Sirius, Bomberman 64

Sirius (シリウス, Shiriusu) is a character in the Bomberman series. He appears in Bomberman 64 as the true main antagonist. His purpose at the beginning of the game is to serve as a guide for learning the game's controls and mechanics, and he continues to assist White Bomberman throughout the main part of the game, but he eventually shows his true intentions as a cruel, heartless, manipulative, lying and condescending villain.

Background[]

Some time before Bomberman 64, Altair, Orion, Artemis, and Regulus teamed up to steal the Omni Cube, which holds great power, from Sirius, the emperor of Rainbow Palace. Even with the four working together, they were barely able to steal the cube from him. To power the Onmi Cube, the four began draining the energy of planets around the galaxy, and one of them was Planet Bomber. As Sirius wanted the Omni Cube back, he searched for the hero of that planet that could defeat Altair for him, because, without the cube, Sirius was unable to even scratch him. Sirius found White Bomberman and decided to use and cooperate with him.

Sirius as he appears in the game

Sirius tells that he wants to defeat Altair in return for revenge, because he killed his family and destroyed his planet. However, these were just "corny lies" told by Sirius to induce Bomberman to help him recover the Omni Cube from Altair. After Bomberman found all the Gold Cards and defeated Altair, Sirius showed up, absorbed the power of the Omni Cube, knocked Regulus in a pit, and vaporized Altair and Vega with an extra-large laser. As Sirius didn't need Bomberman anymore, he headed to Rainbow Palace to destroy Planet Bomber. Regulus destroyed the Omni Cube and teamed up with Bomberman to fight Sirius. In the end, Sirius was completely destroyed.

Alternatively, if Bomberman does not collect all of the Gold Cards prior to defeating Altair, Regulus will carry Altair away to safety. This causes Sirius to express his disappointment with Bomberman, and he then appears to leave Planet Bomber, saying that he and Bomberman will probably never meet again. The bad ending concludes showing that Altair's attempted destruction of Planet Bomber resumed. However, a teaser showing Bomberman in the Rainbow Palace appears during the credits after this ending, suggesting to the player that there is more to be done.

Personality[]

Sirius is a mysterious man, initially seeming like a good person. Gradually, his conversations with Bomberman start sounding more sinister and suspicious. After defeating Altair with all available Gold Cards collected, Sirius reveals his true personality as a cruel, heartless, manipulative and condescending liar who uses anyone to get what he selfishly wants, seeing as he manipulated Bomberman for the entire course of the game and intended to destroy both him and Planet Bomber once he was no longer of any use to him. He also has a very foul temper, especially after the Omni Cube is destroyed and goes berserk at both Regulus and Bomberman.

Powers[]

  • Sirius can convert into a flight mode for speed and maneuverability.
  • His abilities in Green Garden are just bombs, bomb kick, bomb throw, and pumped bomb. However, he can pump up a bomb instantaneously.
  • In the first phase of Rainbow Palace, he is able to burn Bomberman with a laser while flying above horizontally randomly on the platform.
  • In the second phase, he loses this ability, but instead gains the ability to fire a large flaming beam straight ahead of him. It takes over three seconds to initiate and takes another three seconds to stop, but he is invulnerable while firing it.
  • In the second phase, he possesses a rush attack, moving at fast speed until reaching a wall, this attack can be stopped with a kicked bomb.

  5. Defeat him by target time.

Gold Cards (Rainbow Palace)[]

  1. Defeat him in the first phase within the target time (It resets in the second phase).
  2. Bounce a pumped bomb off his head during the second phase.
  3. Catch him in a pumped explosion during the second phase.
  4. Keep Regulus alive until the end (This is best done by throwing hearts at Regulus, since he has a tendency to take damage).
  5. Defeat him by target time.

Etymology[]

  • Sirius gets his name from a romanization of Greek Σείριος, Seirios meaning "glowing" and is one of Earth's brightest stars in the night sky.

Trivia[]

  • If the player unlocks Rainbow Palace and goes back to any level where Sirius would be talked to, a robot drone version of himself with green eyes will threaten White Bomberman and tell him to give up.
    • If the player fights him on Green Garden Stage 2, the same drone will speak sterotypical robotic analysis messages and still fight the player. The drone mentions collecting data, perhaps to aid Sirius in the final battle.
  • If the player beats the game and talks to him, his eyes will appear red.
  • On Green Garden Stage 3, Sirius mentions Altair not completely knowing how to use the Omni-Cube, with his sluggish speed at draining planets, and how White Bomberman should be thankful for his setback. Sirius knowing how the dangerous artifact works likely is foreshadowing his betrayal and villainy.
  • In the outtakes, shown in the credits after Bomberman defeats Sirius, Sirius flies in to battle Bomberman at Green Garden, but hits the side of the arena instead and falls into the water.
  • After he absorbs the power of the Omni Cube, his eyes become green and his speech robotic-like. His eyes and speech returned to normal after the cube was destroyed by Regulus. It was likely a fake Sirius, though, as his eyes are still blue when Bomberman goes to face him, and his voice clips aren't robotic for the first part of the last battle.
  • Sirius gives Bomberman a Remote Control before each of the following major boss fights; Draco, Leviathan, Hades, Mantis and Cerberus. If the 100 Gold Cards have been collected and Altair has been defeated, he will not appear, and instead the Remote Control will be placed in a bombable Crystal next to the player.
  • During the fight against Mantis, if Bomberman falls into an hole, Sirius will save him from death (up to 3 times). But only if the player didn't collected all the 100 Gold Cards and defeated Altair.
  • If playing in Hard Mode, Sirius will not give tutorials to the player in Green Garden.
  • If Sirius is caught in the explosion of his own pumped bomb, the player will still get the Gold Card for it.
  • Platinum, a character from Bombergirl, is based on Sirius, she wears a hairpin and carry a doll in his shape, as well as featuring the same color schemes in her outfit. Her Cosmic Laser Bomb skill is also very similar to his Laser Beam skill, and much like him, she's also after the Bombergirl rendition of the Omni Cube.
