* TooSoon: The European versions of ''Bomberman'' were renamed and reworked as ''Eric and the Floaters'' and ''Dyna Blaster'', as at the time of its release, UsefulNotes/TheTroubles were in full swing, and IRA terrorists were all over the news for carrying out bombing attacks which claimed a number of civilians.

The UK was still reeling from the IRA's wrath during those days, and a video game about planting bombs would certainly be seen as insensitive regardless of context.

* FollowTheLeader: The series is guilty of blatantly tying in concepts or mechanics from other games. Some of these were well received (the Rooi in response to ''VideoGame/SuperMarioWorld'''s Yoshi, and the Charabom in response to ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}''). Others not so much (''Act:Zero'' in response to the massive influx of DarkerAndEdgier reboots).

* MilestoneCelebration: Amusingly, ''Super Bomberman R'' has a spot on the cover highlighting the series ''33rd'' anniversary. It seems less like an anniversary celebration than it is celebrating the series actually getting a new mainline game following a SequelGap.

* MarketBasedTitle: ''Bomberman Tournament'' is known as ''Bomberman Story'' in Japan. It's a more fitting title, since "Tournament" would imply more emphasis on online multiplayer with singleplayer that boils down to "multiplayer with bots". However, this game is more "''Bomberman'' [[XMeetsY meets]] ''Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda'' with a side of ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}''" in terms of the singleplayer, not that some people even bother with singleplayer in a ''Bomberman'' game.
