The Oven Range (Renji in Japanese) is a boss character in Bomberman Max 2 and Bomberman Portable. It is a giant demonic microwave with red-gloved arms and a cookie tail.

Bomberman Max 2[]

In Bomberman Max 2, the Oven Range is the boss of the third zone, Dining Zone, and the guardian of the third Light Bulb Switch powering the Mini-Mini Device.

It is very slow. Physical contact will harm the player on collision. Its tail is very flexible, made out of circle cookies with a tree cookie at the end, and can be extended to follow the player and downward strike the player at the spot they are in while the tail is in the air. It will utilize food to attack the player, and can summon cookies that are any various bombs depending on player and Charabom on occasion. The Oven Range can rain a shower of popcorn to try and stun the player.

It takes 7 hits to defeat.

Bomberman Portable[]

The Oven Range made its second appearance in the Electro World from Bomberman Portable. The Oven Range's design in Bomberman Portable is much more jarring and demonic than its Bomberman Max 2 incarnation. It is faced again as the boss of the stage. Like some of the other large boss battle stages throughout the game, the Oven Range is faced in an open battlefield with no grid of Hard Blocks, which in fact could be somewhat of an advantage to the player as its movements are quite unpredictable in this version. The Oven Range's attacks can be extremely deadly to the player if the player does not respond to its attacks quick enough. Unlike its previous incarnation from Bomberman Max 2, the Oven Range's agility and attacks have improved drastically to counter against the player. It is now able to protect itself from any kind of explosive damage by closing its door which acts as a shield to protect its only vulnerable section, its interior with two red eyes. The Oven Range will inevitably drop its door if it is about to launch attacks at the player, leaving its face exposed to the player and giving the player a chance to cause damage to it. It will close up its door in less than 4 seconds upon attacking regardless if it receives damage from the player or not. It utilizes two forms of attacks. The first attack is its signature tail made up of cookies, unlike its attack pattern in Bomberman Max 2, it can no longer extend its tail and land the attack at the player. Which results in this attack will be used only if the player is standing in front of it, this attack can be super deadly as it is launched rapidly with little warning. If the player failed to escape from its sight it will utilize this move immediately, potentially killing the player if the player did not respond quick enough. The Oven Range is also no longer utilizing food to attack the player like it did in Bomberman Max 2, but it is implemented with electricity shock as its new attack. If the player is not within the Oven Range's sight, it will drop its door and sends electrical waves in four directions, covering the entire screen vertically and horizontally. While this attack can be easily avoided if the player prevent standing vertically or horizontally as the Oven Range while confronting it. As it takes enough damage, it will shoot eight waves instead of four, making this much harder for the player to avoid its attack.

It takes 7 hits to defeat and yields a score of 15000 points.
