"He he hi hi hi hee. Me Buu, kill you!"
— While battling against Super Saiyan 3 Goku in "Minute of Desperation"

Kid Buu (魔人ブウ 純粋, Majin Bū Junsui; lit. "Majin Boo Pure"), also known as Majin Buu (魔人ブウ, Majin Bū), is the original and purest form of the Majin called Buu. The first form of Buu that appeared in Dragon Ball Z was actually the form that he took after he had absorbed Southern Supreme Kai and Grand Supreme Kai millions of years earlier, and Kid Buu appeared again only after all of the fighters he had absorbed were removed from his system.

Kid Buu is the final villain of the Dragon Ball manga. Unlike his other forms, this form of Buu's thought process is seen to be irrational and spontaneous, even destroying his own body to destroy the Earth. Although he appears smaller than any other form, he is more dangerous than any other forms of Buu due to his full relentless evil and unpredictability. He is also completely free of restraint and has no trace of sanity and, because of this, is extremely volatile. He retains his childish personality, becoming amused and laughing hysterically at his own destruction of entire worlds.




Kid Buu

Kid Buu is identical in terms of appearance to that of Super Buu, with the exception of that he is childlike in terms of stature and his antenna also becomes quite short. In the manga, Kid Buu does not have any fingers besides the small index finger, but in the anime and video-games, he has the regular four fingers and a thumb. Just like the other Buus, he wears baggy white pants, with a black belt showing the Majin symbol. Like Super Buu, he wears black arm covers.


Kid Buu's personality is very similar to that of a very young spoiled, selfish child, in that he retains no form of compassion or remorse for any of his actions. Furthermore, due to his selfish and capricious personality and mind-set, he is incapable of developing empathy and comprehending the nature of his actions. Kid Buu is also, like a child, very unpredictable in his behavior and actions, sometimes randomly falling asleep during battle, or acting like a monkey by banging his chest with his fists.

Buu's only reason for existence was to cause absolute destruction. He enjoyed the destruction he brought to the universe, reveling in the devastation he wreaks. He appears to enjoy testing the limits of his own power as well, seeking out Vegeta and Goku just to see how far they could push him. He is also utterly merciless, annihilating entire planets simply because Vegeta and Goku were not there. On the rare occasion he ever showed any restraint of his power, it was to make his "game" of destruction last longer instead of producing an instant kill. He is not a sadistic killer seeking to bring pain to his victims, as he seemingly does not care, or even know about pain, nor does he seek to conquer and rule over anything. He merely seeks to have fun the only way he knows how; creating havoc and destruction in the whole universe, similar to the fat version of Buu before Mr. Satan told him to stop killing.

Though he is highly irrational and insane, Kid Buu does seem to have some reasoning abilities and intelligence, as he quickly realized that Goku refused to hit him with the Spirit Bomb as long as Vegeta was in the way and took advantage of it by pinning the latter to the ground.

From all the forms of Buu, Kid Buu appears to be the least capable of speech. In the manga, his only phrase is "You've had it!" during the battle against Goku and Vegeta, his other words being mostly gibberish. In the FUNimation dub of the anime, Kid Buu's speech capacity is somewhat increased, as he says things such as "Buu squash you like bugs!", "Dum Dums!", "Me Buu, kill you!" and "Me Buu, not you!"


