You know, I have a funny feeling that we've met before...

Pass, Bomberman Quest

Pass (パース, Pāsu), also known as Parse, Tiglon, and Cecil the Tiger, is a recurring enemy in the Bomberman series.

Description[]

Bomberman (NES)[]

Pass moves faster than most enemies, at the same speed as Minvo and Pontan but cannot go through soft blocks. It often pursues Bomberman. Its behavior and appearance is kind of similar to Minvo, leading to assume that the two enemies could be somehow related, though Pass has ears, white cheek fur and fangs, and is a tiger. Unlike Minvo, however, Pass is smarter and always chases Bomberman if encountered. It's associated with the Fireproof Power-up and as such, will appear if said power up is blown up by a bomb, or the exit of a level with this power up present is bombed. It will harm Bomberman on collision. It takes 1 hit to defeat and yields a score of 4000 points.

Bomber Boy[]

Appears in Game B, a direct port of the NES Version. Behavior remains identical to its NES iteration. It takes 1 hit to defeat and yields a score of 4000 points.

Bomberman (TG-16)[]

In Bomberman (TG-16), it is the only one of two smarter enemies, the other being Pontan. It tends to pursue Bomberman and usually stays away from bombs. Most of the time, Pass will spawn if the Exit is bombed or if a power-up is destroyed. It takes 1 hit to defeat and yields a score of 2000 points.

Bomberman II[]

In Bomberman II, they appear earlier in the game, in Jail. Much of their appearance and behavior has been recycled from the first game, aside from small differences in the sprite and their behavior - they will get gradually faster once they see the protagonist and will commonly pursue him. It also evades bombs. Pass will appear most of the time when any power up is destroyed by a bomb, or, if the Exit is bombed. It takes 1 hit to defeat and yields a score of 400 points.
