"You fool! I'm Majin Buu!"
Evil Buu is the manifestation of the evil side of Majin Buu in physical form. He possesses the bulk of Majin Buu’s power, a result of Buu's anger becoming more than he could resist until he expelled it as Evil Buu. This explains why his reaction to the shooting of Mr. Satan was so despicable, and even appalled the fat Majin Buu.
The pure evil Majin Buu is the polar opposite of the "good" Majin Buu in all aspects, with his incredibly thin body, and gravelly manner of speech compared to the Good Buu who is incredibly fat.
In the anime, colored manga, and video games, Evil Buu has drab grey flesh, white eyes, and wears a dark blue cape. The artwork for Dragon Ball Heroes cards depict him with red eyes and wearing a purple cape, and Daizenshuu art and the Collectible Card Game also depict him with pink flesh.
Out of Buu's four main forms, Evil Buu is potentially the most intelligent. Evil Buu is the only Buu form to refer to himself with correct grammar (without the absorption of Piccolo). He says "I'm Majin Buu" instead of "Me Majin Buu" or simply "Buu" like the other forms.
Evil Buu appears to operate on a stern, no-nonsense approach to matters. He wastes no time in eliminating the crazed gunman Van Zant and does it without hesitation or mercy. During his fight with Good Buu, Evil Buu maintains a cool and quiet demeanor, refraining from any form of taunting or boasting. After his fight with Good Buu, who had been turned into chocolate, Evil Buu eats the chocolate Good Buu, re-fusing them together, and subsequently triggering his transformation into Super Buu. During this transformation, Evil Buu smiles and laughs maniacally.
As the physical manifestation of Majin Buu's evil side, Evil Buu is a being of pure evil, without an ounce good within himself.
Dragon Ball Z
Main article: Fusion Saga
Once he emerges from the puff of smoke in the air after Buu expelled his inner evil, Evil Buu immediately proceeds to mercilessly eliminate Van Zant in the mountains. He then battles against Good Buu, with the evil incarnation quickly gaining the upper hand. Good Buu is unable to land a hit and is pummeled thoroughly. After dominating the battle, he consumes Good Buu after reflecting an attack meant to turn him into chocolate. Evil Buu then eats the chocolate Good Buu, causing them to re-fuse. Evil Buu laughs as pink smoke is expelled from his body, surrounding him and obscuring the transformation. As a result of this re-fusion, Buu’s evil becomes dominant and is now on the outside instead of the inside, resulting in the creation of Super Buu.

- Part 6
During the Tournament of Time in Age 780 after Super Saiyan 3 Shallot defeats Innocent Buu, the Majin splits into Good Buu and Evil Buu. Evil Buu searches for his good counterpart, destroying the Capitol in the process. Teen Gohan, Adult Gohan, & Cabba do their best to hold off Evil Buu, while Shallot is busy fighting his twin brother Giblet. The three Saiyans survive their battle with Evil Buu, who manages to find Good Buu after he regenerates, wanting revenge on Shallot for defeating his innocent form. Good Buu asks who Evil Buu is and he refers to himself as Majin Buu, which Good Buu refutes and tries to turn him into candy, but Evil Buu empowered by Dark Ki blows the attack back at Good Buu turning him into a Good Buu-shaped chocolate which Evil Buu consumes absorbing him and transforming into Super Buu who reveals he is under the influence of the Dark Ki and swears his revenge on Shallot.
It is implied that Evil Buu under the effects of the Mastermind's Dark Ki, triggered the fission in order to absorb his good counterpart (who is still antagonistic towards Shallot due to Innocent Buu's defeat) and become Super Buu to become stronger in order to defeat Shallot.
- Manga and Anime
It is stated that as the embodiment of Buu's concentrated wrath, Evil Buu is stronger than Good Buu (in his initial appearance), who only possess sweetness and not the power of rage. When Innocent Buu split the majority of the power went to Evil Buu. Thanks to this, Evil Buu easily defeats Good Buu with just a few blows, and then manages to blow back his Chocolate Beam with his breath alone.
- Flight – The ability to fly with the use of ki.
- Ki Blast – The most basic form of energy wave.
- Beatdown – A heavy punch to the face used against Good Buu. Named in the Dragon Ball Z Collectible Card Game.
- Continuous Energy Bullets – Only used in the anime, during his fight against Good Buu.

