Super Bomberman[]

In Super Bomberman, Senshiyan appears in Stage 1 and Stage 4. It moves about slowly at a speed of 2, only changing direction after colliding with a block, bomb, or other enemy. It may choose to reverse directions even if it is not at a dead end. After a period of one to four seconds, it performs its signature attack, pausing to unleash a stream of fire in one of the 4 cardinal directions. This attack has a range of 4 tile spaces, and can set bombs off slightly early. It will harm the player on collision and takes 3 hits to destroy and yields a score of 1600 points.

In Super Bomberman 5, it appears in Zone 1. Its behavior remain similar to its previous version, and still keep the ability to shoot a 4 tiles range stream of fire in one of the four directions. It takes 3 hits to destroy and yields a score of 400 points.

Super Bomberman R[]

In Super Bomberman R, Senshiyan appears with a slightly updated appearance. Here, it only takes 1 hit to defeat.


  • The name "Senshiyan" comes from the Japanese words "senshi", meaning "soldier", and "yan", a familiar suffix for names.
