Q: Qual é a diferença entre dude e buddy ?
A: They're both ways of calling people as a replacement for their names.

If for example your friend did something and you are annoyed or angry, you can say "DUDE?!?!", but it's not natural if you use "buddy" in this case because "buddy" is more friendly than "dude". I think "dude" is quite flexible and is used a lot in many situations such as "Hey Dude", "What's up Dude?", "Dude, did you realise how stupid that is?"

I'd use "buddy" when greeting, like "Hey Buddy". I probably wouldn't use it with friends, but maybe with young kids who I know well. You might also hear "Hey kid-o".
Q: Qual é a diferença entre I don't know the dude either. e I don't know the guy either. ?
A: "Dude" is just slang for "guy" or "person". The sentences have the same meaning. "Dude" is much more casual.

Translations of "Dude"

Q: Como é que se diz isto em Inglês (EUA)? i'm wondering 'dude's meaning.

dude
1. man
2. boy
3.guy

all??
A: it’s can mean all, and sometimes we also use man on other terms also. Example is below.

Ex 1) ah man, I think I failed that test. (We’re not necessarily talking about a person, rather talking about something that isn’t what we wanted or is happening)
Q: Como é que se diz isto em Inglês (EUA)? is it me or does that dude looks like dexter?
what does that "is it me" mean? and give me some examples of it.
A: “is it me or...” is basically a question you ask if you think you’re possibly the only one who has a certain perspective, but you want to know if someone agrees with you

you can also say “is it just me” to make sentences flow better, but it can be used interchangeably

examples:
is it just me or does something look different about her appearance?
is it me or do you think he will do something bad?
is it me or does it smell like someone was cooking in here?

Other questions about "Dude"

Q: dude buddy man ?what is the difference between?
A: they all mean essentially the same thing when used in a certain context; friend. They're terms used to refer to individuals you consider close enough to use such terms with, so they're interchangeable.
Q: 会いたかったひとたちに会えた
Finally got to see these dudes who I've wanted to see. soa natural?
A: I personally think that you can just omit "who I've wanted to see" because the word "finally" implies that, unless you wanted to play it up and say like "who I've wanted to see my whole life".

Also, you wouldn't use dude for someone your romantically interested in (I don't know if that's the case here).
Q: This dude is really like my little bro.
こいつはマジで弟 soa natural?
A: As you've said, "It doesn't mean he looks like his real brother". It also doesn't mean he think that the person is truly (literally) his younger brother, though that's listed as one meaning of マジで。

The word "like" is key, I think. If you had said,
"This dude is really my little bro(ther)", then I'd say there was an issue, but by adding in like (まるで), it makes it perfect, IMO.

BTW, "bro" tends to have taken on its own meaning beyond "brother", and is often used to mean, "friend", or just "guy" (dude).

"What's up, bro?" -- not referring to an actual brother.
