolo to handle. His true form is beyond Vegeta’s expectations, and only Goku can stand up to it. Then we’ve got an official 50% and maximum power to go by, each matching up with Goku in various ways.]
               
 
                        GREETINGS, FROM THE WORLD OF TOMORROOOOOW
 
Future Gohan – 3,200,000
            Super Saiyan – 160,000,000
Kid Trunks – 50,000
            Super Saiyan – 2,500,000
Future Android 17 – 260,000,000
Future Android 18 – 240,000,000
 
            [Young Trunks is, apparently, still quite the work in progress, and weak enough compared to Gohan that his elder can repel his Super Saiyan blows in just his normal form. The last time they fought, Android 17 used “less than half” of his power to beat Gohan, and, not knowing that, Gohan thinks he can beat the Androids now. He’s woefully mistaken.
            The Androids are said to be moderately less powerful than their “past” selves, and while for a long time I resisted the idea, apathy has changed my mind. There’s a whole heckuva lot of potential reasons why they’re less powerful – I favor the idea that their maximum level simply degrades over time with heavy use of their power, the same way a rechargeable battery will hold less and less juice later into its lifespan.]
 
Cyborg Freeza – 150,000,000
King Cold – 90,000,000
 
            [Freeza’s become strong enough through his new cybernetic enhancements that he thinks he can defeat Goku now, so I figure he’s at least probably matched him. Sadly, he doesn’t anticipate Goku getting stronger as well, so the relative power gap between them hasn’t changed, and on top of that nobody expected the Spanish Inquisition Trunks to show up.
            King Cold is said to be somewhat weaker than Freeza, and while one of the Dragon Books heavily implies that he can transform, we’re still in the dark about whether we saw him in his true form or a suppressive one. I think it’s more likely a suppressive one, but regardless, I think this is where he’d cap out at his absolute best.]
               
Trunks – 3,600,000
            Super Saiyan – 180,000,000
Son Goku – 3,800,000
            Super Saiyan – 190,000,000
 
            [Trunks is stronger now than Gohan when he died, but still gets his ass whooped by his future Androids on a regular basis (even while they apparently hold back on him somewhat like they did with Gohan). He’s at least able to smoke Freeza with relative ease, though it’s likely Freeza didn’t get a chance to go up to 100% power. Goku is a bit stronger than Trunks, impressing him greatly even though neither of them really put much effort into their little test-skirmish.]
 
 
                        SO MANY ANDROIDS, SO LITTLE TIME
 
Son Goku – 5,000,000
            Super Saiyan – 250,000,000
            Sick – 215,000,000
            Sick and Drained – 50,000,000
 
Vegeta – 5,400,000
            Super Saiyan – 275,000,000
            Drained – 65,000,000
 
Trunks – 4,400,000
            Super Saiyan – 220,000,000
               
            [Goku has improved a lot, but I reckon not as much as he could have, since he started out training with people much weaker than him. His power would only increase substantially once Piccolo gained enough power to be a worthwhile sparring partner for a Super Saiyan, and that probably would have taken a while. His initial power even while sick is still pretty damn impressive, and presumably even greater than whatever his friends felt from him three years prior. But it gets bad enough, combined with 19 absorbing his Ki, that he ends up helpless.
            Vegeta, meanwhile, worked his ass off and in addition to becoming a Super Saiyan has managed to become even stronger than Goku. His power is drained enough from fighting Android 19 and pulling off a Big Bang Attack finisher that he’d most likely have lost to Android 20.
            Trunks has also improved decently in whatever time he had, but he doesn’t quite measure up to Goku or Vegeta, though he’s still considered in the same general range as them.]
 
Piccolo – 190,000,000
Gohan – 4,000,000
Kuririn – 150,000
Tenshinhan –60,000
Yamcha – 40,000
 
            [Piccolo and Gohan have both benefited greatly from training with Goku; Piccolo’s now way up there in the same broad tier as the Super Saiyans, and Gohan would also be so if he was, well, a Super Saiyan. But he’s not yet, so yeah.
            The Earthlings have improved as well, though mostly through the Namekian Grand Elder’s ritual for Kuririn and training on Kaio’s for the others. Given his official-as-it-gets stated superiority throughout the rest of the series and even as late as Battle of Gods… Kuririn’s still got a very wide lead on the others at this point, with even Tenshinhan only pushing half his strength (and that’s being generous).]
 