Creation and Resurrection


Bibidi and Majin Buu

Though Supreme Kai says that Bibidi made him, the truth is that the one called "Buu" was not actually created by Bibidi, but has existed since time immemorial. He cycled between rampages and long hibernation. During numerous iterations of this cycle, he absorbed the evil elements of mankind, becoming steadily more violent. The evil wizard Bibidi merely knew the means of calling Buu from out of his long slumber.[7] Roughly five million years before the actual story of Dragon Ball takes place, Majin Buu was summoned once again by Bibidi. This monster was a virtually invincible force of destruction, and, because of his absolutely wild and ruthless nature, he could not be controlled, even by Bibidi himself. An example of this is when Kid Buu blew up Planet Alpha and its inhabitants, and almost hit Bibidi in the process, causing Bibidi to tell Kid Buu off and only meekly telling him he is his "father" when Kid Buu intimidated him by glaring at him. According to the FUNimation dubKing Kai and West Kai met Kid Buu at one point when Kid Buu was wreaking havoc over the universe, and West Kai fought him.[10] Eventually, Buu and Bibidi made their way to the Sacred World of the Kais, where the rulers of the universe and Bibidi's sworn enemies, the Supreme Kais, lived peacefully. Majin Buu proceeded to kill both the Western Supreme Kai and the Northern Supreme Kai before encountering the Southern Supreme Kai, the strongest of the Kais. Although the Kai managed to fight evenly with Buu and land a few hits on the monster, Buu managed to absorb Southern Supreme Kai during their fight, which transformed him into a bulkier version of himself.


Majin Buu after he absorbed the Southern Supreme Kai

Majin Buu then made an attempt to end the Eastern Supreme Kai's life, but he was saved by the Grand Supreme Kai. After a brief struggle, Buu absorbed Grand Supreme Kai, which resulted in the childlike fat Majin Buu being created, who was much less evil and wild than the original Buu, due to the innocence of the Grand Supreme Kai's soul. As Buu became calmer and easier to control,[11] seeing his opportunity, Bibidi finally managed to seal Majin Buu inside of a Sealed Ball without much resistance from the latter. Bibidi was then killed by the Eastern Supreme Kai a short time later, which meant the madness of Majin Buu was believed to have ended for good. However, the fat Majin Buu was again resurrected 5 million years later on Earth by Bibidi's doppleganger, Babidi. After a long chain of events (which includes the fat Majin Buu murdering Babidi, the fight between Good Buu and Evil Buu, the birth of Super Buu, and everyone that Super Buu had absorbed (Gotenks, Piccolo, Gohan, and the fat Buu) being removed by Goku and Vegeta (when they were voluntarily absorbed when they were Vegito), the original pure evil form of Majin Buu finally resurfaced.

The True Majin Buu

Main article: Kid Buu Saga


Kid Buu as he prepares to blow up the Earth

After he comes to his senses, transforming from Super Buu after Vegeta removed the good Majin Buu from Super Buu's head, Kid Buu attempts to destroy the Earth with a small yet incredibly powerful energy ball, but it is deflected by Vegeta's Final Burst Cannon. Kid Buu then creates a massive energy ball and flings it toward the Earth. Goku and Vegeta realize that they would be unable to stop it and make an attempt to escape with Gohan, Goten, Trunks, and Piccolo. However, the only three that they were able to grab nearby were Mr. Satan, his dog Bee, and Dende. Kibito Kai appears, grabs onto Goku and Vegeta, and teleports them away with Instantaneous Movement while Gohan, Goten, Trunks, Piccolo, Tien Shinhan, and Chiaotzu are left on Earth, when it is completely obliterated.

Regenerating after the explosion, Kid Buu goes off in search of Goku and Vegeta, teleporting to many planets as he goes and destroying them upon sensing the Saiyans' absence. Along the way, in an anime only filler scene, he finds the Grand Kai's planet, where Pikkon and Olibu approach him and start taunting him, leading a number of dead warriors risking their existence, against him including Krillin and Yamcha. After a victorious scuffle with Krillin, before he can finish him and the other dead warriors, Kid Buu manages to sense the increasing combat powers of Goku and Vegeta, and teleports off to the Sacred World of the Kais seeking strong opponents. Upon arriving, Kid Buu battles with Super Saiyan 2 Goku and Goku has the upper hand, although Kid Buu is not fighting at his maximum. Once he powers up, Goku transforms into Super Saiyan 3 (in the manga, he does this right away instead of fighting in the Super Saiyan 2 form in the anime) and fights evenly with him.


