Puipui

From Dragon Ball Encyclopedia, the ''Dragon Ball'' wiki

"Welcome... to my home planet! I've won many great battles here, and by now, you've noticed that my planet is very different from yours. It's the gravity. Ten times stronger than Earth! Your hopes of winning are falling faster than that stone! You won't leave here alive!"
Puipui in "Vegeta Attacks"

Puipui (プイプイ, Puipui; FUNimation "Pui Pui", Viz "Pocus") is a member of Babidi's Force.

Appearance[edit]

Puipui's head resembles that of Appule and, to a certain extent, Third Form Freeza. He wears a black jumpsuit with a white armored chest-plate covering most of his torso. This chest plate has two protruding spikes on the back. He also wears a matching helmet, but his cranial structure is never shown. Many of the Majin Grunts wear the same white armor as that of Puipui.

Biography[edit]

Manga[edit]

He is named Pocus (based on the word Hocus-Pocus) in the English manga.

Babidi Saga[edit]

Puipui fighting against Vegeta.

Puipui first appeared seen after Yamu and Spopovich had returned from collecting energy. After giving the energy to Babidi, the two were then declared useless by Babidi. After Babidi mutilated Spopovich by using Telepathy to make the warrior explode from the inside out, Puipui sadistically killed Yamu when the warrior tried to escape.

During the fight on Babidi's Spaceship, Vegeta won a rock-paper-scissors match against Son Gohan and Son Goku in order to be the first to fight. Vegeta's first opponent was none other than Puipui. After a short, cocky monologue, Puipui attacked Vegeta head on. The Saiyan prince effortlessly dodged and blocked Puipui's blows, smirking the entire time. However, since Puipui was one of the most powerful beings in his respective galaxy, he was not convinced of Vegeta's overwhelming power. As Puipui continued to attack Vegeta, he was repeatedly knocked down and pounded on. In order to give Puipui the advantage, Dabura suggested to Babidi that the fight be transported to Puipui's homeworld, Planet Voon.

Once there, Puipui exclaimed that he had a great advantage now because Planet Voon had a gravity that was 10 times higher than that of Planet Earth. Vegeta had trained under 500 times Earth's normal gravity, however, and this resulted in Vegeta's indifference to the gravity change. Shocked, Puipui believed Vegeta's training history was a bluff and foolishly attacked him. Vegeta relentlessly pummeled Puipui once again. Out of desperation and anger, Puipui could not admit defeat and attacked yet again. However, this time around, Vegeta obliterated him without any effort with a large energy blast directed at Puipui's chest.

Puipui made a cameo appearance in "A Dangerous Union" as he escaped from Hell, however, he was quickly killed by Son Goten. In what was most likely an animation error, he still wore the 'M' crest on his body in these scenes.

Video games[edit]

Puipui is a boss character in Dragon Ball Z: Buu's Fury

Puipui makes a non-playable appearance in Dragon Ball Z: Budokai Tenkaichi 3 as one of Babidi's attacks, the Pui Pui Nice Shot. Babidi kicks the enemy up into the air and then summons Puipui, who unleashes a powerful energy ball at the enemy. Babidi then says, "Nice shot."
