- "Time's up, Momonga onii-chan!"
- -Bukubukuchagama using her voice acting.
Bukubukuchagama (ぶくぶく茶釜) is one of the three female guild members of Ainz Ooal Gown and regarded as one of the Forty-One Supreme Beings by the NPCs of the Great Tomb of Nazarick. She is the older sister of Peroroncino and the creator of Aura Bella Fiora and Mare Bello Fiore.
Bukubukuchagama’s exact race and appearance is unknown. Since Peroroncino described her as an "Odd-looking pink flesh," it seems her appearance is quite grotesque.
Bukubukuchagama had a cheerful nature and enjoyed playing pranks on her friends. She can be at times mischievous around her little brother's friend Momonga. When she acts serious, she would often quarrel with Peroroncino, insisting on the notion that the younger brother must obey their older sister. In that regard, Bukubukuchagama's thoughts influenced the relationship between Aura and Mare, a pair of siblings similar to the kind she shared with her brother.
Moreover, Bukubukuchagama usually speaks in the high pitch tone she uses for acting. Whenever Bukubukuchagama had to reprimand her brother, she would become a very scary person, as described by the other guild members. Because of that, her tone would suddenly change, and she would use her original deeper voice to scold him. She tends to be mindful of the words spoken by her brother strictly so. For that reason, she would even scold Peroroncino for saying something she doesn't like to hear from him.
BackgroundBukubukuchagama is one of the three female members of Ainz Ooal Gown. Due to her race, Bukubukuchagama had trouble joining with a party before she met Momonga and Touch Me. After meeting the World Champion, she joins his clan which is Nine's Own Goal prior to the formation of Ainz Ooal Gown guild. The story behind that problem was when Bukubukuchagama was not able to find a party of her own to adventure. She couldn't easily adventure with other players due to her appearance, but with the exception of Touch Me who was the first to volunteer allowed her to join him.
In real life, she is a famous voice actress, who often played young girl characters in H-Games to earn money. Bukubukuchagama's younger brother, Peroroncino, who played YGGDRASIL with her, happened to stumble upon one of the H-Games she had played a role in. After discovering that Bukubukuchagama was a voice actor for one of the heroines in the game he wanted to buy and play, her brother lost further interest in it since then.
Bukubukuchagama's mainstream stage name happens to be called Kazeumi Kumi. Her old fans used to refer her as Kaze-chin.
Only in the Web Novel, from a distant past, Bukubukuchagama had once visited the Gigantic Tree within the 6th Floor of Nazarick where her NPCs created by her reside in. When Bukubukuchagama was around, there were several guests who visited there alongside her. They were the female members of Ainz Ooal Gown such as Yamaiko and Ankoro Mocchi Mochi. Along with the subordinates her friends have created. While Bukubukuchagama was staying in the Gigantic Tree, Aura would often be seated on her Bukubukuchagama’s lap.
For instance, Aura's dresser was filled with extravagant dresses and feminine clothes selected and then collected by Bukubukuchagama for her NPC to try out wearing. There were remnants of the time where Bukubukuchagama used Aura as a dress-up doll alongside the variety of plushies she has given to her to complement the elf's look.

When Ainz told Aura that he was planning to enlist the help of Shalltear during his journey to the Dwarf Kingdom, it left the dark elf shocked, considering that she has very limited uses. Seeing how Aura acted the way she did towards Shalltear, it reminded Ainz of the sibling relationship shared between Bukubukuchagama and her younger brother. He remembers Bukubukuchagama's concern whether Peroroncino had been causing problems for her companions to which the latter replied no, making her feel baffled by it that he had not done anything wrong yet. Along the way, he inquires Aura about how she would respond to his orders if it conflicted with her creator Bukubukuchagama's orders, leaving the dark elf uncertain on what to do. Nonetheless, Aura prayed to Bukubukuchagama in hopes of Shalltear being able to successfully complete her mission without problem as she is created by her brother. Meanwhile, Ainz made note of all the rewards he had given out to the NPCs so far for their hard work. One of them was Bukubukuchagama's Wristwatch awarded to her creation Aura.

