Bomber Akindo, inconsistently dubbed Merchant Bomber or Merchant Bomberman in the Atlus translation, is a Bomberman who takes on the role of a merchant. He first appeared in Bomberman World.

Bomberman World

In Bomberman World, Bomber Akindo is a selectable character in Battle Mode. He tends to ignore opponents and focus on collecting as many items as possible.

Bomberman Wars

In Bomberman Wars, Bomber Akindo is not a playable character. Instead, he sells items to the Bomber King in the Reception Hall of Bomber Castle. Items can be purchased with the coins that are earned in battles.


  • The name Bomber Akindo is transliterated in the European manual for Bomberman World as well as the original Japanese versions of Bomberman World and Bomberman Wars. Akindo is a Japanese term for a merchant.
  • Strangely, in the North American manual, Merchant Bomber's name is the only one that is accurately translated, as the other characters' names were changed from "Bomber [Name]" to "[Name] Bomberman" (e.g. "Bomber Hero" to "Hero Bomberman"). However, the game itself still announces him as "Merchant Bomberman".
