While on fire, he is invincible, and will detonate bombs on contact. After some time, he will stop and revert to his ordinary form.

Super Bomberman R
In Super Bomberman R, Blue Bomber is a playable character. He is the laziest of his siblings; he is extremely lethargic at all times and often asks for just "5 more minutes..." However, underneath all of that lethargy secretly lies a skilled technological hacker. Blue Bomber demonstrates this hidden ability on Planet Brainwave by deactivating the encrypted code pad and saving the planet from collapsing into cyberspace, at least after being sufficiently motivated by Green Bomber. In Story Mode, Battle Mode and Grand Prix, Blue Bomber can be seen sleeping with a pillow, used as an idle animation. If he waits too long, he falls asleep a little.
In the Bomberman Land series and related games, Blue Bomber makes an appearance alongside Green Bomber. Together, they idolize Gold Bomber. While his name is unchanged in Japanese versions, English localizations refer to him as Kid Blue.
- Blue Bomberman and White Bomberman are the only members of the Bomberman Bros. to have the same squared buckles on their belts in the game.
- Blue's technological genius in Super Bomberman R could be a nod to the B-Daman series where Blue Bomber is also a technological genius there.
- In previous Bomberman games, Blue Bomberman's belt was colored pink, but this was changed to a red color in newer games. The character model in Bomberman Generation shows Blue using his pink belt, while Black Bomberman and Red Bomberman share their purple belts.
