** In ''VideoGame/DragonBallZBudokaiTenkaichi 2'', Super Buu makes his position as the greater evil undeniable by (potentially) absorbing ''every'' other ArcVillain after doing the same to Fat Buu. His what-if transformations in that game (which he can take in the campaign) include absorptions of Cell, Freeza, Vegeta, Piccolo, Tenshinhan, and Yamcha.

Added DiffLines:

* EvilerThanThou:
** Fat Buu quickly establishes the pecking order over the arc's previous villains, including Babidi and Vegeta.

* FreudianExcuse: Before Mr. Satan gets through to him. He kills because he doesn't know any better, and it's all he knows, which is why he continues his rampage even without Babidi ordering him around.
* FreudianExcuseIsNoExcuse: As stated above, Buu [[ObliviouslyEvil didn't know any better]] and only knew how to kill, which is why he continued his rampage even after killing Babidi. While Goku is [[SympathyForTheDevil somewhat sympathetic]], Piccolo rebukes it, declaring outright that one's background does ''not'' excuse acts of evil. This case is also mildly [[DeconstructedTrope deconstructed]]; while the heroes are busy trying to deal with him the normal way, Mr. Satan, of all people, ultimately manages to end up befriending Buu because of Buu's child-like nature and very nearly manages to convince him to stop his killing ways, showing that if the heroes ''had'' took the time to try and explain things to Buu, they very likely could have avoided a ''lot'' of bloodshed. Of course, then some hunters [[EnemyWithout had the bright idea]] [[SuperpoweredEvilSide to try and take matters into their own hands...]]


* HeelFaceTurn: He is the reincarnation of Kid Buu, an unrepentant psychopath who blew up planets ''for fun''. However, when Kid Buu gets reincarnated into Uub, he's much more benevolent.

* ATasteOfTheirOwnMedicine: Baby is a PuppeteerParasite who invades other people's bodies, laying eggs inside them to keep control of them and attacking them from the inside. Majuub tries to transform him using Majin Buu's Chocolate Beam, but Baby sends it back at him and devours him afterwards. However, it later turns out that Majuub deliberately let himself be changed and swallowed so he could [[EatMe attack Baby from the inside, incapacitating him with pain during his fight with Goku]]; Majuub even tells Baby that he's doing what Baby himself does to everyone else.

The final villain of the ''Z'' saga, a pink blobby magical creature summoned by alien EvilSorceror Bibidi to conquer the Kais and thus to [[TakeOverTheWorld take over the universe]]. When he absorbed the Grand Supreme Kai, though, said Kai's overwhelming goodness weakened Buu's power and made him more childlike and misguided rather than the crazy and omnicidal being he originally was. Eventually Buu was sealed away, then awakened by Babidi, Bibidi's doppelganger, many, many years later. The two work together for a time, but Buu eventually gets tired of Babidi's criticism and kills him before going on a rampage of his own. Mr. Satan, who initially was sent to kill him, against all odds befriends Buu. But an unfortunate incident releases the true evil side of Buu as a LiteralSplitPersonality, and it all goes downhill from there 'til he eventually reverts to his original and much more insane form. After blowing up the earth, Buu tears around the afterlife until a final battle between him, his GoodCounterpart Fat Buu, Goku, and Vegeta commences. After some back and forth, Goku manages to obliterate him using power donated by all the citizens of Earth focused into one [[CombinedEnergyAttack Spirit Bomb]]. But rather than be completely destroyed, he is reincarnated at Goku's wish as the human [[SdrawkcabAlias Uub]] who becomes Goku's pupil at the end of the series, while his surviving good side, Fat Buu, goes on to live with Hercule on Earth.

* AchillesHeel: Buu's regeneration is [[FromASingleCell utterly ridiculous]]. But it does have one drawback- while he's regenerating from being blown apart, his disembodied pieces are defenseless. It was outright stated that even Piccolo could've completely wiped the disembodied pieces of Super Buu from existence in the Hyperbolic Time Chamber despite being orders of magnitude weaker than he,[[note]]He chastises himself for ''burning'' them instead of wiping them out; the former doesn't work since Buu can regenerate from smoke.[[/note]] and ''demonstrated'' in anime {{filler}} (for what it's worth) that [=SS2=] Vegeta and Goku can do the same. For opponents near or above his ki power, they don't even need to blow him apart him first; Vegito completely erased a piece of Gohan-Buu from existence with a small kiai and both Goku and Gotenks were stated to be capable of completely wiping out Kid Buu and Super Buu respectively with Kamehamehas at full power.[[note]]Unfortunately, both ran out of energy just before they could do so.[[/note]] The key seems to be to keep relentlessly attacking and never give him a break, because if you do, he'll be good as new in seconds.

** Whether Super Buu knew who [[RetCon Beerus]] was due to having the Kais inside him is also interesting to ponder (it's not like he'd have a reason to tell anyone if he did). On the one hand, Fat Buu didn't know who Beerus was, hinting that Majin Buu in general lacked that information. On the other, Super Buu was shown to possess knowledge that Fat Buu didn't, such as how to sense ki, so it's not implausible that his nature as a SuperpoweredEvilSide lets him access additional ''memories'' on top of additional power. Supporting this is that Elder Kai said that Buu would absorb Kibito Kai if he found him (while he seemed happy to just kill Goku, who is stronger), hinting that Buu did take a special interest in the Kais for whatever reason, and that he would make his way to the World of the Kais after dealing with Gohan and Goku. If he ''did'' know, then his NearVillainVictory would look more deliberate on his part, since at the time he knows where Old Kai and Kibito Kai are (he had Gohan's memories by then), and would know that Beerus shares a life-link with them.

