In the first round of the tournament, Bujin of Universe 6 faced Majin Buu of Universe 11. Majin Buu starts the fight by swiftly punching Bujin in the face. Bujin, surprised that Buu attacked without any warning, uses his "Power of Illusion" technique to create a new world to fight in. However, Buu happily replies that he can do so also, and transforms the world their fighting in into a world of candy. This is once again followed by a swift punch to Bujin's face. Bujin, now overwhelmed by Majin Buu's power and speed, is forced to use his ultimate technique, Energy Bonds. The bonds quickly wrap around Majin Buu and slice through him. This leaves Bujin to believe himself the victor, but Buu easily regenerates and gives Bujin yet another swift punch to the face. With Majin Buu stepping on Bujin's face triumphantly, he is declared the winner.
Match Seven: Uub (U18) vs. Tidar (U19)
In the first round, Uub was scheduled to fight against Tidar from Universe 19. Tidar challenges Uub with his many weapons of nanotechnology, first using missiles with homing devices in them. This is no trouble for Uub, and he is able to easily dodge all of them and blow them up at a safe range with ease. However, when Tidar uses what he calls "God's Blade," he succeeds in cutting off Uub's arm. This infuriates Uub and results in Tidar being blown to ashes with a single energy blast. Babidi from Universe 11 offers to heal Uub's arm for a price, but Uub declines the offer. Majin Buu from Universe 4 then perfectly heals Uub's arm, saying that he feels close to Uub due to the fact that "he has a little bit of Buu in him."
