Babidi (バビディ; Viz "Bobbidi") is an extraterrestrial mage, and one of the doppelgängers of the wizard Bibidi.[3] Proclaiming himself the wizard's son, Babidi scoured the universe for the creature Majin Boo, believing it to be his original's creation, with the intention of unsealing it to lay waste to the universe. Eventually, he succeeded, reviving Majin Boo, an act that ironically led to his own demise.[4]


Babidi is one of Bibidi's many dopplegänger's — body doubles that the mage would create when a task required more than a single person. Babidi was an existing dopplegänger when Bibidi died, and the only remaining dopplegänger alive to inherit Bibidi's vast magical powers.[3] Babidi would eventually force Dabra to submit to his magical abilities and serve as his henchman, in addition to recruiting a multitude of other powerful fighters from throughout the universe to serve as his forces in a bid to revive the terror, Majin Boo.





While physically weak, lacking strength or even the ability to utilize ki, Babidi was frighteningly powerful in terms of the magical arts. His skills were such that he was able to cause even Shin to view him as a threat, and while other mages exist throughout the vast Universe, Babidi's own magical power is outstandingly strong by comparison.[3]

Creation & Conception


  • Babidi's name is a pun on the magic phrase from the movie Cinderella, "Bibbidi Bobbidi Boo". His original, Bibidi, and the creature Majin Boo, all derive their names from different portions of this phrase.
    • In the VIZ English localization of the manga, his name is spelled "Bobbidi", to be more in line with the phrase his name originates from. Similar changes were made to Bibidi, Majin Boo, and Dabra.