Android 19 – 60,000,000
            + Absorbed Ki – 130,000,000
Android 20 (Dr. Gero) – 90,000,000
            + Absorbed Ki – 150,000,000
 
            [Androids 19 and 20 start off relatively low-powered compared to the heroes, before increasing their power substantially through absorbing Ki. But it’s still not enough, as 19 gets obliterated by Vegeta and 20 gets manhandled by Piccolo.]
 
Android 18 – 340,000,000
Android 17 – 360,000,000
Android 16 – 480,000,000
 
            [THESE Androids, on the other hand, are quite a different story. Vegeta puts up an admirable fight against No. 18 at first, until she stops screwing around and completely schools him. 17 is even stronger than her, fighting equally with the merged Piccolo later. 16 is even significantly stronger than that, even though he doesn’t opt to show it until later against Cell.]
 
 
                        EVERYTHING’S GOING TO CELL IN A HANDBASKET.
 
Piccolo – 380,000,000
 
            [Piccolo’s a total powerhouse after his re-merger with Kami, trumping the Super Saiyans and Cell’s initial power, and proving an even match for Android 17. I like to think Pic had a slight edge in raw power, while 17's got an advantage in speed and resilience, not to mention that pesky "never tiring" thing. Piccolo sadly gets his butt kicked when Cell shows up drastically stronger after absorbing a bunch of humans, though.]
 
Cell (Stage 1) – 300,000,000
            Humans Absorbed – 500,000,000
Cell (Stage 2) – 700,000,000
            Full Power – 900,000,000
Perfect Cell – 1,100,000,000
            Vs Vegeta & Trunks – 1,600,000,000
 
            [Cell starts out stronger than the Super Saiyans but still weaker than Piccolo and the Android twins. He comes back stronger than all of the above and an even match for Android 16. After absorbing No. 17 and transforming, Cell can now school all his prior foes, but even after powering up further he gets his ass kicked by “Super Vegeta.” After weaseling his way into absorbing No. 18 as well and reaching his perfect form, he still seems inferior to Vegeta at first. But after getting serious, he’s only surpassed, though not defeated, by Trunks’ fantastic-but-flawed Super Saiyan Grade 3 power.]
 
Vegeta – 18,000,000
            Super Saiyan – 900,000,000
            Super Saiyan Grade 2 – 1,300,000,000
 
Trunks – 16,000,000
            Super Saiyan – 800,000,000
            Super Saiyan Grade 2 – 1,200,000,000
            Super Saiyan Grade 3 – 1,800,000,000
 
            [After his first session in the Room of Spirit and Time, Vegeta comes out fantastically more powerful than before. He’s implied to already be a match for 2nd-form Cell with just Super Saiyan, yet he cements his superiority by using Grade 2. But it’s not enough against Perfect Cell, who whoops his butt good.
            Trunks is “almost as strong” as Vegeta overall, and shows the same prowess with Grade 2. But after Vegeta’s beaten, he goes even further by using Grade 3. His power in the form handily surpasses Perfect Cell’s at the time, but its speed-killing drawbacks cripple the form’s effectiveness in battle and prevent him from winning the fight.]
 
                               
                        SHALL WE PLAY A GAME?
 
Mister Satan – 6
               
            [The strongest man in the world… among regular human shmoes, anyway.]
               
Perfect Cell – 3,200,000,000
            Worn Out – 2,000,000,000
            Full Power – 4,800,000,000
            Bulked Up – 6,400,000,000
            "Super Perfect" – 7,000,000,000
 
            [Cell starts the party off at a level which Goku can have a fantastic fight against, one which leaves Cell worn-out enough that everybody (well, Piccolo and the Super Saiyans) could gang up on him and beat him, before Goku goes “naaaah” and gives him a Senzu. After Gohan goes Super Saiyan 2, Cell responds by upping the ante to his full power… which Gohan proceeds to pummel relentlessly. Cell takes things even further, adopting more power in a speed-hindered Grade 3-like form, but he still doesn’t measure up to Gohan. After nearly dying and regenerating, Cell has gained a new Super Saiyan 2-like “Super Perfect” state, which is a match for Gohan and nearly beats him. Nearly.]
 

Cell Juniors – 2,000,000,000
 
            [The Cell Juniors are wickedly strong little buggers, giving Vegeta and Trunks a hard time and barely allowing Vegeta to hold his own. Piccolo also manages to remain standing against them, but Goku is pretty much helpless, being too worn out after his fight with Cell. I ain’t even gonna bother quantifying how badly they outclass the Earthlings. They get massacred in one hit each by a blood-lusted Super Saiyan 2 Gohan, though.]
 
