Power Level








Talk 55


Redirected from Power level

The Power Level (, Sent Ryoku; literally "combat power" or "fighting strength"), referred to as
Battle Point/Battle Power (BP) in video games, is a concept found in the Dragon Ball franchise
created by Akira Toriyama. It is first introduced in Dragon Ball, where Goku as a kid learns to sense ki
after drinking the Ultra Divine Water, although the Z Fighters are able to detect power levels via the ki
sensing ability eventually.
The highest number ever officially read aloud from a scouter is Captain Ginyu's reading of Goku's
power level, which after powering up, is 180,000. The highest power level ever mentioned in Dragon
Ball Z is Frieza's power level of 1,000,000, stated by Frieza himself after transforming into his Second
form. The highest power level ever officially stated in the Daizenshuu guides is Super Saiyan Goku's
power level of 150,000,000 while battling Frieza on Namek. The overall highest power level officially
stated is 2,500,000,000 of Super Gogeta according to V-Jump.

The use of power levels is to get an estimation of how a battle will fare between two opponents of known
power levels. In general, if one has a higher power level than one's opponent, then he/she can defeat the
one with the weaker power level. For example, "Person A" has a fighting power of 10,000 and "Person B"
has a fighting power of 5,000. "Person A" can most certainly defeat "Person B". However, the factors of
speed, strength, and technique can also come into account when deciding the outcome of a fight.

It should be noted that, when factoring in the edge a fighter has over an opponent, the difference in power
levels as a flat number is apparently not important, but rather, the relative or percentage difference
between the power levels of the two combatants.

Changes in power levels

In general, the power level of a regular person in the Dragon Ball universe seems to remain pretty constant throughout his/her life. Power
levels can be increased, usually very slowly, through intense training or by some other special mean. Some people are able to increase their
power levels faster than others; the most clear example of this is Goku or Gohan.
The power level of most people is usually the same independent of the fact that they are resting or powered-up.
However, there are several important exceptions. The most common way to increase one's power-level
temporarily during a fight is for races or characters that are able to transform into different shapes and alter their
external appearance. Examples include Saiyans (who transform into Great Apes and Super Saiyans), Zarbon,
and Frieza. There are also some people that have learned the skill to change their apparent power level at will,
using a Power Up technique. This allows them to suppress their power level when they wish to appear weaker, to
be undetected or to conserve energy, and to increase their power levels to their maximum during a fight.
Namekians and highly-trained earthlings (such as the Z Fighters) seem to be examples of races that are able to
do this with most ease, though Saiyans are also shown to be able to learn this ability. Other characters known to
possess this ability are Captain Ginyu and Frieza, whose races are unknown. Z Fighters wear weighted training
clothes as part of Kami's intense training, which also suppresses their full strength until they take them off. Some
beings like Cell, Majin Buu, and Naturon Shenron possess the ability to absorb others to increase their power

The movie Dragon Ball Z: The Tree of Might introduces the Fruit of the Tree of Might, a special fruit that gives who ever consumes it a massive
power increase, basically giving to those who have access to it a shortcut to obtaining a greater power level with little to no effort.
Saiyans possess a unique ability called Zenkai that allows them to easily increase their permanent power level. If they fight a strong opponent
and are left almost dead, but are able to recover, they will gain a great amount of power, and increase their maximum level. The first character
to display this in the series is Vegeta. However, it should be noted that it is implied (as part of the series' retroactive continuity) that Goku
displayed this ability as well during his youth in the Dragon Ball series (when Vegeta mentions the ability during his second fight with Zarbon,
and Krillin explains that the same thing used to happen to Goku whenever he survived a fierce battle of the same caliber). This ability also
extends to Half-Saiyans, like Gohan.
The average Human power level is near 5, with exceptionally skilled Humans such as Master Roshi, Krillin or Nam having power levels over that
of 100.
Characters that have mixed Saiyan and human blood seem to display special abilities regarding power levels. They are able to reach high
levels much faster than other races. Their power level at a given time also fluctuates a lot depending on their emotional state. Intense rage, for
example, can make characters like Gohan or Goku Jr. increase their power level significantly for a limited amount of time.