Kid Buu prepares an energy blast

"Me Buu, not you!"
— Kid Buu, about to blast Good Buu

Kid Buu, having the advantage of perpetual endurance,[12] wins over the battered Goku, who is quickly losing power from his draining Super Saiyan 3 transformation. Vegeta transforms into his Super Saiyan 2 form to fight Kid Buu in an attempt to buy some time so Goku can charge to full power to finish Buu, but is quickly defeated as well despite fighting well and lasting longer than expected. Mr. Satan then steps in and attempts to fight Buu, but is severely outmatched and relies on mere luck to survive. Kid Buu moves in for the kill, but finds himself unable to do so due to having the memories of Good Buu. His frustration ultimately leads him to spit out a small stone which explodes into an unconscious Good Buu. Now with nothing to stop him, Kid Buu resumes the play-fight with the enraged Mr. Satan, who attempts another pitiful attack when Good Buu steps in. Good Buu angrily tells Kid Buu to leave Mr. Satan alone and that his battle is with him. Kid Buu and Good Buu then engage one another in combat. The battle quickly turns in Kid Buu's favor, and he ultimately dominates Good Buu, who however, refuses to give up the fight.


Kid Buu on the attack

Meanwhile, Goku and Vegeta hatch a plan to have Dende and Kibito Kai use Porunga to restore the Earth and revive all the good people who were killed since the World Martial Arts Tournament. Goku then prepares to create a Super Spirit Bomb, while Vegeta uses King Kai's telepathy to ask for the Earthlings' help, to which only their friends and family respond.

Goku vs buu

Goku fighting Kid Buu

Kid Buu and Good Buu continue their battle, until Good Buu is beaten so badly that he cannot fight any longer. Mr. Satan then steps in to stop Kid Buu, and Vegeta once again battles Kid Buu to buy some more time. Ultimately, Mr. Satan manages to convince the people of Earth to give up their energy and the Super Spirit Bomb reaches completion, frightening Kid Buu. Unfortunately, Kid Buu holds the battered Vegeta 'hostage', keeping him in the Spirit Bomb's path as well, therefore stopping Goku from throwing the attack. However, Good Buu wakes up and smashes himself headfirst into Kid Buu, knocking him off Vegeta for Mr. Satan to carry off to safety. Unable to get Good Buu off of him, Kid Buu angrily blasts him away with a massive energy sphere.

Now with an obstacle-free path, Goku takes his chance and throws the Spirit Bomb straight at Kid Buu, but Kid Buu is able to stop it and slowly pushes it back towards the exhausted Goku. Dende then uses the third wish with the Namekian Dragon to have all of Goku's strength be restored. Goku then turns Super Saiyan and overpowers Kid Buu with the Spirit Bomb, causing Majin Buu to be obliterated and thus vanquished forever.

Shortly before Kid Buu's destruction, Goku openly hopes that one day Kid Buu will return as a good person so that they may have a rematch. In the Other World, King Yemma hears Goku's request and makes it come true by having Kid Buu reincarnated as a Human named Uub. In order to settle things for good with Good Buu, Goku wishes to erase all the Earthlings' memories of Majin Buu. Mr. Satan also gives Good Buu strict orders to refrain from getting angry, no matter what.

Legacy and Uub


The end of Kid Buu

According to the games Dragon Ball Z: Shin Budokai and Dragon Ball Z: Scouter Battle Taikan Kamehameha, though his cleansed soul was reincarnated as Uub, the evil soul of Kid Buu remained in Hell. Additionally, when a Majin takes their Pure Majin form in Dragon Ball Online they become identical to Kid Buu in both appearance, powers, and mannerisms (though they are far more subdued).

Whilst Goku is training on his radish farm, he closes his eyes and pictures that he is fighting Frieza, Cell, and Buu. As Super Saiyan Goku prepares to attack Kid Buu, he is snapped out of his mental training.

