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.

Video Game Appearances
The leader of the Tuffle parasites, Baby, appears in numerous video games. Humans controlled by Tuffle parasites appear as regular enemies in Dragon Ball GT: Transformation: Mad Wrestler (Hammer), Mad Wrestler 2, Mad Wrestler 3, Evil Suit (Dollar), Evil Suit 2, and Evil Suit 3.
In Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 as part of the Extra Pack 3 DLC, in a time fragment timeline that appears in New Parallel Quest 124: "Downfall of the Ultimate Saiyan", in addition to Trunks, Pan is also successfully infected. Infected Pan and Infected Trunks join Super Baby 2 in confronting Super Saiyan 4 Goku and his Time Patrol allies but Goku is soon defeated due to Infected Pan and Infected Trunks sending power to Baby. Goku's Time Patrol allies discover Baby is practically invincible as long as Pan and Trunks are giving him energy. However this also drains his slaves health and he becomes vulnerable when they are defeated or run out of health. During an Ultimate Finish, Baby transforms into Great Ape Baby causing Infected Pan and Infected Trunks to revive and receive a Supervillain power-up. However, the Time Patrol defeats them all. Both Trunks and Pan are presumably freed of the parasites afterwards by the Time Patrol.
