Bomberman Wiki

The Spotlight (スポットライト) is a trap that appears in Super Bomberman, Super Bomberman 5 and Bomberman Portable.


Stages that contain a Spotlight are covered in darkness, making the battlefield difficult to see. Only the area within a Spotlight is illuminated.

However, each Spotlight moves around on the stage. In Super Bomberman, Spotlights move in diagonal directions, randomly changing or reversing directions upon reaching the edge of the screen. In Super Bomberman 5, Spotlights never reverse directions upon reaching the edge of the screen, and may randomly change movement speed when they change directions.
