The Kaiō of the North (
At some point in the past, he and the Hakaishin Beerus played a game of racecar, which Beerus lost. The Hakaishin was angry from the lost and destroyed most of North Kaiō's planet, resulting in the planet appearing so small.
At another point in the past, North Kaiō created the Genki Dama and the Kaiōken, while he never mastered the latter. He also trained Enma, the first person before Son Gokū to make it across Serpent Road.
The Kaiō of the North is a man of humor and simple pleasures, seeing himself as much of a master of puns as he is a martial arts master. His eccentricities flow into his training methods, as one of them involved Gokū catching a monkey to adjust to his planet's gravity. Despite this, and his easygoing nature, the Kaiō of the North is very much an intelligent man, being responsible for the creation of techniques like the Kaiōken and the Genki Dama, both of which are techniques that require precise control to utilize fully.
While he is a god, the Kaiō of the North has been shown to have limited patience with the likes of Gokū, and holds a grudge against the latter for resulting in his death. Furthermore, he dislikes the Saiyan's near-constant presence on his planet, and utilization of it for training and far more infrequent bomb disposals.
As a master of martial arts, North Kaiō possessed many abilities, being the creator of the Genki Dama and the Kaiōken. He also trained many martial arts masters himself, such as Enma and Son Gokū. North Kaiō surpasses both Raditz and Enma in strength, the latter being strong than the former. Despite his accomplishments, he claimed that Vegeta and Nappa, two elite Saiyans, surpassed him in strength. He also possesses the ability to heal wounds completely, having healed Gokū after the latter's fight with Beerus. He is also claimed to possess the means to restore his diminutive planet to its proper size, but chooses not to for some reason.
While he is not often shown fighting, during a brief glimpse of his training Gokū, North Kaiō is shown to utilize powerful palm strikes.

In order to restore his planet, North Kaiō invited Muri to summon Polunga the end of the Serpent Road. While Kaiō hesitated whether items like a dedicated racing area and the ten-times normal gravity would restore as well or not, Gokū suddenly appeared behind Kaiō, exclaimed that would be no good for his training and then wished the planet should be exactly the same as before, have the Kaiō gasp in horror. Gokū then bid them farewell before Kaiō dropped to knees, not hiding his disappointment.
