The mechanical monster Kali, also known as the "Goddess of Slaughter" (殺戮の女神), is ZAIN's main defense system developed by Enterprise. It also serves as Faceas Clay's bodyguard, as he has full confidence in this mechanical wonder. The giant four-armed robot counts 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 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.
