     Bomberman Bros. 
The eight siblings. Also known as the Super Bomberman Rangers or simply Bombermen.
  • Amazing Technicolor Population: Beyond these eight, various multicolored background Bombermen started appearing since around Bomberman '93.
  • Badass Adorable: Especially when making a (n n) face.
  • Big "WHAT?!": In Super R, each of them may do this when they're blown up.
  • Color Motif: Certain appearances give them unique personalities to reflect their colorations.
  • Depending on the Writer: The eight bombers' exact biological relationships vary between source materials, some referring to them as siblings and others depicting them as mere members of a species of Bombermen.
  • Divergent Character Evolution: While the major bombers have been subject to having individual personalities developed over the years, it wasn't until Super R when this trope took effect for all eight.
  • Foolish Sibling, Responsible Sibling: In Super Bomberman R, White, Blue, Pink and Aqua are shown to be the responsible siblings to Black, Red, Yellow, and Green's foolish siblings.
  • Heroic Lineage: In Super Bomberman R, Vic Viper Bomber claims the 8 siblings all descended from the designs and parts of the legendary Prototype Bomber, granting them the ability to adapt and copy any Bomber's special abilities.
  • Kid Heroes: In the Land series, the main bombers appear to be depicted as such. In R, this is played straight with Yellow, Aqua, and Green, but a bit harder to pinpoint for the rest.
  • Long-Lost Relative: Pretty Bomber.
  • No Mouth: This applies to bombers in general, which becomes more noticeable with voice acting. However, it has been indicated that their mouths may be obscured by their helmets on at least one occasion.
  • Nonindicative Name: Despite being officially called the Bomberman Brothers, there are sisters in the group (albeit Outnumbered Siblings).
  • Power Copying: Due to them descending from Prototype Bomber, each sibling is capable of adapting and using the special abilities of almost any other bomber.
  • Ridiculously Human Robots: Seemingly varies. Earlier games taking place on Earth describe them as robots, but later on, when they seemed to become the population of Planet Bomber and ordinary humans were rarer, this became less clear. Super Bomberman R reconfirms that they are robotic life-forms.
  • Sibling Team: It's sometimes White and Black in Co-Op Multiplayer, but Super Bomberman R brings the other six to the main adventure.
  • Sleeves Are for Wimps: With the exception of White Bomber, none of the Bombermen typically wear any sleeves or leggings. In R, the women (including Pretty Bomber) also wear them.
  • Space Police: Defenders of the universe, even if it's mostly only White taking it seriously.
  • Throw Down the Bomblet: The most notable users of explosives in the series.
  • Vocal Evolution: During most of Hudson Soft's tenure, all Bombermen sounded alike (with the exceptions being in spinoffs like Panic Bomber and the animes). The voice was often high-pitched and scratchy, and would sometimes get replaced with slightly deeper or softer voices later on. In Super Bomberman R, they each have their own voices to suit their personalities.

Unknown to him, she's secretly his sister, Pretty Bomber. To their credit, he didn't recognize her at the time, and Pretty seemed to undergo Identity Amnesia of her family.
  • Cannot Talk to Women: In Super Bomberman R. While he's said to dislike girls, in truth, he's extremely shy around them.

  • Scarf Of Asskicking: In Bomberman Kart, Bomberman Generation, Bomberman Battles / Hardball, Bomberman Land 3, and Bomberman Land Portable.
  • The Slacker: According to the Super Bomberman R website, he tries to come across as the cool pragmatist, but in reality just wants an excuse to slack off.
  • Something About a Rose: His victory pose in Super Bomberman R.
  • Surfer Dude: Black tends to say "dude" a lot in the Land localizations.
  • Teleport Spam: Starts doing this after the four bombers are defeated in the TurboGrafx-16 Bomberman.

Blue Bomber

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/chara_ao.png
Debut: Bomberman (1990)
Voiced by: Kazuko Sugiyama (Super Bomberman 3, Super Bomberman 4, Super Bomberman 5, Bomberman 64 (Japanese), Bomberman World (Japanese), Bomberman Party Edition), Charles Adler, Billy West (Atomic Bomberman), Etsuko Kozakura (Bomberman B-Daman Bakugaiden), Lani Minella (Bomberman World (English; Atlus USA)), Karen Takahata (Bomberman 64 (English)), Hohko Kuwashima (Bomberman 64: The Second Attack!), Sheryl Stanley (Bomberman Generation (English; uncredited), Bomberman Jetters (English)), Tomoko Kawakami (Bomberman Generation (Japanese)), Tomoko Kaneda (Bomberman Jetters (Japanese), DreamMix TV World Fighters), Jeff Gedert (Super Bomberman R (English)), Genki Okawa (Super Bomberman R (Japanese))

The blue one.


  • Ball of Light Transformation: Periodically does this as part of the final fight in the TurboGrafx-16 Bomberman.
  • Brilliant, but Lazy: In Super R, he has a technological expertise which rivals Brain Bomber's, but it's overshadowed by his lethargy. The one time he's desperately needed by the others, he refuses until Green steps in and slyly suggests White would've gotten him Ultra-Luxury Soft-Sleep Pillows from Kaboomingdale's or Ultra-Powered Earplugs. Once his attention is gotten, however, he proceeds to brute force the password in less than ten seconds.
  • Dub Name Change: Kid Blue in the English Bomberman Land localizations.
  • Exhausted Eye Bags: In Super R, he has a perpetually drowsy expression in his eyes even for his victory pose and "shocked" expression in cutscenes.
  • Fantastically Indifferent: His reaction to Buggler converting the sun of the Starry Sky Solar System into a universe-swallowing black hole is to casually explain it to everyone, then fall back asleep.
  • Fragile Speedster: His Super Dash in Bomberman: Bakufuu Sentai Bombermen.
  • Genki Boy: In the Land series, in contrast to R.
  • In-Series Nickname: Ao Bom (Blue Bomb) in Japanese.
  • The Lancer: In the Bakugaiden anime series.
  • The Quiet One: For obvious reasons, he's adverse to loud people.
  • Scarf Of Asskicking: Only in Bomberman Generation.
  • Sleepyhead: In Super R, as part of Divergent Character Evolution, which seems to be taken from the visual gag in the Super 4 intro.

Green Bomber

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/chara_midori.png
Debut: Bomberman (1990)
Voiced by: Kazuko Sugiyama (Super Bomberman 3, Super Bomberman 4, Super Bomberman 5, Bomberman World (Japanese), Bomberman Party Edition), Charles Adler, Billy West (Atomic Bomberman), Kappei Yamaguchi (Bomberman B-Daman Bakugaiden), Lani Minella (Bomberman World (English; Atlus USA)), Karen Takahata (Bomberman Online), Sachiko Hara (Super Bomberman R (English)), Ayumu Murase (Super Bomberman R (Japanese))

  • Ball of Light Transformation: Periodically does this as part of the final fight in the TurboGrafx-16 Bomberman.
  • Blush Sticker: In Super R.