The Return of Uub - Kid Buu

Kid Buu in Good Buu's retelling

Ten years after Buu's defeat, Goku and his friends enter the 28th World Martial Arts Tournament. There is also a young competitor named Uub, who is unknowingly Kid Buu reincarnated as a better person. Uub fights Goku in the first round, and Goku remarks that Uub is very strong but does not know how to control his powers (only being able to draw it out when angered). Goku decides to make Uub his student and eventual successor, so he stays in Uub's village for some years. Several years afterward, in Dragon Ball GT, Uub fuses with Good Buu and becomes Majuub in order to gain more power to battle villains such as Baby, Super 17 and Omega Shenron. Just before Uub and Good Buu merge into Majuub, Kid Buu (with white eyes instead of red) appears in Good Buu's explanation to Uub of the history of Buu.

Video game stories

Dragon Ball Z: Shin Budokai

Main article: Dragon Ball Z: Shin Budokai While they are travelling through Hell in order to find and defeat Janemba, the heroes Vegeta, Pikkon, and Supreme Kai encounter Kid Buu, whose evil part seemingly remained in Hell while his cleaned soul became Uub. Vegeta decides to hold off Buu for as long as possible so that the others can keep going, but Buu did not let them leave, forcing Pikkon to fight him. After defeating Pikkon, Buu notices that Super Janemba has arrived. Janemba wishes to absorb Buu, so Buu decides to fight Janemba and their fight is so ferocious that Hell itself starts to crumble. Soon, Super Janemba starts to gain the upper hand.

In order to stop the fight, Goku and Vegeta fuse into Gogeta and attack Janemba, but Buu stops them, not wanting anyone to interfere. Janemba creates a fake Vegito to fight Gogeta. After Gogeta defeats Vegito, Super Janemba absorbs both the fake Vegito and Buu in order to drastically increase his power. Despite this, he is defeated and things are restored to normal, leaving Super Janemba defeated and Buu stuck in Hell with the other villains.[13]

Other appearances

Dr. Slump remake


Kid Buu's manga version in the Dr. Slump remake

In the 1997 remake of Dr. Slump, Kid Buu appears from Senbei Norimaki's Reality Machine fighting Goku due to Arale Norimaki putting the last volume of the Dragon Ball manga, "Goodbye, Dragon World", into it. His appearance is white and black due to him being created from the manga.

Dragon Ball SD

Kid Buu appears in chapter 4 of Dragon Ball SD. Majin Buu turns into Kid Buu after becoming friends with Mr. Satan. Unlike the original manga/anime, Majin Buu skips Super Buu and goes straight into Kid Buu. Like in the original manga/anime, Kid Buu is killed by a Spirit Bomb.


Manga and Anime

Kid Buu charging a Ki Blast

Buu's power changes depending on his absorptions. According to Goku and Vegeta, his power spikes up when he changes from Super Buu to the huge Buu but goes back down when he reverts to Kid Buu; though Goku and Vegeta underestimate him due to his size. Later, Kibito Kai comments that, while on Earth in this state, Kid Buu is more dangerous than ever. Kid Buu is the most dangerous out of all the other forms of Buu, not because of his raw power, but due to his effectiveness in combat via his wild fighting style and uncontrollable nature. While Majin Buu and Super Buu made time for small talk during combat, Kid Buu relents his assault only to taunt his opponents when they are down. His power and dangerousness is witnessed when he destroys entire planets for no reason and without showing any signs of remorse.

As seen in his fight, Kid Buu's power is comparable to that of Super Saiyan 3 Goku. Though Goku claims that he can beat Kid Buu when fighting in his Super Saiyan 3 form at 100% power, he could not maintain his full power due to the form's ki consumption and thus is unable to take down Kid Buu using the form, and in the anime he even states that his attacks have stopped having effects on Kid Buu towards the end of their battle and that Kid Buu is stronger than he could have ever imagined. In the anime, when Cell witnesses Goku and Kid Buu's battle from Hell, he concludes that Buu is giving Goku a far harder fight than Cell himself had.