* ApocalypseHow: According to the Supreme Kai, Fat Buu and Kid Buu inflicted at least multiple versions of a Class X-2. The anime, which actually ''shows'' some of the rampage, clarifies this as a Class X-3, showing an entire galaxy being stripped of its stars (and presumably planets with them) over the course of some years. Super Buu at his strongest nearly causes a Class X-4 with his universe-destroying Vice Shout, and it is stated that any version of Buu would eventually cause a Class X-4 if left to rampage for long enough.

** To Goten and Trunks, as well as Gotenks, who was created specifically to be an opponent for Buu. The boys trained endlessly to match Buu, angry at him for killing Vegeta, Gohan (who they mistakenly believed was dead at the time), and Chi-Chi (who Goten saw Buu murder right in front of his eyes). Things escalate 100-fold when Buu eats all of their friends and family on the Lookout while they were trapped in the Hyperbolic Time Chamber. From this point on Gotenks stops messing around and becomes determined to make Buu pay. Similarly Buu recognizes (Super Saiyan 3) Gotenks as the first opponent who could actually prove a threat to him with Piccolo noticing the monster has now gotten serious.

** To Vegito. Much like Gotenks, he was born for the sole purpose of facing Buu, after the monster killed/absorbed all of his family and friends. Vegito is also the one opponent who Buu has never been able to beat, and completely dominates Buu. As a result Buu hates Vegito with a burning passion.

* AssimilationBackfire: As noted, absorbing the benevolent Grand Supreme Kai severely handicapped him thanks to the Kai's inherent goodness. Also when Super Buu absorbs Gotenks, he becomes much more powerful, but when Gotenks's FusionDance wears off after its 30 minute time limit, Super Buu reverts as well, once again becoming weaker than Ultimate Gohan.

* BishonenLine: In a very convoluted example, that both plays it straight and inverts it. From the straight angle- Kid Buu is a small, black sclera/red iris eyed child like being with crazed animalistic behavior, wearing only pants/boots, his Ultra Buu form is far larger/bulkier version of the first form- acting like a savage, animalistic brute. his Fat Buu form is drastically different in shape- being more cartoonishly obese with yellow gloves/purple cape/yellow boots/black leggings/puffy pants, a capacity to think/speak like a child like being, and closed eyes that change the red iris/black sclera for black iris/white sclera like most living beings. Evil Buu- a gray skinned, lankier form wearing the Fat Buu outfit, but with black sclera eyes with white irises, and more advanced vocabulary. Super Buu being an adult looking version of the Kid Buu form, but with limited vocabulary, facial mannerisms, and mitten like fingers in the manga. His Gotenks/Piccolo/Gohan absorptions lead into the pinnacle of his power- with a more humanoid face, an eventual chin, more human-like physique, and is able to speak eloquently. He then inverts this as his absorptions are removed- going to regular yet larger Super Buu, bulkier Ultra Buu, and finally Kid Buu- playing it straight from a visual stand point, but inverting it as it's his original form. And if one counts Uub as a extension of the evolution, it's played at its most straight- with him being essentially a human compared to the pink/gray skinned humanoids he was previously.
* BizarreAlienBiology: Buu is basically a [[BlobMonster pink, gelatinous mass]], presumably magical in nature, that naturally structures itself in the form of a humanoid. He can manipulate his body in various ways, allowing for regeneration, shapeshifting, stretching limbs, etc., but he rarely reverts to an actual blob form. When he does, it's mostly to envelop and absorb people into his body, which is shown to contain its own interior pocket dimension, as seen when Vegito is absorbed inside of it and rescues the other Z Fighters that Super Buu had absorbed. In GT, Buu's unique physiology allows him and Mr. Satan to avoid being possessed by Baby's mind controlling eggs (Buu by simply ejecting it from his body, and Mr. Satan by ''hiding inside of Buu'').
** A subtle element of his biology that not many notice on a first glance- his head tentacle's default length is directly proportionate to his strength. Fat Buu and Kid Buu both have [[https://i.imgur.com/OVAsfqm.jpg very]] [[https://i.imgur.com/imuDuZN.jpg small]] head tentacles. Base Super Buu has a head tentacle that's much longer in both absolute terms (as Super Buu is around twice Kid Buu's height) and relative terms, [[https://i.imgur.com/0iw1wLF.jpg reaching past his shoulders]] [[https://i.imgur.com/VULWINh.jpg to his upper back.]] The form Buu took after absorbing the Southern Supreme Kai, which is acknowledged as stronger than base Super Buu, has a head tentacle that [[https://i.imgur.com/SMMIAd7.jpg stops at his waist.]] Finally, the head tentacle on Gotenks-Buu [[https://i.imgur.com/89mBCEy.jpg goes past his knees]] while Gohan-Buu's [[https://i.imgur.com/Opt7Jbf.jpg is slightly longer than even that and almost reaches his feet.]] This extends to ''Super'', as after Good Buu trains for a couple hours, his tentacle [[https://i.imgur.com/SjMnj5w.jpg gets longer.]]
** Given his preferred diet and certain comments he makes that hint he's unable to digest meat, it's likely his biology is sugar based rather than protein based like life as we know it.

