182082[1]Players can select Goku’s mentor for the first time in a Dragon Ball fighting game. Namco Bandai announced King Kai is one of the playable characters in Dragon Ball Kai: Ultimate Butouden.


He comes to the ring with an arsenal of practical jokes as special techniques. King Kai can make a giant brick appear, use the "supreme gag," and run over Goku with his car. The pictured attack is called "Driving Hobby."


King Kai is one of the 50+ playable characters in Dragon Ball Kai: Ultimate Butouden. The Nintendo DS is available in Japan now.

    rar, that is all kinds of awesome, also I had no idea this game was going to have 50+ characters >w< But yeah seriously playable King Kai, that's pretty badass~! I'm looking forward to seeing character list, and this might just be the first time I'm dropping money on a DB game in years opo;;

      The last DB game I bought was Burst Limit (I was excited because it was the first HD game) and it was alright.. actually I got Raging Blast but sold it.. and now this just looks amazing on the DS, like the Origins games.King Kai playable!? Now that’s one more reason to get this game, too many releases these two months it’s kinda cray, but so tempting :(.. lol, look at the telephone icon in the middle, it was his ring ring ring joke right?

    I definitely remember using Kaiou in the SSD game thanks to some emulator hacks. Anyway, he had a 4000 power level. Probably inaccurate, since he said Nappa was stronger than him.

  • Still waiting for the announcement that Uub is playable

    • Aara_Malik_Davoodi

      If I’m not mistaken, Uub was playable in Budokai Tenkaichi 3, but then again, almost everyone was playable in that game, except King Kai for some reason

  • So is his Dragon Rush countered by making him laugh?

  • Why hasn’t he been playable in the many dragonball games already out? O_o

    Running over Goku with a car would be like giving him a back massage
