Luud, also known as Lord Luud, is a Machine Mutant created by Dr. Myuu.
In Luud's first appearance, he appeared as the deity of a galactic society of masked fanatics on Planet Luud called the Luud Cult. He started off as a metal statue with a cauldron in front of him and a container shaped like an egg timer next to him. The enforcer of the cult, Cardinal Mutchy Mutchy, sent out the followers of the cult to find the Dragon Balls, which would be able to fully power Luud. If they failed him, Luud would transform them into dolls, which would then be dropped into his cauldron, adding their energy to him. According to the cult's beliefs, when Luud had enough energy, he would rise up, destroy the non-believers and reward those that were faithful to him.After Mutchy Mutchy was destroyed by Goku, Trunks, and Pan, Master Dolltaki appeared and told them his story. He activated Luud, who took in the rest of the followers, bringing up him to two-thirds of his power. Luud then transformed into his true form, a large mechanical doll, and fought Goku and Trunks. Though he was powerful, he was not at his full strength, but was able to fight Goku and Trunks since he seemed unable to take any damage. When Dr. Myuu found out that Luud was being matched by his two opponents, he demanded that Dolltaki offer Pan to the Machine Mutant, who had been turned into a doll earlier. Dolltaki refused, only to be transformed into a doll as well and they were both placed inside Luud. This brought him to full power and Luud was easily able to fight against Goku and Trunks in this form. As it it turned out, the people Luud absorbed were only stored inside him, not killed. Inside, Pan found out that Luud was created from one of of Myuu's nucleus cells and that everyone of his networks was built around it. As such, this was his one weakpoint. However this cell had to be hit from the inside and the outside at the same time. With help from the Para Para Brothers, Pan managed to contact Goku telepathically and, after a few failed attempts, they succeeded in hitting it at the same time, destroying Luud.
Powers and Abilities
Luud possesses enormous strength thanks to his large size. After attaining his full power, he can fire a powerful beam out of his mouth that causes explosions. He is also practially invincible and Goku and Trunks' attacks did nothing to him. The only exception is his one weakpoint, the cell that he was built from.
