Main article: Baby Saga
The original Tuffle parasite is Baby, who was created on Planet Plant from the DNA of the Tuffle King. After being completed by his Machine Mutant creation Dr. Myuu on planet M-2, Baby attempts to infect everyone on Earth with other Tuffle parasites he spawned inside the Earthlings in order to recreate the Tuffle race. All of the Tuffle parasites (other than Baby) are destroyed when Kibito Kai releases the Sacred Water over the Earth, and Baby is killed when Super Saiyan 4 Goku propels both him and his spaceship into the Sun with a 10x Kamehameha.

Infected Pan and Infected Trunks join Super Baby Vegeta 2 in confronting Super Saiyan 4 Goku and his Time Patrol allies, but Goku is soon defeated due to Infected Pan and Infected Trunks sending their ki to Baby. Goku's Time Patrol allies discover Baby is practically invincible as long as Pan and Trunks are giving him energy.
