"No! No, that can't be meant for us! That's way too much energy; it's enough to blow up the planet ten times!"

Planet Burst (プラネットバースト Puranetto Bāsuto)[13][14][15][16][17][18] is Kid Buu's most powerful technique. It is referred to as his "Earth-Destroying Single Blow" (地球崩壊の一撃 Chikyū Hōkai no Ichigeki) in official books.

Kid Buu throws his Planet Burst

First, Kid Buu raises one hand in the air and gathers his energy in the form of a giant, bright-pink energy sphere. Once it is ready, he launches the energy sphere at the opponent, inflicting a huge amount of damage. Goku notes that in its first use, it is strong enough to blow the Earth up at least ten times (in the Funimation dub) and that he and Vegeta combined cannot stop it. Its strength is such that weaker ki attacks used in an attempt to halt the Planet Burst are simply drawn into it and absorbed to empower it further.


Kid Buu uses this attack to destroy the Earth after his previous attack is deflected by Vegeta's Final Burst Cannon. He also uses it to destroy other planets to track down Goku and Vegeta and uses miniature versions during his battle with Super Saiyan 2 Goku on the Sacred World of the Kai.
