This page is about the original Bomb Man. For his NetNavi counterpart, see BombMan.EXE.
"Not looking your usual cool self, Guts Man-- Fighting, fireworks, festivals... That's where it's at!"
―Bomb Man, Mega Man Powered Up
"Idiot! Bombs aren't toys! Timing it right, lighting the fuse -- that's the stuff you gotta leave to pros!"
―Bomb Man, Mega Man Powered Up

Bomb Man (ボンバーマン Bonbāman, lit. "Bomberman"?) is a Robot Master from the original Mega Man series. He was created by Dr. Light for demolition and land development, blasting away debris so that land could be cleared for construction projects, working in tandem with Guts Man. His Special Weapon is the Hyper Bomb -- very powerful explosives originally used for land reclamation and destroying abandoned buildings.

Bomb Man's personalty depicts him to be that of a teenager. (Possibly, a nod to his mohawk.) He enjoys fighting and is an expert in demolitions, being able to quickly create and throw Bombs with startling accuracy, capable of destroying most targets with ease. However, he also enjoys firework displays, festivals, and ten-pin bowling. He is also a daredevil and his attitude depicts it, but he can be a bit wasteful on money and his bombs and has a dislike for a match or lighter, possibly a relation to his weakness, the Fire Storm. Bomb Man is a playable character in both Mega Man Powered Up and Mega Man's Soccer.

Video game appearances

Mega Man

Dr. Wily reprogrammed Bomb Man and Dr. Light's other industrial robots to help him conquer the world. Bomb Man appears as a boss that Mega Man must battle, so Mega Man defeats him and obtains his Hyper Bomb. He is weak to Fire Man's Fire Storm.

Strategy

His strategy is nothing special. He will just jump around the room and throw Hyper Bombs at Mega Man. Know that he usually jumps away from Mega Man instead of towards him.

Mega Man Powered Up

As a remake of the first game, Bomb Man appears as a boss, but he becomes a playable character if he is defeated by Mega Man using only the Mega Buster. As a playable character, Bomb Man can throw his Hyper Bomb in several angles.

Strategy

Bomb Man fights in a similar way he did in the original game. During the fight, Bomb Man uses a critical attack. If he says, "That's a bit harsh," that means he will throw a big bomb directly at the player's character. If he says "I'll show you," that means he is going to throw a big bomb; however, it will bounce across the room rather than explode upon direct contact. To dodge the directed throw bomb, just get out of the way when Bomb Man throws it. To dodge the bouncing bomb, just run under it when it is high in the air. In normal mode, he starts using the huge bomb after losing half of his energy. In hard mode, Bomb Man throws two Hyper Bombs at the same time and the large bomb attack is available from the beginning of the battle. He is weak to Cut Man's Rolling Cutter.

Mega Man's Soccer

Bomb Man is a balanced player that doesn't have his own team. In Tournament mode, he is a member of the Fire Man, Elec Man, Pharaoh Man, Dust Man, Skull Man and Wily teams. In League mode, he is a member of the Fire Man and Skull Man teams.

Super Adventure Rockman

If Mega Man is defeated by Magnet Man, Bomb Man will appear to save him, giving the player the chance to fight against Magnet Man again.

Chokkan! Rockman

In the mini-game Bomb Wars, Mega Man must defeat Bomb Man before time runs out. Bomb Man is in a high position out of reach and keeps dropping bombs. Mega Man must throw the bombs back to Bomb Man to damage him.

Rockman Strategy

Bomb Man appears in Rockman Strategy as a recurring boss and optional teammate. He first appears in Aries' Steelmaking Factory along with Flame Man, and reappears in Dimensional Space when the player is facing the Wily Capsule. Here, he joins Sword Man, Skull Man, and Aqua Man in defending Dr. Wily.

Trivia

  • From the six Robot Masters of the first Mega Man game, Bomb Man is the one with least appearances in games. Bomb Man (along with Fire Man) did not appear in any of the arcade titles. Also, he (along with Guts Man) did not appear in the first Game Boy title, Mega Man: Dr. Wily's Revenge. However, as Guts Man appeared in Capcom Quiz: Hatena? no Daibouken, Bomb Man is the only Robot Master from the first four NES games to not appear in a Game Boy title.
  • Bomb Man is the only Robot Master from the first game not to appear as a boss in Rockman xover.
  • Bomb Man's Japanese name is literally translated as "Bomberman", though he is still commonly referred to as "Bomb Man" in Japan. Mega Man's Soccer is the only instance of Bomb Man being referred to as "Bomberman" within a game.
  • Although in the Mega Man comic, while Bomb Man mentions he exhausted all of his Hyper Bombs after helping Mega Man to destroy the Boobeam Trap, he has an unlimited amount of them when fought as a boss in any game or as a playable character in Mega Man Powered Up.
  • Also in the Mega Man comic, Bomb Man referred to his hatred to Cut Man's puns once in Issue 23 and again in Issue 29, making him one of the only Robot Masters, along with Time Man to reflect to his puns the most.
  • A mass produced enemy based of Bomb Man was designed for the first game to go along with Sniper Joe, a mass produced model who's based of Proto Man
