The Tuffle parasites[1] are the parasitic members of the Tuffle race who serve Baby on Earth.


TGAL - Baby Vegeta Bulma

Vegeta and Bulma controlled by Tuffle parasites

The original Tuffle parasite is Baby, who was created on Planet Plant from the DNA of the Tuffle King. After being completed by his Machine Mutant creation Dr. Myuu on planet M-2, Baby attempts to infect everyone on Earth with other Tuffle parasites he spawned inside the Earthlings in order to recreate the Tuffle race. All of the Tuffle parasites (other than Baby) are destroyed when Kibito Kai releases the Sacred Water over the Earth, and Baby is killed when Goku blasts him and his spaceship into the Sun.


The Tuffle parasite hosts can use all their previous abilities while possessed, and also demonstrate a few abilities never shown before.

Controlled Humans

  • Enhanced Endurance – The Humans controlled by Tuffle parasites are shown to be able to get up even after being attacked by Mr. Satan. Something that they would not normally be able to do.

Controlled Z Fighters

  • Flight – Several of the possessed Z Fighters are shown still able to fly.
  • Transformation – At several points, Tuffle-possessed Gohan and Goten take on their Super Saiyan forms during battles. During the first GT Saga of Xenoverse, Demigra's Wormhole empowers Infected Trunks with Demigra's Dark Magic.
  • Ki Transfer – The Tuffle controlled Z Fighters and Humans are able to give their ki to Baby Vegeta in order to power him up to Super Baby Vegeta 2.
    • Circle of Power – An ability where the controlled Gohan, Trunks, Goten, and Bulla give their energy to Baby Vegeta to allow him to transform to Super Baby Vegeta.
