Bub-ulber, Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door

Bub-ulber is a Bub-ulb that resides in Petalburg during the events of Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door. Bub-ulber loves trying new foods and will post a food request at the Trouble Center.

After Mario takes on Bub-ulber's trouble, he heads to Petalburg. Once there, Bub-ulber requests that Mario brings him a Hot Dog from Glitzville. Mario does so, and after Bub-ulber eats the Hot Dog, he requests another one. Mario returns to Glitzville and procures another Hot Dog. After Bub-ulber eats the second Hot Dog, he asks Mario to bring him a Mousse Cake. As such, Mario acquires some Cake Mix from the Pianta Parlor in west Rogueport and takes the ingredient to Zess T. She cooks the Cake Mix, turning the item into a Mousse Cake. Mario returns to Bub-ulber and delivers the Mousse Cake. With a cake and two hot dogs in his stomach, Bub-ulber finally becomes satisfied. As a reward for Mario's help, Bub-ulber gives him an endless supply of Dried Bouquets, at a cost. Whenever Mario needs another Dried Bouquet, he can stop by Petalburg and pick one up from Bub-ulber after giving him another Hot Dog.



Yes, hello to you.
I am Bub-ulber.

I have been unable to forget the savory Hot Dog flavor...my taste buds are sweating in anticipation of your next spicy visit.

By the way: have you heard? Dried Bouquets are not flowers that have withered and gone dry. They are actually flowers that have had the clocks of their lives adjusted to tick just a little slower than normal flowers. I hope you will take the time to stop and smell these delicate flowers.

In fact, I would like you to come visit me again with the above-mentioned item. Yours in spiciness.



  • "That's Bub-ulber. Doesn't it kinda weird you out to see a talking flower? I mean, where's his head? Is it the flower part? ...Or the bulb part?"
