Faroh (ファラー, Fara, in Japan) is an enemy in the Bomberman series. It is a humanoid monster that appears to be a pharaoh. It appears in hot areas, in deserts or rocky places.
Faroh moves at a normal pace, pursuing the player. When it comes within about two tilespaces of the player, it will turn around and move away from the player for about four seconds before returning to its seeking pattern. Every now and then, Faroh will begin to breathe fire for a while. The fire extends two tiles in front of the enemy and will damage players and detonate bombs on collision. The Pharaoh itself will also harm players. It takes one blast to destroy a Faroh.
In Bomberman World, Faroh reappears on Planet Fire. It moves slowly, changing direction every 4 tiles. If the player is within range, they will stop and spray a 4-tile blast of fire at him. This fire will not detonate bombs.
In Bomberman Tournament, the fire angles diagonally when the Faroh turns.
