This was a technique Bibidi would use whenever there was a task that was too difficult for simply a single person to do. He could create more than a single dopplegänger, however, his magical powers would weaken in proportion to the dopplegängers created. If the original is killed, the magical power is dispersed through the created dopplegängers; Babidi, who was the only remaining dopplegänger after Bibidi's death, regained all of the original magical power.[1]


  • This technique has never officially appeared in the anime and manga, only being mentioned in interviews by Akira Toriyama. The product of the technique, however, Babidi, played a major role in the series.
  • This technique is similar to the Fist of Four Bodies used by Tenshinhan, albeit used with magical power rather than ki.
