Self Demonstrating / Majin Buu

Go To
What you looking at? You think Buu handsome?

(Best read in the voice of Kōzō Shioya or Josh Martin.)

Me Majin Buu! Me old as time. Buu found by the wizard Bibidi, who convinced Buu he was creator, but then Buu sealed in ball. Used to be bad guy under Babidi son of Bibidi orders, but Babidi insult me so me make head go splat! Then Buu met Mr. Satan, and me no kill no more. But then bad man hurt best friend so Buu split himself up into good and evil forms. Didn't mean to, that was mistake. Me come back together strong, but wrong as Super Buu. Super Buu kill everyone but thanks to Satan, everything went better. Other bad Buu became good boy Uub and few years later, Buu fuse with Uub in one timeline. In other timeline, Buu create wife name Buuby and we make babies with Love Love Beam! Buu can turn you into candy, because candy is Buu favorite. Buu also use his own body as weapon. Buu also learn any technique Buu sees.


Prince of all saiya-jin, tyrant of the planet trade organization, and older Dumplin have articles here too! But you almost to Buu's trope list now so no reason to go to those! Though Buu can't wait to see what funny people do with Buu in future, but not if they no like it.

Stories of Buu have...

  • Aborted Arc: Like Buu said above, silly people couldn't make jokes about Buu's story because they worked too hard. At least Buu get to trick-or-treat in one of their shorts. Guy from short ran out of candy when Buu came, but Buu improvised..
  • Acrofatic: Despite me be large, Buu fight well
  • Alien Blood: Buu mimics the organs of humans but Buu "flesh" pink and Buu "blood" is purple. More easy to see with Super Buu, who absorbs and mimics more mannish features and can therefor get a bloody nose!
  • Ancient Evil: Not quite. Buu has been around for long time, since time, but Buu not always aware, much less evil. Buu become evil through taking on traits of evil people throughout eons, and even then Buu mostly fine with sleeping, more sin of sloth than wrath, until Bibidi have Buu carry out his wrath.
  • Advertisement:
  • And I Must Scream: When you looked yummy Buu would make you chocolate, or maybe cinnamon roll iced with cream cheese! Sometimes Buu not in soft mood and make you lollipop or candy cane! Buu never stop to ask if being eaten worse when you chewy or crunchy but me find crunchy no fun when Bad Buu eat me up. Many die as sweets against me teeth but me too tough to die even as hard candy, just stuck in Super Buu till Vegeta pull me loose and Small Buu spit me out.
  • Angst Nuke: Buu first show you against Vegeta, because Vegeta call Buu name and hurt Buu. Send people running and Babadi behind barrier. Video game call it "Angry Explosion" or "I hate you!" and page image of me!
  • Ass Kicks You: Buu drop down, you make funny noise!
  • Ax-Crazy: Killing people and breaking their things is fun. But Buu told that bad, so Buu stop. Super Buu and Small Buu not care what good or bad though, just kill and destroy.
  • Badass Cape: Buu got it when Buu absorbed Grand Supreme Kai
  • Badass in Distress: Buu kidnapped by Galactic Patrol of Northern Galaxy while sleeping. They intended to extract Daikaioshin from Buu, which could not end well unless they also had containment for whatever Buu became when Buu woke up.

  • Bizarre Sexual Dimorphism: All sons of majin race look like me. All daughters look like Buuby. Sons and daughters both look like Small Buu when powered up.
  • Blood Knight: Fighting is fun.
  • Book Dumb: Buu get no schooling. Super Buu absorb Gohan, aspiring scholar, but me not keep his knowledge. Buu train with team Beerus to play with team Champa from Universe Six, but Buu no pass written test so Buu not get to fight. Anime nicer to Buu, where me simply fall asleep, Buu had been on 2 hour forty five minute trip through space and Buu was sleep when Bibidi did that so me get tired. Manga not so nice, as me failed for spelling name wrong! Me never asked to spell name before! Buu learned to read though and has read many books. Buu might pass next test!
  • Breaking the Fourth Wall
    • After building house out of transformed people, me give paying Dragon Ball audience a tour!

Still, Buu stay and fight because Buu stronger than Vegeta, who run scared of gag manga!

