"Maybe if I read "Bob & Margaret's Forbidden Games," I'd be able to create clones? I wonder what it's about... So excited. I can't wait to see!"
Majin Time Patroller Roim talking about Bob & Margaret's Forbidden Games in Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2

Bob & Margaret is a controversial adult book in the Dragon Ball universe.

Overview

During his Turtle School training Goku was home schooled by Master Roshi who would teach Goku how to read using Bob & Margaret

It is the book that Master Roshi used to teach Goku how to read during the basic education he received as part of his Turtle School training in Age 750. In Age 790, Good Buu finds it in Mr. Satan's library, causing him to long for love. From the book he obtains ideas about female mates and ultimately splits into two Buus once again (as he had done with Evil Buu, though this time as the Male Mr. Buu and the Female Miss Buu), creating the first female Majin, Miss Buu. In the same year, Majin Buu and Miss Buu begin to desire a child like other couples have and read "Bob & Margaret" once again to work out how, by tearing pieces Majin body tissue from various parts of their bodies, mixed them together, and birthed life into the dumpling-shaped pieces by firing a Love-Love Beam into it giving birth to their child Baby Buu and other children. Their family quickly grows, resulting in the creation of the Majin race on Earth.

Mr. Satan finds Majin Buu reading Bob & Margaret's Forbidden Games the Majin race prologue of Xenoverse 2

In Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2, if the player selects Majin as the Future Warrior's race, then an opening cutscene featuring Majin Buu sitting inside his house reading Bob & Margaret before he comes across a word he does not know the meaning of and calls Mr. Satan over to tell him what it is, only for Mr. Satan to realize what Buu is reading and asks Buu where he found it. Buu reveals he had taken it from Mr. Satan's room, causing Mr. Satan to tell Buu he shouldn't be reading it, but Buu doesn't understand why he can't read it and refuses to give it back to Mr. Satan.

"Hmmm... Lovey-dovey...?"
Majin Buu wondering about the word "Lovey-dovey" that he read in Bob & Margaret's Forbidden Games in Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2

If the Future Warrior visits Majin Buu's House before talking to Time Patroller Akkah, they will find Majin Buu still reading Bob & Margaret, only to get stuck on the word "Lovey-dovey". Due to the pale man placing Distorted Time Egg near Majin Buu's House which created the Time Miniature rift, the events that lead to Miss Buu's creation were altered and Good Buu is instead inspired by Mr. Satan's parental relationship with Videl and uses fission to create offspring instead. However as this timeline takes place inside a time rift, it is not considered a part of the official history, thus the official history of how the Majin race came into existence remains the same.

A female Majin Time Patroller named Roim refers to the book as Bob & Margaret's Forbidden Games and wonders if she would be able to create clones if she were to read it.[1] With the exception of those Majins familiar with the Majin Buu's House Time Miniature rift, most Majin Time Patrollers are for the most part ignorant of the role Bob & Margaret played in

Trivia

  • Its name in Xenoverse 2, Bob & Margaret's Forbidden Games may be a reference to the biblical "forbidden fruit" from the Tree of the knowledge of good and evil eaten by Adam & Eve. This would fit with the book's use by Mr. Buu and Miss Buu (the proverbial Adam & Eve of the Majin race) to develop the primary method of Majin reproduction.
  • The fact that Master Roshi used it to teach Goku how to read and that Buu was able to read and understand it in Dragon Ball Online (in Xenoverse 2 he has a little trouble reading the word and is forced to ask Mr. Satan what it is and means), it is presumably not too hard for those of a young or child-like mentality to read and comprehend, despite its adult subject matter.
    • The fact that Master Roshi would use an adult book to teach Goku with fits with the old hermit's preference for Dirty Magazine and other "mature" reading materials.
  • Mr. Satan being the original owner of the copy of Bob & Margaret that gave Good Buu the idea to create Miss Buu and lead to the development of the Love-Love Beam by Mr. Buu and Miss Buu, means that in addition to Mr. Satan's role in Innocent Buu becoming Good Buu, Mr. Satan is also inadvertently responsible for Good Buu's discovery of Bob & Margret and by extension the events that lead to the creation of the Majin race.
    • The Female Majin Time Patroller Nanmai lampshades this fact when she notes that Majin Buu turned good thanks to Mr. Satan, concluding that if it weren't for Mr. Satan, she never would have been born (though she is mainly referring to Mr. Satan's role in Majin Buu becoming Good Buu, as it is unclear if she is fully aware of Bob & Margaret's role in the history of the Majin race).
  • Good Buu being the proverbial Adam of the Majin race is actually quite fitting given his connection to Grand Supreme Kai, one of Universe 7's Gods of Creation.