In the English dub only, Goku states that as Kid Buu, Buu is "twice as strong in speed and power" than he was previously.

Video games

In the story of Dragon Ball: Xenoverse, when Demigra turns Kid Buu into Dark Kid Buu he greatly powers him up, making him capable of fighting on par with Ultimate Gohan.

Kid Buu's power level is 1,150,000,000 according to the video game Dragon Ball Z: Scouter Battle Taikan Kamehameha (it is 1,379,943,848 in a special mission exclusive to the game).

Techniques and special abilities

  • Flight – The ability to fly with the use of ki.

Kid Buu fires a Ki Blast

  • Ki Blast – The most basic form of energy wave. This was the first attack Kid Buu used in the series. Although a basic attack, when used by Kid Buu it still had enough power to destroy a planet the size of the Earth.

Kid Buu absorbs the Southern Supreme Kai

  • Absorption – Majin Buu fully engulfs and takes an opponent into his body to cause an increase in physical and mental prowess. Majin Buu usually has a severed body part liquefy, or he has a piece of skin fall off of his body. The goo will then sneak up behind the person, and stretch itself to be large enough to accommodate the target. The goo will then leap onto the person. The goo will try to smother as much of the target as it can on the first strike to make the capture easier. If Majin Buu is lucky, the goo will completely cover the target on the first leap. Once the goo is on the person, it will quickly cover up any part of the person that was not covered during when it first leaped. Once the target is completely covered, the goo will squeeze and solidify, trapping the person. It is seemingly impossible to escape the goo, no matter what the circumstances (such as Piccolo, who the goo took a long time to cover due to his armor). Majin Buu will then raise his finger up, and the goo will then launch up into the air with the person inside of it. The goo will then fly straight into Majin Buu and cover him. During the transformation, Majin Buu will become liquid himself, meaning that he is basically taking over the goo and has surrounded the person with his own liquefied body. He then begins to meld back into a solid form, making sure the person is in the center of the goo. The person is shrunken and is put inside Majin Buu's body in a pod. Kid Buu absorbed the Southern Supreme and Grand Supreme Kai many years ago and was transformed into the fat Majin Buu as a result.

Kid Buu in his pre-regeneration state

  • Body Manipulation – Majin Buu has full control over every aspect of his physical make-up, able to stretch, shape-shift, liquify, and otherwise manipulate his malleable body; useful as both an attack and defense and as a tool in absorption. Kid Buu can make his body similar to a parachute to slow his decent, and uses a technique similar to Krillin's Balloon Technique to fly over his opponents. Kid Buu is also able to enlarge his fists to become far larger than his opponent in size, as seen when used against Vegeta.

Kid Buu enlarges his fist to attack Vegeta

  • Regeneration – He can regenerate his body at a sub-molecular level, allowing him to survive virtually anything; however, he was unable to regenerate from Goku's Super Spirit Bomb since it destroyed every atom of Buu. His unrivaled regeneration plus his endless resilience and stamina granted him near-immortality; he is shown to be able to survive the blast of a planet exploding (demonstrated when he uses his Planet Burst to destroy the Earth and other planets while still on them). However, it is shown during the fight between Vegito and Super Buu that even the regeneration has its limits; after repeatedly being blow to bits and pounded into oblivion, Buu had to exert more and more effort to restore himself, at one point failing completely for a moment and leaving a gaping hole in his stomach. Kid Buu's regeneration is used to illustrate the Super Regeneration on a card in Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Z.

