Bomberman Wiki

Moguchan (モグチャン, Moguchan) is an enemy in Super Bomberman and Bomberman DS.


Super Bomberman[]

Moguchan is found in Stage 3 and Stage 6. It is a mole creature that will abruptly stop to burrow a hole in the ground and emerge in a random spot on the map.

Moguchan moves at a speed of 2, constantly pursuing the player, only changing directions when it collides with a block, bomb, or other enemy. It may choose to reverse directions even if it is not at a dead end. Every now and then, Moguchan will abruptly stop and burrow a hole in the ground, leaving the stage. After two to three seconds, it will emerge in a different, random spot on the map.

It will harm the player on collision and takes 1 hit to defeat and yields a score of 400 points.

Bomberman DS[]

It reappears in Bomberman DS, under its original color palette. It is found in Area 6. It takes 1 hit to defeat and yields a score of 400 points.


  • The name "Moguchan" comes from the Japanese words "mogura", meaning "mole", and "chan", a diminutive suffix for names.
  • Strangely, Moguchan's sprites were radically changed for the European and U.S. versions of Super Bomberman. In the original Japanese version, Moguchan resembles its depiction in the official artwork (the leftmost sprite to the right on this page), while in the European and U.S. versions, it has no mouth and is green with a purple body (the rightmost sprite). The reason for this change is unknown, as it is the only enemy in the game that was modified for the overseas releases.
  • Moguchan's original Japanese colors finally appeared officially in Bomberman DS, though it kept the same physical structure of its U.S. and European Super Bomberman counterpart, yet, it has a bucktooth.
