Bakebake is one of the last enemies in most the games of this series, except in the Virtual Boy version. It drops blocks quickly onto its field.
In Super Bomberman - Panic Bomber W, it is the last non-boss enemy to appear. It piles up blocks into high stacks on the left and right sides of his field, and uses the middle area to create combos.
The name "Bakebake" probably derives from the Japanese word "obake", meaning "ghost".
According to the Japanese manual for the Virtual Boy version of Panic Bomber, Bakebake loves hot springs.