Kid Buu chokes Vegeta, using the Mystic Attack

  • Mystic Attack – The ability to extend his arms or legs. Kid Buu uses this to attack Vegeta, enlarging his fist and then Vegeta to choking him. He also uses the Mystic Attack in video games, and is notably shown using it to grab Gotenks by the neck in the opening of Dragon Ball Z: Budokai 3.
  • Mystic Shoot - Kid Buu's signature attack in the Raging Blast series.
    • Electric Shock – Kid Buu creates electricity on his body and then channels it through his arms to shock his opponent. Used in combination with the Mystic Attack to torture Vegeta.
  • Mystic Ball Attack – Buu curls himself up into a ball with his legs above his back and his feet below his chin and flies around using himself as a weapon to crash into enemies. Kid Buu used this technique against Super Saiyan 3 Goku only in the anime, and in video games.
  • Mystic Combination – A rush attack he used against Super Saiyan 3 Goku. Named in the Budokai Tenkaichi video game series.

Kid Buu prepares a finger beam

  • Finger Beam – Kid Buu is seen using Finger Beams to kill Alpha-seijins during a flashback, as well as to destroy planets in the episode "True Saiyans Fight Alone".
  • Vanishing Beam – A technique used many times by Majin Buu and is his signature technique. It is usually an average-sized, pink or purple beam fired from the palm. It also has enough power to destroy a planet the size of Earth.

Huge Buu's Gack!

  • Gack! – Kid Buu fires a powerful energy blast from his mouth. He first used it in his Huge Buu form against the Eastern Supreme Kai, who was saved from it by the Grand Supreme Kai. He later used it in his original form against Goku and Vegeta.
  • Instant Learning – This ability does not actually have a name. It allows Buu to instantly and perfectly perform any skill or ability he saw. This explains how he knew Instantaneous Movement because he saw Kibito Kai perform it. This ability is shared by all versions of Buu. The limit of this ability is unknown, but he has learned such abilities like the Kamehameha, Instantaneous Movement and a skill used by Vegeta (learned by Good Buu). Even in death, this ability is retained by Kid Buu's reincarnate Uub, as Vegeta stated that Uub was learning to fight Goku as he was fighting.

Kid Buu uses a Vanishing Beam on planet Alpha

  • Chocolate Beam – A technique which turns whoever is hit into inanimate objects such as candy. Kid Buu attempts to use the attack on Super Saiyan 3 Goku, though Goku just manages to dodge out of the way of the attack.
  • Kamehameha – A technique copied when Goku used it. Kid Buu uses the attack on Goku during their battle on the sacred planet of the Kais.
    • Super Kamehameha – The upgraded version of Kamehameha. Unlike his regular Kamehameha it is blue in color.
    • Warp Kamehameha – A combo attack where Kid Buu launches a Planet Burst at his opponent, and then fires a Super Kamehameha at them. Used in the Budokai video game series.
  • Mad Kill Spike – Buu fires many ki waves at at the opponent. Kid Buu has his own unique version during which he splits into hundreds of Kid Buus that fire Continuous Energy Bullet, creating a monsoon of energy waves. Named in the Budokai series, where Kid Buu uses Continuous Energy Bullets without splitting.
  • Nightmare Impact – Nightmare Impact is a rush attack Kid Buu used against Super Saiyan 2 Vegeta on the Supreme Kai's planet. Named in the Raging Blast games.

Kid Buu uses the Buu Rocket attack

  • Buu Rocket – An attack used by Kid Buu against Good Buu in which he surrounds himself in energy and rushes forward like a rocket. This attack vaporized Good Buu's neck and up, but he regenerated.

