Seeballon, Bomberman Quest

Sea Balloon (シーバルーン Shī Barūn) is a recurring enemy in the Bomberman series. It is an octopus that uses its mouth to perform various attacks. It appears in water areas.

Description[]

Super Bomberman 3[]

Sea Balloon is found in Deep Sea. It appears under the sand, with only its exposed tentacles visible. It moves at a normal pace and has a tendency to gravitate toward players. Periodically, it will emerge and spit ink, dimming the screen (unless it is blasted before its attack is over). Afterwards, it continues to move around above the sand. If it comes close to a bomb, or after it has been moving above-ground for a certain amount of time, it will dive back under the sand again. It damages players on collision. While underground, it evades explosions. It takes 1 hit to defeat and yields a score of 300 points.[1]

Bomberman World[]

In Bomberman World, Sea Balloon is found in Planet Ocean and has been redesigned: it appears with a sphere-shaped vase on its head. In this game, Sea Balloon can attack by spitting an ink projectile at Bomberman if it aligns with it. Both ink and Sea Balloon itself will harm the player. If it is within 2 tile spaces of a bomb, it will hide inside the vase and move for 6 seconds before emerging and will be invulnerable during this time. It takes 1 hit to defeat and yields a score of 200 points.

Bomberman Quest[]

Sea Balloon (Seeballon in the English versions) appears in the middle of a rectangle of Hard Blocks. It moves quickly, in straight lines when moving vertically and, often, side to side in a wavy pattern when moving horizontally. It jumps up and spits ink bubbles, which soar slowly through the air. Upon landing, they burst into three smaller bubbles which move quickly away from each other, disappearing shortly. The bubbles will harm Bomberman on contact. Sea Balloon can also perform a very rapid jumping tackle, reaching at most 6 tilespaces. It usually stays inside of the block enclosure, and its attacks do not pass through walls, so the player can take cover outside of the block enclosure.

Sea Balloon has 5 HP and yields a Clock upon defeat.[2]

Bomberman Tournament[]

Sea Balloon appears above the water and spits bullets in Bomberman's direction. Because it never sets foot on land, it cannot be attacked. It is now purple colored, and resembles the Charabom, Sibaloon. The bullet it shoots can pass over any kind of obstacles, but can be blocked with Ceedrun's Shield ability.

Bomberman Jetters: Densetsu no Bomberman[]

Appears only during Kai-Man's minigame. It keeps the exact same appearance as its Bomberman Tournament counterpart, and will shoot bullets at the player, that needs to be dodged or blocked with Kai-Man's Shield ability. It cannot be destroyed.

Trivia[]

This enemy first appeared in the earlier Hudson Soft games Neutopia and Neutopia II. In those games, it behaves similarly to how it does in Bomberman Tournament.
