"You fool! I'm Majin Buu!"
Evil Buu represents the dark side of Majin Buu and possesses the bulk of their power, a result of Majin Buu's anger becoming more than he could resist until he expelled it as Evil Buu. This explains why his reaction to the shooting of Mr. Satan was so despicable, and even appalled the fat Majin Buu. The pure evil Majin Buu is a polar opposite of the "good" Majin Buu in all aspects apart from apparel (except for him having a dark blue cape where Good Buu has a purple cape), including the color of his flesh (a drab gray), his incredibly thin body, and gravelly manner of speech compared to the Good Buu who is incredibly fat.
In the Dragon Ball Collectible Card Game, Evil Buu's appearance changes so that the colors of his skin and clothes match Good Buu's.
Dragon Ball Z
Main article: Fusion Saga
Once he emerges from the puff of smoke in the air after Buu expelled his inner evil, Evil Buu immediately proceeds to mercilessly eliminate the crazed gunman Van Zant in the mountains. He then battles against Good Buu, with the evil incarnation quickly gaining the upper hand, with Good Buu being unable to land a hit. After dominating the battle, he consumes Good Buu after reflecting an attack meant to turn him into chocolate. Evil Buu then eats the chocolate Good Buu, causing them to re-fuse, this time with the evil on the outside instead of the inside, resulting in Super Buu, while uttering a maniacal laugh while steam was expelled from his body, when transforming.
Dragon Ball GT
Main article: Baby Saga
Evil Buu makes a cameo appearance in Dragon Ball GT during the Baby Saga. He is seen in a flashback before Good Buu and Uub fuse to create Majuub.
- Manga and Anime
It is stated that as the embodiment of Buu's concentrated wrath, Evil Buu is stronger than Good Buu (in his initial appearance), who only possess sweetness and not the power of rage. When Innocent Buu split the majority of the power went to Evil Buu. Thanks to this, Evil Buu easily defeats Good Buu with just a few blows, and then manages to blow back his Chocolate Beam with his breath alone.
Techniques and special abilities
- Flight – The ability to fly with the use of ki.

- Gut Implosion – A Heavy Finish used against Good Buu, and named in the Dragon Ball Z Collectible Card Game.
- Guilty Flash – Evil Buu charges up an energy sphere created from ki and then fires it in the form of a large reddish-orange energy wave. He used the attack to kill Van Zant, destroying the entire mountain the gunman was on as well.
- Super Kamehameha – Evil Buu uses the Super Kamehameha during his fight against Majin Buu in the anime. He also uses it in video games, where it has a pink/white color.