  • Face of an Angel, Mind of a Demon: His personality in Super R.
  • In-Series Nickname: Midori Bom (Green Bomb) in Japanese.
  • Levitating Lotus Position: Can do this in Bomberman: Bakufuu Sentai Bombermen.
  • Obsessed with Food: Yakiniku (western barbecue, especially burgers) in Super Bomberman R.
  • Put on a Bus: While he appears in the three TurboGrafx-16 games (which were five-player), he is properly excluded in the first two Super games (which were four-player despite the Multitap adding up the number of possible controllers to five). Two shades of green did appear in Super 2, through Palette Swaps, however. He returned as a full character for Super 3, 4, 5, and World, before going on yet another bus until DS and R.
    • The Bus Came Back: Finally, he returned as a playable character in Super Bomberman R where he is, once again, a full character.
  • Sensitive Guy and Manly Man: In Super Bomberman R, Green is the Sensitive Guy to White's Manly Man.
  • Shock and Awe: His Green Bomb in Bomberman: Bakufuu Sentai Bombermen.
  • The Smart Guy: Implied to a degree in Super R, where he convinces his older siblings to do his bidding, including convincing the normally-lazy Blue to help the bombers escape being sucked into cyberspace.
  • Smart People Wear Glasses: In the Land series.
  • Team Pet: Is called mascot on the Japanese Super R website.

Yellow Bomber

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/chara_ki.png
Debut: Bomberman (1990)
Voiced by: Charles Adler, Billy West (Atomic Bomberman), Mitsuaki Madono (Bomberman B-Daman Bakugaiden), Greg Dale (Super Bomberman R (English)), Yuki Yonai (Super Bomberman R (Japanese))

The happy-go-lucky one.


Pink Bomber

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/chara_pink.png
Debut: Bomberman '93 (1992)
Voiced by: Charles Adler, Billy West (Atomic Bomberman), Hiroko Konishi (Bomberman B-Daman Bakugaiden), Soness Stevens (Super Bomberman R (English), Mikako Komatsu (Super Bomberman R (Japanese))

The one with heart.


  • Action Girl: In Super Bomberman R, she fought alongside the Bomberman Bros. to defend and bring peace to the universe.
  • Ascended Extra: First appeared as an onlooker on the Bomberman '93 Battle Game victory screen.
  • Big Sister Instinct: Has an overbearing but ultimately altruistic personality in Super Bomberman R.
  • Composite Character: In Super R, through an odd mix of this and Decomposite Character, much of Pretty Bomber's design was transferred over to Pink Bomber, so that the Five Dastardly Bombers' Dark Chick member (now known as Sexy/Karaoke Bomber) could be made more overtly villainous. See "Five Dastardly Bombers" below for more info.
  • Cool Big Sis: In Super Bomberman R, she's this to Aqua and her younger siblings.
  • Dude Magnet: In one of the ending pictures in Super Bomberman R, she's shown to be singing with Pretty while the audience cheer for both of them, which means she and Pretty are shown to have multiple fans, including fanboys.
  • Idol Singer: Well, she may not be an idol, but she's apparently a good singer, contrasting a certain Dastardly Bomber.
  • In-Series Nickname: Pink Bom (Pink Bomb) in Japanese.
  • Pink Girl, Blue Boy: Pink Girl to White's Blue Boy. In Super R, her personality also seems closest to White in the sense that she actively wants to set an example (to their sister Aqua in particular).
  • Pink Means Feminine: Her body color is pink.
  • Plucky Girl: In Super Bomberman R, her personality defaults to this, since she's shown to actively listen to White really well. She's also shown to be brave, optimistic, level-headed, and more sensible than Aqua in that game. This might be due to Aqua being her little sister, and Aqua is mostly scared and worried most of the time when she is around fighting and violence (which she doesn't like), while Pink is older than her and acts more relaxed and laid-back.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: In Super Bomberman R, Pink is the Red to Aqua's Blue. Incidentally, their respective colors are lighter versions of red and blue. And that's saying something!
  • Sailor Fuku: Her collar in Super R is evocative of one.
  • She's Got Legs: Her poses in Bomberman: Bakufuu Sentai Bombermen.
  • Suspiciously Similar Substitute: She is not to be confused with Pretty Bomber, who became a playable regular in the Land games (and was even renamed Cute Pink in their localizations).
  • Tertiary Sexual Characteristics: Previously looked like a male Bomberman (due to former lack of differentiation between the main eight by more than color), but officially female in Bakugaiden, Sentai, and Super R (along with Aqua).
  • Tomboy and Girly Girl: In Super Bomberman R, Pink is the Tomboy to Aqua's Girly Girl. It's even reflected on how Pink doesn't wear a skirt, but Aqua does. It should be noted that Pink doesn't have eyelashes while Aqua has one eyelash on both her eyes, an ironic inverse between their color schemes.

Aqua Bomber

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/chara_mizu.png
Debut: Bomberman '93 (1992)
Voiced by: Charles Adler, Billy West (Atomic Bomberman), Issei Miyazaki (Bomberman B-Daman Bakugaiden), Hannah Grace (Super Bomberman R (English)), Minami Takahashi (Super Bomberman R (Japanese))

The baby blue one.


  • Ascended Extra: First appeared as an onlooker on the Bomberman '93 Battle Game victory screen.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: In Super Bomberman R, she's a sweet and soft-spoken pacifist most of the time. However, get her in a bad mood and she becomes a wild berserker. Magnet Bomber found this out the hard way.
    (normal): I can't take part in any violence...
    (angry): I said... ...no more... VIOLENCE!!!
  • Cute Clumsy Girl: In Bomberman Land Touch! 2.
  • The Dreaded: Even her bother Red is terrified of her when she's angry.
  • Dub Name Change: Acrobat Aqua in the English Bomberman Land Touch! 2 localization.
  • In-Series Nickname: Mizuiro Bom in Bomberman B-Daman Bakugaiden, Aqua Bom in the Japanese Touch! Bomberman Land: Star Bomber no Miracle World, and Mizu Bom in the Japanese Super Bomberman R setting, each effectively translating as Aqua Bomb (in reference to the color).
  • One Steve Limit: Not to be confused with Aqua Bomber of the Dark Force Bombers (that one is Aqua as in water).
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: In Super Bomberman R, Aqua is the Blue to Pink's Red, as stated in the entry above.
  • Reluctant Warrior: In R. Does not like violence whatsoever, but when push comes to shove...
  • Tertiary Sexual Characteristics: Originally had a standard cyan design in Hi-Ten, Super 2, Atomic, DS, Live, and Blast, but due to the paler complexion she got in Land Touch! 2, she was properly named Aqua and, as with Pink in Super R, identified female.
  • Textile Work Is Feminine: Apparently her hobby in Super Bomberman R.
  • Tomboy and Girly Girl: In Super Bomberman R, Aqua is the Girly Girl to Pink's Tomboy. As, once again, stated in the entry above.

