Bureaucrats are users who can mass-delete pages, add and remove bureaucrat, admin, and bot rights, and perform more advanced administrator actions with extensions. Bureaucrat rights will be granted upon request, but requesters must first be an administrator or previously possessed the rights before they were taken for inactivity or another purely procedural reason. Bureaucrat rights are required for any user seeking to gain system administrator, suppressor, or steward.

A automatically generated list including all rights can be consulted here. This is one of the six default MediaWiki user groups, see :mw:Help:User rights and groups.

It is important to note that this role is a mostly testing role. Mostly in the sense that, from a technical perspective, it adds additional permissions that require an additional degree of trust and, so, with that level of trust, they can assist Stewards in preventing disruption to the wiki, which includes performing actions in a non-test capacity. That does not mean they should be issuing firmly worded warnings regarding user conduct that is non-urgent. Rather, unlike with administrator, which is almost entirely a testing role, they can assist in preventing disruption to the wiki, taking the minimal actions necessary, and referring longer term blocks, any sort of rights or user restrictions, and any sort of firmly worded warnings (i.e., "final warnings") to the Steward team. That is not to say they cannot provide gently worded guidance to users, however. As well, they can additionally make minor non-test changes to pages categorized at Category:Test Wiki policies, but if in doubt as to whether something is minor or possibly disputed by Stewards or the community, they should leave it to Stewards.