Son Goku – 56,000,000
            Super Saiyan – 2,800,000,000
            Tired – 1,000,000,000
 
            [After emerging from the Room of Spirit and Time, just roughly half of Goku’s power is already fantastic and surpasses “Super Vegeta.” His full power at the Cell Games outstrips all the other heroes (except Gohan) and gives Cell the fight of his life, but he’s left too tuckered out to put up a fight against the Cell Junior who targets him.]
 
Son Gohan – 70,000,000
            Super Saiyan – 3,500,000,000
            Super Saiyan 2 – 7,000,000,000
            Injured – 3,000,000,000
            Final Kamehameha Burst – 8,000,000,000
 
            [Given how Gohan was so strong that it seemed like Goku and Cell were holding back to him, I’m gonna say Gohan had quite a power advantage over his dad, and even over the power Cell was using to fight them both. This means that when Gohan goes Super Saiyan 2 and doubles his power level, he becomes so strong that Cell can’t measure up to him even with two sizable power-ups of his own. When injured by taking Cell’s unexpectedly strong attack, Gohan loses more than half his power, and is quickly losing the subsequent Kamehameha clash. But he manages to summon his full power back at the crucial final moment and overcome Cell. That’s labeled as his “greatest power” by a few sources, so I figure he must have pushed himself a bit beyond his prior normal SS2 power]
               
Vegeta – 36,000,000
            Super Saiyan – 1,800,000,000
            Enraged - 5,000,000,000
Trunks – 34,000,000
            Super Saiyan – 1,700,000,000
            Dead - 0
Piccolo – 1,200,000,000
 
            [Gohan and Goku aren’t the only ones who improved. Vegeta and Trunks’ second trips into the Room of Spirit and Time, and Piccolo’s first, results in all of them powering up quite a bit. Vegeta now considers himself at least strong enough to defeat the Cell who beat him, with Trunks not too far behind, and both of them have apparently ditched the superfluous ‘Grades’ in favor of working with good ol’ Super Saiyan the same way Goku and Gohan did. Piccolo’s made considerable gains as well, noted as being “on a whole different level” by Goku, though still not enough to measure up to Cell.
            I decided to list a "rage boosted" level for Vegeta here, sort of as a quasi-retcon tie-in to
Battle of Gods. Because why the heck not.]

 
                        BACK TO THE FUTURE
 
Future Android 17 – 260,000,000
Future Android 18 – 240,000,000
 
Cell – 500,000,000
 
Trunks – 34,000,000
            Super Saiyan – 1,700,000,000
3 Years Later – 50,000,000
            Super Saiyan – 2,500,000,000
 
            [The future Androids 17 and 18 are both just as strong as when last Trunks faced them. Trunks, however, has gotten a LOT stronger than before thanks to his excellent adventure through time, and easily reduces them both to crispy little chunks. When Cell shows up, he thinks there’s no way Trunks could have defeated the Androids, much less beat him, which would probably mean he’s snacked on enough humans to be stronger than them. Sadly for him, he’s wrong. So very, very wrong. Even more wrong than he would have been 3 years ago, since now Trunks has gotten even stronger. Not massively stronger since he’s got no training partners around, but still quite a bit.]
 
               
                        SALAGADOOLA, MECHICKA BOOLA, BIBBIDY BOBBIDY BOO
 
Son Gohan – 68,000,000
            Super Saiyan – 3,400,000,000
            Super Saiyan 2 – 6,000,000,000
            Ultimate Warrior – 150,000,000,000
 
            [Gohan’s gotten a little weaker since the Cell Games, what with slacking off the whole time and all, but to reconcile some guidebook information with the manga, most of his power loss is “from the top down” and limited to Super Saiyan 2. His power in that form is still enough to restore “almost half” of Majin Boo’s power. His apparent inability or unwillingness to pull out SS2 on command means he has an uphill fight against Dabra. But once the Elder Kaioshin pulls out all his dormant power and more, “Ultimate” Gohan is then on a whole different level of power, soundly surpassing SS3 Goku and even edging out SS3 Gotenks.]
 
Vegeta – 72,000,000
            Super Saiyan – 3,600,000,000
            Super Saiyan 2 – 7,200,000,000
Dormant power unleashed – 90,000,000
            Super Saiyan – 4,500,000,000
            Super Saiyan 2 – 9,000,000,000
 
            [Vegeta’s become slightly stronger than Gohan from seven years ago, and especially stronger than the weaker current Gohan. But despite how much he’s improved, he’s still Goku’s clear inferior until he lets Bobbidi give him a boost.]
 