     Heroic Bombers 

Friendly bombers who aren't the above.


Purple, Orange, and Brown Bombers

Debut: Bomberman '93 (1992), Super Bomberman (1993), Hi-Ten Bomberman (1993)
Voiced by: Charles Adler, Billy West (Atomic Bomberman; Purple, Orange), Yuichi Nagashima (Bomberman B-Daman Bakugaiden; Orange Bom), Rica Matsumoto (Bomberman B-Daman Bakugaiden; Purple), Hirohiko Kakegawa (Bomberman B-Daman Bakugaiden; Professor Brown/Shadow), Takehito Koyasu (Bomberman B-Daman Bakugaiden; Momite Bomber)
Three miscellaneous Bombermen not part of the Bomberman Bros.
  • Ascended Extra: Before all three became playable in Hi-Ten Bomberman, a purple Bomberman appeared an onlooker on the Bomberman '93 Battle Game victory screen (and numerous ones in the warehouse match stage border), and purple and orange Bombermen appeared in the background on the Super Bomberman Battle Mode victory screen.
  • Chuck Cunningham Syndrome:
    • After playable appearances in Hi-Ten, Super 2 (via Palette Swap), and Atomic (Orange and Purple only), they have since disappeared.
    • In the Bomberman B-Daman Bakugaiden anime, an elderly Orange Bom appears in the first episode as White's trainer, and a voluptuous Purple appears as Shuringe's Secret Identity. Additionally, Professor Brown/Shadow and Momite Bom are antagonistic, brown Bombermen in the same series.
  • Flat Character: Unlike the eight main bombers, these three were never subjected to Divergent Character Evolution within the canon of the games.
  • Heel–Face Revolving Door: In the games, all three of the Bombers' alignments are not clear, but are stated to be good. In the anime, both Purple and the two Browns are clearly villains (with Purple being The Mole and simply a disguise for the villain Shuringe).
  • No Name Given: They are presumably named after their colors like the others.
  • Nonstandard Character Design: Purple in Bomberman B-Daman Bakugaiden, since she is not actually a Bomberman.
  • Throw Down the Bomblet: As typical with a Bomberman.

Indy Bomber

Debut: Bomberman GB 2 (1995)

A treasure hunting Bomberman.


Cutie Bomber

Debut: Bomberman GB 3 (1996)

The only female scientist of the entire Bomber Nebula.


  • Gadgeteer Genius: She invented four models of the Motorbomber, which she supplies to Bomberman.
  • Expy: Role-wise, Dr. Ein fills in the void she left; design-wise, she gets one in the form of Cat Bomber in Neo Bomberman.
  • Implied Love Interest: She displays a Heart Symbol next to Bomberman in the ending.
  • Technical Pacifist: She's more than happy to aid Bomberman, but for a bomber, she's never actually seen using bombs.

Machbom

Debut: Bomberman Fantasy Race (1998)
Voiced by: Mizue Ohtsuka

Born to race.


Giant Gold

Debut: Bomberman Kart (2001)

An oversized, golden Bomberman who usually hangs with Blue and Green.


  • Decomposite Character: He's obviously based on the Golden Bomberman (aka Golden Bomber) status that originated in Super Bomberman 2, which was an aesthetic feature to denote who won the previous match.
  • Dub Name Change: Gold Bomber in Bomberman Battles / Hardball and the Japanese Bomberman Kart and Bomberman Land games, which isn't to be confused with the aforementioned Golden Bomber.
  • Fat Bastard: He's well-meaning, but somewhat self-centered.

Racer Bomber

Debut: Bomberman Kart (2001)

Also born to race.


  • Ambiguously Gay: His protectiveness towards White Bomber and lack of attraction to Pretty Bomber can be seen as this, which gets to its extreme when he told him not to rescue her in Land 2.
  • Big Brother Instinct: Very protective of White Bomber in Land 2.
  • Expy: Of Machbom.
  • Keet: Likes to bounce up and down a lot.
  • Manchild: Looks noticeably older than the others, is not any more mature.

     Other Allies 
Humanoids and others allied to the above. Bombs may or may not still apply.

Roois

Voiced by: Marina Ohno (Saturn Bomberman Fight!!, Bomberman Wars)

A bounty hunter who bosses around Kotetu.


  • Cowgirl: Sure dresses like one.
  • Guys Smash, Girls Shoot: To Kotetu. She wields a revolver while he uses a katana.
  • Only Six Faces: Astute fans have noticed her face has a striking resemblance to un-helmeted Pretty Bomber (seen in Hi-Ten artwork and the Super 3 password screen). They're also almost never in the same spot at once, and Honey can even use Pretty Bomber's bombs in Neo Bomberman, leading some to conclude she may be Clark Kenting; however, it is possible to have Honey and Pretty Bomber on-screen together in Bomberman Party Edition.
  • Plucky Girl: She apparently just barely scrapes by.
  • Promoted to Playable: Became a playable character in Saturn and Neo Bomberman after first appearing as an effect of the "Cosplay" power-up.
  • Revolvers Are Just Better: Honey's signature weapon.
  • Scarf Of Asskicking: A yellow one.

Voiced by: Takeshi Aono (Saturn Bomberman (Japanese), Bomberman Generation (Japanese)), Tony Carroll (Bomberman Generation (English; uncredited), Bomberman Jetters (English)), Kenichi Ogata (Bomberman Jetters (Japanese))

Bomberman's Mission Control.


  • Bishōnen: When he was younger, as seen in the Bomberman Jetters anime.
  • Expy: Of Dr. Mitsumori from the first TurboGrafx-16 game. He's even once claimed to be the creator of Bomberman in the Fantasy Race manual, implying he may be a redesigned Mitsumori.
    • Also to Dr. Grey Bomber from the Bakugaiden anime series.
  • I Was Quite a Looker: He was a very attractive guy in his younger years as shown in Bomberman Jetters.
  • Mission Control
  • The Professor: Sometimes called "Professor Ein" to match.
  • The Rival: To Buggler in Bomberman Jetters. Both he and Ein were fighting over the love for a female Bomberman named Momo, but she wasn't interested in either of them.
  • Spell My Name with an "S": Dr. I in Sega's translation of Saturn Bomberman.
  • We Used to Be Friends: To Buggler in the anime when they were kids. But after both fell in love with Momo, White Bomber's grandmother, they became sworn enemies.

Sirius

Debut: Bomberman 64 (1997)
Voiced by: Yasushi Miyabayashi (Japanese), Peter L. Zadraznik (English)

An ally of Bomberman during Bomberman 64. Or so it seems.


