|Date of birth||Year 713|
Baddack is the last remaining Saiyan in Universe 3 due to Dr. Raichi's mass genocide, and the king of the Saiyan race. He requested to keep his presence a secret, so that nobody in his universe knew he was there. His first appearance was on page 413, in which it was announced he would fight against his eldest son from a different universe, Raditz. Baddack appears to have changed his ways after seeing how barbaric the Saiyans were and admits himself a lousy father in his universe.
This Baddack comes from Universe 3, a universe where the events that took place on Planet Kanassa happened a bit differently, and Baddack instead hunts down the last Kanassan all by himself. Apparently, in most other universes (according to DBM's interpretation) Baddack never received the ability to foresee future events. But this Baddack decided to hear out the Kanassan and listens to a warning that a "flat-horned demon" will destroy the Saiyans. Baddack understandably does not heed this warning and proceeds to eliminate this prophet, but the Kanassan requests he be struck through the heart. Baddack obliges.
Striking through the Kanassan's heart infects Baddack with visions from the future - he witnesses firsthand the inevitable doom of the Saiyan race and the death of King Vegeta at the hands of Freeza. Unlike the Baddack of Universe 18, Baddack heeds these visions and orders his team to return to Vegeta. Therefor avoiding dodoria, who was laying in wait on planet meat. They arrive in the Saiyan throne room where Baddack assertively tries to warn King Vegeta about Freeza's attack, but a second vision convinces him that simply convincing King Vegeta will not be enough, and so he enacts a Saiyan tradition that allows him to challenge King Vegeta for the throne.
As a soldier who was fighting on the frontlines for many years, Baddack surpasses the King and defeats him with mild difficulty, stealing his title and being challenged, in turn, by a Saiyan named Gerkin. Baddack denies the challenge by claiming a temporary period of rest after defeating the previous King, and mobilizes the Saiyan to take control of the onworld communications with Freeza, keeping his forces in the dark while Baddack organizes his Saiyan Army to prepare for a counterattack on Freeza's ship. Baddack also spares Broly and his father, Paragus, insinuating that he knows the value they have for the upcoming battle.
A few days pass until Freeza's ship comes within orbit of Planet Vegeta. Baddack gathers the Saiyans into a massive desert where their plan is to strike Freeza's base of operations all at once. First, Baddack sends their strongest soldier, Hanasia, into Freeza's base in order to destroy their shields. Hanasia survives an encounter with Dodoria after the Saiyans on the ground create an array of Fake Moons, summoning an army of Great Apes/Oozarus that charge Freeza's forces and annihilate them. The Saiyan Army unleashes a finishing barrage of energy blasts that score a direct hit on Freeza's ship, and the destruction obliterates Freeza, Zarbon, and the remainder of Freeza's soldiers.
The Saiyans are victorious, but things do not bode well for the rest of the universe with the Saiyans filling in Freeza's place.
Baddack enters the tournament many, many decades since the apparent destruction of the Saiyans at the hands of Dr. Raichi, a resurrected Tuffle. He opts to hide himself from the rest of Universe 3 until the time for his match arrives
"In my universe, we used to call you weakling Raditz, and you died at the first opportunity."
During the battle with Raditz, Baddack revealed that he, like Gokū, has achieved (at least) the first level of Super Saiyan. Intimidating Raditz, he underestimates his son, and Raditz transforms into an Oozaru and is seemingly able to rival Baddack's speed. After being smashed out of the ring and crashing into a mountain, Baddack suffers from visions of the future, though they are cryptic and vague.
The first vision shows brief images of Piccolo (either of Universe 16 or 18) declaring that a "threat to all universes" has appeared, Vegetto strangling Gohan (presumably of universe 16) and threatening to "kill everyone if he has to", and Bra telling Gokū and Vegeta that no one can stop her father, "most certainly not them." (This line is up to interpretation as to whether or not Bra is on Vegetto's side or if she has become victim to Vegetto's turmoil as well).