** One, the anime (both original and the various dubs), as well as an early fan-made English translation of the manga, has Old Kai stating that absorbing the Grand Supreme Kai and South Supreme Kai "weakened" Buu, when the original manga's text was more about them making him docile. The official Viz English translation of the manga fixes this: instead, Old Kai says "so the souls he ate '''tamed''' him", with no reference to power.

* ChallengeSeeker: All forms of Majin Buu are this to some extent. Fat Buu doesn't destroy the Earth because Goku promised him a challenging fight in three days. Super Buu demands the challenger sooner, and keeps Gohan around after absorbing Gotenks and Piccolo so he can test his new power. Kid Buu fights Goku, Vegeta, and Fat Buu instead of nuking the planet like he did to the Earth because he was having fun fighting them.
* ComboPlatterPowers: Buu has several sets of {{Story Breaker Power}}s that make him close to invincible. He can regenerate from vapors, which completely blows Cell's regeneration out of the water, can grow stronger from absorbing other people, taking their power and techniques into his own being, and has a beam that can change objects or people into anything he choses. This is on top of him being extremely powerful and he was the strongest thing in existence for ''billions'' of years.
* CombatSadomasochist: For whatever reason, Buu ''enjoys'' being hit by attacks, trusting in his HealingFactor to let him shrug off whatever damage anybody inflicts on him. This is made most explicit when Fat Buu fights Basil in the Super Universe Tournament, where he spends the first minute or so of the fight letting Basil beat him up without even trying to fight back before laughing it off, literally describing it as playing in the subbed version. He continues to let Basil pummel him afterwards... until Mr. Satan gets hurt. [[BerserkButton Then Buu's not in a playing mood anymore.]]

* DumbassNoMore: Majin Buu is a slow-witted villain. After transforming into Super Buu, he gains an intelligence boost to some degree, but is still prone to impulsive acts and is lacking in patience and human emotion or mannerisms. However, after getting thrashed by Gohan, he manages to come up with a plan and absorb Piccolo (one of the most intelligent characters in the series) and Gotenks (a character at least his equal in power) into his body. After that, he becomes a GeniusBruiser, starts playing mindgames (the Funimation dub adds emotional torment to this) on his opponents, having backup plans, and overall being a ruder version of Cell, boosted even further after absorbing Gohan himself. And then he inverts the trope, being forcibly downgraded into his Kid Buu form. His original form, which is like a very young child, is unrestrained and his most dangerous form.

** All Buu forms to Goku. They love [[BloodKnight fighting]] and [[BigEater food]] above all else, learn techniques from just seeing them once, are [[{{Manchild}} childish]], yet smarter than people give them credit for, can be playful and goofy while beating on someone, and are consider to be the most powerful and dangerous beings in the universe. While Goku is a Saiyan who cares about his friends and family as well as protecting them from evil threats, Buu however(at least in the cases of Super/Kid Buu) is an entity who doesn't care about anything besides himself and destroys and kills for fun.

* FunPersonified: Buu is a rare evil example. He is by far the most goofy villain in the entire series. He is like a five year old with the power of a god. The fact that he looks like mutated bubblegum and has a beam that can turn people into candy and cookies really highlights this aspect of his personality. Despite all this, he is the most dangerous villain in all of the manga and the ''Z'' anime, especially his pure, original form.

* HairTriggerTemper[=/=]MoodSwinger: To an extreme extent: he can snap from calm, inquisitive or cheerful to a towering temper or a malevolent vindictiveness and back again with terrifying speed given the power he has. This makes his rampages as Fat Buu all the more disturbing, and as Super Buu it makes him nothing less than an unchecked time bomb. Keeping him calm until the heroes have someone to deal with him is a major plot point.

Keeping him calm until the heroes have someone to deal with him is a major plot point.



* MadeOfPlasticine: Notable in that while everyone else is pretty much MadeOfIron, even normal handgun rounds can punch holes in him. Of course, he makes up for this with [[FromASingleCell ridiculous]] [[HealingFactor regeneration]] [[NighInvulnerability powers]]. This gave the animators a good chance to go wild with the kind of injuries Buu would suffer, ranging from being blasted to bits to get his head smushed into his neck, and so on.

* RealityWarper: The strangest example in ''Dragon Ball''. While other reality warpers have more unique techniques, Buu's are downright destructive and powerful. He can literally destroy all of reality and everything in it... by screaming. No one, not even himself know how or why this works. When Super Buu gets mad enough while losing to Vegito, he has a freak out that Vegito realizes can destroy the entire universe. Vegito, being far stronger than Super Buu barely manages to beat the technique and smacks Buu so hard that he ''calms down'' and starts thinking logically again.

** A TropeCodifier for anime villains, though not at first, as both given later revelations about his origin or lack there of, it's likely a nod to Sun Wukong gaining red eyes. Evil Buu and Super Buu at first, had white pupils instead of the iconic red. However, after Gotenks managed to hit him, his eyes turned red, possibly his version of TurnsRed as [[BloodKnight finally being aware of a powerful fighter]].
** It's really more to do with the anime adjusting itself to the manga, as the color of Buu's pupils was only revealed at a color chapter cover.

* SmarterThanYouLook: ''All'' the Buus display this at one point or another, and it leads to the biggest blunders anybody opposing them makes in assuming they're ''entirely'' stupid. Fat Buu is always aware that Babidi needs him, and plays along until he gets tired of it and easily outwits his "master". Super Buu is probably the best example, as he deliberately acted like a simpleminded thug to get others to get overconfident with him, even managing to fake his fight with Gotenks as serious when in reality he was waiting for Gohan. Even Kid Buu gets in on this, quickly realizing that Goku won't throw the Spirit Bomb since Vegeta is in harm's way, and parks himself ''right'' on top of the felled prince to render Goku unable to move as he'd drop the Spirit Bomb, but also unable to throw it, leaving him at Buu's lack of mercy.

