Uboa is an NPC found in the game Yume Nikki by messing with the lightwitch, famous for his deformed and creepy self.
Uboa comes from the 2005 adventure game Yume Nikki. In an igloo in Pink Sea inside the Snow World, area of the game, there is a 1 of 64 chance that after turning off the lights in the room, the character Uboa appears (unless Poniko is killed by the player);If the player interacts with him, the player gets teleported to a wierd nightmarish place with a monster bleeding on it’s background and some characteristics resembling a place called White Desert from the same game.
The only way to exit the nightmare is by pinching yourself and returning to the real world.
Uboa’s name originated from a type of scream in Japan. Originally pronounced ‘uhoa’ (ooo-hwha), when said in a manner resembling a scream, the name certainly suits its appearance and situation. Uboa holds such a nightmarish grasp on our hearts because his appearance is so sudden and unpredictable that many who did this on accident were scared out of their minds.

Uboa is noted for his freakish contorted face and his constant screaming theme(usualy associated with the Japanese screaming symbol (’’ああああ’’) accompanying Uboa’s appearance.
Uboa’s distorted face has been severely modified in some places, specially “Uboachan”.

Yume Nikki was released in 2005 under version 0.00. The game was rereleased in October 2007 under version 0.10 which included an english translation. Since then, Yume Nikki’s popularity has grown, and Uboa has gained ever increasing noteriety, including its very own 4chan style imageboard, Uboachan.
The game, along with fan-made sequels and spinn-offs, is available for download in both English and Japanese versions from a fansite, Madotsuki’s Closet.
