Trivia[edit | edit source]
- Its name comes from "Bunbuku Chagama," a Japanese folktale about a tanuki that turns into a teapot.
- It was revealed that Bunbuku appears sitted on its own testicles. This is a reference to the large scrotum that is traditionally associated with the tanuki as a yokai.
- Even though Bunbuku is originally a teapot, after "eating" the Inu Inu no Mi, Model: Tanuki, it cannot be used to boil water, as it will be hurt from the fire.