Influence and similarities on other series

Akira Toriyama and his work in the Dragon Ball series has influence in several other manga work. Similar works use an identical kind of "inner
power", and that "inner power" made the characters grow stronger.
Ring ni Kakero (Shonen Jump,77) authored by Masami Kurumada. Many concepts from this series are similar to Dragon Ball, such as
tournament fighting, exciting fighting styles, and chi power.
Masashi Kishimoto states in a message in his manga, Naruto, that he was influenced by Toriyama. In Naruto, the concept similar to ki is
called chakra level; the trademark technique being the Rasengan, which requires a high level of chakra control.
In the manga Saint Seiya, authored by Masami Kurumada, the protagonist Seiya is the titular character of the namesake show. He is one
of the 88 saints of Athena, and serves loyally at her side. Seiya dons the bronze cloth (an armor that denotes sainthood) of Pegasus, and
draws power ("cosmos") from the constellation that connects to it. The saints can grow stronger if they raise higher levels of "cosmos".
Bleach is a manga and anime series by Tite Kubo. All Bleach characters are "souls". Living humans contain souls within their bodies.
Disembodied souls, or spirits, have a form composed of particles of spiritual energy called "Reiatsu" (, Spiritual Pressure), Certain
unique humans naturally have both the power to sense and the strength to fight with spirits. Ordinary humans can gain the ability to
interact with spirits by spending time around a large source of spirit energy. Ichigo Kurosaki is the exact example, and considered to be
one of the strongest characters.
YuYu Hakusho is a manga and anime series by Yoshihiro Togashi. Yu Yu Hakusho characters are either human or yokai (demon), and
have spiritual powers called reiki (for humans) and yoki (for demons). There is also a system of yoki class or equivalent-to-yoki class that
ranges from E-S+, E being the weakest and S class being the strongest level of yokai. Yokai that are soldiers of one of the three of
demon kings, Yomi have devices similar to scouters that let them read an enemy's power level.
Shaman King is a manga and anime series by Hiroyuki Takei. The Shaman King characters are shamans or mediums that uses a spiritual
energy called Furyoku to materialize their spirit guardians. This process is known as Over Soul, and the inner power is measured by an
arm device whose function is similar to a Scouter.
One Piece is a manga and anime series by Eiichiro Oda. Driki (, literally meaning "Power") is a measurement of the power of one's
Rokushiki abilities among the CP9 (Cipher Pol Number 9). It is measured in a similar way to Dragon Ball's power level but in the form of
hitting a member of CP9 (Fukurou) who will then after being hit follow on to tell one his Douriki. However, this measurement of power was
short-lived and was only ever shown to measure the power of the CP9 members and a single marine.
Ghost Sweeper Mikami is a manga and anime series by Takashi Shiina. A type of spiritual energy labelled as reiki is common among all
the characters in the series. It is measured in a fashion similar to the scouters in Dragon Ball, but in more relation to this manga it is
gauged with a ring-shaped measuring device which enlarges from its original ring size, surrounds the target and temporarily drains them
of their spiritual energy. The end result is a rating defined as "might" which can alternatively be seen as a power level.
Claymore, created by Norihiro Yagi, possesses the concept of yoki, which all of the eponymous Claymores (an army of female warriors
working for the mysterious Organization) possess. Yoki is also possessed by a group of carnivorous demons called "yokai", with the
Claymores being human females that are trained and turned into half-yokai hybrids in order to fight them. The Claymores are all ranked
from 1 to 47, with 1 being the strongest and 47 being the weakest. Usually, this ranking is based solely upon the amount of yoki the
individual possesses (Clare, the protagonist is only one-quarter yokai and is ranked at 47). Further, only use a small portion of their yoki
at any given time, but can tap into more of it at the risk of permanently transforming to beasts known as Awakened Beings.
Haiyore! Nyaruko-san, a series of light novels by Manta Aisora (later adapted into several anime), contains a joking reference to Dragon
Ball when the title character Nyaruko (AKA Nyarlathotep) says that she has a fighting power of 530,000 (equivalent to Frieza's first form),
which makes her one of the strongest fighters on Earth; she also mentions that a farmer with a hunting rifle has a power of 5.

Toriko uses a Capture level system, which is used to determine the strength of the creatures living in the Gourmet World. It is highly
similar to Dragon Ball Z, in that the strength of the creatures encountered as the series progresses increases exponentially. The first
measured Capture Level was that of a Garara Gator, which has a Capture Level of 8.
World Trigger is a manga series by Daisuke Ashihara. Trion, an energy created by an organ next to the heart, is used to power Triggers,
powerful weapons that are used against the main antagonists, Neighbors. While most Triggers are white, a black Trigger can be created
using the life force of a person. Black triggers are more powerful than white Triggers. Additionally, when one has a high level of trion, an
extrasensory perception arises. For example, Yma Kuga's side effect is that he can detect lies.
