The East Kaiōshin was the "youngest and least powerful" (一番若く非力だった), but he somehow managed to escape "merely" greatly injured. The North and West Kaiōshin were killed outright, but the South Kaiōshin, who was the bravest and strongest (一番たくましく強かった) was absorbed by Boo (whose form the Elder Kaiōshin surmises was the extremely muscular one they just saw; Kibito-shin says yes). Next to be absorbed was the Great Kaiōshin, who was fat, but kind and gentle (ふとっていたけどやさしく温和); this absorption caused Boo, who was previously pure evil and would not obey Bibbidi, to come just barely under his control.
So, concludes the Elder Kaiōshin, the little Majin Boo over there is the original, most troublesome one (最初のいちばんやっかいなヤツ). Kibito-shin concurs: The heart which he had gained to the point of diminishing his power (パワーを減らしてまで手に入れた心), has now gone back to the way it was: to evil incarnate, with no self-control whatsoever (自制心がまったくない、悪そのものの存在).
