Power of the Verse
Dragon Ball is a strong verse. In Dragon Ball, there are Wall level to Moon level feats. By Z, the series made moon-busting low-level as it debuted planet-busting in the Saiyan Saga, with following arcs hitting Small Star level by the Frieza Saga, and soon surpassing Star and reaching Solar System level with the Cell and Buu Sagas. In Super, almost from the very beginning, characters reach Universe level with feats like nearly destroying the universe. More characters at this level are introduced, as well as forms that significantly increase that level of strength. Finally, in the Universe Survival Saga, Universe level+ power was reached, with feats such as surpassing time, and exceeding the strength of the villain of the previous arc, who had reached this apex when he merged with space-time on a universal level. The top characters have reached Low Multiverse level with feats such as destroying and restoring multiple universes.
In terms of speed, their speed ranges from Superhuman to Relativistic in Dragon Ball. Z characters have Relativistic+ to at least Massively FTL speeds. In Super, characters reach Massively FTL+ speeds from the very beginning. Despite the relative lack of hax skills, Dragon Ball is impressive in its own right and is considered a high-tier manga verse.
With the release of new material, such as Battle of Gods, Resurrection 'F' and the new anime series Dragon Ball Super, the franchise's canon has officially hit cosmic levels in terms of the Tiering System.

- Note: It has been agreed upon that the Kaio-ken multipliers for speed, as well as the official SSJ speed multiplier of 50x are usable on this site for scaling. SSJ is officially a 50x multiplier in Daizenshuu and the Dragon Ball Super Exciting Guide, however, more than that, it is consistent with the showings in the manga as a 50x speed multiplier specifically as well. Goku using Kaio-ken x10 was being speed blitzed by 50% Frieza, and even Kaio-ken x20 while using a kamehameha was at best equal to 50% Frieza's speed, yet using SSJ allowed Goku to speed blitz 50% Frieza, and even have an edge in speed over 100% Frieza, therefore it is highly consistent with the 50x multiplier assigned to it.
- We use the Kaio-ken multipliers because they are explicitly stated to multiply speed and power by the number stated in the technique. This further extends to the 50x multiplier for SSJ for the reasons listed above. We continue to use Kaio-ken multipliers in DBS as well as the SSJ multiplier, however we do not use other multipliers such as SSJ2, SSJ3 etc. because they are less consistent and not backed up by hard evidence via Kaio-ken multipliers like SSJ is.
Part I: Human-level to at least Large Building level between the Pilaf Saga and 21st Budokai Saga, reaching Moon level by the 22nd Budokai to the 23rd Budokai.
Part II: Planet level in the Saiyan Saga, Small Star level in the Frieza Saga, reaching even Solar System level during the Cell Saga, and higher into Solar System level during the Buu Saga.
Part III: Universe level with the introduction of the Super Saiyan God forms and several characters from other universes, with figures such as Beerus also exhibiting this level of strength. Universe level+ with the introduction of Jiren, Kefla, and Goku's Ultra Instinct form in the Tournament of Power arc, revealing the Gods of Destruction and their Angel attendants, such as Whis, as well as Toppo, a God of Destruction Candidate, being equal to the GoDs, to also sit at this level. Vegeta also obtained a form later into the tournament, qualifying for the same Universe level+ rating as his peers. Fusion Zamasu's infinite form also reached this level in the Future Trunks arc before it and could have reached Low Multiverse level, and finally, Super Shenron and Zen'ō, the Omni-King, currently stand at the top of the series' hierarchy at a solid Low Multiverse level.
Other Media: Other media outlets, such as the anime and movies, closely follow the series in power for the most part, but the anime deviates by the end of the Cell and Buu Sagas by having Galaxy level characters, with the movies having similar levels of strength. Several video games also contain exceedingly strong characters. Android 21 from Dragon Ball FighterZ sits comfortably at Universe level, and Demigra as well as some Xenoverse 1 and 2 characters, along with characters from Dragon Ball Heroes, most notably Xeno Goku, stand at the top of alternative media's hierarchy at Multiverse level+, with power capable of threatening the entirety of the non-canon multiverse, which has an infinite amount of diverging timelines.
Dragon Ball has some notable striking strength feats, as they are capable of destroying planets and beyond with their punches and kicks.
The verse's levels range from Street Class on the lower ends, to Low Multiversal via the Angels.
Characters for the most part lack lifting strength feats, however. Though there are a couple of more noteworthy instances, Vados, with her telekinesis, can move multiple planet-sized objects with ease; and Super Shenron has Multi-Galactic Class lifting strength through sheer size alone.
Ranges from Superhuman to Relativistic in Dragon Ball, reaching Relativistic+ to FTL in early Z, FTL+ to Massively FTL in the Frieza Saga, and at least Massively FTL in the Cell Saga and Buu Saga. Super introduces Massively FTL+ ratings to the order in the hundreds of quadrillions of times FTL, due to Beerus's speed feat in Battle of Gods, to likely in the tens of sextillions of times FTL. Infinite Zamasu would also eventually become Omnipresent through merging with the universe and its space-time.

Super Manga Only
The profiles that cover the Z era strictly use the original manga for scaling the characters. Please don't try to use feats or statements from Dragon Ball Kai to upgrade them, as Kai contains contradictions to the source material. Feats from the Dragon Ball Super anime are allowed for the relevant keys. Feats from the original Dragon Ball Z anime and movies should be applied to the Dragon Ball (Toei) profiles. To see Dragon Ball profiles for video game characters like Xenoverse and Heroes see the Dragon Ball (Games) profiles.
While the way that we currently scale the characters is not perfect, it is the best solution to the multiple inconsistencies throughout the series.
