The mechanical monster Kali, based on the Goddess of Slaughter from Indian mythology, is ZAIN's main defense system developed by Enterprise. It also serves as Faceas Clay's only bodyguard, as he has full confidence in this mechanical wonder. The giant four-armed robot is equipped with a sword, a hanging rope and a skull staff as weapons, which it uses in tandem with its inmense strength to destroy any intruder. Kali itself seems to have some semblance of conscience, but this is all part of the defense system's deception, by making Kali look like a real being rather than a mere machine.
Just as the monstrous machine approaches for a final attack, Hiryu recovers his strength after remembering Kuramoto's words of encouragement and is able to slice off Kali's sword wielding arm as it attacks. With sheer willpower, Hiryu proceeds to slice the machine apart. It's just after the system stops working and the illusion disappears when Hiryu realizes the true nature of Kali and ZAIN's defense system.
