Bomberman Wiki

Namename (ナメナメ, Namename) is an enemy in Super Bomberman 5.


Namename appears in Zone 5, and it is a strange blue creature with yellow hair, googly eyes and pink lips. It always moves forward at a slow pace, and will always turn to the right after colliding with a wall. It will only turn left when the path to the right is blocked, and will never reverse direction unless it goes into a dead end.

If Namename lines up horizontally or vertically with a bomb, and there are no obstacles in between them, it will begin to move toward it. Once Namename is 2 tiles spaces away from the bomb, it will shoot out its tongue and devour it. Its tongue has a range of 3 and does not harm the player. Namename itself will harm the player on collision. It takes 1 hit to defeat and yields a score of 400 points.


  • Namename's appearance is somewhat similar to another enemy, Lipsy, who also has the capacity to use its tongue to eat bombs.
  • The name "Namename" is based off the Japanese word "nameru", which means "licking". This refers to Namename's attack by using its tongue to eat bombs.
