Baketama moves at a slow pace, only turning upon collision with a wall or bomb. It tends to turn in a consistently clockwise or counterclockwise direction. It will harm the player on collision.
Upon defeat, Baketama becomes a biological Egg.
When riding Baketama, if the player walks into a bomb (as if to kick it), that bomb will transform into a fake Soft Block, resetting its fuse. When the fake Soft Block begins to flicker, it will shortly explode as a normal bomb would. This ability can be used to confuse opponents in Battle Mode.
