Wizard Barrier (バリヤーの魔術 Baria no Majutsu[2]) is a Energy Shield used by Babidi.


With both hands in front of him, Babidi shouts the word "barrier" to make a circular barrier appear and surround his body.[2]


Babidi uses the Wizard Barrier to protect himself from Innocent Buu's Angry Explosion.[3] He also uses it to protect himself from Piccolo's attacks, which he succeeds only for a small period of time, after which Piccolo breaks the barrier and cuts Babidi in half with his arm.[4] Babidi uses it again to protect himself from Vegeta's Final Explosion.[5]


Buu using a barrier similar to Babidi's Wizard Barrier

In the anime, Innocent Buu uses a similar barrier, called Protective Bubble,[6] to protect himself when the Earth's Military attacked him.[7]

In Dragon Ball Super, Moro uses this technique to prevent anyone from interfering or escaping in his battle with the Z-Fighters.[8]

Video Game Appearances[]

The Wizard Barrier was named in Dragon Ball Z: Budokai Tenkaichi 3, where it appears as one of Babidi's Blast 1. When Babidi performs this technique, his Crystal Ball flies around him.

In Dragon Ball Xenoverse, the technique is referenced by Babidi's equippable Z-Soul "Papparapah! Barrier!" which has a low chance of activating when damage is received. When activated it reduces Stamina instead of Health and the user will not stagger when taking damage.
