"Buu make you chocolate!!"
Majin Buu in "Buu Against Buu"

Transfiguration Beam, also known as Change Beam (変化ビーム Henka Bīmu)[6], is an energy wave technique used by all forms of Majin Buu except for Evil Buu. It's most commonly used variant is Chocolate Beam[7] (チョコレートビーム)

Overview

Despite its name, this attack can actually change any object besides of chocolate or person into any type of object regardless of their strength. However, upon transformation, strong opponents can retain enough power to attack. The user usually announces what the attack will turn the victim into before using it. Majin Buu sends the wave of energy by pointing his antenna at his target, while Majuub shoots the beam from his index and middle finger.

Power and Usage

MajinBuuChiChiEgg

Super Buu turns Chi-Chi into an egg

Majin Buu first used the beam to turn Dabura into a cookie, while in the series, Majin Buu uses the beam to turn people from the cities he attacks into food. He also uses it to turn a large number of people into clay to build his house. The Chocolate Beam can also act as a way for Majin Buu to absorb another, as with Evil Buu reflecting the fat Buu's attack,[8] or possibly because the spell was used on another with same power so the victim retains their power without being able to use it as something of a container.

Super Buu turns Vegito into a coffee-flavored jawbreaker

Super Buu uses this attack to turn Chi-Chi into an egg,[9] and later, to turn everyone (excluding Dende) on Kami's Lookout into chocolate to eat them.[10] Super Buu has displayed the ability to fire multiple beams at once. His version also appears to destroy inanimate objects rather than transform them. With Gohan absorbed, Super Buu uses the Chocolate Beam to turn Vegito into a coffee-flavored jawbreaker. However, upon transformation, Super Vegito retain enough power to attack, so Buu turns Candy Vegito back into his regular form.[11] He uses the technique again to transform a boulder into an outhouse when Vegeta and Goku, who are inside him, give him a serious and comical case of indigestion.[12]

When Good Buu tries to use it against Kid Buu, Kid Buu jumps out of the way and blasts a hole through Good Buu. In the anime, this fight is considerably longer and Good Buu attempts to use it two more times; the beam misses its target each time, with the third one ending up hitting a rock and turning it into jawbreakers.[13][14]

Kid Buu attempts to use the attack on Super Saiyan 3 Goku, though Goku manages to avoid the beam by jumping out of the way.

In Dragon Ball GT, Mr. Buu uses the Chocolate Beam on Pan and Mr. Satan so he can eat them, and thus keep them safe (inside his body) from Baby Vegeta.[15] When Baby Vegeta throws Majuub's Chocolate Kamehameha (a combination of the Chocolate Beam and Kamehameha) back at Majuub, Majuub is turned into chocolate and eaten, however, this does not give Baby any extra strength. Majuub earlier utilized the Chocolate Beam to turn everyone on Earth into chocolate in order to ensure they don't interfere with his assault on Baby Vegeta, promising to return to restore them to their original forms afterward.[16]

