Dabura (ダーブラ) is an antagonist and the devil of the Dragon Ball universe. He is the ruler of the Demon Realm. Existing for thousands of years, Dabura is a demon king placed under the wizard Babidi's control by a spell, becoming his right-hand man and thus doing his bidding. But after his death at the hands of Majin Buu and his later eventual revival, he went back to being the demon king once more. However he showed no interest in taking control of the mortal world, simply allowing demons to run free from time to time.

Many years in the far future, Demon King Dabura appears to have become a father, his son being Demon Prince Beelzebub. Debura now resides on Earth, which has become dry and desolate due to years of war and now the planet is inhabited by demons who live alongside humans, animals, and other races. Sand Land is a desolate wasteland where the supply of water is controlled by a greedy human king. Sheriff Rao asks help to find an elusive Phantom Lake, and the king of demons agrees that his son Beelzebub helps him.


  • His name is originally taken from the last half of the famous incantation, "Abracadabra".
  • In the anime, it is shown that when he died he was sent to Heaven since he would enjoy Hell too much, but when he arrived there he began acting friendly and effeminate. However these events only happen in the anime.
