Tama (卵) is an android found as a disembodied robot head by Kagura who brought it back to the Yorozuya office. She was named "Tama" or literally egg by Kagura, who was obsessed with eating tamagokakegohan at the time and insisted that the head was meant for cracking eggs open. Tama was originally a robot created by Professor Hayashi Ryuuzan, to provide his sickly daughter Hayashi Fuyou with a companion. Hayashi tried to implant the personality of his daughter - Fuyou - into Tama, but the experiment killed his daughter in the process. Tama however, possesses the element known as the "Seed", and therefore retains some of Fuyou's personality and is capable of human emotions.[2]

When Tama was first found, she had lost her memories prior to becoming only a head, and was at that time framed for the murder of Professor Hayashi. The android Hayashi later began a robot uprising, even hijacking the Terminal, in order to retrieve the Seed and Tama, whom he saw as the copy of Fuyou. Tama then sacrifices herself to save Yorozuyaverification/corroboration needed . Despite reconstructing her, Tama already lost most of her memories during the showdown at the Terminal, remembering only that samurai are her friends. This had been her earlier conclusion after having been saved by Shinpachi while being chased by killer maid robots. Her body was later rebuilt from another maid robot No.305, allowing her to become a complete robot maid again working at Otose's snack house.

Acknowledging Gintoki's strength, Tama creates in her body a type of antiviruse with the strongest and the leader of them, Leukocyte King 白血球王, being identical to Gintoki.[3]
