Dragon Ball Z Writer Reveals Which Version of Buu Is the Strongest

Dragon Ball Z screenwriter Takao Koyama reveals which version of Majin Buu he believes to be the strongest, and it’s not Kid Buu. Sorry Toriyama.

Dragon Ball Z screenwriter, Takao Koyama, reveals which version of Majin Buu he believes to be the strongest. Based on Akira Toriyama’s Dragon Ball manga series, the immensely popular anime, Dragon Ball Z, has had its fair share of complex and formidable villains—from Raditz and Vegeta to Frieza and Cell. Courtesy of transformations and an ever-evolving power scale, each saga introduced a new and overwhelming adversary for Goku and the Z Fighters.

Following the Cell Saga—which was originally conceived as the end of Dragon Ball Z—the pressure was on Toriyama to create a swan song villain different from anything fans had seen before. Enter Majin Buu, the pink, pudgy, and seemingly innocent life form said to have destroyed entire planets millions of years before being revived by Babidi. At first, the threat of Buu stemmed from his lack of conscience and moral compass. Then, he began to change forms (Evil Buu, Super Buu, etc.) absorb the heroes, and become Dragon Ball Z’s most dangerous character by far.

Takao Koyama, a writer who worked on the anime from 1989 until its end in 1996, recently revealed on Twitter (via DBSChronicles) which version of Majin Buu he believes is the strongest. After being asked the question by a fan, Koyama reaffirmed what many have already assumed. Check out the tweet below:

A common misconception regarding Dragon Ball Z is that Buu’s strongest form is Kid Buu, who was the last and most unrestrained version of the villain to appear in the series. While Kid Buu did destroy Earth and Toriyama did say he was the strongest Buu, it’s important to remember Super Sayian 3 Goku was able to go toe-to-toe with him. That being said, Buu was at the height of his power after absorbing Ultimate Gohan as Super Buu. At the end of the anime, Ultimate, or Mystic Gohan was the strongest Z Fighter, above Goku. Still, Gohan was unable to overpower the hyper-intelligent Super Buu after the villain absorbed Gotenks and Piccolo. When Gohan was absorbed, Goku and Vegeta didn’t stand a chance. Separately. It took the Potara fusion of Goku and Vegeta and the power of Vegito to challenge what is Buu’s strongest form.

Koyama’s admission won’t surprise long-time fans of Dragon Ball Z, those who watched Dragon Ball Super and are patiently awaiting its revival. Ignoring Dragon Ball GT, the Majin Buu (s) has undergone some changes since the defeat of Kid Buu. At the end of Dragon Ball Z, Buu was reincarnated as Uub and the fat, good Buu (who carries the spirit of Grand Supreme Kai) lost a bunch of weight training Dragon Ball Super…before he fell asleep. It’s safe to say Buu’s potential hasn’t been utilized in Dragon Ball Super. It remains to be seen if he or the yet-to-be introduced Uub will become a central figure in the ongoing manga or the upcoming film, Dragon Ball Super: Superhero.
