Oh, it's me that's burning? Oh, OK! I guess that means I don't have to be afraid of fire then! Ha ha!

Grein, Bomberman Quest

Grein (グレイン Gurein) is a recurring enemy in the Bomberman series. It is a fire spirit that appears in hot or rocky areas.

Description[]

Super Bomberman 3[]

In Super Bomberman 3, Grein appears on Planet Fire. It moves slowly, turning randomly at corners. It tends to stay around the same part of the screen. Every now and then, it will on a tile and spawn flames, much like a bomb explosion, in a range of two. The spawned flames will eventually disappear, and then Grein will continue to move about. The flames detonate bombs and damage players on contact. Grein itself also damages players on collision. It takes 1 hit to defeat and yields a score of 300 points.[1]

Super Bomberman 5[]

In Super Bomberman 5, Grein appears in Zone 3. It takes 1 hit to defeat and yields a score of 300 points.

Bomberman Quest[]

Grein is found on Field Zone. It moves quickly and aimlessly. It often stops and throws three fireballs in rapid succession at the player, which will cause damage on contact. Each fireball moves exactly to the point at which the player was standing when the fireball was spawned.

Grein can only be harmed by the Ice Bomb. It has 5 HP and yields the Scuba Gear upon defeat.[2]

Bomberman Max[]

Grein is found on Zaurus Star. It moves quickly, randomly turning or reversing directions at intersections, and passing through Soft Blocks. As it moves, it leaves flames behind on open tilespaces, creating a trail of fire that is up to two tilespaces in length. Both Grein and the fire it leaves behind will damage the player on contact. It takes 2 hit to defeat.

Bomberman Tournament[]

Grein is found on Desert Zone, and cannot be harmed. It periodically leaps out of lava and, at the peak of its jump, spits a bullet in Bomberman's direction.[3] The bullet can pass over any kind of obstacles, harming the player upon contact, but can be blocked with Ceedrun's Shield ability.

Grein is not named in the official guide book, but its behavior is identical to its original behavior in Neutopia II.