  • Can't Catch Up:
    • Nekomajin only path following Dragon Ball manga where Buu stay ahead of Vegeta, and Buu still behind Goku there, maybe.

He see he talk too much for someone so weak! But Dragon Ball GT see Vegeta get stronger than Buu when invaded by Bebi parasite and even Buu and Uub as one can't beat them! We come up with plan that Bebi Vegeta fall for as shiny dog monkey but it only slow them down, we still no win. Majuub better than all saiyans not Goku though, until Vegeta leave us behind again with machine that give him red fur and tail like Goku.
    • On another road Beerus, Buu no like him, but Vegeta no like him more! Vegeta passes by Buu in power by getting angry with Beerus! Vegeta surpass me and Gohan, both beaten at once by Beerus, by being like us!
    • Almost all fight since Beerus go wrong for Buu! Dragon Balls bring back funny feet. Funny feet destroy Earth! Buu sleep through it! Goku want Buu for match with sixth universe! Buu miss it because Buu sleep...or Buu can't spell name, take pick. Blue man making stage for strong guys entertaining purple king! Buu ready, Buu training, Buu starting to catch up with Goku! Buu sleep, Buu miss tournament of power, Buu fall further behind. Vegeta make it to everything but exhibition with dog trio.
    • Grand Supreme Kai gave up big power to strip planet eater Moro of his magic. As Moro's magic comes back, Grand Supreme Kai's power comes back, and Buu can get stronger...but Buu have to give Grand Supreme Kai control of Buu's body. Still not caught up to Vegeta but Buu getting there!

    • Buu got beat up bad by Evil Buu and Beerus though.
  • Detachment Combat: Better at it when part of Super Buu, me admit. Even Piccolo, too part of Super Buu, learning to do things me not tried yet since Super Buu gone. But me remember time me pull out guts and threw them so that they wrap around flying away Vegeta. He no fly away no more, no able to move and me beat beat beat!

  • Healing Hands: Buu heal bad wounds, and fix broken eyes! Buu regrow your limbs. You in many pieces? Buu put you back together.
  • Heavy Sleeper: Before Bibidi, Buu mostly sleep. Sleep for eons and eons, wake up, break things, go back to sleep. Buu can get full day's rest from five seconds of sleep, so Buu can keep playing, but long sleep will come after awhile, whether Buu like it or not.

  • Humanoid Abomination: Buu shaped like man and has taken many aspects of man and god but is not even sure what Buu is. Buu is separate from hierarchy of oni, angels, gods and demons, from after life and shadow world. Buu seems to be aberration in living universe, and that may even be wrong.
  • Immune to Bullets: Like Goku, Buu body get soft where Buu relax ki. Really, Buu body softer than Goku's, all things being equal, but Buu can get away with being relaxed more than he. As long as Buu have ki in reserve Buu can reform from being vaporized, so long as there is Buu left in vapor!
  • Immune to Mind Control: Bibidi can't control Buu! Babadi can't control Buu! Bebi can't control Buu! Demigra can control me immune to most mind control.

  • Just Toying with Them: Me and Satan went on trip to world of void, a place previously devoid of time, space or matter, to meet friends from other universes me miss last time.

But then dog guy hurt Satan, so Buu beat him really bad. Buu hit dog like man with Buu strongest attack! He only live because of drug!
  • Kill the God: Once there were five Daikai, but now there only one. Once there were four kaioshin, but we only know of two now. Me kill at least seven gods! Wait, me should say Small Buu killed them. One kaioshin was not killed, he absorbed into Small Buu with Daikaioshin, making me!
  • Literal Split Personality: Buu really want to hurt bad man, but Buu want to stay friends with Mr. Satan. Part of Buu that want to kill come out as skinny Bad Buu and kill bad man.

  • Mars Wants Chocolate: Buu make you into cake unless you give Buu cake!

