Bomberman Wiki

The Flickering Soft Block (点滅ソフトブロック) is a trap that appears in Super Bomberman and Super Bomberman 5. Though it was not specifically named until the release of the Super Bomberman 5 Hudson Soft Guidebook, it is the only trap that appears in the Normal Game of Super Bomberman.


All of the Flickering Soft Blocks in a stage periodically disappear and reappear from sight simultaneously. This can cause confusion for players because the Blocks still behave normally while they are invisible. However, a small shadow is still cast by each Block when it disappears.

It features the exact same properties as a standard Soft Block whether visible or not (it can be destroyed with Bomb blasts, exits and items can still be uncovered, passed through with Wall Pass, and enemies that have the pass through abilities work still normally).
