Depending on the setting, Regenerating Blocks may reappear quickly, or they may take some time to "grow". In Super Bomberman and the Normal Game of Super Bomberman 2, they reappear almost instantly, but in the Super Bomberman 2 Battle Stage Matango Jump, they reform slowly. While in the process of regenerating, the Soft Blocks are invulnerable to explosions.
In Bomberman Tournament, the Regenerating Blocks appear in a puzzle to the east of Epsilon. A similar puzzle also appears in Bomberman Jetters: Densetsu no Bomberman. The Regenerating Blocks in these puzzles reform slowly, requiring players to think ahead and destroy the correct blocks in order to pass through.
