Super Buu vs Super Janemba

Updated on January 27, 2010

Janemba and Super Buu(Which one has the greater power)

This topic generally causes a lot of arguments between DragonBall Z fans. It also has long been around but still has remained unanswered, and it's about time fans find out. In this topic, we have the Majin Buu Side, and the opposing side, Janemba Side.

Janemba and Super Buu are among the most powerful villains in the series. However, either one of them must be slightly stronger than the other, which is really really easy to spot. Some fans may agree with what's going to be revealed, some may not, and some may even get mad. Regardless, they must accept the fact.

Janemba(Second Form)

This is Janemba in his second form. He assumed this demon-looking form when Super Saiyan 3 Goku gave him a devastating beating. Unlike his first form, which was a huge monster roughly the size of an Oozaru, this one is only a size of a tall man. Upon taking this form, his power increases greatly and he can now use the Bunkai Teleport in which he degenerates to disappear and then regenerates to reappear behind his opponent to cut him down.

In most DragonBall Z games, Janemba is usually exagerrated to be very powerful and was able to overpower Super Saiyan 3 Goku. Just what do they mean by "overpowering" Goku? Do they mean overpowering Goku by pounding him to death like a helpless trash, or overpowering him by using dirty tactics? Well, it is true that Janemba is stronger than most villains that were encountered before him, but he doesn't far surpass Super Saiyan 3 Goku in terms of brute strength. As you remember, Goku was holding himself pretty well against Janemba and was outclassing him in hand-to-hand combat that Janemba was starting to get irritated. Super Saiyan 3 Goku started losing because he couldn't stay in his SSJ3 form for a long time. Thus, when he reverted back to his base form, that's when he began to lose to Janemba. Imagine if Goku could stay in SSJ3 like he can in his previous Super Saiyan forms, then there would be a good chance that he could've beaten Janemba even if he had his sword.

Janemba is not really as strong as some fans claim he is, unlike the next guy in our topic.

Super Buu

The determination of Super Buu's power level is perhaps more complex than any other villains' in the series, since his powers vary greatly each time he sucks up a fighter. In his original Super form, Buu's powers are greatly superior to a SS2 but inferior to SS3 and Mystic Gohan. However, when he absorbs Gotenks and Piccolo, he becomes what most fans refer to as Buutenks. As Buutenks, his power level matches that of Mystic Gohan and SSJ3 Goku's. It's safe to assume that this form is already equal in strength and power to Janemba, maybe even stronger, since as mentioned before, SSJ3 Goku was able to land several hits on Janemba. Super Buu was able to attain a much greater power upon absorbing Gohan and upon doing so, he transformed into what fans call, Buuhan or Mystic Buu, Majin Buu's ultimate form. As Buuhan, he has Gotenks', Piccolo's, and Gohan's powers all at his disposal which when added up together with his own, would make SSJ3 Goku's abilities seem like a joke. Buuhan is undeniably the most powerful villain in DBZ.

This is the conclusion of this very informative topic. I hope that you'll agree.

      This comment is for Burg.He has sent a comment that SSJ3 Gotenks is stronger than SSJ3 Goku but how can that be possible Gotenks is a fusion of Goten and Trunks so that makes it clear that fusions are more powerful because Gotenks has the power of both Goten and Trunks but up to my knowledge i say that full power SSJ3 Goku is a slightly more or less powerfull than Gotenks and can be possible that both are evenly matched and i say Burg plese read and try to understand my comment

      Burg 5 years ago your saying that janemba is weaker that normal super buu? i recall SS3 goku put up a solid fight against jenemba.

      your logic fails when you say super buu is 2x buu...because Evil buu was a part of fat buu...they were the SAME person. when evil buu absorbed fat buu, his power level didn't increase THAT's like cutting yourself in half and then absorbing yourself, and then claim that your power more than doubled because of it

      also, SS3 gotenks is weaker than ss3 goku ...i'm not even going to bother sitting here and explaining that one to you, but do your research and you'll find its if ss3 gotenks can crush superbuu...then so can goku hands down

      no way is ssj3 goku more powerful than normal super buu, super buu was made up of evil buu and fat buu, and evil buu was stronger than fat buu. So super buu is 2 x fat buu + a little extra. ssj3 goku fought a decent fight against fat buu but was no way twice as strong as fat buu. Therefore super buu is better ssj3 goku and super janemba in terms of strength speed etc