  • Mind over Matter: East Supreme Kai try it on Buu but me too strong. Then Buu do it back, but better! Buu lift millions of people and gather them together in the air, because Babadi want first demonstration to be clean kill. Buu more nicely switch numbers in budokai so Goku and Uub can play first.
  • Monster Progenitor: Vegeta say Buu will spawn more monsters as long as Buu alive. Satan say he take responsibility, Goku say he train, so me never be able to beat him. And me did it again! Just like with Bad Buu, Mr. Satan caused Buu's feelings to swell up and leave as another Buu. But this time, me do it on purpose, this time not me feeling anger towards bad man but curiosity about love. Loving wife! Me want love, me want family, because me read book about it Satan had he call Bob & Margaret. Buuby not monster...okay... not bad monster like Vegeta think, maybe good monster, she strong class trainer Time Patrol like to visit. Buu love Buuby and we make lots of babies they call majin race.
  • Morality Chain: Me might forget some...details of me promise to be good if not for Satan always being around to remind me. Me not kill Bad Man at first because Satan beat him and bad Man's friend up for Buu!
  • Morality Pet: Buu not be good until puppy no run from Buu. Buu learn puppy no able to walk so Buu fix leg but puppy still no run away. Puppy chase Buu to lick Buu face.

  • Not So Different: Beerus like to eat, Beerus spend long time asleep. Beerus cause petty destruction. Beerus like to fight strong guys. Beerus has purple Battle Aura. Beerus much like Buu, and Buu hate him!
  • Obliviously Evil: Me not like Babadi much, Bibidi little better. But they was all Buu talked too and kill and break was all Buu hear so me not think it wrong.
  • Older Is Better: Buu strong! Buuby strong. Children weaker and their children weaker than them. Younger Buus of majin race get stronger with training and wishes on Dragon Balls. Turn into Small Buus like one East Kaioshin said was older than me, Big Buu. And Small Buu was stronger than me until me train hard.
  • Our Genies Are Different: Old English manga called Buu Djinn. Djinn can be Majin but Majin not always Djinn.
  • Our Demons Are Different: Ma mean bad and Jin mean people, because Buu become Buu through badness in people. But Buu not like Dabura, king of shadow world, flip side of Buu's world. No like Piccolo, who they call Ma Jr. Majin Buu also read as magical man, which is Buu is.

Still strong enough to beat slacker Gohan, Babadi magic Vegeta and before white room training Gotenks! But no kill them, only kill Dabura, dumb Vegeta kill self! Then things get strange. Me become Super Buu, who can't hurt Satan or Bee, but only wait a little to hurt Satan's daughter, Videl. Then me end up in Small Buu, and keep Small Buu from hurting Satan until he spit me out. Majuub want to beat Satan and become champion of the world, but me not let him.
  • Rubber Man: Goku turn super saiyan 3 and Buu not able to hit him, so Buu trick him with stretchy arm.
  • Sealed Evil in a Can: Bibidi trap Small Buu and me inside ball that force us to sleep, then drop us on planet he want us to kill on. Babadi think Buu will serve him as master with threat of ball, so Babadi not so smart.
  • Shadow Archetype: Goku not very good at school, just like Buu. Goku likes fighting, just like Buu. Goku have big appetite, just like Buu. Goku once turn into stronger murder monster by accident, just like Buu. Buu remind people of Sun Wukong, just like Goku, but Goku turn out more like orphan snake boy, red cape man and future fighter mom, Buu went more like boss flea.

  • Split-Personality Merge: Me try to eat Bad Buu but Me get eaten instead. Me live through being candy, me live through being chewed up, but Bad Buu get stronger with me in him. Bad Buu change. He say he Super Buu! Not last, me get pulled out of Super Buu and Bad Buu not come back. Small Buu alternate timeline next life Small Buu, as more good Uub, rejoin with me. He, we, called Majuub.

  • The Load: Majin Buu one of Earth's strongest, one of Universe 7's strongest, and me also one of the least dependable. Buu eat and sleep a lot, miss many a crisis because of it.
  • The Snack Is More Interesting: Abo and Kado fly to Earth to fight. But they not strong, so Buu stay inside and eat.
  • Third-Person Person: Old English manga translation and Super Sonic Warriors video game give Buu better grasp of personal pronouns, but video game not consistent. Buu usually call himself Buu! In Japanese, Buu sometimes have problems with pronouns that refer to other people!
  • Throwing the Fight: Buu beat all martial artists who come to Budokai, then take dive so Satan remain world champion. Satan get money and Buu get eat! Me tell Majuub do same.
  • To Serve Man: Buu serve himself cities worth of man, but then Buu learn people's food better than people food.