The form in which Buu appears when Babidi releases him, much to everyone's surprise. "Fat Buu" is an obese, gluttonous, genie-like creature who looks like he's made out of bubblegum. In this form, all Buu cares about is eating sweets, fighting strong opponents, and blowing up cities for fun, unaware of the pain he causes. This changes when Mr. Satan tries (and miserably fails) to defeat him and instead becomes Buu's friend, something which gradually puts Buu on the path of leaning to care for all life. When Satan (and Bee, a stray dog Buu adopts) is shot by a human criminal, Buu is overcome with rage and pain, and his [[LiteralSplitPersonality evil side]] literally emerges from him, fights him, and absorbs him, turning into Super Buu.

** His introductory scene shows this well. He gives [=SS2 Gohan=] and the Supreme Kai a huge head start to run away, before finally starting to chase them. He not only easily catches them, he proceeds to FlashStep in front of them without them realizing he'd moved at all.

* AmbiguousSituation: Goku tells Piccolo he could have most likely defeated Buu in his Super Saiyan 3 form, but whether this was true causes some serious doubt for a few reasons. Mainly, his first bout against Buu is largely Buu simply playing around and taking the fight much less seriously than Goku and yet the two seemed to be about even. Secondly, the stamina drain of Super Saiyan 3 affects him greatly in a fight much more than he anticipated, and seeing how a full powered fight between them both would have prolonged things-- it causes major doubt on whether or not Goku would win.

* BigEater: Fat Buu ''loves'' to eat, and devours massive amounts of sweets, candy and pastry at the slightest opportunity. In fact, he's such a glutton that he will devour ''entire city populations'' by changing all of the people into food.

** It's also lampshaded during Vegeta's fight with Buu. Goten and Trunks rush in (each were shown earlier in the arc to be decently close to the adult Super Saiyans during spars) and offer to give him a senzu and all go at Buu together. Vegeta simply says that it won't make any difference.

* DependingOnTheWriter: Buu's characterisation in the post-''Z'' series varies drastically. In ''GT'', he's portrayed as surprisingly OlderAndWiser since ''Z'', as he's much more levelheaded and verbose than before (in the Japanese dub, at least). He recognizes his connection with Uub, which leads to him effectively sacrificing himself in order to fuse with Uub and give him a mighty power boost, much like Kami to Piccolo. Although Uub still gets beaten by Baby, Majuub later attacking Baby from the inside proves instrumental to saving the day. In ''Super'', Buu is infamously treated as TheLoad, being totally unreliable in contributing anything to the Dragon Team's efforts in most arcs (in fact, he sometimes makes matter worse, like with Beerus's "pudding incident") and still generally acting like a big toddler.
* DiscOneFinalBoss: Fat Buu ends up as this to Super/Kid Buu, since they are both more powerful than he is and far more evil.

* HiddenDepths: The first non-violent interaction we see Buu have is with a homeless blind child who doesn't recognizes him due to his blindness. Puzzled by the child's lack of fear towards him, Buu first heals of his blindness so he can scare him. But when the blind kid is too much in awe of Buu for having given him the ability to see to be scared of him, Buu discovers that he rather likes being praised for doing a good deed, so when the formerly-blind kid reveals that he was actually out searching for milk, Buu decides to help him further out by getting him some milk (albeit by turning the milk man into a carton of milk). This is the first sign that Buu isn't inherently evil, he just sincerely doesn't understand that hurting and killing people is wrong.

* LaserGuidedKarma: Despite being redeemed with the help of Mr. Satan, he still had to pay his dues. Namely, being the weakest and least skilled Buu form, he gets his butt kick mercilessly by his evil counterparts. He gets turned into chocolate and eating by Evil Buu, exactly what he did to many of his victims, and later he is overwhelmed and beaten to near death by Kid Buu, again just like he did to his victims.

* MonsterProgenitor: In the timeline leading to ''Videogame/DragonBallOnline'', Buu spontaneously decides he wants a wife and family after reading one of Mr. Satan's romance novels and creates a wife in the same manner he created Evil Buu, though formed from his desire for love rather than from struggling with grief and anger. He then shoots Miss Buu with a "love love beam", causing her to produce kids. From that would eventually spawn the entire Majin race. Thankfully, they're "monster" in name only, showing none of the original Buu's psychopathic tendencies. Each subsequent generation of Majins also happen to be [[OlderIsBetter weaker than the last]], though with training and a wish from the Dragon all of these newer Majins have the potential to become as strong as "Pure" Buu.

* PowerLimiter: Fat Buu becomes one to both Super and Kid Buu. After Evil Buu ate Fat Buu and became Super Buu, he becomes more powerful, but hindered by emotions such as pride, arrogance, and his friendship with Mr. Satan. Once Fat Buu is disconnected from Super Buu, Buu returns to his pure form. Power-wise, he isn't as powerful as Super Buu at his strongest, but he ''is'' the most dangerous form of Buu because he has ''no'' emotional restraints and can use his power to its fullest. However, despite not being physically connected to Kid Buu, Fat Buu still manages to influence him, keeping Kid Buu from killing Mr. Satan until he finally spits him out.
* PutOnABus: In ''Dragon Ball Super'''s Tournament of Power arc, he underwent intense training which looked quite promising, since he went from fat to fit and beat. Unfortunately, he went overboard with training and ended up taking a two month "nap".

