Episode 206 "The King of Demons"

The Summary

The episode starts with Babidi and Dabura laughing while contemplating about killing more humans. Kibito then tells the Z-fighters about Babidi's evil games. Babidi uses a being's power until he has no more use of that person, and then he destroys them as if they were a sick animal. Babidi tells Dabura that the Z-fighters are hiding behind the cliff, so they start making a plan to lure them into the ship to steal their energy.

The music at this point is really becoming definite and adds to the dire situation.

Babidi tells Dabura to dispose of the weak fighters, which will only aggravate the others. One of his henchmen named, Pui Pui, goes back into the ship, leaving Dabura alone with the rest of the unaware fighters. Vegeta soon realizes that Dabura knows they are there, and without a pause, Dabura appears in front of Kibito. Dabura puts his hand in Kibito's face and blasts him into a void. The Supreme Kai and Goku yell out in horror. Goku flies up to attack with a punch to Dabura's face but Dabura easily dodges it. Vegeta tries the same, but he is also not successful.

Dabura looks for a weaker fighter, and he finds Krillin. He spits on him, and Krillin tries to get it off as he starts to feel something. Piccolo sees this as an attack and he flies straight in at Dabura, but he receives Dabura's spit as well. Piccolo and Krillin are instantly turned to stone by Dabura's spit. The Supreme Kai tells Goku and the remaining Z warriors that the only way to bring them back to normalcy is to kill Dabura.

Then the scene switches back to the tournament, and we see the crowd getting restless, waiting for the next fight.

Then Goku and Gohan fly off towards the ship, and the Supreme Kai tells them that it is a trap and how it's safer to stay outside. Of course, Goku, Gohan, and Vegeta go anyways disobeying his request. However, Shin soon follows after them anyways. Right after, he lands, the door leading to the entrance seals shut. The Kai tells them that the only way to get out of Babidi's ship is to beat Babidi, himself. Vegeta comments that he will solve all their problems by blowing up the ship. The Supreme Kai stops him from doing so by reminding him that any outside stimulation might set Buu free.

We the see Pui Pui show up at the door on the side of the room. Pui Pui starts telling the Z-fighters about the stages or floors of the ship. Babidi and Buu rest on the bottom stage, while they are on the highest stage, Stage 1. He tells them that they won't be able to ever see past Stage 1 because he won't let them pass. As this is happening, Babidi places the energy device with Gohan's power, into Buu's magic ball, and the gauge tells them that it is half full. Babidi is surprised that one shot was half the energy they needed and starts to think that Spopovitch and Yamu must have collected energy from hundreds of people in a such short amount of time. He somewhat regrets the fact that he destroyed them because it was such an efficient way of gathering the energy.

Babidi and Dabura go to his viewing orb to get a view of Goku, Gohan, and Vegeta playing a rock, paper, scissors game to decide which one gets to fight Pui Pui. The Supreme Kai is amazed at how much the fighters are underestimating Pui Pui and Babidi's power. Nonetheless, after a few games, Vegeta emerges as the victor. The Kai is very surprised and worried that Vegeta intends to fight Pui all by himself. Pui laughs at Vegeta's ignorance and tells them that any energy they lose will be channeled directly to Buu. Vegeta responds by saying that's unfortunate for Buu because he won't be getting any energy from him.

"Welcome to the end of your life, and I promise it's going to hurt."-Vegeta.

Thus the episode ends as soon as the fight between Vegeta and Pui Pui begin on Stage 1.

The Review


Today's animation was very fluid and it is obviously more refined than it used to be. The fighters including, Vegeta and Pui Pui were drawn with excruciating detail.

Example: The beefy look of Vegeta's arm when shown in a side view-OR-the wider, more aggressive approach to the way his head looks.

I suppose if you want this to be nit-picky, then the tournament audience looked very bland. They didn't even move when the camera's view panned over them to focus on Goten and Trunks, disguised as Mighty Mask.

I don't know. I suppose that the entire episode was ok, but some things really should have, and could have been more detailed. Buu's magic egg was the biggest problem. What was that? -A big purple blob with some vein-looking crevices on it. This is supposed to turn into the strongest thing ever. Shouldn't it at least be scary?



The music was actually audible today. I don't quite get that. One episode it's loud and blasting and the next, you hardly even recognize it. I suppose though, that it shouldn't be in some episodes that involve a lot of talking and slow-paced action.

The point where Babidi and Dabura are contemplating about luring the fighters into the ship displayed better tunes than the ones of recent.

I guess my philosophy has been and will continue to be: "If you have music, then make sure you can notice it; if not, then why bother?"


I liked the screenplay today. As The Celestrian wrote yesterday, good animation means good choreography. That statement holds true for the entirety of today's show.

Example: The way Babidi and Dabura saw the Z-fighters playing rock, paper, scissors was hilarious. They weren't sure if they were insulting them or just oblivious to what they were up against. The whole sequence just showed a very subtle humor, which I very much enjoyed. The concept of the most powerful wizard ever being mocked, in a sense, by three imbeciles, seemed out of the ordinary.

If not for the direction of the events, then for the conversational material, there was plenty to go around for everybody.

Babidi's voice is just so eerie. He's the almighty master of magical power, yet has the pitch of a three-year-old girl. I'm still not sure if I like that, but it probably just grows on you.


I suppose the plot was pretty good. Babidi has desires of world and universal destruction, Majin Buu is one step closer to being awakened, and the three fighters make their way down to Babidi as they fight on each level.

I didn't like how the introduction to the fight between Pui Pui and Vegeta was delayed so long. They kept on talking and talking and talking. And after they were done with that, they talked some more. Honestly, both keep trying to intimidate one another before they actually got to it. I really wanted to see the start of the battle.

Oh well! I guess tomorrow will do.

The Existence's Bottom Line:
A mediocre approach to the true introduction of Dabura and Pui Pui. There's almost no action at all, just surprising moments. That's all.

The Existence gives today's episode:

4 Dragonballs out of 7...