  • Demolitions Expert: He seems to know an awful lot about Bomberman and how to put his bombs to interesting uses.
  • Disintegrator Ray: If the first 100 Gold Cards are collected, he uses the Omni Cube as one against Altair and later attempts to do the same on Bomberman.
  • Evil All Along: He presents himself as Bomberman's ally and aids him in reaching Altair's fortress and battling its guardians only so that he could steal back his Omni Cube from Altair and use its power to conquer the universe. When his plan succeeds, he thanks Bomberman by putting "Destroy Planet Bomber" first on his list of things to do.
  • Foreshadowing: In the third level, he comments on how inefficiently Altair is using the Omni Cube. Most would assume this is just writing in a reason for why Bomberman has so much time to stop him. Turns out there's a reason Sirius has such an accurate gauge for how long it takes for the cube to drain a planet's life force.
  • Greater-Scope Villain: If the first 100 Gold Cards are collected, we find out he's worse than Altair.
  • It's Personal: Claims this reason for opposing Altair.
  • Load-Bearing Boss: His destruction causes the Rainbow Palace to fall, crashing directly into the Black Fortress and blowing them up in the process.
  • Spoiler Cover: Regardless of how effective his good guy façade would normally be, Hudson seemed hell-bent on letting the player know that this guy should not be trusted, both in the game's manual and in his first boss battle where he tests Bomberman's training, which Hudson chose to title "Friend or Foe?".

Princess Millian

Debut: Bomberman Hero (1998)

Princess of Primus Star, which neighbors Planet Bomber.


Pibot

Debut: Bomberman Hero (1998)

Princess Millian's robotic operating buddy.


Pommy

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/pommy_bt.png
Debut: Bomberman 64: The Second Attack! (1999)
Voiced by: Manami Nakayama (Bomberman 64: The Second Attack!), Sanae Kobayashi (Bomberman Generationnote )

A shape-shifting, electric-type Charabom. The (self-proclaimed) cutest hero in the galaxy, though somewhat cowardly when things get dangerous.


  • Acrophobic Bird: He reveals he's afraid of heights on Horizon, and depending on his evolution, he can be winged as well.

Lilith

Debut: Bomberman 64: The Second Attack! (1999)
Voiced by: Manami Nakayama

A red-haired adventurer who helps Bomberman during Bomberman 64: The Second Attack!. Also not what she seems.


  • Big Damn Heroes: She has her moments.
  • Did Not Get the Girl: It eventually turns out she and Rukifellth have a thing.
  • Dub Name Change: Lily in Japanese.
  • Happily Ever After: With Rukifellth in the good ending.
  • Heroes Want Redheads: Lilith's first encounter leaves Bomberman with Heart Eyes.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: Does one to prevent Bomberman and Pommy from being tricked by Zhael, though she survives due to Mihaele. Of course, given Bomberman's quizzical expression anyway, this could have been a Stupid Sacrifice.
  • Heroic Suicide/Together in Death: In the bad ending.
  • Interface Spoiler: The game displays her title, "The Scourge of the Spaceways," before she even gets a chance to say "Hi!"
    • The item shop still sells her attack guide, revealing that she will become a boss at some point.
  • Jump Physics: Does crazy jumps all the time in cutscenes. Oddly unutilized in her battle, though possibly due to Mihaele being unaccustomed to her body.
  • Light Is Not Good: The intentions of Mihaele (as Lilith) are revealed to be a little too extreme for Bomberman and Pommy.
  • Optional Boss: Will not be fought if the last two planets' gravity generators aren't destroyed due to Mihaele not yet having full possession, but this will result in the bad ending.
  • Rapid-Fire Fisticuffs: Would be as a One-Hit Kill, except unlike other bosses, it steers completionist players from the good ending to the bad ending.
  • Red Baron: Woman Warrior in Japanese and The Scourge of the Spaceways in English.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: Red Oni to Rukifellth's Blue Oni.
  • Spread Shot
  • Symbiotic Possession: The goddess Mihaele allows her to retain her free will, at least for a little while.

Voiced by: Duke Clement (Bomberman Generation (English; uncredited), Bomberman Jetters (English)), Ken Narita (Bomberman Generation (Japanese)), Hiroki Takahashi (Bomberman Jetters (Japanese))
A cyborg with plasma bombing abilities.
  • Brainwashed and Crazy: In Bomberman Tournament, he was captured by Brain Bomber and turned into an evil servant who worked on a Giant Mecha known as the "Ultimate Weapon".
  • The Bus Came Back: Returns in the Nintendo Switch version of Super R as DLC.
  • Emergency Transformation: During a fight with Brain Bomber, Max was badly wounded to the point where he was turned into a bomber cyborg to stay alive.
  • Expy: Of Black Bomberman and/or Regulus.
  • Foil: To Bomberman. While Bomberman tends to be more carefree, Max is stoic, serious, and sometimes arrogant. While Bomberman will usually do as he is told, Max tends to rush off and do things his own way.
  • Good Is Not Nice: His bio in Super Bomberman R states that he is utterly ruthless towards his enemies when protecting peace in the universe.
  • I Was Just Passing Through: Does this during certain boss battles in Bomberman Generation.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: He's arrogant and a loose cannon who refuses to follow orders, but he's willing to stop the bad guys and help Bomberman when necessary.
  • The Lancer: To Bomberman.
  • The Rival: To Bomberman, though most often it's a Friendly Rivalry.
  • Shock and Awe: With the exception of Bomberman Generation, Max's bombs are usually electric to differentiate from Bomberman.
  • Spell My Name with an "S": His name is MAX in Generation and Jetters. The latter due to it being his model code (Mighty Android - X (10)).

Professor Buggler
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/chara_e_buggler.png
Evil Emperor Buggler
Debut: Bomberman '94 (1993)
Voiced by: Hiroya Ishimaru (Bomberman: Panic Bomber), Naoki Tatsuta (Super Bomberman 4, Bomberman Fantasy Race), Ichirō Nagai (Bomberman World (Japanese)), Bomberman Wars), B. Glazebrook (Bomberman World (English; Atlus USA)), Mugihito (Bomberman Jetters (anime)), Michael Rhys (Super Bomberman R (English)), Kotaro Nakamura (Super Bomberman R (Japanese))

Bomberman's most persistent nemesis. In the games, he's affiliated with the Five Dastardly Bombers, the Bomber Shitennou, the Dark Force Bombers, and the Garaden Empire, whereas in the Bomberman Jetters anime he's the head of the Hige Hige Bandits.


