General Information: Kaios Hierarchy
In the world of Dragon Ball there is a hierarchy of Gods that exist. The God of all Gods is Grand Kaioshin(Dai Kaioshin), he is the highest rank of all living things and all other Gods. Unfortunately, he was absorbed by Majin Buu when he was under the control of Bibidi. These Gods are from a race called Kaios. Kaios have special abilities and are to keep peace in the universe. Under Grand Kaioshin are four other Kaioshins, one for each sector of the universe: north, south, east and west. Under those 4 Kaioshins are 4 more Kai, one for each galaxy in a sector of the universe: north, south, east and west. Supreme Kai is the God of four galaxies in the east sector. Below is a chart which can help show you how the hierarchy for the Kaios is:
Although the main Gods are Kaios, there are minor sub-Gods who are in charge of certain taks and can be from any race. These sub-Gods don't quite fit into the hierarchy chart, so a brief explanation on each of them is shown below:
