* {{Expy}}: His first design is identical to [[DragonBallMajinBuu Kid Buu]], [[DivergentCharacterEvolution before gaining a more unique form.]] Likewise, his idea of controlling the world thanks to mind control is taken from [[DragonBallZMovieVillains Garlick Jr]]. However, the main villain he resembles overall is arguably [[Characters/DragonBallCell Cell]], his relationship to Dr Myuu being [[spoiler: at first glance]] identical to that of Cell with Gero, and both Baby and Cell being artificial lifeforms who can survive FromASingleCell and both are {{Power Parasite}}s (albeit of different sorts) who acquire the powers of other powerful warriors, up to and including Saiyans and notably including Vegeta, both start off dangerous but weak and spend a good portion of their arc stealing the powers of others to grow stronger, and both even have their original plans thwarted by an unknowing Trunks only to end up using Trunks to further their goals through a bit of XanatosSpeedChess (Cell stealing his time machine and Baby [[PeoplePuppets brainwashing Trunks and using him to conquer Earth]], respectively).

* KnightOfCerebus: With the possible exception of Dr Myuu [[spoiler: who is just his pawn anyway]], he is the first truly dangerous villain of the ''GT'' saga, the rest being mostly one-shot VillainOFTheWeek and generally either powerful but [[NobleDemon noble]], or evil but stupid or weak. Baby however is neither noble nor stupid, is an extremely evil and very, very dangerous menace who could potentially threaten the entire universe, and while initially not very strong manages to use GrandTheftMe and other tricks to become one of the most powerful villains in the entire franchise, wiping the floor with several prominent characters in the process.

* LaserGuidedKarma: He's a ''villain'' in ''{{Dragon Ball}}''. This was ''bound'' to happen.

* LaserGuidedKarma: He's An almost literal example when Goku vaporises him with a ''villain'' in ''{{Dragon Ball}}''. This was ''bound'' to happen.carefully aimed Kamehameha as Baby passes by the Sun.



* RevengeBeforeReason: His hatred for the Saiyans makes him take some really insane routes. Pan even points out the Saiyans who wiped out his race are long gone, Baby replies he doesn't care. Presumably, the reason he opts to remain possessing Vegeta rather than going to to possess the more powerful Goku- something he considered doing early on- was because Vegeta was the Prince of the Sayain race and the son of the man who destroyed his people while Goku was just a lowly warrior, making Vegeta better from the perspective of poetic justice, but poorer from the BoringButPractical one, and ultimately it is Goku who defeats and kills him.

* AccidentalMisnaming / DoNotCallMePaul / EmbarrassingNickname / OnlyKnownByTheirNickname: Japanese only, but apparently "Baby" is not his real name and it is not even clear that he ''has'' a real name; it is just what Dr Myuu called him [[spoiler: after Myuu forgot that Baby created ''him'' and not the other way around]]. In the Japanese original, Baby actually tells Myuu (after killing him) that he ''hates'' Myuu calling him that, but since neither the audience nor the characters have any other name for him that's the one that sticks.

* WithGreatPowerComesGreatInsanity: Subverted; when he becomes a Golden Oozaru, he goes on a rampage on his own planet, like Oozarus are wont to do, but when Goku questions this he reveals that he, as just a parasite inside Vegeta, is unaffected, and was just pretending. Of course, arguably double subverted since anyone who decides to pretend to be insane to justify testing out new powers on his own people wantonly is probably rather insane anyway, and he does act much more rashly and impulsively while in this form.

Added DiffLines:

* ArchEnemy: Sees himself as one for the Saiyan race as a whole, the Saiyans being the ones who destroyed ''his'' race and Baby being created specifically to destroy the Saiyans in retaliation.

* AxCrazy: Baby was never all that sane to begin with- being an obsessive, power-hungry, genocidal parasite out for revenge against a dead race-, but he goes well and truly off the deep end as he grows more and more powerful, to the point where he ''fakes'' being AxCrazy and going on a rampage, only to start considering blowing up the Earth just to hurt Goku suggesting he isn't "faking" as much as he thinks he is.



* TheBadGuyWins: In a sense, Baby manages to get everything he wanted. He manages to TakeOverTheWorld, get revenge on the near-extinct Saiyans by [[spoiler: [[DemonicPossession possessing Vegeta]]]], and recreates the Tuffle homeworld by wishing on the Dragonballs, even getting Goku to deliver them to him. It's only after he achieves his ambitions that things start falling apart for him, success and power getting to his, overriding his sense and leading him to become an AxCrazy lunatic who can be outsmarted and ultimately defeated.