  • Evil Sounds Deep: In Bomberman Hero and especially the Atlus localization of Bomberman World for PlayStation (inverted in the Japanese version and Bomberman Wars, where his voice is rather high-pitched).
  • High-Class Glass: Wears a monocle in his common design first seen in Super Bomberman 3.
  • Knight of Cerebus: Whatever game he is in, whenever he is on-screen, the stakes raise much higher, and the game's humor and cheerful nature drops dead.
  • Love Makes You Evil: His primary motivation in Jetters.
  • Made of Evil: He's apparently the physical manifestation of evil in the universe in Super Bomberman R.
  • Mad Scientist: He leads a robot army, and his most common character design used from Super Bomberman 3 to Bomberman Portable is sometimes referred to as Professor Buggler.
  • Make My Monster Grow: In Super Bomberman R, his special ability is to transform into Ultimate Buggler.
  • The Man Behind the Monsters: In Panic Bomber, he originally had the title of "Maou" (demon king), and his robot army is also composed of a variety of monsters.
  • Meaningful Name: His most recent name in R, Buggler, is a letter off from the British slang word "bugger", which is used to express dissatifaction or a reaction towards displeasing behavior. He has a British accent in R, and is also pretty much the Big Bad of the franchise.
  • Power Floats: Does this often.
  • Promoted to Playable: In Bomberman Fantasy Race.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: As Ultimate Buggler — or at least, his one visible eye. His monocle turns yellow.
  • Spell My Name with an "S": Buglear? Burglar? Bagular? It varies depending on the game and the translation.
  • Teleport Spam: He has the ability to teleport, and uses it often (most notably Bomberman World and Bomberman Hero). It's generally used as an alternative to the shields, as he teleports out of harm's way after setting bombs.
  • Throw Down the Bomblet: He'll often use bouncing rubber bombs to trick the player.
  • Unwitting Pawn: The events surrounding his resurrection and his attacks on Planet Bomber and Primus Star in Hero unknowingly further the plans of Devil Bomber in some manner.
  • Walking Spoiler: Not so much for the games, where his role in the plot is almost always obvious from the start, but in Bomberman Jetters, where he's the leader of the Hige Hige Bandits and ultimately a decent guy who's extremely bitter over an old rivalry with Dr. Ein.
  • We Used to Be Friends: With Dr. Ein in the anime when they were kids. After falling in love with Momo, however, they had a falling out and are now enemies.
  • Worthy Opponent: Shows signs of this towards Bomberman in Portable, where he states how impressed he is with how Bomberman defeats him and the progress he makes throughout the game.

Devil Bomber

Debut: Bomberman GB 3 (1996)

A discarded prototype who's too unruly for his creator.


  • Badass Cape: Had it in Bomberman GB 3, but lost it in Bomberman Hero in favor of bat-like wings.
  • Beta Test Baddie: Was created by Buggler like several other bombers, but was abandoned and imprisoned due to his temperament.
  • Dub Name Change: Evil Bomber in the English translation of Bomberman Hero, which is reused for a separate character in Bomberman Land Touch! 2.
  • Eviler Than Thou: To Buggler.
  • Fuuma Shuriken: May use two of them after his blaze attack.
  • Razor Wind: One of his special moves.
  • Sinister Scythes: Under extremely rare conditions, his wings turn into a burning scythe in Hero.
  • Throw Down the Bomblet: While he's never seen using bombs in battle, the 24 Adok bombs planted on four of the Bomber Nebula's planets belonged to him.

Atomic Bomber

Debut: Neo Bomberman (1997)

Buggler's latest creation and right-hand bomber in Neo Bomberman.


  • Bastard Understudy: Like Devil Bomber, he doesn't seem to have a whole lot of respect for his creator, although if his plan is to kidnap Pretty Bomber...can you blame him?
  • Battle Aura: In the Normal mode, he'll also generate a blast from his body, but it's just temporary invincibility in the Battle mode.
  • Expy: Of Bomber Great... His design is extremely similar, and he even has the same ability!

Bagulor

Debut: Saturn Bomberman Fight!! (1997)
Voiced by: Naoki Tatsuta

An oddball alien who misheard Buggler's name and decided to masquerade as him.


Babylon

Debut: Pocket Bomberman (1997)

A monster who blocks out the sun and has an uncanny resemblance to Buggler.


  • Evil Sorcerer: Uses magic in contrast to the professor's science.

     Five Dastardly Bombers 

Five villainous bombers who frequently antagonize Bomberman.


  • Ball of Light Transformation: All have demonstrated this ability in Super Bomberman 3 and Bomberman Tournament.
  • Brainwashed and Crazy: In Super Bomberman R, it's revealed the reason they're so, well, dastardly is because Buggler had complete control over them.
  • Evil Knockoff: Buggler modified them based on Bomberman. The whole plot of Super Bomberman 2 was for them to kidnap the original Bomberman.
  • Fusion Dance:
    • Everyone except Brain Bomber in Bomberman Tournament does this with a Charabom (against its will).
    • In Super Bomberman 3 and Super Bomberman R, all five members do this to create a giant mecha for Buggler.
  • Heel–Face Turn: In R, the entire gang does this in the final world after the defeat of Great Gattaida.
  • One Steve Limit: Their Japanese name, Kyoaku Bomber 5 Ninshuu (Dastardly Bomber 5), is similar to the criminals of Super Bomberman 5, the 8 Kyoaku Bombers.
  • The Psycho Rangers: To the Bomberman Bros. in Super Bomberman R.
  • Quirky Mini Boss Squad: The earliest example in the series. And easily the most notable/recurring.
  • Throw Down the Bomblet: Each has a specially-designed bomb, though they don't use them in every appearance.
  • Unlockable Content: After beating Super R's Story Mode, they can be purchased from the store.

Magnet Bomber

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/chara_e_magnetbom.png
Debut: Super Bomberman 2 (1994)
Voiced by: Jack Merluzzi (Super Bomberman R (English)), Tetsuya Yanagihara (Super Bomberman R (Japanese))

Often the first fought of the Dastardly Bombers.


  • The Baby of the Bunch: His tininess compared to the rest of the Dastardly Bombers combined with his tendency to easily get upset might imply he's the youngest out of the five of them.
  • Berserk Button: In R, he's extremely confident in his image as a threatening, powerful Dastardly Bomber. As a result, he immediately snaps at anyone undermining that.
  • Blatant Lies: When Bomberman confronts him in Tournament, he claims that he was the one who took out Max. The very first cutscene in the game shows that Plasma Bomber was responsible for defeating Max. NPCs at later points in the game prove that he didn't even defeat Max in their first invasion as that honor goes to Brain Bomber.
  • Brought to You by the Letter "S": Has "N" and "S" on his boxing gloves in R, presumably standing for the North and South poles of magnetism.
  • Cry Cute: His tiny frame and attempt at being threatening in R make his frustrated portraits, the ones with a small teardrop in his eye, apply to this.
  • Enemy Mine: Magnet Bomber's response when the Dastardly Bombers work with the Bomberman Bros. to stop Buggler and save the universe in Super Bomberman R.
  • The Napoleon: In R. Don't insult his height or call him Just a Kid.
  • Scarf Of Asskicking: Blue in most appearances, white in Super R.
  • Selective Magnetism: Can use magnetic powers to pull in only bombs, or sometimes Bomberman himself. His bombs are also magnetically charged to be attracted to the player character and nothing else.
  • Small Name, Big Ego: Is really cocky in his few speaking lines despite always being the first member of the Dastardly Bombers to fall to Bomberman.
  • Wake-Up Call Boss: In Super Bomberman R he's the first boss and the player's first exposure the the games ridiculously good boss AI, forcing players to adopt an actual strategy to defeat him unlike every single enemy up to that point.
  • Weapon of Choice: Magnet Bombs.
  • Would Hit a Girl: To Aqua Bomber in Super Bomberman R, which proves to be his undoing.

Golem Bomber

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/chara_e_golembom.png
Debut: Super Bomberman 2 (1994)
Voiced by: Hisao Egawa (Saturn Bomberman Fight!!), Jeff Gedert (Super Bomberman R (English)), Yoshiyuki Hirai (Super Bomberman R (Japanese))

The rock-solid, fiery member of the Dastardly Bombers.


  • The Big Guy: With superhuman strength to match, at least in Super Bomberman R.
  • Cyber Cyclops: In Super Bomberman R.
  • Defeat Means Friendship: He befriends Yellow after being defeated in R.
  • Flunky Boss: Summons zombie bombers in Tournament.
  • Friend to All Living Things: Saturn Bomberman Fight!! states that, surprisingly, he actually has a peaceful nature and loves animals. This is reaffirmed in Super Bomberman R.
  • Gentle Giant: He's not always giant, and he's not exactly gentle to Bomberman, but he's otherwise a pacifist. He also spares Yellow in his pre-boss cutscene because he brought flowers.
  • Irony: He dislikes anyone who would bring harm to nature despite being heavily aligned with the fire element and serving under Buggler, who occasionally drifts into Omnicidal Maniac territory. Somewhat justified in that Golem Bomber is occasionally brainwashed or simply played as Dumb Muscle.
  • Mobile-Suit Human: Er, Mobile-Suit Bomber, in Super Bomberman R.
  • Our Ghosts Are Different: His fusion form in Tournament is a ghost with his computerized eyes. He's capable of spitting fire, summoning zombies, and casting thunderbolts which makes the zombies explode.
  • Playing with Fire: All of his robots/transformations use at least one fire based attack besides his bombs.
  • Robo Speak: In Japanese, his dialog is sometimes written in katakana, and he has a limited vocabulary.
  • Weapon of Choice: Golem Bombs which are too heavy for anyone other than himself to move.

Pretty Bomber

Pretty Bomber
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/chara_e_karaokebom.png

Voiced by: Kazuko Sugiyama (Super Bomberman 3, Bomberman Party Edition), Marina Ohno (Bomberman Fantasy Race), Haruhi Terada (Bomberman Jetters (anime)), Carolyn Miller (Super Bomberman R (English)), Hitomi Harada (Super Bomberman R (Japanese, credits))

The lone female in the Dastardly Bombers. She's a bit of a brat most of the time, but she does have her good moments. She goes by the name Karaoke Bomber in Super Bomberman R at first.


  • Action Girl: Sometimes.
  • Badass Cape: As Karaoke Bomber.
  • Brother–Sister Incest: She flirts very suggestively with Black Bomber in R even though he's her brother. Justified and subverted, though, as Pretty didn't appear to remember her family when meeting them at Planet Lalaland, and she's wholeheartedly welcomed back as the eldest sister at the end of the game.
  • The Cameo: Has a couple, such as in an episode of Bomberman Jetters.
  • Spoiled Brat: In the Land series and Super Bomberman R.
  • Tsundere: According to her profile on Bomberman Land Wii, "She's quite self-centered, but has a really kind heart!"

Brain Bomber

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/chara_e_phantombom.png
Debut: Super Bomberman 2 (1994)
Voiced by: Vinay Murthy (Super Bomberman R (English)), Hozumi Gouda (Super Bomberman R (Japanese))

The brains of the Dastardly Bombers. Renamed Phantom Bomber in Super Bomberman R.


  • Big Bad: Of Bomberman Tournament.
  • Brainwashing: To Max in Tournament.
  • The Chessmaster: In Tournament he reviews how the Dastardly Bombers' failed invasion of Phantarion went and devises a new strategy which counters and shuts down the inhabitants' resistance, leaving the planet for easy pickings. This strategy works so well that the Dastardly Bombers end up having full control of the planet for over a year before Bomberman finally shows up to thwart them. And even then he planned for such interference and even succeeded in taking down Max when he was sent first. He even adds a brainwashed Max to said contingency knowing full well that Bomberman would follow.
    • Towards the end of Super Bomberman R he manages to figure out a way to turn Buggler's own black hole against him after his Heel–Face Turn.
  • The Cracker: Is stated to be one in Super Bomberman R.
  • The Dragon: Apparently the second-in-command as he was the only one other than Plasma Bomber to lead the team, and always the last one to be fought before Plasma Bomber when he isn't the leader (with Super R being the sole exception).
  • The Dreaded: Various characters in Tournament refer to him as a cruel and terrifying monster.
  • Evil Genius: His bio on the official Super Bomberman R website states that he may be even smarter and more cunning than Buggler.
  • Expy: His fight in Tournament borrows a lot of elements from Buggler.
  • Mad Scientist: He used a giant robot based on White Bomber in Super Bomberman 2, and was in the process of making the Ultimate Weapon in Bomberman Tournament. Additionally, the manga in the Japanese Super Bomberman 2 Hudson Koushiki Guidebook credits him with inventing the remote-controlled bombs.
  • Power Floats: Whether it's due to mental power or technology is unknown.
  • The Strategist: Considers himself the strategic mastermind. His actions in Tournament seem to back this claim.
  • Took a Level in Badass: And HOW. He goes from an absolutely laughable boss in Super Bomberman 2 (see Zero-Effort Boss below) to the final boss of Tournament and a reasonable threat even without the use of a giant robot or Charabom fusion.
  • Trap Master: Apparently in Super Bomberman R.
  • Weapon of Choice: Remote Bombs in Super Bomberman 2. Bouncy Bombs in Bomberman Tournament. Phantom Bombs in Super Bomberman R.
  • Zero-Effort Boss: In Super Bomberman 2 he moves very slowly and his bombs are at the weakest power and blast radius possible. Of course, his mech from the second phase averts this.