Variations

  • Transfiguration Beam - The regular version of the attack which all variations come from. This technique allows the user to transform people/objects into almost whatever they want, as shown when Majin Buu turned people into clay for a house, turned an old man into a carton of milk, or when Super Buu turned Chi-Chi into an egg.
    • Chocolate Beam - The most common version of the Transfiguration beam, utilized by Buu in almost all of his incarnations.
      • Majin Beam - A variant of the Chocolate Beam utilized by Majuub, this version is shot from the finger instead of the antenna.
    • Candy Beam - A variation that transforms people and/or inanimate objects into various types of candy and other kinds of sweets. Used by Majin Buu and members of the Majin race, Demon God Demigra also utilizes this variant during his invasion of Toki Toki City to capture and absorb Tokitoki. Named in Dragon Ball Xenoverse. In Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2, it appears as both an Evasive Skill as well as a Super Skill. The Super Skill comes from Super Buu (Gohan Absorbed) which can be used by non-Majin characters as well and is performed slightly definitely than the Evasive Skill but both produce the same effect.[4]
      • Hyper Candy Beam - A stronger version of Candy Beam that appears as a Special Move in Dragon Ball Fusions.
    • Cookie Beam - A variation of the Candy Beam used by Majin Buu on Demon King Dabura to turn him into a cookie. Named in Dragon Ball Xenoverse where it appears as a Ultimate Skill exclusive to Majin Buu. Also appears as Majin Buu's Exclusive Ultimate Skill in Xenoverse 2. Due to gameplay mechanics in the Xenoverse series, Majin will consume the cookie which will cause damage to the opponent, though they will turn back to normal after he consumes their cookie.
    • Hungry Beam - A variation of the attack used by Android 21.
  • Mend Beam - A variant of the beam used by Majin Buu, it does not transform it's target, instead healing any flaws in their body. He was able to use it to grow half of Babidi's body back, to cure a boy's blindness, and later to heal the injured puppy Bee. This technique is called Healing Beam and appears as a Special Move in Dragon Ball Fusions.
    • Super Healing Beam - A stronger version of Healing Beam that appears as a Special Move in Dragon Ball Fusions.
  • Destroyer Ray - A non-transformation variant used by Majin Buu, it damages the opponent instead of transforming them.

Video Game Appearances

Majin Buu's version of this attack is called Destroyer Ray, while Super Buu's version is called Super Destroyer Ray in Dragon Ball Z: Ultimate Battle 22. Both cause damage to the opponent without transforming them.

Character17-4

Chocolate Beam in Zenkai Battle Royale

The technique is called Sweet Beam in Dragon Ball Z: Legendary Super Warriors, Chocolate in Dragon Ball Z: Taiketsu, and Happy Sweets in Dragon Ball Z: Supersonic Warriors 2. Majin Buu transforms into Super Buu to perform it in DBZ: Taiketsu. In Dragon Ball Z: Supersonic Warriors, whenever a character is hit by the Chocolate Beam, they take on the form of a cookie version of themselves. The character can still move around and fly while in this state, but take more damage and cannot attack. They turn back to normal when hit or after a certain amount of time.

The Budokai Tenkaichi series has this attack available for the various forms of Buu, as well as Majuub, although with a notably different use: after the player character uses the Chocolate Beam, the opponent character is turned into a chocolate version of a person. The chocolate-transformed opponent then looks up at the player character, who then looks at him ominously. The chocolate character then attempts to back away, only for the user to perform a physical attack on the transformed character, sending him flying away and turning back into his normal form.

CBF(DBO)

The opponent of a Mighty Majin transformed into a candy

Majin Buu can also use the attack in Battle Stadium D.O.N. The different Buus and Majuub also use the Chocolate Beam in the Japanese arcade game Dragon Ball Heroes, where the opponent is not turned into chocolate, but instead is just hit like a normal beam would. In the game, Majuub's version of the attack is called Majin Beam (魔人ビーム). Additionally, in one of the promotional videos for the game, Majin Buu uses the attack to turn a whole bunch of people into candy before being stopped by Future Trunks.

In Dragon Ball: Zenkai Battle Royale, the technique allows Majin Buu to regain strength by punching the opponent turned into chocolate (if other characters hit the chocolate, it also recovers Buu's health). Majin Buu can also use the technique in Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Z, where the target is turned into a piece of chocolate and cannot move, attack, or block for a small period of time. A varitant named Mend Beam can be used on allies to heal them in Battle of Z.

Mighty Majins also can use this technique, named Candy Beam Flash, in Dragon Ball Online.