Kid Buu uses the Shocking Ball

  • Planet Burst – A massive energy sphere created by Kid Buu by collecting energy in his right palm, more than enough to destroy a planet the size of Earth, and implied by Goku to have enough power to destroy a planet ten times over in a single shot. It was used to not only destroy Earth, but many other planets, as Kid Buu sought out the place where Goku and Vegeta were hiding. This technique is called Vanishing Ball in the Budokai series, and was named Planet Burst in the Budokai Tenkaichi series. In the Budokai series, Kid Buu uses a version called Warp Kamehameha where he fires a Kamehameha push the ball to the opponent. It is also called Death Ball, only in the first Dragon Ball Z: Budokai Tenkaichi.
    • Shocking Ball – Kid Buu uses a smaller version of the Planet Burst on Grand Kai's planet against Pikkon, Olibu, Krillin, Yamcha, and many other fighters. Named in the Raging Blast games, where it appears as on of Kid Buu's Super Attacks.
  • Baked Sphere – A dark explosive wave utilized by Villainous Mode Kid Buu.
  • Mighty Powerful God Shockwave – The user charges blue energy in his left hand, and then rushes and fires it towards the opponent. Used by Buu (w/ Southern Supreme Kai absorbed) in Dragon Ball Heroes.
  • Shin Gekiretsu Shin'ou'hou – An immensely powerful and huge beam of energy at the enemy, which is originally Kibito Kai's ultimate attack. Used by Buu (w/ Kibito Kai absorbed) in Dragon Ball Heroes.
  • Biribiri Sorcery – A spell where the wizard summons a slimy substance capable of exploding a target. Used by Buu (w/ Babidi absorbed) in Dragon Ball Heroes.

Kid Buu's Assault Rain

  • Assault Rain – A technique originally used by Super Buu. Kid Buu was first shown using this attack in the opening movies for Dragon Ball GT: Final Bout and the first Dragon Ball Z: Budokai Tenkaichi. He also uses it in the video games Final Bout, Dragon Ball Z: Shin Budokai, Dragon Ball Z: Shin Budokai - Another Road, and Dragon Ball Z: Infinite World.
    • Double Blast – A barrage of ki blasts used to torture Goku when he was unable to throw the Spirit Bomb since Kid Buu was holding Vegeta hostage. Named in the Dragon Ball Z Collectible Card Game.
  • Crazy Smash – Kid Buu kicks the opponent up in the air, then he kicks and punches them down again, and finally Kid Buu kicks his opponent in the back when he is down. Used in the Budokai series.
  • Massacre of the Billions and Millions of Bountiful Mini Bitty Malliciously Baneful Majin Buus – Kid Buu splits into many Kid Buus and they all fire energy waves. Used against Goku, and later Vegeta. Named in the Dragon Ball Z Collectible Card Game.

Buu orb technique 4 (BT)

Kid Buu's black orb

  • Sleep – Despite having seemingly endless stamina, Kid Buu does need to rest from time to time. Evidence of that was shown when he fell asleep while Goku and Vegeta played Rock-Paper-Scissors to see who would fight him first. This is probably due to his galactic destruction spree before he managed to track down his targets. Another scene of him taking a break is while he was beating on Good Buu. He stopped, sat down, and exhaled an exhausted sigh before he continued his beating. It is one of his Blast 1 in the Budokai Tenkaichi series.
  • Unnamed Black Orb technique – An unnamed technique which Kid Buu uses in the opening of Budokai Tenkaichi, Kid Buu raises his arm into the air, shooting multiple beams which hit Cell, the Cell Jrs., Piccolo, Ultimate Gohan, and Frieza, and then Kid Buu create a massive black orb and charges at the opponent. Goku defeats him with a Kamehameha, breaking through the orb.


Pure Buu

Main article: Pure Majin


Kid Buu when slaughtering the Alpha-seijins

The original form of Majin Buu, without any absorption. Usually called Kid Buu in Dragon Ball video games.