Plasma Bomber

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/chara_e_plasmabom.png
Debut: Super Bomberman 2 (1994)
Voiced by: Chris Koprowski (Super Bomberman R (English)), Yuto Uemura (Super Bomberman R (Japanese))
The electric, level-headed Dastardly Bomber.
  • Curb-Stomp Battle: Delivers one to Max in the Tournament opening cutscene.
  • Don't Make Me Destroy You: Tries to pull this off in Super Bomberman R, arguing that Bomberman will one day end up in his shoes.
  • Heel–Face Door-Slam: He attempts to befriend Bomberman after his defeat in Super Bomberman 2, but is killed by his own machine.
    • Subverted in Super R; a similar scene plays out where Buggler backstabs Plasma Bomber, but he manages to survive this time, which results in a happier ending.
  • The Leader: Almost always the person leading the Dastardly Bombers.
  • My God, What Have I Done?: In Super Bomberman R, he realized that he was made to protect mankind.
  • Noble Demon: Implied in Super Bomberman 2 and stated in Super Bomberman R.
  • Pet the Dog: In Super Bomberman R, he, along with the other Dastardly Bombers, assisted the Bomberman Bros. during the final battle between Ultimate Buggler.
  • Real Men Wear Pink: He utilizes Freezer Venus in Super Bomberman 3, which looks like a giant princess.
  • Scarf Of Asskicking: A red, white, or orange neckerchief.
    • An electric one in Super Bomberman R.
  • Shout-Out: His robot from Super Bomberman R, Judge Gwinbee, is styled and named after one of the ships from Twinbee, another Konami property.
  • Super Supremacist: According to Super Bomberman R, he likes robotic life-forms but hates organic life-forms. He eventually regains his senses when he remembers he was built to protect mankind.
  • Weapon of Choice: Plasma Bombs.
  • What Measure Is a Non-Human?: His contempt for organic life stems from him and his fellow robots being scrapped. Buggler accentuated this thought when he revived Plasma Bomber to make him outright hate organics.
  • Winged Humanoid: In Bomberman Tournament as Plasma Roc.
  • Worthy Opponent: Views Bomberman as such and wishes to defeat him in fair combat out of respect for his abilities.
  • Would Hurt a Child: Tries to harm the child of one of Planet Scrapheap's workers after his boss fight. Subverted as he quickly realizes he was built to protect humanity, children included.

  • The Dragon: To Altair.
  • I Have the High Ground: He waits for Bomberman on an impossibly narrow peak. In the good ending credits, he messes this iconic scene up as one of the bloopers.

  • Blood Knight: His only interests are fighting strong opponents and getting stronger. In fact, this, along with settling his score with Bomberman, is the only reason he even worked for the possessed Rukifellth in the first place.
  • Boss Subtitles: Dark Sigh in Japanese and The Black Breath in English.
  • Dark Is Neutral: Has dark powers and a black colour scheme, but he usually serves his own interests.
  • Do Not Call Me "Paul": Acts this way towards all who refer to him by his old name, Regulus. Subverted in the good ending, where he eschews his identity as the Astral Knight Regulus and resumes his life as the Elemental Knight Regulus.
  • Dragon with an Agenda: To Rukifellth.
  • Dub Name Change: Beelzebul in Japanese.

Rukifellth

Debut: Bomberman 64: The Second Attack! (1999)
Voiced by: Shoh Hayami
The BHB Army Leader, a space pirate who managed to control the Astral Knights.
  • Peek-a-Bangs: Covers where his right eye would be; he might just be cycloptic, though his artwork is mirrored in the manual.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: His visible blue eye flashes red whenever he says something dramatic to the audience. This signifies he's Not Himself.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: Blue Oni to Lilith's Red Oni.
  • Taking You with Me: In the bad ending, Sthertoth repossesses Rukifellth and self-destructs the Warship Noah in a last-ditch effort to win.
  • Thinking Out Loud: Has a tendency to do this after his meetings. In the good ending credits, one of the bloopers shows him realizing it's not fun without anyone listening, then he laughs anyway.

  • Genie in a Bottle
  • Ring Out: He's the boss of Ring Match Rule so this is a given.

     Crush Bombers 

Hired guns who are ordered to retrieve the coveted Bomb Elements in Bomberman Generation.


  • The Rival: Ein tells Bomberman that they are "our rivals", so they apparently have some sort of history with the BOMB Research Laboratory.
  • Spell My Name with a "The": All members except Bomber Elite refer to themselves in this way, with Beauty Bomber calling herself "the mistress Beauty Bomber" and Assault Bomber calling himself "the master Assault Bomber".
  • Throw Down the Bomblet: As with most bombers.

Megaton Bomber

Debut: Bomberman Generation (2002)
Voiced by: Tooru Ookawa (Japanese)

The strength of the Crush Bombers.


  • Epic Flail: His main weapon.
  • Expy: Of Hammer Bomber from Super Bomberman 4.
  • Flat Character: Other than he's really strong and dumb as rocks, there's nothing interesting about him. The Japanese dub also doesn't emphasize these traits as much as the English dub, making him even more uninteresting.
  • Red Baron: The "Strength" of the Crush Bombers.
  • Rhino Rampage: One of his attacks involves charging at you at a high speed.
  • Shockwave Stomp: When half of his health is depleted, he hits the ground with his flail, making a shock wave that not only stuns and damages Bomberman (about one big Heart), but also makes him drop whatever bombs he is carrying at the moment, including Big Bombs.

Beauty Bomber

Debut: Bomberman Generation (2002)
Voiced by: Satomi Koorogi (Japanese)

The red jewel of the Crush Bombers.


  • Ass Kicks You: Her main method of sending bombs after you is to hit them with her butt, which sends them bouncing after you.
  • Expy: Of Lady Bomber from Super Bomberman 4.
  • Fem Bot: Though it's not clear whether she's purely a robot or not, this trope still counts, as she has a... very noticeable female chest.
  • Impossibly Cool Weapon: Controls a trio of floating laser rockets that serve as mobile teleportation devices, produce protective light barriers, and weapons for attacking the player at will.
  • Noblewoman's Laugh: Does this in her introduction.
  • Red Baron: The "Symbol of Love and Beauty" and the "Red Jewel" of the Crush Bombers.
  • The Smurfette Principle: The only female member of the Crush Bombers, and the only female character in Bomberman Generation as a whole.
  • Sore Loser: After she is defeated, she'll throw a tantrum and complain "This really stinks!" before exploding.

Eagle Bomber

Debut: Bomberman Generation (2002)
Voiced by: Kenyuu Horiuchi (Japanese)

The blue falcon of the Crush Bombers.


  • Animal Motifs: The Eagle. His helmet visor is shaped like a beak, and he can fly.
  • Bishōnen: His model somewhat invokes this trope.
  • Death from Above: One of his moves has him fly over the stage and carpet bomb a large area.
  • Evil Laugh: Does one of these from time to time.
  • Expy: Of Jet Bomber from Super Bomberman 4.
  • Jet Pack: Sports one of these, complete with wings of silver.
  • Meaningful Name: Named after the eagle, a type of predatory bird (See 'Animal Motifs').
  • Red Baron: The "Prince of the Wind" and the "Blue Falcon" of the Crush Bombers.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: Has a pair of red eyes, and is a villain.
  • Wrestler in All of Us: One of his moves involve using an airborne piledriver on you, if you get caught while he's flying around the arena.

Assault Bomber

Debut: Bomberman Generation (2002)
Voiced by: Tamotsu Nishiwaki (Japanese)

The reaper of the Crush Bombers.


