Glitched stages in Bomberman (NES)

The title card for stage ☆0 (120).
In Bomberman for the NES/Famicom, despite the fact that the game is meant to end after the 50th stage, due to an imperfect password system, it is possible for players to input incorrect passwords and reach other glitched stages.[1] The glitched stages run from stage 51 to stage 255. However, stages 51, 76, 77,96-103, 128, 179, 204, 205, and 224-231 are considered unplayable. In stages 120 through 129, the stage title is scrambled. Counting the normal 50 stages, there are 232 total playable stages in the game.[2]

It is notable that, while some stages have an ordinary number of soft blocks, many have a scattered few. Also, both the soft block containing a power-up and the one containing the exit are displayed as a frame of a destroyed soft block. Power-ups in these stages tend to appear as other graphics, often with an improper palette.

Passwords

The following table includes a list of stages and the passwords needed to reach them. This list, including the names given to each stage, comes from Bomberman Maniax.[2]

Special Stages

Bomberman faces an unbelievable challenge in U8 Stage, a stage with few soft blocks, tough enemies, and no starting power-ups.
There are also three stages that lie outside of the "ordinary" 255. These stages can be accessed with passwords as well.
