Key: This list is now "color blind friendly."
Color Type What It Means
1,000,000 Manga These powerlevels were never stated in the series, but were stated in the Japanese Mangas and Guide books. There is NO disputing these. They came from Toriyama himself!
1,000,000 Scouter Reading These levels cam directly from scouter readings in the JAPANESE version of DBZ.
Ex: "Hmm.. the scouter only says 5,000."
1,000,000 Stated These levels are stated by characters in the JAPANESE version of DBZ.
Ex: "His powerlevel is more like 90,000" or "Sybamen have 1,200 each"
1,000,000 Guesstimate These levels are calculated based on Stated and Scouter levels as well as "who can beat who"
Ex: Gohan can beat Cell, so his level is higher.


Start of Dragonball Z

Radditz vs. Farmer

Radditz:
1,200
Farmer with Shotgun:
5

Radditz gets shot at by the farmer, and then returns his bullet to him in a friendly way.
Raditz vs. Goku and Piccolo

Radditz:
1,500
Piccolo
(with weighted clothing) : 322
Piccolo
(without weighted clothing) : 408
Piccolo's Makankosappo
(1st Try) : 1,330
Piccolo's Makankosappo
(2nd Try) : 1,440
Goku
(with weighted clothing) : 330
Goku
(without weighted clothing) : 416
Goku
(with Kamehameha) : 924
Gohan:
1 to 1,307 (his power changes with his emotions)

Goku teams up with Piccolo in effort to defeat Raditz, Raditz uses his scouter to identify Goku, and Piccolo, and is stuned by Gohan's awsome power level.

After the Battle (Search for Tien and Chaouzu)

Roshi:
139
Roshi's Turtle:
0.001
Krillin:
206
Tien:
250
Yamucha: 177
Chaozu: 145

These levels pretty much speak for themselves. They come from directly after the battle with Raditz where Bulma uses Raditz's scouter to locate Tenshinhan, Chaozu, and Yamcha (this part was cut from the American version of DBZ)

Z Fighters vs. Sybamen and Napa

Saibamen:
1,200
Yamcha:
1,480
Krillin:
1,083
Krillin: 1,750
Tienshinhan:
1,830
Chaozu:
610
Piccolo:
1,220
Piccolo:
3,500
Gohan:
981
Gohan: 2,800

Notice that the scouter reading and the characters actual readings are different. This is due to the fact that the Z Fighters can mask some of their Ki while not in battle. Although the masked vs actual levels are not that different right now, the difference becomes more evident in the Freeza saga as the fighters learn how to use it more effectively.

Goku vs. Vegeta and Napa

Goku:
8,000
9,000 kaioken x1
16,000 kaioken x2
24,000 kaioken x3
32,000 kaioken x4
Nappa:
4,000
Vegeta:
18,000
Ozouru Vegeta: 180,000
Ozouru Gohan: 28,000

Take note: at Kaioken x4, Goku's powerlevel is 4 times his normal level, this explains the multiplied levels for Kaioken x2 and x3. Although, it is assumed that Kaioken x1 offers some (but not much) speed boost.

Although Vegeta's Ozouru level is listed as a guess, I can guarantee its 100% correct. A saiyan's power increases 10 times in the Ozouru state, hence Vegeta's 18,000 ups to 180,000.

Gohan and Krillin vs. Freeza's Thugs

Gohan:
14,000
Krillin:
13,000
Freeza's Thugs: < 10,000


At this point, Freeza's thugs have an extremely low level. This is evident because Gohan and Krillin dispatch them in under five seconds! 0_o

Vegeta vs. Kui

Vegeta:
24,000
Vegeta: 26,000
Kui: 18,000

Although Dudoria's scouter fries when Vegeta tops 24,000, I feel his level is somewhere around 26,000.

Vegeta vs. Dudoria

Vegeta:
24,000
Vegeta: 26,000
Dudoria: 21,000

Vegeta turns the lard ass into pink marshmallows. 'Nuff said.

Vegeta vs. Zarbon (1st time)

Vegeta:
24,000
Vegeta: 26,000
Zarbon: 23,000
Zarbon (Monster): 33,000

Vegeta is only marginally stronger than Zarbon in his first form, however Zarbon is quite a bit stronger than Vegeta after his transformation. He really roughs Vegeta up good.

Vegeta vs. Zarbon (2nd time)

Vegeta: 48,000
Zarbon: 23,000
Zarbon (Monster): 33,000

After spending some time in the healing tube, Vegeta's powerlevel goes up quite a bit, as do all Sayians when they come close to death.

Vegeta, Gohan, Krillin vs. Ginyu Force

Krillin: 30,000

Gohan: 50,000
Vegeta: 48,000
Goldo: 10,000
Recoome: 65,000

Although Gohan has a level very close to that of Recoome, he lacks the fighting experience needed to compete against this very skilled fighter. Gohan's level is even higher, and Vegeta admits this when he says "He [Gohan] may be stronger than me, but he doesn't have the fighting skill to prevail."

Goku vs. Ginyu Force

Goku:
180,000
Jeice: 75,000
Burter: 70,000
Recoome: 65,000
Ginyu:
120,000

Not much explaining to do here. Goku kicks the Ginyu force's ass, and rightly so.

Goku in Ginyu's Body

Ginyu in Goku's Body:
23,000
Vegeta: 138,000
Krillin: 60,000

Gohan: 100,000

Even though Krillin and Gohan are scared shitless of Ginyu, they are much stronger than Ginyu, even when he is in his injured body. (Hey, I would be scared shitless to if a guy WEAKER than Ginyu snapped my neck only a few minutes ago)

Nail vs. Freeza / Vegeta vs. Freeza (1st Time)

Nail:
42,000
Vegeta: 138,000
Freeza (form 1):
530,000
Freeza (form 2):
1,000,000

Even though Nail is the strongest Namek fighter, he doesn't even put a scratch on Freeza.

Although Vegeta appears to be on the same level as Freeza, I suspect that Freeza is holding back in an effort to stun Vegeta and later hurt his biggest weak point, his pride. Also, it is unclear weather 530,000 is Freeza as he is normally, or when he powers up just before transforming to stage 2.

Piccolo vs. Freeza

Piccolo (merged with Nail): 800,000
Freeza (form 2):
1,000,000
Freeza (form 3):
6,000,000

Although Piccolo's level is lower than Freeza, he is an extremely intelligent and skilled fighter. Piccolo is able to read Freeza's attacks. This causes Freeza to become flustered about not being able to easily beat Piccolo like he should, forcing his transformation. Also, Freeza is only using a fraction of his full power, as he does when fighting Vegeta and Goku.

Vegeta vs. Freeza (2nd Time)

Vegeta: 400,000
Freeza (form 4):
12,000,000

At this point, Vegeta is a little off his rocker. He thinks that he is now a Super Saiyan. Although he may have had the potential for going Super Saiyan, he lacked a motivating factor. While Vegeta felt entitled to becoming a Super Saiyan, he did not experience any true anger, as Goku did when Freeza killed Krillin. Also, Freeza is only using a fraction of his full power, as he did when batteling Piccolo and Goku.

Goku vs. Freeza

Freeza (form 4):
12,000,000
Goku:
300,000
Goku Kaioken x10: 3,000,000
Goku Kaioken x20: 6,000,000
Super Saiyan Goku:
15,000,000

As you dubbies have no doubt heard "Freeza was using 1% of his power while fighting Goku. Actualy, its more like 50% (stated in the Japanese show). That is, until Goku goes Super Saiyan. By that time, Its too late. Even at 100% power, Freeza is no match for Super Saiyan Goku.