  • Ax-Crazy: It's been made VERY clear that he is absolutely unhinged. From his psychotic attacks, his entrance in a freaking giant meteor, his maniacal laughter, to his deploying bombs that could level a small town with no semblance of accuracy, and trying to pump Bomberman full of lead, you could tell that he has more than just a few screws loose...
  • Blood Knight: There's a reason why he's called the "Reaper" of the Crush Bombers.
  • Cyber Cyclops: Has only one visible eye.
  • Expy: Of Bazooka Bomber from Super Bomberman 4
  • Large Ham: To the point where he could give Mujoe a run for his money.
  • Meaningful Name: Assault Bomber
  • Red Baron: The "Reaper" of the Crush Bombers.
  • There Is No Kill Like Overkill: Assault Bomber seems to love this trope, from his psychotic attack patterns, to his entrance in which he enters the arena in a giant meteor that crashes into the center of the arena then explodes.
  • Trigger Happy: The first thing he does when meeting Bomberman was empty a whole cartridge of ammunition while trying to shoot him. And then he proceeds to carpet-bomb the place during his boss battle.

Bomber Elite

Debut: Bomberman Generation (2002)
Voiced by: Akira Ishida (Japanese)

The leader of the Crush Bombers.


  • Ball of Light Transformation: He enters the arena in this manner.
  • Battle Aura: Most of the time he's surrounded by a bluish aura that protects him until he does a certain attack, after which it drops and leaves him vulnerable.
  • Big, Bulky Bomb: What sets him apart from other Bombermen is that he only deploys Big Bombs. Which can make his boss battle a bit difficult since he has a tendency to make them invisible and you happen to discover one of those bombs...
  • Crossdressing Voices: Is voiced by a female voice actor, despite being male. It's especially noticeable in the English dub, causing people to see the character as a girl.
  • Disappears into Light: How he's defeated compared to the other Crush Bombers.
  • Energy Ball: Two of his attacks invoke this trope - one is a large, dark energy ball that sucks in everything and grows over time before exploding. The second has him create four energy balls surrounded by psychic electrical fields that cover almost the entire stage.
  • Expy: Of Bomber Great from Super Bomberman 4. Both wear a Badass Cape and have a Battle Aura ability that makes them invincible.
  • Friendly Enemy: Despite being on the opposite side, Bomber Elite is a lot nicer than his fellow Crush Bombers and notably less hostile towards Bomberman. He will even ask if he's okay after doing a really powerful attack, and apologize and say he'll take it easier on him next time if he wins the fight early.
  • Just Toying with Them: At first. He uses the bare minimum of his powers on Bomberman for his own amusement. However, once his health is down to one heart...
    • I Am Not Left-Handed: He'll pull out all the stops and his boss difficulty ramps up several times over. His attacks become a lot harder to avoid as well.
  • Larynx Dissonance: Though Bomber Elite is clearly voiced by a woman in English, the character is referred to in dialogue as "he". (Elite's Japanese voice is male, although one with a softer and lighter tone (as seen in this NicoNico video at around 1:50). It should also be noted that Japanese Elite uses the male-associated first-person pronoun boku.)
  • Last-Name Basis: The only Crush Bomber to do so.
  • Me's a Crowd: Able to produce two identical clones that also wield psychic powers. You won't be able to spot the real one unless you throw a bomb at them.
  • Mind over Matter: Most of the things he does are based on this.
  • Occult Blue Eyes: Has blue eyes, and wields supernatural powers not found in any Bomberman character.
  • Power Floats: Because of his psychic powers, he often levitates across the floor instead of actually walking. Once his health is at one heart, he starts rising into the air through psychokinesis.
  • Psychic Children: His voice seems to indicate he's young, though we never find out his age.
  • Sucking-In Lines: One of Bomber Elite's attacks involves this trope; he makes an Energy Ball that tries to draw in Bomberman before it explodes. Luckily, he gives off a warning while this happens.
  • Worthy Opponent: Sees Bomberman as this since he expresses joy at being defeated before fading away. It is slightly implied that many others have tried to defeat him in the past, but they all failed. He'll even quietly plead that he's "so lonely" if he wins the fight late.

  • The Stoic: Outwardly.

  • Nonhuman Humanoid Hybrid: No. 398's daughter is half Hige Hige (she has the father's facial structure and eye shape) and half-alien (from the mother).

  • Adaptation Species Change: Everyone has been turned into a bomber, complete with the helmets and No Mouth.
  • Art Shift: All of them are drawn in the cartoony style of Super Bomberman R.

Smuggler

A mysterious, shady, robot who markets and sells Balloms as pets. His attempt to create artificial scarcity to drive up the prices leads to the Balloms absorbing negative emotions from the population and going berserk as a result.


  • Capitalism Is Bad: He's certainly lacking in morality and perfectly willing to just leave Planet Bomber in chaos after pinching every penny he can from its residents. The main cast gets rather Anvilicious in calling out just how scummy and amoral his practices are.
  • Corrupt Corporate Executive
  • Karmic Death: He's crushed and consumed by the monstrosity that formed when the Balloms he hid in his warehouse merged into one massive one.
  • Never My Fault: He blames the citizens of Planet Bomber for having so much negative emotions which the Balloms absorbed leading to them going berserk. Even though he was directly responsible for these emotions existing in the first place due to him hiding his stock to artificially inflate demand and profits.
  • Precision F-Strike: He drops the only instance of swearing in the game. Granted its just the word "damn."
  • We Hardly Knew Ye: He only appears at the very end of World 7 before he is crushed and consumed by the Marbled Ballom. Though he may or may not have survived after the creature is defeated.

Vic Viper Bomber

A Super-Dimensional Bomberman from the Planet Gradius.

An ace fighter in the Gradius Space Force, he spends night and day battling to ward off the invading Bacterian Army. Once he learned of Planet Bomber's peril, however, he came to offer his aid.

  • Guest Fighter: From Gradius
  • Signature Move: Speed-Up, which makes him dash to the other end of the arena at high speeds.

Option Bomber

An Automated Support Bomberman, developed on Planet Gradius to assist Vic Viper Bomber.

Its data-linking capabilities allow it to lock on to Vic and follow him with precise accuracy, shadowing his movements and performing simultaneous attacks to help him annihilate enemies.

It isn't really self-aware, and as a result can be very stubborn, but what it lacks in flexibility it makes up for in loyalty and ability to follow orders.


  • Determinator: Because of its programming, Option Bomber isn't self aware and is extremely stubborn and inflexible when it comes to carrying out orders.

Simon Belmont Bomber

A vampire-hunting Bomberman from the Planet Castlevania.

He is the heir to the Vampire Killer, a sacred whip passed down through the Belmont Clan. As well as his trusty whip, he's also a deft hand with a range of other weapons—bombs included, of course.

He and the Belmont Clan are eternal nemeses, locked in an ongoing battle through the ages.

  • Evil Overlord: Seems to lead the villains from the Big Bang Tournament and explicitly states that he plans to use the tournament as a means to crown himself ruler of the universe.

Alucard Bomber

A half-vampire Bomberman, born to Dracula Bomber. He possesses his father's incredible dark powers and his mother's gentle heart.

He possesses an immortal body and fearsome super-strength, and the blade of the great knife that he drags behind him is almost as long as he is tall. For this blood-curdling executioner, even the other horrific creatures that inhabit Planet Silent-Hill are no more than prey for the taking.
