    ぶった is the past-tense or completed-aspect conjugation of a verb. Dictionaries generally don't include entries for conjugated forms. Try looking up the plain form ぶる. – Eiríkr Útlendi Mar 6 at 20:25

    Can try looking up ぶつ as well – Setris Mar 6 at 21:31

    It's not the past form of ぶる but ぶつ([打]{ぶ}つ, ≂なぐる, たたく)... jisho.org/word/%E6%89%93%E3%81%A4-1 – Chocolate Mar 6 at 23:20

    もうちょっと詳しく説明してもらえますか?ぶるが成り立つ文脈も想像できるような気がします… – Darius Jahandarie Mar 6 at 23:52

    @DariusJahandarie 「ぶりっ子をする」というような意味で「ぶる」と言っている場面なら考えられなくもないですが、文脈に支えられた上でのかなりcreativeな使い方になると思います。辞書には「ぶる」の「気取った」という意味が載っていますが、これを現代人が話し言葉で使うことはもうないかと…… – broccoli forest Mar 7 at 13:22
