Water from Super Bomberman 2.

Don't go in! Bomberman can't swim!!

Pommy, Bomberman 64: The Second Attack

Water appears as a trap in some Bomberman games.


Super Bomberman 2[]

In Super Bomberman 2, bodies of water act as normal Hard Blocks and are impassable to explosions, enemies, and the player. However, if the player uses a Trampoline to jump and lands on a tile space containing water, Bomberman will drown and the player will lose a life. It should be noted that only the tile spaces that are fully covered with water can harm Bomberman, as he will bounce across the edge tiles of a pool.

Bomberman 64/Bomberman 64: The Second Attack[]


Bomberman drowning in Bomberman 64: The Second Attack!

In these games, water lies on a level below the floor, and Bomberman will drown if he falls off of a platform and into it. Enemies can be stunned and thrown into water to instantly eliminate them, but the player cannot collect any spoils from them if they are eliminated in this manner. In Bomberman 64: The Second Attack, Pommy will respawn at the location of the player if he falls into water, and Baelfael will lose 1 HP and reappear above the arena if he is tossed into it.

Bomberman Wars[]

In this game, water is impassable to most characters, but explosions will pass over it. If a bomb is placed on a tile space that contains water, the bomb will be eliminated without an explosion.

Bomberman Hero[]

If Bomberman falls into water, he will lose one unit of life and will be tossed back up into the air. While being tossed, the player can move Bomberman around so that he lands on solid ground rather than back into the water. While using the Bomber Copter, Bomberman will still suffer damage upon colliding with the water, but will not be tossed back, the player has to manually hold the A button to fly upward and get out of the way. There are also certain underwater levels where Bomberman must use the Bomber Marine to navigate through freely. As Golden Bomber, he can breath and walk fully underwater, without the need of the Bomber Marine.

Bomberman Quest[]

If Bomberman enters a body of water, he will slowly take damage 1 HP at a time unless the Scuba Gear is equipped. While underwater, only Aqua Bombs can be used.

Bomberman Tournament[]

The water is impassable in this game. However at specific places, Kai-Man is required to enter the water and go underwater, while underwater Bomberman can then walk freely however only Aqua Bombs can be used. In addition, Sibaloon's ability "Rainbow Bridge" can be used over a body of water.

Bomberman Generation[]

Bomberman can go into the water without any problem. In the stages with low water, only Water Bombs can be used, other kind of bombs will instantly disappear. However in the complete underwater levels, any kind of bombs can be used, and work just fine.
