When we think of the villains of Dragon Ball Z, fans’ minds will most likely turn to antagonists like Frieza, Cell, and Majin Buu, but there were still plenty of other brawlers who fought for the dark side against the Z Fighters. Dabura may not have been as important as the being who killed him, Majin Buu, but a fan brought back the demon lord using perfect cosplay, with the main series of Dragon Ball Super showing no signs of bringing back the villain who was ultimately destroyed by the creature he worked so hard to free under Babidi’s watchful eye.
Although Dabura was killed during the final arc of Dragon Ball Z, he was able to make a surprise comeback in the stories of Dragon Ball Heroes. With the introduction of Dark Demon Dimension, Dabura’s homeland, the demonic villain and several other new antagonists were able to threaten the Z Fighters. Currently, Dragon Ball Super Heroes just ended the battle against the strongest member of the Dark Demon Dimension, the mad scientist known as Fuu. With a new arc set to arrive this year in the Ultra God Mission, the Dark Demon Dimension may no longer be a threat, but that certainly doesn’t mean an eventual return isn’t in the cards.
Instagram cosplayer Mitchie The Doll shared this brand new take on the Demon King, even going so far as to showcase a version of Dabura who was only seen in the anime when the Dark Demon Dimension dweller was killed by Majin Buu and sent to heaven. in punishment for his sins:
2022 is shaping up to be a big year for Dragon Ball Super, with his next film coming to Japanese theaters in April this year. With the film focusing on the return of the Red Ribbon Army, it takes the opportunity to focus on Gohan, Piccolo, and Pan rather than the franchise’s usual headliners, Goku and Vegeta. Again, Dabura showed no signs of returning, although we did see some alien characters return from the grave.
