Pakupaku (パクパク Pakupaku) is an enemy in the Bomberman series. It is a snake-like monster that eats bombs.
Pakupaku moves at a normal pace, turning randomly at intersections. If it collides with a bomb, it will eat it. After doing so, it will turn fat and slow, no longer able to eat any more bombs. It will harm Bomberman on collision.
Pakupaku moves slowly, pursuing Bomberman until it moves within a few tile spaces. It will then move back and forth along the row or column parallel to him. If it collides with a bomb, or if a bomb is in its line of sight within a few tile spaces, Pakupaku will rush forward and eat it. Once it has eaten a bomb, it will become fatter and will begin to move very slowly. After a while, it will digest the bomb and return to its normal speed. It cannot eat a bomb while it is carrying another bomb. Pakupaku will harm Bomberman on contact.
They appeared in Bomberman Max 2. The behaviors are similar previous games.
