—Mad Flower, Bomberman Quest
Mad Flower (マッドフラワー) is an enemy in the Bomberman series. It typically appears as a flower with a large mouth and sharp teeth.
Mad Flower remains stationary in the middle of the screen, summoning two small flowers to attack Bomberman. The small flowers pursue Bomberman relentlessly. They can be defeated with two bomb blasts, but Mad Flower will summon another flower to replace any that have been destroyed. Mad Flower has 4 HP and yields a Fire item upon its defeat.
Mad Flower remains stationary until the player approaches. Once the player is within two tile spaces, Mad Flower will give chase until the player is out of range once more, at which point it will stop moving and wait for the player to approach.
Its behavior is identical in Bomberman Max 2.
Mad Flowers come in groups of three. They spin around in a circle, gradually increasing and then decreasing their range. As a group, they also move up and down slowly. Each Mad Flower has 1HP. They can all be taken out with one explosion while they are crowded together.
- This enemy first appeared in an earlier Hudson Soft game, Neutopia II. Its behavior was similar to that of its Bomberman Tournament incarnation, and it was named Plant Man.
