Vacuuma (バキューマ, Bakyūma) was a Demon-level Mysterious Being of the Monster Association.

AppearanceEdit

Vacuuma is a large monster resembling an elephant. He has two very large eyes with black sclera with light coloured pupils, sharp teeth, a pair of small tusks and humanoid hands. He stands on two legs, wearing oriental slippers. His head-ware presented a series of curved ends with internal details and a particular horn shaped jewel on top. Vacuuma wears three bracelets for each of his wrists and three necklaces of similar sort.

Vacuuma new powers

Once Vacuuma absorbs several monsters, his ears become similar to a bat’s wings, he gains an extra eye on his forehead and becomes bulkier. Vacuuma also grows more proboscises, one for each monster's power. It is not confirmed whether the powers he gains affect his appearance or not.

PersonalityEdit

Vacuuma has a disregard to other lesser monsters as he will consume them to gain their powers. Despite this, he holds the leaders of the Monster Association, Gyoro Gyoro and Orochi, in great importance, as he does not want to return from a battle empty handed and berates the retreating monsters for their cowardice. Like almost all other monsters, Vacuuma is arrogant and confident in his fighting capabilities, causing him to overestimate himself.

PlotEdit

Human Monster SagaEdit

Monster Association ArcEdit

Puri Puri kills Vakumma

Puri-Puri Prisoner executes Vacuuma with a straight punch.

Vacuuma stops the monsters fleeing from Puri-Puri Prisoner, telling them that Gyoro Gyoro and Orochi will not tolerate any deserters. When they berate the monster by telling him to fight Puri-Puri Prisoner himself, he accepts their offer, then inhales the fleeing monsters, absorbing their powers.

Vacuuma then fires a variety of attacks at the hero but Puri-Puri Prisoner remains undeterred. The monster mocks his twitching, but Puri-Puri Prisoner reveals that it was the creation of his new style of fighting, Vibration ☆ Angel. The hero completely smashes through Vacuuma and ends the monster's life. The monster's final thoughts were of Puri-Puri Prisoner being a monster.[1]

Abilities and PowersEdit

As a Demon-level monster, Vacuuma can easily dispatch of the several Tiger-level monsters he absorbed such as Electric Catfish Man and Maiko Plasma. However, even after absorbing the other monsters, he was still not strong enough to withstand the full-power assault of Puri-Puri Prisoner, supposedly the weakest hero in S-Class.

However, this ability has a large drawback, as after fully digesting the monster and leaving his body, he loses his powers and is weakened.

TriviaEdit

  • Vacuuma's name comes from the combination of Vacuum and Akuma.
