This guide will provide you with all the BnB combos and basics of Kid Buu in Dragon Ball Fighterz Season 3.5.
5L is a decently sized jab with good frame data. SLL and 5LLL are very basic but safe on block. Slightly move Buu forwards. Buu has a safe, low hitting 2L, but mind its stubbiness. 5M is double hitting, it goes exactly half screen, and it is safe.
It is both anti-reflect and gapless and can also cancel the first hit into anything but Light. jM is the same; however, only the second hit is an overhead! Buu has three down Mediums: IM, 2M and 3M.
They all track to the enemy within certain ranges. These are roughly the tracking ranges of each one. On a hit, spamming 3M will automatically go into 2MIM and spamming 2M will go into IM.
Using more than 1 of them prevents you from going into 5M, though, so you’ll have to work around that.
Also important: IM is both faster and has better damage scaling than 2M and 3M. And remember that they all pull the enemy towards you. It is important later. 5H is larger than it looks, while 2H is a lot smaller than it looks. At least it hits behind Buu. 12H is normal but carries all of Buu’s momentum.
5S shoots a single Ki Blast across the screen and is incredibly important to his pressure. 28 throws the Ki Blast in an arc that covers jumping at all distances or directly at the enemy if close enough. It is not safe on the block, though.
You can air dash out of it and do stuff, but you will still get the landing recovery when you hit the ground. And lastly, jS shoots a Ki Blast downwards and stalls his momentum; it is used for Buu’s cross-ups.
Mystic Ball Attack (236X, Air OK)
All the versions are safe on block. The Light version goes at a steep angle and recovers close to the ground, while Medium and Heavy will cover more space and recover in the air.
The Light version is mainly used for combo extensions and ending block strings safely. The Medium version is used in corner combos and for mixups. It only comes when it connects after the bounce, though, so if your corner combos aren’t working, keep this in mind. The Heavy version does the same things as Medium but better and is used to confirm stray hits into a knockdown.
Mystic Arm Swing (214)
A series of anti-air commands grabs all with the same range but different properties. The Light version is fast and gives sliding knockdowns but can only super afterwards. You can use it to confirm 3M or auto combo. Heavy combines the speed of light and the ground bounce of Medium.
Candy Beam (236S)
Just a faster beam, piercing Ki Blasts and clashing with other beams. On a hit, it teleports to the enemy. Only the tip has a hitbox, though, and it takes a long time to recover. However, it will heal 400 blue health.
This one’s bubblegum flavour. You can Tiger knee it (2369) to get it close to the ground.
Arm Ball (2148)
Lockdown to go, conveniently conserved. It is slow to start up but will hold your enemy in place for almost a full second and goes far further than necessary. Enough time to get a four-way mixup that is incredibly hard to block.
It pulls out Buu, who in turn pulls out the canned mix. Being the highest blockstun assist in the game, it can give any character great mixups. It’s a hassle to use for combos because of the long startup, but it’s possible.
Overall a great assist, for when above-average blockstun is enough.
Standard beam-type C Assist.
Basic Gapless Safe Blockstrings
Kid Buu’s blockstrings have lots of layers, you can start with these two strings.
2L5LL > 1M5M(2) > 5H > 236L
2L5LL > 1M5M(2) > 5S
2L and L are great for staggering your approach.
2.5L > (pause) 5LL > 1M5M(2) > 555H > 236L
5M will put you back in their faces, if you get reflected.
2L5L > (pause) 5L > 5M(2,1M > 5S > 66 5L > 5M(2)1M > 55 > 236L
However, your main pressure reset point is at 5S. If they hold the block, Buu gets to loop his blockstring again.
2L5LL > 1M5M(2) > 5S > 66 5LL > 1M5M(2) > 55 > 66 5LL > 1M5M(2) > 55 > …
Slightly delaying the five afterwards will frame trap any button, including Super dash.
2L5LL > 1M5M(2) > 55(dl)5H >
And if they think they can reflect the 5H, you can always use 5M, which is auto-timed to punish reflect.
2L5LL > 1M5M(2) > 55 5M(2)1M >…
And while it may be risky, you can lock them down using Arm Ball if they’re too scared to press anything.
2L5LL > 1M > 2145 > …
At any point, you can also cross them up with JS and confirm it with j236H.
2L5L > 96 js > j236H > JLL(2)
Past that point, you can continue your block string into 25. From here on, it’s another Rock-Paper-Scissors situation.
2L5LL > 1M5M(2) > 555H > 25 > 66 JLM(1H >
While it’s technically unsafe, Buu has an answer to everything. If they keep blocking, js will make Buu plus and let him loop his pressure indefinitely.
2L5LL > 1M5M(2) > 5S5H > 28 > S > (land) 1M5M(2) > 555H > 25 > S > …
Trying to Hit or press anything, else will get you counterhit by js.
2L5LL > 1M5M(2) > 555H > 25 > js (land) 1M5M(2) > …
The Heavy Mystic Ball instead of js will beat Superdash and set up a 50/50 on block 1.
2L5LL > 1M5M(2) > 555H > 25 > j236H > …
50/50 off 236M/H
An assist of 25t of blockstun is enough, but more is preferred. It works off 236M too but will need slightly more stun.
50/50 off 236M/7M5M2) > 555H > 25 > 12364
2L5LL > 1M5M(2) > 555H > 28 > j236H > A1 > (dl) 66 jLM(1)H > …
2L5LLS 1M5M(2) > 555H > 25 > j236H > A1 > (Land) 2L > 1M > ..
Depending on your assist’s pushback, you might have to commit some buttons mid-screen, but the pushback won’t matter in the corner.
2L5LL > 1M5M(1) > 236M > A1 > (land) 2L > …
4 Way Mixup using 214S
By covering the startup of 2145 with an assist and using the float properties of a super jump instant airdash, you can get a dirty high/low left/right mixup.
2L5LL > 1M5M(2) > 555H > A1 > 2145 > 296 > (land) 2L
Super jump IAD Crash Course
In case you don’t know, crouching before jumping gives you a super jump (s). During an sj, you can “float” and “fast fall” by holding up or down. It’s tricky, but with practice, you can float to the left or right of your enemy close to the ground.
4 Way Mixup using 214S
Same as with the 50/50, you’ll need to experiment with when to call your assist and Arm Ball.
