Origin Of Majin Buu

Majin Buu has stayed dormant for over thousands of years. Thousands of years ago, Majin Buu was feared among all the Kai’s, as he was capable of destroying the entire universe. Even when all the powerful Kai joined hands against the monstrosity of Majin Buu, they still were not able to defeat Majin Buu. All they managed to do was seal Majin Buu in his pink ball. But, there is always someone who can’t digest peace. There is always someone who craves death and destruction. In this case, it was Babidi who craved the end of the universe. So, he brought Majin Buu back to life using the power and energy of the Saiyans.
