The Alarm Device (警報装置) is a trap that first appeared in Super Bomberman 4. It functions as a Soft Block, but is impassable even to players who have the Wall Pass.

Once the Alarm Device has been destroyed with an explosion, the alarm will sound and all of the enemies in the stage will speed up and begin to utilize the same player-seeking movement pattern. In Super Bomberman 4, enemies will constantly pursue the player,[1] while in Super Bomberman 5, enemies will only turn upon colliding with a wall or bomb, and will move toward players that they line up with horizontally or vertically.