Son Goku – 90,000,000
            Super Saiyan – 4,500,000,000
            Super Saiyan 2 – 9,000,000,000
            Super Saiyan 3 – 36,000,000,000
 
            [Goku’s improved a lot in the Other World and at the Boo arc’s onset he is now the top Super Saiyan once again, especially with Super Saiyan 3. He could have taken out Fat Boo if he wanted to, and could also have managed to beat Pure Boo later if Super Saiyan 3’s energy drain hadn’t gotten the best of him.]
                   
Piccolo – 1,800,000,000
 
            [Piccolo’s always training and has no doubt become more powerful, though with the world at peace and the Super Saiyans soundly outclassing him, he probably only trains on a more casual level nowadays. So his increases aren’t much compared to that of Goku or Vegeta.]
 
Mr. Satan – 6.66
Videl – 9
            After Gohan's training – 25
Kuririn – 150,000
Yamcha – 35,000
Tenshinhan – 100,000
 
            [Videl starts out already stronger than Mr. Satan, unbeknownst to her, and just gets even better after Gohan teaches her how to use Ki. Tenshinhan is the only one of the super-duper Earthlings to have significantly improved since the Cell Games, though Kuririn still has a big lead on him, being firmly touted everywhere as the strongest Earthling during this period.
            Oh, hey, I forgot Chaozu. Uh…]
 
Son Goten – 28,000,000
            Super Saiyan – 1,400,000,000
Trunks – 32,000,000
            Super Saiyan – 1,600,000,000
Android 18 – 350,000,000
 
            [The two half-Saiyan kids are extraordinarily strong for their age, already being soundly superior to 18 as Super Saiyans even when not using full power. To fit in with all the cool kids, I’ve bumped up their power levels since my last list, to better fit how they could potentially surpass Gohan before long. But compared to their seniors, they’re still really only of any use via Fusion. Whether these numbers specifically are before or after their Room of Spirit and Time session is up for you to decide, because I don’t see any sign that they improved noticeably as individuals.]

Kibito – 50,000,000

Kaioshin – 2,500,000,000
            Merged – 10,000,000,000
               
             [Kibito’s pretty strong, with a high enough battle power to give base Gohan a tough fight. Kaioshin’s far stronger than that, trumping Piccolo but falling short of Dabra or the Super Saiyan adults. When Kaioshin merges with Kibito, I figure he’s bumped up to at least a high Super Saiyan 2 level, though that’s still not any good against Majin Boo. Even against Pure Boo later, his power is outweighed by his incompetence compared to Vegeta, who stays behind to help fight while Kaioshin doesn’t.
            I like to think it’s possible that Kaioshin wields the same type of “godly ki” elaborated upon in Battle of Gods (which would certainly make him a “different order of being,” to quote Viz), given how the heroes had trouble sensing and judging he and Kibito’s power. It might be the case, and it might not be. But to keep things simple, I’m just gonna list equivalent numbers for them anyway based upon their performance against others.]
 
Spopovich – 30
Yamu – 25
 
            [These guys have their power drawn beyond their limits by Bobbidi, and gain some basic ki-based abilities as a result, but given that they were only regular human shmoes before that, the result doesn’t have to be anything astounding by the superhuman heroes’ standards. All that’s really required is for Spopovich to be a match for Videl, but his main advantage is his freakish zombie-like resistance to damage.]
 
Pui-Pui – 180,000
Yakon – 100,000,000
Dabra – 4,000,000,000
 
            [Each of Bobbidi’s minions are far more powerful than the last, intended to be overkill against whichever Saiyan defeated the previous one. But they’re each still easily beaten in various ways, of course. I really like the thematic idea that each of these guys represents a past major foe, and it certainly fits with how their fights progressed, so I rolled with it.
            Pui-Pui thinks 10x Earth’s gravity is a big deal, as an obvious callback to the Saiyan arc, so I made him equivalent to Vegeta (his Oozaru form specifically, putting him in the sextuple-digits in PL to give him some credit as one of “the universe’s strongest warriors”) but is easily smoked by the infinitely-improved current Vegeta. Yakon is similar to Freeza, having universe-wide notoriety and being too much for the base Saiyans to handle, but firmly inferior to Super Saiyan (and especially to a burst of SS2 power). Finally, Dabra is directly compared to Cell, and presents an uphill battle for SS1 Gohan, but any of the Saiyans’ “true power,” i.e. Super Saiyan 2, would make short work of him. Heck, Goku wouldn’t even need it.]
 