* SuperPrototype: According to the backstory of ''Online'', as the Majin race became more numerous, his immense power divided with his lineage. Over time, the Majins weren't that much more stronger than your standard Earthling or Namekian (despite Buu himself exceeding any of the above).
* SurprisinglyRealisticOutcome: He's the SuperPrototype to the Majin Race, with his distant descendants being no stronger than your typical Saiyan-hybrid or Namekian. Makes sense, since the AdamAndEvePlot he had with Miss Buu amounted to magical inbreeding (and inbreeding can cause a lot of problems through genetic defects stemmed from gene pools that're too similar).
** Without the wish to erase the memories of everyone on earth (sans Goku’s allies) of his existence? Majin Buu wouldn’t be able to live a normal life on Earth. It doesn’t matter that he decided not to kill anymore after all was said and done; he still killed millions of people, with his other forms outright destroying the planet. Without that wish nobody on Earth would forgive him otherwise.

* UnstoppableRage: His power rises as he gets angrier, something noted by both Goku and Vegeta. This is implied to be because of him shedding the Grand Supreme Kai's RestrainingBolt influence and gaining more access to the power of Kid Buu and South Supreme Kai. When he gets angry enough, he expels his latest power up which then forms a whole new being, Evil Buu.

Instead, he created a portal to the outside by screaming loud enough. It was so impossible, even Buu was surprised. Afterwards, the trope is deconstructed: if he could do it then anyone with equal or greater power can do it.

* BondVillainStupidity: Averted on '''every level'''. Super Buu is very pragmatic in battle and will not hesitate to kill, eat, or absorb anyone who gets in his way. The worst thing about it is that he does it with a great amount of surprise. No evil laughing, taunting or mocking. Just straight up death. The only instances he'll every draw out a battle is to discover the weakness of his opponents. When he does find out their weaknesses, he will exploit them to devastating effect. Whether it's flaws in power or personality traits of the opponent. Although, he was caught somewhat flat-footed when Gotenks revealed he could go Super Saiyan 3 and would likely have been killed had the fusion not broken apart when it did. Not to mention, he only escaped from the Time Chamber because he threw a temper tantrum, otherwise he would have been trapped in there forever.

* EvilGloating: He's very fond of these after absorbing Piccolo. He uses these on top of his BreakThemByTalking approach. He rips Gohan apart mentally by bragging how he took his brother and mentor, and how they are upset at him for letting them be absorb and calls him a failure. When he's ready to kill Gohan, he mocks him for being worthless since his father wasn't holding his hand. Once he takes Gohan after the fusion with Gotenks breaks, he spends several minutes teasing Goku about failing to save Gohan and how his failure meant the end of the Earth.

[[DoubleSubverted The second thing he did is kill every human on earth in one attack because he was bored.]]
* GeniusBruiser: Not only is Super Buu extremely powerful, but he OutGambitted '''everyone''' (though mostly because even before he absorbed Piccolo [[SmarterThanYouLook he tended to act much stupider than he actually was]]) and it wasn't just a basic case of Super Buu outsmarting them or getting lucky, he covertly came up several plans to become the strongest in the universe and with every plan he came up with, he thought of several back-up plans as well. He also manipulated many of the heroes into making himself seem like less of a threat and when the opportunity presented itself from the heroes being arrogant, he would not only take advantage of it but also made sure that there were some contingency plans if things were to go against him. And it worked like a charm, because he technically ''never loses a battle''. And any battle that it seems like he is losing, he's losing on purpose because it's all a part of his plan. It took the StoryBreakerPower of [[ShowyInvincibleHero Vegito]] '''just to slow him down.''' [[spoiler: Although in the case of Vegito, he was purposely prolonging the battle so he could be absorbed and rescue the others taken by Buu. Otherwise, he would have killed Buu easily]]. Also, while it's not really elaborated upon, he was able to accurately calculate the entire planet's population just by walking around the Lookout for a minute and then mentally sort through ''billions'' of unique ki signatures in order to only kill who he wanted to. It's later revealed that in this form Buu has two gods absorbed, who presumably add a ton of mystical and universal knowledge (though Super Buu never uses it).

Also, while it's not really elaborated upon, he was able to accurately calculate the entire planet's population just by walking around the Lookout for a minute and then mentally sort through ''billions'' of unique ki signatures in order to only kill who he wanted to. It's later revealed that in this form Buu has two gods absorbed, who presumably add a ton of mystical and universal knowledge (though Super Buu never uses it).



* {{Hypocrite}}: After getting his butt beaten by Vegito, Buu says Vegito cheated by fusion together. ''This'' coming from the same person who absorbed Gotenks, Piccolo, and Gohan and ''bragged'' about it. Vegito points out the hypocrisy by saying that Buu ate his sons to become stronger.

