Mystic Ball Attack (ミスティックボールアタック Misutikku Bōru Atakku) is a Rush Attack used by Super Buu and Kid Buu.


The user curls himself up in a ball, and launches himself at his opponent, knocking them away. Then, he flies away and charges back to knock into the opponent several times. Finally, the user flies high up into the air and charges downward to knock the opponent into the ground, inflicting a great deal of damage.


Buu as a ball

Super Buu first used this attack during his battle with Gotenks in his Super Saiyan 3 form. When fighting Gotenks on Earth, Super Buu caught and blasted Gotenks straight up into the air, destroying half of The Lookout (which left Piccolo greatly shocked and upset). Super Buu flew up at the partly destroyed Lookout and attacked Gotenks and Piccolo with the Mystic Ball Attack, destroying the entire Lookout in the process. Gotenks eventually caught the attacking Super Buu with his Charging Ultra Buu Buu Volleyball, transforming Super Buu into a volleyball and smacking him down into the Earth.

Super Buu later used this attack during his battle against Potential Unleashed Gohan. When Super Buu fired his Ill Flash at Gohan, the Saiyan easily deflected it, allowing Super Buu to attack Gohan with the Mystic Ball Attack. However, Gohan managed to catch Super Buu, only to be driven into a mountain.

Kid Buu uses the Mystical Ball Attack against Goku

Kid Buu used this attack during his battle with Goku in his Super Saiyan 3 form on Sacred World of the Kai. After Goku knocked down Kid Buu with a double-axe handle punch, Kid Buu wrapped himself in a ball and attacked Goku with the Mystic Ball Attack, hitting the Saiyan point-blank in the face. Goku flew away from the pursuing Kid Buu and lured him onto the ground before getting out of the way, crashing the Majin deep into the ground.

Kid Buu can also use a one-armed version of the Mystic Ball Attack. Kid Buu tears off his arm and forms it into a ball. Then, he launches the arm ball at the opponent, knocking them away. Finally, Kid Buu directs the arm ball to knock into the opponent several times with telekinesis. He used this attack while fighting against the Good Buu, battering him around.
