Doctor, you are no match for my massive cranial capacity. The purity of my alien intellect will defeat your simian brain. Besides, I am published in over 5000 systems across the galaxy.
~ Balloons For Brains

Balloons For Brains (shortened to BFB) is one of the main villains from MDK 2.


BFB is one of the Streamriders, a short green alien riding a floating chair with a bulbous head with it's twin brains exposed. BFB was sent by Schwang Schwing to invade the Jim Dandy and capture the Dr. Fluke Hawkins, who was thwarting their plans. BFB acts as a rival to Dr. Hawkins throughout the game, wanting to prove his intellect superiority over the doctor's "simian" brain.

BFB invades the Jim Dandy along with his soldiers, forcing Dr. Hawkins to fend off the invaders. He encounters and defeats BFB, but ends captured. Max returns to the Jim Dandy only to find the place full of aliens, finding the doctor trapped by BFB.

BFB had created his own dog robot which he called Bad Max, who he pits against the original Max. Max destroys Bad Max and releases Dr. Hawkins, who chases BFB around the ship while he sets various bombs which the doctor must disable. BFB, recognizing Dr. Hawkins intelligence, challenges him for a final match, but ends defeated, after which Dr. Hawkins removes his brains for research and throws his remains into space.
