Majin Buu’s this attack charges up a large Ki Ball. During fight with Vegeta, Majin Buu will throw 3 of them.

In this attack, Majin Buu erupts in a large energy blast, causing damage and knock back. Defending against it is a good tactic as it is hard to dodge.
During all the fights, the attack patterns of Majin Buu will stay the same. So, you can apply the same tactics in all the fights. Follow these boss fight tips to take down Majin Buu fast in DBZ Kakarot.
Melee Special and Follow-Ups
The best tactic against Majin Buu is to spam melee Special Attacks that has a follow-up option (by Pressing O) , as it will lock Majin Buu in a combo chain while dealing good damage to him. These Special Attacks also have a low Ki cost.
In Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot, Gohan’s melee special is ‘Crushing Strike’, Vegeta’s is ‘Massive Strike’ and Goku has ‘Meteor Smash’.
Deplete Stun Gun
During the fight, using your special melee attacks will deplete Majin Buu’s stun gauge very quickly which will make him vulnerable which will allow you to even take away a whole life bar from him.
Defend and Counter
Majin Buu will use hard-striking melee attacks & Megaton Bomb to cause damage to you. Escaping these will be very hard so if you do not use your defend effectively, you will be outdamaged by him.
Also, try and counter to get an upper hand on him and do some combos of your own.
Use transformations (L2+R2 on PS4) to get a solid boost to your attack damage. Transformation drains your Ki, but as you will be focused on melee during these fights, so Ki drain will not be a big issue
