This is a list of notable techniques used by Kid Buu which have appeared in the Dragon Ball manga, the anime series Dragon Ball Z, and various video games spun off by the Dragon Ball series.

Techniques and special abilities

  • Body Manipulation – Majin Buu has complete control over the movements and functions of his flesh, muscles, veins, etc. being able to move with remarkable grace, athletic and acrobatic skill. He can control his flesh and blood to move at command, which allows him to take control over his motions, augment himself. He has full control over every aspect of his physical make-up, allowing for immense flexibility and agility, and limited shape-shifting.

  • Instant Learning – Buu can gather and assimilate any kind of knowledge and understand it fully and instantaneously, It allows Buu to instantly and perfectly perform any skill or ability he saw. This explains how he knew Kai Kai 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. In Dragon Ball Online, it is implied that this ability was inherited by Good Buu's Majin descendants allowing them to instantly learn techniques such as the Kaio-ken.

Kid Buu in his pre-regeneration state

  • Regeneration – He can regenerate his body at a sub-molecular level, allowing him to survive anything; however. His regeneration plus his endless resilience and stamina granted him 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.
  • Unknown, unfathomable power – Buu possess an odd ki signature that makes it hard to tell how strong Buu really is. Whether Buu's power level is incredible, or not that much is unknown even by Majin Buu.[1]

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.
