This is my first FAQ. Ever. Im hoping it won't end up being a short,
useless little faq, so lets hope that i dont run out of things to say
:P. I heard once that about 10 percent of the people who use the
internet contribute to it, and with this faq i would like to be a part
of that 10 percent.

3. Preface 
------------------------------

You may be thinking "what made you choose a DBZ BT2 faq as your first
ever faq?" Well, everyone has to start somewhere, and at my skill level
a LoZ:TP faq is the fevered dream of a madman. I don't really know what
spurred me to make a faq here and now, looking back it's obvious that i
could easily have sat back and lazily done nothing like i have my whole
life, but somehow i ended up writing my very own faq... so to all you
kids out there, dont be afraid to contribute!

Anyway, Im doing a Buu faq because, well, Buu is freakin awesome! Hes
powerful, hes ruthless, and hes a pink polymorphic blob. And everyone
loves a polymorphic blob. EVERYONE. Buu would give kirby a run for his
money, IMO. These reasons and more solidly place Buu at the top of my
favorite character list (along with Goku, but common, who doesnt love
Goku?).

------------------------------
4. Fat Buu
------------------------------

Attack: 280 - 290
Rush: 5 Hits, 2130 - 2220
Throw: 4550 - 4730
Ki: 360 - 380
Ki Rush: 5 Hits, 1800 - 1900
Charged Ki: 1200 - 1250
Kaikosen: 2450
Flame Shower Breath: 10000 - 12230
Chocolate Beam: 9810 - 12030
Angry Explosion: 14400 - 14700

While not the best of the bunch, Fat Buu can certainly hold his own.
His melee attacks deal a fair amount of damage, but he is rather slow.
Feel free to go head on against slower opponents, but youll have to
rely more on your blast2 attacks against faster opponents who can slip
in between your rushes. His Flame Shower Breath is a great move, I
prefer it over beam attacks, and the infamous chocolate beam has a fair
range, so dont be shy about using it. Unfortunately, Fat Buu makes very
poor use of MAX power, as he cannot perform a continuous rush like most
characters, and his UB is little more than a renamed version of the
all-too-common Super Explosive Wave. You will notice that Fat Buu
starts his ki charge process very quickly, almost immediately after you
press the charge button. Most characters go through a little animation
where they flex there muscles and go into a "powering up pose" before
their ki starts to charge. This little bonus gives Buu more time to
charge up after youve sent the enemy flying before he gets back to you,
though unfortunately this is largely wasted on Fat Buu due to his
lackluster support for MAX power mode... Still, most of the time you
should have no trouble readying another blast2 before your opponent has
a chance to disrupt your charging. Also, remember to throw. Fat Buu has
the stongest throw of all the Buus, and indeed one of the strongest in
the game when you factor in its superior grabbing range. Kaikosen is a
nice touch that can help to even the odds against speedy melee based
enemies, but unfortunately his other Blast1, sleep, is essentially
useless, considering that it takes way too long to work, and you are
unlikely to get it to work against anything but the lowest level COM
(if your lucky!)

------------------------------
5. Pure Evil Buu
------------------------------

Attack: 100
Rush: 5 Hits, 1530
Throw: 2420
Ki: 300
Ki Rush: 4 Hits, 1200
Charged Ki: 1000
Kaikosen: 2450
Mystic Breath: 980
Super Kamehameha: 5040 - 13200
Flame Shower Breath: 10000 - 12000
Super Explosive Wave: 15000

This version of Buu is by far the worst, and my least favorite. Of all
the Buus, he has the weakest melee, and the weakest throw. His Super
Kamehameha is essentially useless considering that Flame Shower Breathe
does almost as much damage as a fully charged kamehameha, but without
the charge time and at a cost of 3 ki bars instead of 4. Sure,
kamehameha has better range, but lets face it, anything beyond the
range of flame shower breath makes it too easy to dodge a beam attack.
His UB is again Super Explosive Wave, Slightly stronger that Fat Buus
UB but still not really worth it, although he can perform a continuous
rush in MAx power mode. Both of his Blast1 attacks freeze the opponent,
Mystic breathe only takes 1 blast stock but doesnt last as long as
kaikosen, which costs 2. If you are playing competitively, dont use
this Buu. If you are playing for fun, then go ahead! After all, there
is a strange fun factor in playing with a character that is merely
competent, rather that the best of the best.