The second vision displays Zen Buu of Universe 4 yelling with rage and demanding "the end of the masquerade" and preparing to attack an unknown person. He also sees Freeza who exclaims that "Captain Ginyu is not dead after all", and even an image of Gokū shaking hands with a Cell Jr. who has apparently come to good terms with the Universe 18 team. Lastly, there is a single vision of the Super Namek uttering his first audible line in the entire comic, "Stop." Despite seeing Freeza (who Baddack inevitably recognizes) and his own son, Baddack claims to have no interest in any of them.
After recovering from the visions, Baddack countered Raditz's attack and he threw an energy blast at him, stunning him. Baddack proceeded to throw several more until eventually defeating Raditz. After winning, he and Dr Raichi stared each other down.
"That's for sure... We're both far outclassed by Buu! But if even Vegetto was eliminated, anything can happen... And regarding this fight... Cold will lose, and he will end up in bad shape!"
As the second round begins, Baddack is seen listening to the musical performance by Buu, where he even questions whether this was what his vision was about or not. Baddack is later shown in his Super Saiyan form battling King Cold. During the middle of the battle, Vegetto appears out of nowhere, having just escaped the alternate dimension that XXI trapped him in. As both Baddack and Cold stare in surprise at the intrusion, Cold attempts to continue the match, much to Baddack's surprise and Vegetto's anger which results in both being smashed into the ground by Vegeto. As one of the Kais is explaining to Vegeto what occurred during his match, Baddack shows his impatience by telling Vegetto to "get lost!" Just afterwards, Baddack experiences more visions.
The first vision shows Gokū reassuring Bra of Universe 16 that they will "find a way to stop Vegetto" much to Bra's dismay. Gohan (of universe 18 presumably) then shows a half of a dragon ball, stating "as long as we have this, he won't get his wish."
The second vision shows Yamcha of Universe 9 in a cocky pose, stating to an unknown person that the he (or she) "could not touch him, so he must be the strongest of all the universes." It then goes to Piccolo (either 16 or 18) telling Bra and Vegeta that "only his will keeps them alive," whereas both seem to comply.
After the departure of Vegetto and Gohan of Universe 16 being unharmed, Baddack and Cold prepare to continue their match, with Baddack believing his vision would not come true. Before their match could continue, Buu of Universe 4 launches his attack against the fighters and the spectators, where both Baddack and Cold are attacked by the goo of Zen Buu. But after the defeat of Buu by the hands of Gast Carcolh, his fight was resumed.
Cold and Baddack proved to be evenly match, though Cold had more raw power (As Baddack commented on each attacks). And though Baddack's tactics kept him ahead from his enemy, Cold used his one hundred percent of power, sending Baddack out of the ring to the Universe 18 space, where Baddack was halted by Super Saiyan 3 Gokū. He was left beaten in the ground, and it's unknown what happened to him. Because he was alive, it can be assumed he was healed and returned to his place.
It was shown during his battle with Raditz that he possesses the capability to transform into Super Saiyan. Though it is speculated how strong he actually is, it would seem that he is at a level around, or perhaps above the Androids of Universe 18, seeing as he is able to hold his own against King Cold, who Piccolo said was around the level of Android 16. He can also see into the future, though he cannot control when he sees these visions and he cannot choose what he sees. As a result, this can become distracting to him during battles.
Baddack seemed to have unlocked this form between defeating Freeza, and the Multiverse Tournament. He first uses the form against Raditz in the first round of the tournament and crushes his Great Ape Form. He then uses it against King Cold in Round 2, but loses.
- As demonstrated on Page 414, Baddack can become a Super Saiyan.
- On Page 413, an error was made in which it was not made clear whether or not he possessed a tail. On Page 414, it was revealed he does not.
- Even though Vegetto is the "half-son" of Baddack, the two do not seem to care much for each other. This could be shown where during Baddack's match, Vegetto smashes him and King Cold into the ground, and later with Baddack telling Vegetto to "get lost!"
- Despite being a Saiyan, this Baddack (and thus Universe 10 Baddack) was never shown eating in DBM.
