Bomberman Wiki

The Shield is a recurring powerup item in the Bomberman series.


It is an item used to protect players from bomb blasts coming from the front, though not from the sides and the back. It can protect players from any kind of bomb, excluding the Dangerous Bomb, for which the blast affects a specific radius.

The Shield was first introduced in Bomberman Quest, where it allowed to block some projectiles such as arrows. It is obtained by defeating Trent.

In Bomberman DS, it is used by pressing and holding the Y button. Unlike Bomberman Blast's shield, there is an upper limit to how long it can be deployed. It is also a level called "Voice shield" that the player can enable the shield by blowing into the mic, There is also a level named "Shield", where every player has a Shield.

In Bomberman Blast, it can be activated by shaking the Wii remote continuously. It is a default item for Open Field, Bomb Bowling, Volcanoes, and Zombies. Shields are also automatically in disposal during an Air Raid match.


  1. Shake the Wii remote continuously.
  2. The player will take out a shield to protect the front.
  3. As long as the Wii remote is being shaken, the shield will stay up.


  • Ceedrun's power in Bomberman Tournament provided a similar effect to the Shield power-up. However, Ceedrun's shield was unable to provide any defense against bomb blasts, but instead protected Bomberman from projectiles. Kai-Man, in Bomberman Max 2, also featured a similar ability.
  • In Bomberman Generation, Kai-Man's Shield ability will cut the damage received by half.
  • In Bomberman Jetters for the Gamecube and Playstation, Ceedrun's Shield ability is similar to that of his Bomberman Tournament incarnation, except when leveled up, a maximum of 4 shields will protect Bomberman from projectiles. And in addition, Kai-Man's Shield ability is also similar to his Bomberman Generation incarnation, but when leveled up, his shield cuts the damages received to Bomberman by the lowest amount possible.