Abilities and Powers
Bukubukuchagama is specialized in defensive ability. She had the title of "The Unsinkable." She is very skilled as a player and played the role of a commander. Her swift and accurate judgments, born of long experience with the game, placed her firmly in the top class of YGGDRASIL's players. She was skilled at hate management, which was a difficult task since hate was a hidden value, especially in a data-heavy game like YGGDRASIL.
Since the Guild is working together, she had to put the whole team together as a tank. While her character’s stats are low, she is able to compensate that sort of weakness with first-class defensive items. Whenever the whole guild is away, she would hold down the fort for them until they returned. Additionally, she was immune to the negative status effects that undead could inflict her with, like poison or paralysis.
- Knight's Challenge: It allows the user to increase the hate towards themselves along with the damage done to the target.

- Shield Stun
- Wall of Jericho
- Ring of Ainz Ooal Gown: It allows the user to freely teleport between every room inside Nazarick. Every member of Ainz Ooal Gown was required to wear this ring.
As her younger brother's close friend, she got along quite well with Momonga. She gave him a wristwatch with her voice as the alarm. The reason why a mainstream voice actress like herself would affect such a vexing tone was clearly because she wanted to tease Ainz. Momonga trust her skills as a player and followed her instructions. In a sense, he admired her for how she was skilled at hate management, which was a difficult task since hate was a hidden value. They worked in the same team to clear the Great Tomb of Nazarick.

- In the English publication of the Light Novel, her name was literally translated as "BubblingTeapot."
- As a voice actress, she specializes in Loli Characters.

- Shalltear knows that her job is a voice actress, but due to her lack of knowledge about the World of 2138, she misunderstood voice actress as a class that creates life.
- According to Peroroncino, Bukubukuchagama had a less mainstream stage name, Kazeumi Kumi. Her old fans used to call her Kaze-chin. Bukubukuchagama changed it several times, but she liked it the best.
- Suzuki Satoru had a photo of Bukubukuchagama dressed as a princess in a white dress while holding a shield aloft. According to him, it depicts herself happily riding a pumpkin carriage which she, as a girl, has always dreamed of doing.
- (Bukubukuchagama's Childish Voice): "Momonga-oniichan! I’m setting the time!"
- (To her companions concerning Peroroncino): "Has my stupid little brother given you any trouble?"
- (To Peroroncino): "...People might laugh it off at a drinking party, but do you really think you can shout this sort of thing out just because you're among friends?"
- (To Peroroncino): "Oi, brat. Do you want me to tell everyone about what you did when you were twelve?"
- (To Peroroncino): "...Hey, did I give you permission to shut up? Did that sound like a joke to you? Hah? You'd better—"
- (To Peroroncino): "Oi, dumbass brother of mine. Remember this well — mind your manners, even if you get along with people. Especially when you crack your dirty jokes. Don't embarrass me just because you get excited around friends. Got it?"
- (To Yamaiko): "Let's not talk about marriage, Yama-chan. You see, I am everyone's idol Chagama-san, so all talk of lovers and weddings are forbidden."
- (To Yamaiko): "You shouldn't say that, Yama-chan~ people discover new things because of folks like Ulbert-san who want to find them. Sometimes they might even find a loophole, but that's expected of those shitty devs."
- (To Momonga): "Momonga-san, don't be mistaken. This isn't taking on a hardship, but rather, it's because we're like this that we can take it on at all. Look, in terms of physical damage dealing, defense, magical damage dealing, healing and support, we're probably the most specialized members of Nine's — no, of Ainz Ooal Gown. If I could put a team together to fight that boss, I'd probably pick all of us again."
- (To both the Death Knight and Asura): "You're the best, Death Knight-kun! Now look at me, you son of a bitch!"
