|“||To all intelligent lifeforms across space... I am Emperor Buggler, this universe's new ruler. As the first stage of this intergalactic conquest, I have taken the liberty of seizing control of the five main planets in the Starry Sky Solar System. Before long, the planets that all of you inhabit shall too meet the same fate. If you value your lives, bow down and accept me as your ruler. If you disagree, then of course you're always free to challenge my faithful followers, the Five Darkling Bombers, to battle... If you have the courage and strength to do so, of course... Hahahahaha!||„|
Buggler is one of Bomberman's more recurring villains and arguably his nemesis, first appearing in Bomberman '94 and becoming the main antagonist of many Bomberman titles since then.
Appearing to be an eldery man Buggler is also a scientist, as is evident by his official title of "Professor Buggler", he created many evil Bombermen and is a brilliant (if mad) scientist whose origins appear to lay deep within the mysteries of space and time.
In most of his appearances Buggler is obsessed with conquering the universe and is already the leader of the Hige Hige Bandits and is both a capable scientist and a dark magician - he is also a villain who will stop at nothing to achieve his goals.
After being destroyed by Bomberman, he was revived by Nitros in Bomberman Hero, who was brainwashed by Evil Bomber. In this game, he is referred to as Bagular. Bomberman fought Bagular, destroying his body, but his spirit entered a computer which then became part of a tank. In the end Bomberman destroyed him, but in a final attempt to take Bomberman down with him, he blew up Garaden Star. Bomberman escaped, however.
