- This article is about people under control of Babidi's magic. For the race of magic-created demons, see Majin.
When Babidi takes control of someone, a large "M" often appears on their forehead, this is the "Demon mark" (the kanji for Demon being 魔; Ma).
Manga and anime Majin
Babidi has many foot soldiers called Majin Soldiers under his control, with their uniforms resembling Pui Pui's. They really posed no threat to any of the Dragon Team. Two of them were eaten by Yakon in the anime, and most of the others were killed by Gohan during his assault with Supreme Kai on Babidi's spaceship. Since these men were ordered to fight and were located on the level above Babidi's lair and below level three where Dabura and Gohan fought, it can be said they would have been the 4th and final stage fighters before reaching the Sealed Ball, if Gohan had defeated Dabura the first time around.
Those Majin Soldiers appear as common enemies in Babidi's spaceship in the video game Dragon Ball Z: Buu's Fury. Their specialized variants include Elite Majin Soldiers, Super Majin Soldiers, Majin Shield Soldiers, and Super Shield Soldiers.
- Techniques and special abilities
- Evil Beam - A two-handed Energy Wave used by most Majin Soldiers. It appears in Dragon Ball Z: Dokkan Battle.
Majin Fighters are martial artists who have been converted over to Babidi's side, they can be empowered into Elite Majin Fighter or Super Majin Fighter.
Main article: Yamu
Yamu is paired up with Spopovich and sent to the World Tournament to gather energy for Babidi, the evil wizard. The energy they are sent to gather is needed to awaken Majin Buu. When Yamu and Spopovich complete their task, Babidi kills Spopovich and when Yamu sees this, he tries to escape but is killed when Pui Pui destroys him with his Nice Shot.
Main article: Spopovich
Once a normal earthling he fought against Mr. Satan and lost in the first round of the previous World Martial Arts Tournament. Babidi took control of his mind along with Yamu in the Buu Saga. Spopovich was then turned into a complete psychopath. He was then sent by Babidi to collect energy at the 25th World Martial Arts Tournament. He fights Videl in the first round and beats her to the brink of death before Yamu tells him to end the fight. Spopovich then ends the fight by kicking Videl out of the ring. Yamu and Spopovich team up on Gohan, when he goes Super Saiyan 2, and using a special device, they rob him of his energy. After completely draining him, they return to their master Babidi to deliver the energy to him. Babidi soon decides they have outlived their usefulness and, through his dark magic, causes Spopovich to explode. For unknown reasons, Spopovich lost all his hair when becoming a Majin, and his blood also turned purple.
Main article: Pui Pui
Pui Pui is a minion of Babidi, the guardian of level one in Babidi's spaceship which housed Majin Buu's Sealed Ball. His home planet, Zoon, has a gravity of 10 G's, which he believes is an advantage against other fighters. However, Vegeta fights and quickly kills him because he had previously trained under 500 G's. Pui Pui later makes a cameo appearance in the Super 17 Saga of Dragon Ball GT. In the English manga, he is referred to as Pocus.
Main article: Yakon
Yakon is one of Babidi's minions, he is referred to as a Maju (Demon Beast). He is from a distant corner of the universe which has no light. He fights Goku on the second level of Babidi's spaceship. He can also feed on the light from attacks like the Kamehameha and the Super Saiyan aura. Goku was able to overcome this and beat Yakon by continuing to power up as Super Saiyan and giving Yakon more energy than he could handle, causing Yakon to explode.
The King of Demons, Dabura is controlled by Babidi and serves as his right-hand man and most powerful minion. He is turned into a large cookie and is eaten by Majin Buu after he realizes that the creature is uncontrollable and attempts to destroy it.
In the anime, Dabura ends up in heaven and since he is no longer a servant to Babidi, he reforms his ways. He appears as a ghost-like entity with a cuddly disposition.
Main article: Vegeta
After watching Goku's fight with Yakon and realizing that Goku had reached a new level of power beyond that of his own, Vegeta silently made a decision to allow Babidi to turn him into a Majin. After noticing that Spopovich and Yamu had received a power boost after being controlled by Babidi, Vegeta figured the process could be replicated with himself so that he could gain the power he needed to finally surpass Goku in strength. It should be noted however that he was the only one of Babidi's slaves who wasn't under his complete control. Even after having gained the Demon mark himself, Vegeta's pride did not allow him to be controlled by Babidi as the other victims of Babidi's magic were, even disobeying Babidi's command to kill the Supreme Kai in favor of fighting Goku to prove that he was stronger. We see the last of Vegeta under Babidi's spell when he decided to blow himself up to kill Buu and save the world (which proved to be unsuccessful). When Vegeta is sent back to Earth by King Yemma to fight Majin Buu again (then known as Super Buu), he is seen reverted to his normal state.
Video game Majin
Frieza and Cell
Frieza and Cell were revived and turned into Majins in Dragon Ball Z: Budokai 2 by Babidi in order to prevent the Z Fighters from getting to Buu's Cocoon. When Buu hatched out of his cocoon, Frieza and Cell were defeated and sent back to Hell, thus returned to their normal state. In this form, the two villains gain tremendous power. Frieza and Cell, like every other Majin, have an "M" on their forehead which stands for the race they are in.
Majin Piccolo appears in a what-if story of Adolescent Gohan's story mode in the Nintendo DS game Dragon Ball Z: Supersonic Warriors 2 and in the story mode of the PSP game Dragon Ball Z: Shin Budokai - Another Road, although he does not have an M on his forehead. Majin Piccolo appears with Super Buu, Cell and Frieza in Supersonic Warriors 2 and he appears with fake Goku, Teen Gohan, Vegeta, Future Trunks, and more in Shin Budokai - Another Road. After Majin Piccolo is beaten, he calms down and returns to his old self.
Future Cooler and Future Broly
Main articles: Future Cooler and Future Broly In Shin Budokai - Another Road, Future Cooler and Future Broly become Majins in servitude of Future Babidi. Like Piccolo, they lack the M mark on their foreheads.
Main article: Fighting Puppets Creations of Future Babidi in Shin Budokai - Another Road. They are warriors created from memories and are given physical form. Several types of Fighting Puppets exist: Cell puppets, Frieza puppets, Android 18 puppets, and Goku puppets; the Cell puppets are normally in Perfect form but can take a Super Perfect form, and the Frieza puppets are normally in Frieza's final form but can go up to 100%.
Demon King Daccolo
Main article: Demon King Daccolo
The EX-Fusion of Dabura and Demon King Piccolo gains Dabura's Majin Mark, though it is unknown if he is under the control of Babidi however it is somewhat likely given his evil heart thanks to him being a fusion of two Demon Kings and the fact that one of his fusees is already under Babidi's control.