Southern Supreme Kai absorbed


Buu with Southern Supreme Kai absorbed

A form seen briefly in a few panels of the manga and an anime flashback, and which is described by Old Kai as a Huge Majin Buu (でかい魔人ブウ).[1] The original Kid Buu absorbs Southern Supreme Kai, creating a taller and incredibly muscular version of the creature. In addition, Buu's antenna also grows significantly larger. In this form his voice also changes from the previously high-pitched voice Kid Buu had, though he still does not talk much (apart from yells and grunts similar to Kid Buu). After a second absorption of the plump and good natured Grand Supreme Kai, Buu gains the deceptively harmless and childlike form first seen in the series. It is hinted that Huge Buu is a lot stronger than Super Buu, as when he was transforming into this form, Goku notes that his ki was increasing and, in the anime, expressed concern when Huge Buu seemed to grow a lot stronger until his size decreased upon finally transforming into Kid Buu.

Super Buu's biography in the first Dragon Ball Z: Budokai Tenkaichi identifies the form the original Majin Buu took after absorbing the Southern Supreme Kai as the Super Buu form, though after everyone is freed from inside him Super Buu does take a similar appearance just before he fully transforms into Kid Buu. When Kid Buu charges energy or uses specific combos in Dragon Ball GT: Final Bout, he buffs up into a form similar to the form he took when absorbed the Southern Supreme Kai. The form is playable in the arcade game Dragon Ball Heroes.

As no proper official name is given for this short-lived form of Buu, it has been coined as Ultra Buu, Mega Buu, Buff Buu, Huge Buu, and sometimes Super Kid Buu by fans.

Majin Buu showing the Grand Supreme Kai spirit to Babidi

Innocent Buu (無邪気な魔人ブウ)[3] is the form Kid Buu takes after absorbing the Grand Supreme Kai, which results in the childlike fat Majin Buu much less evil than the original Buu due to the innocence of the Grand Supreme Kai's soul. In this form, Buu becomes calmer and easier to control.[11] This is the form Bibidi sealed Majin Buu inside of a cocoon, and the form in which Buu is resurrected by Babidi after many chains of events. He loves to eat and has childlike innocence, but becomes unstoppable when angry.[11] Since the current Buu is a slightly different life-form due to the changes brought about when the evil Buu was expelled, it is not known whether he will still go into long hibernation.[7]

This absorption gives Buu increased magical abilities, including the ability to use Biribiri Sorcery.

Main article: Uub Uub is the good reincarnated version of Kid Buu.[14] Right when Goku defeated Kid Buu with the Super Spirit Bomb, he told Kid Buu that he hoped that he would come back someday as a better person, so that they could fight again. King Yemma overheard Goku's desire and had Kid Buu reincarnated into a Human form named Uub. Goku fights him at the World Martial Arts Tournament ten years later. Goku then takes him away to train with him so that Goku would have an apprentice who could protect the Earth.

What-if scenarios

Shin Budokai (alternate ending)

Shin Budokai
  • Kid Buu vs. Pikkon
  • Kid Buu vs. Super Janemba
  • Kid Buu vs. Vegito (Base/Super Saiyan; Potara Fusion ending)


  • In the manga, Kid Buu does not have any fingers besides the small index finger, but, in the anime and video-games, he has the regular four fingers and a thumb.
  • Buu's clothes appear to be a part of him as well, as whenever a part of his clothing is cut, torn, or destroyed, they are regenerated along with the rest of his body.
  • Kid Buu is the only one of the three major villains (Frieza, Cell, and Majin Buu) not to be killed by a new Super Saiyan form while in their final form, though Goku says he could have beaten Kid Buu at 100% as a Super Saiyan 3.
  • Kid Buu is also the only one of the three major villains to be killed by Goku in the manga and anime. (Future Trunks killed Frieza and Gohan killed Cell, with Goku later killing Frieza in Dragon Ball Z: Resurrection ‘F’).
  • In Super Janemba's ending in Dragon Ball Z: Shin Budokai's arcade mode, Super Janemba and Kid Buu are shown to be able to understand each other's words, and they even become friends.
  • In Shin Budokai - Another Road, as a joke, the World Tournament Announcer understands all of the sounds Kid Buu makes as words, which surprises and confuses Vegeta and Goku.
