Dave Bomber (デイブボンバー (Deibubonbā) in Japanese) is a boss from Super Bomberman 5 and is one of the members of the Fiendish Bombers. Dave is a morbidly obese character with a black hat and a tie. Along with Gary Bomber, he is a reckless character who ran the underworld of Planet Bomber before being imprisoned in Bomber Prison. He is one of the bosses of Zone 2.