- Flame Shower Breath – A more powerful version of the Super Breath. It was created for the video games, and it is displayed as white in the Budokai Tenkaichi series. Upon contact with an eventual opponent, the flame creates an explosion.
- Super Explosive Wave – An attack also only used in the video games. To perform it, Evil Buu crosses his arms over his chest at crouches slightly. Then an electric aura will surround him and, after a few seconds, he unleashes all his energy at once by spreading his arms and legs out, thus creating a destructive, pink energy wave around himself that obliterates anything in its path. Evil Buu might use it as a shield from incoming fire, or for destroying his opponents.
- Antenna Beam – An attack fired from the antenna on his head, displaying a pink electrifying beam that, upon impact, paralyzes the opponent for a short amount of time. Evil Buu uses this in the Budokai Tenkaichi series.
Main article: Super Buu Super Buu (超ブウ Chō Bū), also called Majin Buu (Evil) (魔人ブウ （悪） Majin Bū (Aku)), is the result of Evil Buu absorbing Good Buu. This form specializes in absorbing enemy combatants, such as several of the Z Fighters, which results in a massive power increase for Super Buu. However the absorption of Good Buu causes his manner of speech to revert as a side effect of the absorption (as he gains Good Buu's manner of speaking) though it improves as Super Buu absorbs others along with his intelligence and personality traits.
It should be noted that Super Buu is essentially the reverse of Innocent Buu, as his evil traits (embodied by Evil Buu) are dominate in Super Buu, while in Innocent Buu the goodness of Grand Supreme Kai (embodied by Good Buu) is dominate.
Main articles: Kid Buu and Pure Majin This is the original incarnation of Buu, once summoned by Bibidi. He is stated by Old Kai and Shin to be the most dangerous version of the being. Once Good Buu's pod is unconnected from Super Buu he reverts into his pure form, Kid Buu.
It is implied that Good Buu's removal purified Evil Buu's Super Buu form due to the removal of his absorptions represented by Good Buu (their removal in this manner apparently caused Evil Buu to revert into Kid Buu as opposed to his base form which was a byproduct of fission as Super Buu only existed due to Evil Buu absorbing Good Buu which ended when Vegeta removed Good Buu's pod) causing him to revert to Kid Buu instead of his base form which is the embodiment of the evil within Innocent Buu (who was created as a result of Kid Buu's absorption ability).
In this form, the original personality of Kid Buu is restored, causing him to become violent, unpredictable, and completely devoid of restraint making him far more dangerous than any previous incarnation as they all possessed some form of restraint (Evil Buu killed Van Zant mainly to fulfill Innocent Buu's desire to make the gunman pay a desire which conflicted with Buu's promise to Mr. Satan to stop killing resulting in Evil Buu becoming a separate entity from Good Buu). However as the unconnected pod containing Good Buu was left inside Buu's body, Kid Buu retained Good Buu's memories which prevented him from harming Mr. Satan, however unlike Super Buu, Kid Buu would not allow these memories to restrain him and spit out Good Buu to remove the influence of said memories on him, leaving him completely unrestrained and without any sense of mercy, making him evil incarnate, as Evil Buu's killing of Van Zant while malicious was in a sense justifiable as it was driven by a desire to take revenge on Van Zant for hurting Mr. Satan and Bee (As the evil fission of Innocent Buu, Evil Buu by his nature is essentially an impure evil incarnation of Kid Buu within Innocent Buu). Though he loses the power of his absorptions up to that point, Kid Buu is still incredibly powerful and stronger than Good Buu much like Evil Buu, though lacking the latter's restraint and sanity, making him far more dangerous.

- Evil Buu vs. Good Buu
- Evil Buu's voice is high-pitched in Dragon Ball Z: Budokai Tenkaichi; this is fixed later on. However, he still only yells and grunts in the Budokai Tenkaichi series despite being able to speak in the series.
- On a side note, in the remastered release of the Fusion saga, the vocal effect to make his voice sound deeper was removed.
- Evil Buu is the only Buu form to refer to himself with correct grammar (without the absorption of Piccolo). He says "I'm Majin Buu" instead of "Me Majin Buu" or simply "Buu" like the other forms. This could possibly mean that he is the most intelligent of Buu's four main forms.
- Theoretically, Evil Buu and the Kid Buu who appears at the end of the series are the same being, Kid Buu being the pure Evil Buu (without Piccolo, Gotenks, Gohan, and the fat Majin Buu/Supreme Kais).
- He is the only form of Buu not to display any stretching of his body parts in the manga/anime; however, he has this ability in video games. Also, while still having a pink aura, Evil Buu is the only incarnation of Buu to not have pink skin.
- Evil Buu is also the only form of Buu to not have the Transfiguration Beam.
- An image depicting Babidi's forces in Daizenshuu 4 shows an alternately colored version of Evil Buu with pink skin and red eyes, the same color as the other Buus on that image. The other pictures in that specific section of the Daizenshuu are all colored in pink/red and black and white tones, including members of the Ginyu Force.
- Evil Buu is also depicted with pink skin in the Dragon Ball Collectible Card Game.
- Along with his good counterpart, Evil Buu is one of the first Majins known to have been created via fission. In Dragon Ball Online, it is revealed that Good Buu himself would later use fission to create a female companion named Miss Buu whom along Good Buu (who became Mr. Buu), went on to become the preverbal Adam and Eve of the Majin race. In Xenoverse 2, in an alternate timeline Majin Buu creates the Majin family via fission instead. However, these fissions are not evil due to Good Buu's pure heart.
