Blue Bomber appears as the default character for player four in every Bomberman game that allows up to four players in the Battle Game and which utilizes character palettes.
Blue Bomberman (ブルー, blue) originally appears in Bomberman for the PC-Engine. He is one of fake Bombermen (偽ボンバーマン, nise bonbāman) who follows Black Bomberman, and is faced as a boss character in the final battle. Though he cannot place bombs, he has two HP, and can periodically enter a flame form, firing off one or two fireballs in random directions. In his flame form, he is invulnerable to attacks, and any bombs he or his fireballs touch are detonated. He wanders randomly, but when White Bomberman lines up with him, he may decide to chase after him, increasing his speed for a time.
He also appears as a playable character for the first time.
Blue Bomberman appears in the first phase of the final boss, riding a yellow bike alongside the other four fake Bombermen. He has two HP. He wanders randomly, but may speed up in a straight line if Bomberman crosses his path. He can also randomly place land mines (地雷, jirai) on the field. If Bomberman touches a mine, it will instantly explode with 1 firepower. Mines can be safely removed with explosions.

When he is seen, Blue is always sleeping or on the verge of falling asleep. On Planet Brainwave, his sleeping through Phantom Bomber's monologue agitates the villain. When Blue responds that people droning on makes him sleepy, Phantom Bomber's anger is further stoked.
However, Blue reveals a hidden technological talent after the battle. As the planet's cyber network collapses, the youngest sibling, Green coaxes Blue into disabling Phantom Bomber's digital lock with lies about White buying Blue a new and improved pillow and ear plugs. Despite his and his siblings' lives all being in mortal danger, these promises are the only thing that motivate Blue to use his technological expertise to disable the lock.
Blue has a set of default stats for Grand Prix Mode, but he can also be equipped with the memory cartridge of any other playable character, which will alter his stats to the stats of the selected character.
