Bomberman Wiki

Gapukapu (ガプカプ, Gapukapu) is an enemy in Saturn Bomberman.


Gapukapu is found in Amusement World. It is a pirate alligator. It moves at a slow pace until the player moves within 3 tiles to approach, then it becomes very angry and starts chasing the player for seven seconds. It will harm the player on collision. It takes 1 hit to defeat and yields a score of 200 points.


  • The name "Gapukapu" comes from the Japanese words "gapu", meaning "bite", and "kapu", meaning "threat". So Gapukapu could translate to "Biting Threat"; this is further empathized that Gapupaku starts off as calm, but when the player gets too close to Gapukapu, it gets angered and chases the player trying to bite them. And since Gapukapu is a pirate alligator with a bad temper regarding personal space, it's a common factor that alligators and similar species bite humans and animals when they are too close.