** He never technically loses a fight. 18/Krillin/Yamcha/Tenshinhan, Piccolo, Super Saiyan 2 Vegeta, Super Saiyan 3 Goku, Super Saiyan Gotenks, Super Saiyan 3 Gotenks, and Ultimate Gohan [[note]]he briefly tangled with Gohan earlier and was losing, but the fight was inconclusive due to Buu fleeing. He came back, absorbed Gotenks, and stomped Gohan[[/note]] are all easily defeated by him via various methods, ranging from BatmanGambit to sneak absorption to straight up brute force. Even Super Vegito doesn't actually beat him, despite possessing the capability to; he gets absorbed intentionally in a gambit to free his friends, but this ends up backfiring when he defuses due to Buu's BizarreAlienBiology, and Super Buu subsequently stomps Goku and Vegeta apart, mostly because they can't kill him inside his own body where they're the size of insects. In the end, he's taken down by internal sabotage, when Vegeta yanks out Fat Buu's pod just as Super Buu is about to kill Goku.

** He does the same thing when fighting [=SS2=] Vegeta and Goku again inside his body in his base form, smiling the whole time, letting himself get blown apart by attacks even his weaker fat form had no trouble tanking (while laughing), and even explicitly saying that he's playing around midway through the fight. He only goes for the kill after Goku and Vegeta are both too injured/exhausted to provide any more entertainment, by which point it's too late. This entire sequence is {{filler}}- in the manga Vegeta went straight to ripping out Fat Buu's pod before Super Buu could do anything.

* LaserGuidedKarma: He is one of the vilest characters in the entire series, second only to Frieza and King Piccolo. He also goes technically undefeated since he absorbed anyone stronger than he was and Vegito threw his fight. Which is why it is somewhat fitting that he is the only villain [[spoiler: until Super]] to be ''erased''. After Vegeta pulled Fat Buu free, Super Buu dissolves away, reverting Buu back to his original form who has a different personality. Once Kid Buu is killed, he is reborn into Uub, meaning that Super Buu can never return in any form in this world or the next. A fitting end to such a JerkAss.

* LogicalWeakness: Assimilating others helps Buu grow stronger by gaining their powers, abilities, and memories. However, this ''also'' forces Buu to absorb their ''weaknesses'', too--both physical and mental. His absorption of Gotenks gave him a major power boost, but that only lasted as long as their fusion limit, at which point he was left with the far weaker Goten and Trunks. In addition, because his absorption process bases itself off of who the strongest person he absorbed was, his power drastically weakens when Gotenks defuses because the next strongest person he has is [[CantCatchUp Piccolo]], who he had absorbed because he wanted his intelligence. If not for him absorbing the even stronger then Gotenks Gohan, Goku was confident that Gohan could defeat him.

* ManipulativeBastard: Super Buu's surprisingly high intellect and cunning caught a lot of people off-guard in the Buu Arc as he ran rings around the protagonists, making himself look much stupider than he truly was to put the heroes in false sense of security and then strike when they weren't expecting it. It got to the point where he was acting like the TheChessmaster and was playing his opponents like pawns.

** Super Buu out-gambits everyone to the point he could be the trope image. He out-smarted Piccolo by killing everyone in the planet when Piccolo suggested he amuse himself with the survivors to buy more time so Trunks and Goten could train, calculating the entire population in seconds to do so. He recognized Piccolo's attempts to stall him both on the way to the time chamber (noting that they passed the same landmark twice) and right before entering (when Piccolo offered him food, he declined and outright said "you're stalling"), forcing Piccolo to cut both attempts short. He defeated the more powerful Gotenks by outlasting his Super Saiyan 3, which Piccolo thought could kill him, by hiding and masking his ki for a good chunk of the fight until Gotenks let it slip that he only had two minutes left. He escaped certain death at Gohan's hands by initiating his self-destruct near Piccolo and the kids, forcing Gohan to abandon the battle to save them, and then lowered his ki and regenerated far away. He used Gotenks' arrogance against him to convince him to fuse, distracted him with insults while carefully maneuvering a piece of goo to take him off guard, and absorbed him along with Piccolo to create the nearly invincible Super Fusion Buu that wrecked Gohan. He recognized Gohan's attempt to stall out the fusion immediately (having used the same trick himself), and stated he would finish the battle as quickly as possible while always ''physically'' verifying Gohan's presence and never falling for the "masking your ki" trick. When Goku showed up, he made sure they couldn't fuse and when his time ran out with Gotenks, he set up a back-up trap to absorb a distracted Gohan, becoming even more powerful. His only real failure was not killing Goku and instead humoring him to merge with someone, the only people left were Dende and Mr. Satan. Then again, how could even he predict Vegeta would come back since he died earlier against the much weaker Fat Buu.

* OutOfFocus: From a meta-perspective, similar to [[Characters/DragonBallCell Cell]]: despite being the most powerful and effective of Buu's incarnations and lasting much longer than Kid Buu (and about as long as Fat Buu) as the BigBad, he gets the least amount of focus in modern media of any ''Z'' BigBad outside of the movie villains ([[Characters/DragonBallBroly and even then...]]). Part of this is due to the DeaderThanDead nature of his defeat: he neither gets resurrected as a villain (like Frieza in filler/movies/''Super''/GT/games or Cell in filler/GT/games) nor does he become a member of the supporting cast (like Piccolo, Vegeta, the Androids, Fat Buu, and eventually Uub). But even independent of that, he's the most likely to get left out of merchandise and games of Buu's three main forms. He doesn't appear at all in ''VideoGame/DragonBallFighterZ'' while both Fat and Kid Buu do (both of them even [[CompositeCharacter taking his moves]]), usually doesn't get his various forms when he ''does'' show up in games, and is barely referenced after his demise while Kid Buu is referenced constantly in both GT and Super (though InUniverse this is probably because the characters themselves have no reason to make a distinction and just classify the two as the same being- not exactly incorrectly either). The only time either reference him are in very, ''very'' brief flashbacks/dream sequences. On top of that, in the ''Xenoverse'' series he plays a very small role in the story, only gets his base form represented (plus his Gohan-absorbed form in a piece of DLC in ''2''), ''and'' isn't featured as a mentor option (meaning he misses out on increased character interaction and personality tidbits), which even [[BitCharacter Bit Characters]] like Zarbon and Bojack got. Even the ''Heroes'' game and promotional material excludes him in favor of more screen time and WhatIf forms for Kid Buu.