Gotenks – 150,000,000
            Super Saiyan – 7,500,000,000
Post-RoSaT – 300,000,000
            Super Saiyan – 15,000,000,000
            Super Saiyan 3 – 120,000,000,000             
 
            [Goku predicts that Super Saiyan Gotenks would be able to defeat the fat Majin Boo, and so I’ll sort of take his word for it and have Gotenks at least on-par with the big blubbery beast. But only after his Room of Spirit and Time session. Before it, when he first forms, he’s a “work in progress” of sorts who still needs training, and according to Daizenshuu #7 he starts off somewhat weaker than Vegeta. But his training time fixes that, leaving him quite a bit stronger. At Super Saiyan 3 he ends up matching Evil Boo and soundly surpassing everyone else until Gohan shows up to temporarily steal the show.]
                                   
Majin Boo – 15,000,000,000
            Good Boo6,000,000,000
            Pure Evil Boo 9,000,000,000
Evil Boo – 100,000,000,000
            + Gotenks – 220,000,000,000
            + Gohan – 250,000,000,000
            + Piccolo, Goten, & Trunks – 105,000,000,000
Buff Boo – 120,000,000,000
Pure Boo – 30,000,000,000
 
            [Fat Boo seems to fit comfortably to me at a little under 2x stronger than the Super Saiyan 2s (with Gohan’s SS2 energy gathered by Spopovich and Yamu restoring “almost half” of his power), and despite Vegeta putting up an admirable fight, Boo’s regeneration is just too darn broken to overcome without the use of Fusion or Super Saiyan 3.
            To this day I’m still not sure what to make of Boo’s power after his split compared to later when he fought Pure Boo. For the time being, I’m assuming that Boo really did lose over half his power from the split, but somehow gained it back during all the absorption shenanigans for his fight during the finale later. Pure Evil Boo didn’t pop back out either, so one way or another the ingredients of Evil Boo did get shuffled around yet again.
            Anyway, the two halves are rejoined to form Evil Boo, who’s far more powerful than his prior self and a close match for Super Saiyan 3 Gotenks. He absorbs Gotenks to kick Gohan’s butt, but then drops back down to a level Gohan can definitely take care of once Gotenks’ Fusion runs out and Piccolo becomes his primary power-booster. After absorbing Gohan he’s even stronger than before, but still gets his sorry ass whooped by Vegetto.
            Once all absorptions are removed from him, he reverts to his original “Pure” state, which is a more-or-less equal match for Super Saiyan 3 Goku, only “beating” him in battle due to SS3’s massive energy drain and ultimately destroyed by a sufficiently overkill Spirit Bomb.]
 
Vegetto – ZOMG
            Super Saiyan – ERROR
 
            [Vegetto has always been high-and-above the strongest thing in DBZ (outside of folks in Battle of Gods whose strength is “not expressed in battle power” anyway), so I’ve never bothered listing an actual number for him before. I see no reason to start now!]
 
                        IT'S LIKE FUTURE TRUNKS' TIME EXCEPT LESS DEATH-Y
 
Son Goku – 110,000,000
Vegeta – 95,000,000
Son Goten – 24,000,000
Trunks -28,000,000
Mister Satan – 5.5
Mister Boo – 15,000,000,000
Pan – 40,000
Oob – 50
            Pissed Off – A lot stronger.
 
            [Just a note – I’m not factoring in anything major from the new movies or Super in these post-Boo numbers. I like Battle of Gods and Resurrection F quite a lot, and at one point I was interested to see how they’d continue things leading up to the manga’s epilogue. But that torch has been since picked up by Super, which clearly has no interest in telling a consistent and coherent story that stays at all in line with the manga. So in turn I have no interest in accommodating Super, and I’ll just let these manga-based numbers continue being manga-based numbers.
            Anyhoo, all the heroes’ powers have changed in some way or another. Goku and Vegeta have gotten moderately stronger, having drive but not really any extra-special ways to improve drastically. Plus, Toriyama’s commented that he feels they’ve more or less hit their limits in terms of growth and age after the Boo arc, which I don’t take to mean they can’t get any stronger at all, only that they’ll no longer gain power in significant amounts.
            Goten and Trunks keep getting weaker because they’re slackers. Ol’ Mark’s strength has probably waned somewhat with his age. Mister Boo’s probably the only one who’s exactly the same. Why? I’m not exactly sure. He just strikes me as working that way. Pan is promising, but still quite young. Oob starts off remarkably strong for a normal Earthling, enough so to sweep the World Tournament’s prelims, but only measuring up at all to the superhuman heroes once Goku gets him to fly into a rage.]

Captain Chicken – 500,000,000,000

                [We all know who the TRUE hero of the series is.]
