Dracula Bomber (ドラキュラボンバー, dorakyura bonbā)[1] is a playable character who appears in Super Bomberman R. He was added in update 2.0 on November 15, 2017.[2]

Biography

The Dark Lord Bomberman who presides over Planet Castlevania from his sinister living castle.

An immortal vampire leading an army of darkness, the mere mention of his name strikes fear in the hearts of people everywhere. Even when defeated, he is never completely destroyed, and always rises once more, together with his castle.

He and the Belmont Clan are eternal nemeses, locked in an ongoing battle through the ages.

~ Super Bomberman R Official Website[2]

In the introductory cinematic for Grand Prix mode, Dracula Bomber arrives on Planet Bomber alongside Pyramid Head Bomber and Anubis Bomber to judge the strength of the planet's representative competitors, the Bomberman Brothers. Believing them to be weak, he and his allies begin an assault, but they are stopped by Vic Viper Bomber, Simon Belmont Bomber, and Jehuty Bomber. After Belmont Bomber gives White his memory cartridge, White uses the Vampire Killer to strike Dracula Bomber, leaving a mark on his hand. Impressed by this power, he vows to challenge the heroes at the Big Bang Grand Prix.

He considers the Big Bang Grand Prix to be less of a contest and more of a "battle to the death" to determine the "ruler of the stars".

Special Ability

Dracula Bomber's special ability is Dark Curse (魔の呪印, ma no noroi shirushi, literally "Demon's Curse Mark"). With a press of the button, he will place a magic circle on the square he occupies. After spawning, the circle becomes invisible. Up to four circles may be placed. When a fifth circle is placed, the oldest circle will be dispelled. Each circle lasts for thirty seconds before it automatically disappears.

If a bomb is placed on a magic circle, the bomb will be kicked in the direction that Dracula Bomber was facing when he created the circle. The circle becomes temporarily visible when this happens. It remains active after its effect has been triggered, so multiple bombs may be deflected by the same circle.

All magic circles disappear if Dracula Bomber is eliminated.

Trivia

Dracula Bomber is based off of the iteration of Dracula seen in Castlevania: Symphony of the Night, a Konami title.
