Defense System artwork from the Super Bomberman 3 manual

The Defense System (防御システム) is a trap that appears in some Bomberman games. It consists of two antennas, which act as Hard Blocks, that appear one tile space apart from each other. Periodically, the antennas will flash, and then an electric current will pass between them. Any player who is hit by the electric current will take damage.