"Fire a beam that turns the area into candy!"
Dragon Ball Xenoverse Skill description

The Chocolate Beam appears in Dragon Ball Xenoverse as a Majin-exclusive skill named Candy Beam. It serves as an Evasive Skill that allows the Majin to use the Candy Beam in a wide arc which turns any enemy hit by it into a coffee-flavored jawbreaker. The transfigured enemy can still move around and flee from their opponent while turned into candy, but they can neither attack nor be attacked. Majin Buu also has an Ultimate Attack version based on the how it was used to kill Dabura called Cookie Beam which turns the opponent into a cookie which Majin Buu will then eat, though the will turn back to normal after being consumed.[2]

There is also Z-Soul called "Okay! Turn into candy!" that has a low change of activating when taking damage. When activated it turns the opponent into Candy like the Candy Beam, though unlike the Evasive Skill, this Z-Soul can be equipped by all races.[2]

Demon God Demigra also uses the Candy Beam technique to turn Tokitoki into a piece of candy in order to consume him to absorb Tokitoki's power (as Tokitoki is a divine bird that creates time itself).[2]

In Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2, the Candy Beam and Cooke Beam return, though the Cookie Beam remains exclusive to Majin Buu while the Candy Beam can be obtained and used by the Future Warrior. Both skills functions the same way they did in Xenoverse.[3]

Humorously, during the main story Super Buu will comment on what food he plans to turn the 2nd Future Warrior into when they appear to assist Gotenks and Piccolo. If they are a member of Frieza's Race, Super Buu will say "You look kind of cold, so turning you into ice cream would be fitting." (a reference to members of the Frieza Race names being puns based on terms relating to cold).

"Fires a beam that turns your opponent into a delicious piece of candy."
Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 Skill description

As part of the Extra Pack 1 DLC, Super Buu (Gohan Absorbed) has a Super Skill variation of Candy Beam under the same name, which he fires directly forward from his head tentacle. This variation can also be obtained by the Future Warrior (Xenoverse 2) as a reward in Parallel Quest 113: "Birth of the Ultimate Majin!". Unlike the Evasive Skill version the Candy Beam Super Skill can be used by any race.[4]

In Dragon Ball FighterZ, Majin Buu can use the Cookie Beam as his Level 3 Supers. Kid Buu can also use this technique. In the story mode, Kid Buu Clones can also use the technique. Android 21 and Android 21 (Evil) also has the ability to turn opponents into food in this game, under the name Hungry Beam and Sweet Tooth. While Android 21 (Good) is capable of using the technique as well she refuses to use it to prevent her from losing control of her hunger as well as for moral reasons, thus it does not appear in her moveset. It is implied that Android 21 and her fissions can use the technique due to possessing the cells of Majin Buu (it is not specified as to which incarnation). By turning living beings into food she can increase her power, though the taste of the food is effected by the being in question. Clones tend to taste poorly due to their artificial nature and the growth process 21 used to grow them rapidly in order to mass produce countless clones. Non-clones tend to taste better though the more powerful they are the better they taste thus strong fighters like Cell and Frieza tend to taste the best and Android 21 herself wonders if someone as powerful as Goku would actually be able to satisfy her hunger. Unfortunately, due to the unruly nature of her Majin cells (which is also shown by the wild behavior of the Kid Buu Clones) 21 develops an insatiable hunger that causes her to develop an evil split personality. The game's story revolves around Android 21 and Android 16's attempts to suppress 21's hunger and dealing with the clones created by the evil Android 21, though the first two arcs 21 succumbs completely to her evil impulses causing her to destroy 16 and carry out her plan to consume the Z Fighters and the villains she revived using the Namekian Dragon Balls, which ultimately leads to her defeat and destruction in both arcs. However in the final arc she and 16 manage to partially succeed with the help of the soul that had linked with Android 18, though when she attempts to protect her fellow Androids from Cell, her hunger goes out of control and she destroys 16 when he tries to stop her, though he shock of his death causes her to split into her good and evil halves. Her evil half consumes Cell and transforms into a stronger version of her true form. The good 21 resolves not to consume others and suppress her hunger with the aid of the linked soul to honor 16's memory, she joining forces with 17, 18, and the Z Fighters to stop her evil self. However fearing she will one day lose control and endanger the lives of her newfound friends, she choose to sacrifice herself by holding down her evil half allowing both of them to be destroyed by Goku's Spirit Bomb.
