Bomberman Wiki

Kamikaze Bomber (Bonkee in Japanese) is a member of the Bomber Family and is a playable character in Bomberman '94.


Kamikaze Bomber is identified by his mohawk and pointy shades. He is a reckless character who sets bombs all around the map.


  • His Japanese name, Bonkee, is a portmanteau of Bomb and Yankee. In context, "Yankee" is a Japanese term for a young delinquent.
  • The name "Bonkee" was submitted by Toshiaki Suzumura from Aichi Prefecture, Japan.
  • In Bomberman '94, Kamikaze Bomber's head remains mostly white while his body and mohawk change colors to reflect the player's color for players three (red) and five (green). In Mega Bomberman, his head changes color while his mohawk matches the color of his hands and feet.
  • In Kamikaze Bomber's picture on the character select screen in-game, he appears to have several piercings on his face.
  • A later character, Metal Bomber, bears a striking resemblance to Kamikaze Bomber.
  • Kamikaze Bomber's artwork also appears on the North American box art of Mega Bomberman on the Sega Mega Drive/Genesis.
  • During development on the Sega Mega Drive/Genesis version of Mega Bomberman, Kamikaze Bomber was originally going to play his electric guitar when left idle during a match if the player is not controlling him. However, it was scrapped later in the development, but the sprite sheets found in the game's ROM data features him playing his electric guitar.
