why are majins called majins buu was create right? vegeta was majin when he got..."babidie?" to make him stronger and got an m/majin on his fore head.
Majin means Demon.It can refer to practically anything evil/demon like.Buu is the name of one thing, not a while entire race.
i think this is right but i just want to add that the jin part in majin might refer to magic abilities, cause in english we say jinni, and in other asian cultures they call magical beings jinn. western world storys about jinni normally go like they grant wishes but have an ironic twist or something goes wrong cause the person was not specific, like a deal with the devil. The people who call them jinn think they are god like beings but you cant tell if they are good or bad. im not sure about this but i think there is a connection between them. P.S. he is called buu because of a pun that the writer put in, he sometimes makes a theme for groups of people like the saiyen's were vegetables (kakarot), a nother one is bulma's family are named after underwear (trunks) there are a few but buu's comes from a song in cinderella: bibbidi bobbidi buu, bibbidi was bobbidi's father and created buu. sorry for nerding out on your post but i hope it helped
Well guys here is what dragonball.wikia.com says:"Majin - Can be translated as "demon". Ma (魔) means evil or demon. Jin (人) means human or person. It is also sometimes translated as "genie" (i.e. Viz's translation of the manga uses "djinn")"
Majins look like MajinBuu and fat buu, there is no other reason why they are called Majins!!
A lot of people in this thread are close, but they're not getting the whole picture. "Majin" is a combination of two Japanese phrases. The first is "ma" which can mean either magical or evil/demonic depending on the context. Or both. It's actually the same kanji Piccolo Daimao uses. The second is "jin", which literally means "person". In Japan, it's tacked onto the end of a phrase to denote a type of person. An "Amerika-jin" is an American person. A "Saiya-jin" is a Saiya-person, essentially. In English, it's usually transliterated as "American" or "Saiyan", obviously. Majin isn't because... well, "demon person" doesn't have that nice ring to it, and it's not entirely accurate since it doesn't capture the magical aspect anyway. But that's Majin in a nutshell.
Yeah that's pretty much it.Anyway, Majin itself is a race.Not Majin Buu's.I mean look at Babidi's minions.Their all have Majin infront of their actual names.Majin BuuMajin VegetaWe normally refer to Majin Buu as Buu.Majin is comparable to a clan.. like Babidi's clan. Think of it like an army almost.Private Ryan.Private Liam.