* SmugSuper: After absorbing Gotenks, he took his time picking apart Gohan both physically and mentally since he knew Gohan would be helpless before him. He gets even more smug after absorbing Gohan, going as far as to let Goku try to merge with someone since he is certain that he is invincible.

* VillainRespect: Piccolo is a [[CantCatchUp weakling]] at this stage of the series and everyone points it out, including Buu himself. However, he still decides to absorb Piccolo in addition to Gotenks because he considers the Nameless Namekian to be valuable for his brainpower. Most likely he decided that based on the various tactics that Piccolo used to stall him,[[note]]Telling Buu he could have fun killing Earth's remaining humans; pointing to Videl and telling him "Mr. Satan's daughter wants you to wait"; leading him the "long way" to the room; trying to offer him food before going in.[[/note]] the trap he set in the time chamber, and the instructions he gave Gotenks, who he coached during the fight.

Although how much weaker he actually happens to be a [[BrokenBase hot debate subject]]. However, he is still a legitimate threat, and is indeed described as being the most ''dangerous'' of the Buu forms. This is because, whilst his raw power has decreased, he's also ''absolutely insane'' and so neither holds back at all nor has any drives beyond simply annihilating everything in sight. Fat Buu is just a dangerously powerful and uneducated child, Super Buu is a hotblooded and arrogant warrior, but Kid Buu is a near-mindless engine of destruction.

* LaserGuidedKarma: He is one of the most vile vilest characters in the entire series, second only to Frieza and King Piccolo. He also goes technically undefeated since he absorbed anyone stronger than he was and Vegito threw his fight. Which is why it is somewhat fitting that he is the only villain [[spoiler: until Super]] to be ''erased''. After Vegeta pulled Fat Buu free, Super Buu dissolves away, reverting Buu back to his original form who has a different personality. Once Kid Buu is killed, he is reborn into Uub, meaning that Super Buu can never return in any form in this world or the next. A fitting end to such a JerkAss.



* ManipulativeBastard: Super Buu's surprisingly high intellect and cunning caught a lot of people off-guard in the Buu Arc as he ran rings around the protagonists, making himself look much stupider than he truly was to put the heroes in false sense of security and then strike when they weren't expecting it. It got to the point where he was acting like the TheChessmaster and was playing his opponets like pawns.
* MoralEventHorizon: InUniverse - Gotenks didn't take Buu seriously, despite him killing 80% of the planet during his rampaged. Even as the more ruthless Super Buu who crushed Goten's mom after transforming her into an egg wasn't enough to make Gotenks be serious. It's not until Buu ate everyone on the Lookout, including Trunks' mom, that Gotenks became righteously pissed and swear to kill Buu for everything he has done.

* NearVillainVictory: Probably the closest example in the whole series. After enacting Plan B and taking Gohan off guard to absorb him, Buu has basically won. ''Every'' member of the cast is either dead or absorbed, except Goku, who is completely incapable of opposing Buu in any way, and is so desperate that he considers fusing with Mr. Satan, even though he knows it would be pointless and Buu would still be capable of killing him in one punch. On top of that, he goes straight for the kill, which Goku can only slightly delay by teleporting to the other side of the planet. Luckily for the universe, King Yamma brought back Vegeta giving Goku some fusion fodder, triggering the series of events that lead to Super Buu's reversion into Kid Buu,. But if Vegeta hadn't been sent back or, hell, had even been five seconds late, the series would have ended on a ''very'' depressing note. This even more so the case retroactively, after ''Super'' revealed that he could have killed Beerus without ever meeting him just by killing Kibito Kai... which Buu ''was'' going to do, according to the Old Kai himself.[[note]]In chapter 501, he notes that if Super Buu kills Goku and Gohan, he'll eventually make his way to the World of the Kais.[[/note]] No one would have been willing or able to stop him.

* NoNonsenseNemesis: His first move (after gruesomely killing a bystander) is to fly straight to Kami's Lookout and demand that Piccolo present the "worthy opponent" that he had been promised (Gotenks). When Piccolo tries to stall for time by pointing out that there are people left on Earth for Buu to kill, Buu immediately annihilates just about every bystander left on the planet Earth with an energy wave he calls the "Human Extinction" attack, to the horror of everyone. He then demands, with no further distractions, to see his opponent. He later declares that even if Goku were to [[FusionDance fuse]] with Gohan or Vegeta, they still couldn't defeat him, but then immediately adds that he isn't going to take any chances and will just kill them now to be certain. His big mistake in the end was to humor Goku to merged with someone since he fully believed it was futile. [[SpannerInTheWorks He had no way knowing that Vegeta would return]].

* VillainousValor: Unlike most other villains, he starts out below the heroes. He finds himself outmatched by Gotenks once he gets serious and is completely beating down by Gohan after he gets his power-up. He gets around this with deception and a few surprisingly good plans in which he absorbs anyone stronger than he is.

