After seeing Majin Buu back in the game after that awesome fight during the Omni-King’s exhibition matches, a lot of fans were excited that our favorite pink blob was still capable of pulling off a victory!
The problem is that a lot of fans have been scratching their heads about how powerful Buu really is.
Something we have to remember is that Fat Buu was the ‘original Buu’ that we saw in the series after he came out of his ball.
Honestly we never see Fat Buu’s full power before splitting into his good and evil counterparts. Remember that many characters like Piccolo and the Supreme Kai mentioned that Buu’s power was growing and growing.
After being held in captivity for so long in that ball, Buu’s power was compressed. The longer he was out of the ball, the more his power grew. It only makes sense after being in that ball for 1,000s of years!
Goku pointed out during his battle with Majin Buu that no matter how much ki he put out as a Super Saiyan 3, Buu’s was going as well to match the Saiyan.
When he first hatched, Gohan mentioned that his trying to sense Buu’s ki was like reaching into a bottomless pit. Buu would only show a hint of his true power when he was being serious or mad about something. An example of this is when Buu effortlessly gauged out Dabura’s eyes and kicked him into a mountain. Then he went back to his playful demeanor.
Eventually, Buu split into Good Buu and Evil Buu. It was clear that the Good Buu did not even get 50% of Fat Buu’s power considering how easily Evil Buu was making sport of him.
Overall, I estimate Good Buu to be around 40%-45% of what he was as Fat Buu.
In this video, I go into even more detail about how powerful Good Buu is, and where I would rank him in terms of power:
What do you think about Buu’s power?
Do you think he will get even stronger as the series goes on, or will his anger be the key for him fighting at his maximum? You never know, we might get some new transformations (even though we see Good Buu as himself at the end of Z)!
