Nemu Nemu (ネムネム, Nemu Nemu) is an enemy in the Bomberman series.


Super Bomberman 2[]

In Super Bomberman 2, it appears in Stage 3. Nemu Nemu moves slowly in a straight line until it collides with a block, bomb, or other enemy, at which point it falls asleep for a very long time. When it finally wakes up, or when it is hit by an explosion, it will choose a random direction and continue to move, or it can choose to stay and go back to sleep. It may choose to reverse directions even if it is not at a dead end. When sleeping, Nemu Nemu snores 10 times before it wakes up. It will harm the player on collision, and requires 2 hits to defeat and yields a score of 100 points.

Super Bomberman 5[]

In Super Bomberman 5, Nemu Nemu appears in the Zone 2. It does not pause when colliding with obstacles, and instead will fall asleep at random. The duration of time that it spends sleeping is considerably shorter than it was in the previous game, here it snores only 4 times before waking up. It takes 2 hits to defeat and yields a score of 100 points.


  • The name "Nemu Nemu" comes from the Japanese word "nemui", which means "sleepy".
  • In the artwork, Nemu Nemu has teeth, which are not visible in its sprites, but its tongue is visible in the artwork and sprites.
