- This article is about the palette-based character. For the Bomberman Wars/World character, see Aqua Bomber. For the Bombergirl character, see Aqua (Bombergirl).
Aqua Bomber first appears as a nameless selectable palette in Super Bomberman 2. In Bomberman Blast, Bomberman Blitz, and the Bomberman Battle Pack included in Bomberman (DS), Bomberman Story DS, Bomberman Land Touch!, and Bomberman Land Touch! Star Bomber's Miracle World, player eight is an aqua-coloured Bomberman.
In Bomberman Land Touch! Star Bomber's Miracle World, Aqua Bomber (アクアボン, akuabon) is an apprentice at a circus. Although she tries hard, she is a bit clumsy. In the English localization, she is known as Acrobat Aqua.
The little sis of the group, and the second youngest of all the Bomberman Bros.
Aqua is a kind, polite, and gentle young girl, and a devoted pacifist who despises violence of all kinds. Her one true wish is that both her friends and enemies alike will put down their arms and stop fighting...but unfortunately, her timid personality means that she's never really able to speak up and say what she thinks.
However, that's when Aqua ISN'T in a bad mood. If anything ever causes her to lose her temper, she suddenly becomes more fearsome than any of her siblings, transforming into a wild berserker who battles violence with violence.~ Super Bomberman R Official Website
When the Bomberman Brothers receive Buggler's transmission at the onset of the game, Aqua is hesitant to join her siblings, insisting upon her non-violent stance. At Planet Technopolis, she expresses concern over Red's aggressive behaviour. After Magnet Bomber's defeat, when he and Red continue to fight, she attempts to stop them and find a peaceful resolution. In response, Magnet Bomber punches her in the face, which causes her to enter a rage, knocking both of them far away in a single blow. Her siblings treat this as a normal occurrence.
Aqua makes two more notable appearances during the Story Mode. She next appears on Planet Lalaland, where Pink reminds her that their scrapped eldest sister loved the amusement park. She appears to know about her sister, despite having never met her. Later, on Planet Scrapheap, she asks her siblings about the graveyard planet, of which none of them seem to have any knowledge.
In the opening for Grand Prix Mode, she is reluctant to join White in his training for the competition, but only minutes later, she fights over the Vampire Killer memory cartridge, hoping to try it out for herself.
Aqua has a set of default stats for Grand Prix Mode, but she can also be equipped with the memory cartridge of any other playable character, which will alter her stats to the stats of the selected character.

In the Shiny Edition of the PS4, Steam, and Xbox One versions of the game, available only via preorder, an alternate skin of this character, known as Shiny Aqua (キラキラ水ボン, kirakira mizubon?) is available. Once the included promotion code has been redeemed, she will be available at no Gem cost. She is functionally identical to the standard Aqua.