------------------------------
6a. Super Buu
------------------------------

Attack: 290
Rush: 5 Hits, 2220
Throw: 4260
Ki: 360
Ki Rush: 6 Hits, 2160
Charged Ki: 6 Hits, 1200
Explosive Wave: 490
Vice Shout: 490
Genocide Blast: ----
Chocolate Beam: 10000 - 12030
Revenge Death Bomber: 20040

Super Buu is an excellent fighter. The only Buu fighter with
transformations. This first form is great, he does fair damage with
melee and ki, and has an extremely versatile set of moves. His throw is
the second best, just less than fat buu, although unfortunately he does
not have a ranged grab, so youll have to be more picky about when you
try to grab the opponent. Explosive wave is a dazzling move, works
great for stopping those annoying rush techniques, and Vice Shout is a
fair binding move that hold the enemy for a fair amount of time.
Genocide Blast is a good move, it can be hard to avoid, though it isnt
likely to do a whole lot of damage since not many of the blasts
actually hit the other person. Chocolate beam is as awesome as ever,
and with more than enough range to it. His UB is once again a let down,
yet another Super Explosive Wave variant, this time with some extra
damage but with the effect of bringing you down to a sliver of health,
so if you dont kill them with it your in big trouble, Which makes this
move even more useless than the normal Super Explosive Wave. Still,
this is a very good Buu.

------------------------------
6b. Super Buu (Gotenks Absorbed)
------------------------------

Attack: 2 Hits, 300
Rush: 6 Hits, 2250
Throw: 3400
Ki: 2 Hits, 360
Ki Rush: 6 Hits, 1080
Charged Ki: 6 Hits, 1500
Explosive Wave: 490
Mystic Breath: 980
Galactic Donut Volley: 10000 - 12000
Special Beam Cannon: 1200 - 15830
Super Kamehameha: 15040

Super Buu's second form. This is the worst version of Super Buu, unless
you are strictly melee. Every single one of his special attacks are
easily dodged if there is any amount of distance between the two
fighters. Special beam cannon will never be usefull, it takes so long
to charge it gives the enemy more than enough time to prepare for it,
or if you release it right away it just barely does more damage than a
charged ki blast. Galactic Donut Volley moves painfully slow, and super
kamehameha will never be a good choice for a UB. Explosive Wave helps,
but for some reason his mystic breath uses up two blast stocks, instead
of the one it used on Pure Evil Buu, and it doesnt seem to stop them
any longer than Pure Evil Buu's version, either. Dont stay in this form
any longer than you have to before you move on to his final form.

------------------------------
6c. Super Buu (Gohan Absorbed)
------------------------------

Attack: 2 Hits, 300 - 320
Rush: 6 Hits, 2270 - 2420
Throw: 3650 - 3860
Ki: 400 - 430
Ki Rush: 6 Hits, 2400 - 2580
Charged Ki: 1710 - 1810
Super Kamehameha: 5040 - 16200
Chocolate Beam: 10000 - 12510
Super Ghost Buu Attack: 21500 - 22350

The final and best form of Super Buu. He does the most damage out of
all the Buus, except with his throw. Afterimage is a wonderful blast1
move, and hi tension isnt bad, although i would rather have explosive
wave or kaikosen. despite my distaste for the inaccuracies of beam
attacks, Super Kamehameha in this case works out just fine, and once
again chocolate beam is back for more, this time with the coolest
looking animation (IMO). Super Ghost Buu Attack marks the first truly
good UB of the Buus, doing excellent damage with a guided attack. The
lack of long range grabs in the Super Buu line was a bit disapointing,
but oh well. If your looking to do some serious butt kicking, this is
the Buu for you! Also, if you don't listen too closely when he starts
to charges up, it kind of sounds like he says "Pickles!". I love
pickles.

------------------------------
7. Kid Buu
------------------------------

Attack: 2 Hits, 200 - 220
Rush: 7 Hits, 1710 - 1810
Throw: 2500 - 2600
Ki: 360 - 380
Ki Rush: 6 Hits, 2160 - 2280
Charged Ki: 1200 - 1250
Super Kamehameha: 5040 - 15300
Mystic Combination: 10040 - 12300
Planet Burst: 16500 - 16860

THE BEST BUU! I love this little guy. He may not do as much damage as
some of the Buus, but he is a speed demon. I urge everyone to focus on
melee with Kid Buu. Super Kamehameha is ok, and Mystic Combination,
while doing essentailly the same damage as chocolate beam, is still a
refreshing change of pace to watch. Planet Burst is a good UB, the
second best after Super Ghost Buu Attack. Sleep is just a useless as it
was on Fat Buu, but Intantaneous Transmission is a beautiful addition.
You should enter MAX power mode as often as possible, and if you arent
using MAX power plus then you must be crazy. The only setback is that
while in MAX power mode his dash attack has the annoying tendency to
send the opponent flying so that you cant unleash your melee fury
without rushing in again and wasting precious MAX time, although you
can avoid this if you have enough blast stocks to use I. Transmission
right after you power up. While his throw isnt as powerful as some
other Buus, it does have range. Also, keep in mind that Kid Buu has the
awesome ability to teleport AT ANY TIME simply by pressing O+any
direction while he is in MAX power mode. Don't ever underestimate the
ferocity of Kid Buu.