* YourMagicsNoGoodHere: The fusion achieved by the Potara earrings is ''supposed'' to be permanent, but when Vegito is absorbed by Super Buu, immediately after lowering the shield he used to avoid being completely integrated into Buu (like Piccolo, Gohan and Gotenks were), there's something about Buu's innards that splits Vegito back into Goku and Vegeta. This is later {{revis|ion}}ed in ''Anime/DragonBallSuper'', where it's revealed that Potara Fusion is ''only'' permanent for Kais. For mortals it simply lasts an hour, and that hour just happened to be up right when he was absorbed.

Buu's original form, and the form he takes again in the end. Kid Buu is the purest form of the character, before he absorbed the Kais ages ago. Super Buu is forced back into this form after Fat Buu is separated from him again. Aside from the change in size and power, this also causes a significant decrease in intellect, to the point that this Buu is more animal than person. Kid Buu knows nothing but destructive rage and literally destroys the Earth just for fun (the Namek Dragon Balls put it back together again.) He then ''rips a hole in reality'' to do the same to the Other World, but is confronted by Goku, Vegeta, and Fat Buu. The latter two manage to hold Kid Buu off while Goku gathers his biggest Spirit Bomb ever, which finally ends Kid Buu's reign of terror.

* AttentionDeficitOohShiny: Kid Buu demonstrates an inability to focus on multiple enemies at once, immediately shifting his attention on whomever catches his attention no matter what point he was in the fight previously. This allows Vegeta, Fat Buu and Hercule to all intervene multiple times to give Goku precious time and assure Buu's defeat.

* BigBad: This incarnation of Buu takes the role in volume 42, with his reign lasting about half of that volume's pagespace. This makes him Buu's shortest-lived form, but he's still the final villain of the original manga and ''Z'' anime.
* TheBerserker: Kid Buu fights like a monstrous, wild animal and has no formal training, only pure strength and savagery. He spares no one in combat and has no friends or foes so he can attack and kill whoever he wants.

* BreatherBoss: An odd InUniverse example. After [[OOCIsSeriousBusiness doing everything in their power to immediately end Super Buu]] and ''avoid'' fighting him if at all possible, Goku and Vegeta become totally willing to screw around against Kid Buu and overall don't take him seriously. To be fair to them, he's a lot weaker than his previous incarnation, and while he ''did'' destroy the Earth this killed no one except four unconscious people still out cold from the struggle with Super Buu (the whole planet had already been depopulated by his previous two incarnations). That the heroes could've easily defeated him at any point using any one of a half dozen methods is [[LampshadeHanging repeatedly lampshaded]], and considered highly frustrating by [[OnlySaneMan Elder Kai]]. Thankfully for Buu, [[BloodKnight Goku and Vegeta]] are more concerned with [[HonorBeforeReason having fun fights and making moral points]] than anything else, so he lasts long enough to have a drawn out final battle.

* ClippedWingAngel: Zigzagged. Kid Buu is not as powerful as Super Buu (after absorbing Goten, Trunks, Piccolo, and Gohan). Although how much weaker he actually is happens to be a [[BrokenBase hot debate subject]]. However, he is still a legitimate threat, and is indeed described as being the most ''dangerous'' of the Buu forms. This is because, whilst his raw power has decreased, he's also ''absolutely insane'' and so neither holds back at all nor has any drives beyond simply annihilating everything in sight. Fat Buu is just a dangerously powerful and uneducated child, Super Buu is a hotblooded and arrogant warrior, but Kid Buu is a near-mindless engine of destruction.

* OutOfFocus: Along with Pan, Uub has been pushed out of focus entirely since the franchise has had a revival in the late 2000s. It's justified in the case of the anime and manga though, since ''Battle of Gods'', ''Resurrection F'' and ''Dragon Ball Super'' all take place before Uub is born and/or when he's still barely a few years old. On the other hand, his lack of inclusion in things like Videogame/DragonballXenoverse is more baffling. [[spoiler:He ''does'' play a vital role in killing Moro, as it's ''his'' God Ki that is sent to Goku to finally destroy the sorcerer once and for all.]]

Added DiffLines:

* HeelFaceReincarnation: Uub is the heroic reincarnation of Majin Buu.


* BishonenLine: In a very convoluted example, that both plays it straight and inverts it. From the straight angle- Kid Buu is a small, black sclera/red iris eyed child like being with crazed animalistic behavior, wearing only pants/boots, his Ultra Buu form is far larger/bulkier version of the first form- acting like a savage, animialistic brute. his Fat Buu form is drastically different in shape- being more cartoonishly obese with yellow gloves/purple cape/yellow boots/black leggings/puffy pants, a capacity to think/speak like a child like being, and closed eyes that change the red iris/black sclera for black iris/white sclera like most living beings. Evil Buu- a gray skinned, lankier form wearing the Fat Buu outfit, but with black sclera eyes with white irises, and more advanced vocabulary. Super Buu being an adult looking version of the Kid Buu form, but with limited vocabulary, facial mannerisms, and mitten like fingers in the manga. His Gotenks/Piccolo/Gohan absorptions lead into the pinnacle of his power- with a more humanoid face, an eventual chin, more human-like physique, and is able to speak eloquently. He then inverts this as his absorptions are removed- going to regular yet larger Super Buu, bulkier Ultra Buu, and finally Kid Buu- playing it straight from a visual stand point, but inverting it as it's his original form. And if one counts Uub as a extension of the evolution, it's played at its most straight- with him being essentially a human compared to the pink/gray skinned humanoids he was previously.