- Super Kamehameha – Evil Buu uses the Super Kamehameha during his fight against Majin Buu in the anime. He also uses it in video games, where it has a pink/white color.
- Super Breath – Evil Buu used Majin Buu's Super Breath to counter the Transfiguration Beam onto Majin Buu himself before absorbing him and transforming into Super Buu. Named Mystic Breath in the Budokai Tenkaichi series. In Dragon Ball Legends, Majin Buu: Evil uses it to counter Good Buu's Transfiguration Beam after Evil Buu initiated Innocent Buu's fission following his defeat by Super Saiyan 3 Shallot due to the influence of the Dark Ki.
- Flame Shower Breath – A more powerful version of the Super Breath. It was created for the video games, and it is displayed as white in the Budokai Tenkaichi series. Upon contact with an eventual opponent, the flame creates an explosion.
- Super Explosive Wave – An attack also only used in the video games. To perform it, Evil Buu crosses his arms over his chest at crouches slightly. Then an electric aura will surround him and, after a few seconds, he unleashes all his energy at once by spreading his arms and legs out, thus creating a destructive, pink energy wave around himself that obliterates anything in its path. Evil Buu might use it as a shield from incoming fire, or for destroying his opponents.
- Antenna Beam – An attack fired from the antenna on his head, displaying a pink electrifying beam that, upon impact, paralyzes the opponent for a short amount of time. Evil Buu uses this in the Budokai Tenkaichi series.
- Poison - In Dragon Ball Legends, Majin Buu: Evil has a Strike (Poison) Arts Card which allows him (and his teammates) to inflict Poison status on enemies hit whenever said card is used to perform a Strike Arts.
- Fission - In Dragon Ball Legends, it is the evil within Innocent Buu that initiates his fission due to the effects of the Mastermind's Dark Ki.
- Super Buu
Main article: Super Buu Super Buu (超ブウ Chō Bū), also called Majin Buu (Evil) (魔人ブウ （悪） Majin Bū (Aku)), is the result of Evil Buu absorbing Good Buu. This form specializes in absorbing enemy combatants, such as several of the Dragon Team, which results in a massive power increase for Super Buu. However the absorption of Good Buu causes his manner of speech to revert as a side effect of the absorption (as he gains Good Buu's manner of speaking) though it improves as Super Buu absorbs others along with his intelligence and personality traits.
It should be noted that Super Buu is essentially the reverse of Innocent Buu, as his evil traits (embodied by Evil Buu) are dominate in Super Buu, while in Innocent Buu the goodness of Grand Supreme Kai (embodied by Good Buu) is dominate.
- Dark Ki
Main article: Dark KiIn Dragon Ball Legends, the Evil within Innocent Buu was brainwashed by the Mastermind which triggered Innocent Buu's fission following his defeat by Super Saiyan 3 Shallot. Under the influence of the Mastermind he destroyed the Capitol while searching for Good Buu, whom he eventually found and absorbed, allowing him to transform into Super Buu. His power was enough to easily defeat Adult Gohan, Young Future Trunks and Cabba combined power.

- Evil Buu vs. Good Buu
- Evil Buu's voice is high-pitched in Dragon Ball Z: Budokai Tenkaichi; this is fixed later on. However, he still only yells and grunts in the Budokai Tenkaichi series despite being able to speak in the series.
- On a side note, in the remastered release of the Fusion saga, the vocal effect to make his voice sound deeper was removed.
- Theoretically, Evil Buu and Kid Buu are the same being, as Kid Buu represents the pure Evil Buu (without Piccolo, Gotenks, Gohan, and the fat Majin Buu/Supreme Kais).
- He is the only form of Buu not to display any stretching of his body parts in the manga/anime; however, he has this ability in video games. Also, while still having a pink aura, Evil Buu is the only incarnation of Buu to usually not have pink skin.
- Evil Buu is also the only form of Buu to never be seen using the Transfiguration Beam. However, as Evil Buu is Majin Buu (he is the evil half of Innocent Buu embodied in physical form), it is very likely Evil Buu can perform the Transfiguration Beam as well.
- An image depicting the Organization of Babidi in Daizenshuu 4 shows an alternately colored version of Evil Buu with pink skin and red eyes, the same color as the other Buus on that image. The other pictures in that specific section of the Daizenshuu are all colored in pink/red and black and white tones, including members of the Ginyu Force.
- Evil Buu is also depicted with pink skin in the Dragon Ball Collectible Card Game.
- Along with his good counterpart, Evil Buu is one of the first Majins known to have been created via fission. In Dragon Ball Online, it is revealed that Good Buu himself would later use fission to create a female companion named Miss Buu whom along Good Buu (who became Mr. Buu), went on to become the preverbal Adam and Eve of the Majin race. In Xenoverse 2, in an alternate timeline Majin Buu creates the Majin family via fission instead. However, these fissions are not evil due to Good Buu's pure heart.
- In Dragon Ball Z: Budokai Tenkaichi 3, the Devilmite Beam inflicts more damage to Evil Buu than any other version of Buu. This implies that Evil Buu is indeed the most evil of the Buus.
