Pure Evil Wiki

What a wonderful day this is! Though I fully intend on ripping you into pieces, allow me to first say 'Thank You'! After all, if it weren't for all those incredibly strong fighters you brought me, I wouldn't have been able to bring Majin Buu back to life!
~ Babidi.

Babidi is a major antagonist in Dragon Ball Z and Dragon Ball Z Kai, appearing as main antagonist of the Babidi saga and the secondary antagonist of the Majin Buu saga.

He is an alien wizard and the son of the wizard Bibidi, who awakened Majin Buu. He has the power to control anyone who has even a trace of evil inside them. His henchmen include Dabura, Pui Pui, Yakon, Yamu, Spopovich, several unnamed Zoonian soldiers and Vegeta (briefly). His actions resulted in trillions of deaths across Universe 7.

He was voiced by the late Joji Yanami and (currently) Bin Shimada in the original Japanese version. In the English dub, he is voiced by Terry Klassen, Duncan Brannan and Bill Townsley across various appearances.

What Makes Him Pure Evil?

  • Revived Majin Buu, which makes him responsible for the sheer amount of death and destruction that occurs later on.
  • Took enjoyment in having Buu kill the people of Earth and destroy entire cities, all with the intention of luring Piccolo, Goten and Trunks out of hiding so he could have his revenge on them.
  • Kills his brainwashed henchmen Spopovich and Yamu (who completed their mission and surpassed Babidi's expectations) after they were of no further use to him.
  • Has Buu kill Dabura, his loyal right-hand man, because he was no longer useful to him. And while he applauds him for doing his job well, it was only to encourage Buu to continue killing.
  • Turns Vegeta into Majin Vegeta, leading to hundreds of deaths at Vegeta's hands.
  • Made the head of someone who gave him the names of Piccolo, Goten and Trunks explode because he found the information to be useless.
    • Despite giving him the information he was looking for, Babidi also threatened to kill Idasam (Idasa and Ikose's mother) simply because he found her voice irritating.
  • When asked by Goku to stop killing people, Babidi declares that he will have more people killed just to spite him.
  • Constantly insults and threatens to reseal Buu whenever he doesn't obey him.
  • Intended to move on to other planets after he was done with Earth and have Buu kill those planets' entire populations as well.
  • While he has a few comedic moments, his actions are still played completely seriously.
  • While he is cheering Goku on in his fight against Kid Buu, it's only because he wants to see Buu suffer for betraying and murdering him.
