Classic Bomberman

Bomberman (PCE)

Green Bomberman (グリーン, green)[2] 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.[3] 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.

Bomberman '93

Green Bomberman appears in the first phase of the final boss, riding a yellow bike alongside the other four fake Bombermen. He has two HP.[3] 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.

In Super Bomberman 4, Green Bomber acts as an Assistance Bomber. He is found trapped within a cage in Area 1-6 of the Primeval Era.

Biography

The youngest of the eight Bomberman Bros.

Green is everyone's favorite little bro. He's so cute that everything he does makes the others want to hug and protect him - and none of them are ever able to turn down a request from him, either.

However, this apparent cuteness is not entirely genuine, and behind Green's innocent smile there appears to lurk a ruthlessly calculating and sometimes mean side. Could it be that the others are all being manipulated by Green without even realizing it...?

~ Super Bomberman R Official Website[10]

Green makes his debut in the first cutscene. He is seen playing with a toy car before trying and failing to manipulate his eldest brother, White, into giving him money for a burger by claiming it will help him grow stronger. When White brings him along in the shuttle to embark on a mission against Buggler, though, he complains that he is scared.

On Planet Timbertree, he bids White good luck, trying to avoid the action, and expresses frustration when White tells him that they're all coming along.

On Planet Brainwave, he is frightened by the fact that the whole population has been put to sleep within the planet's cyber network. However, after Phantom Bomber has been bested in battle, as the collapse of the cyber network threatens to destroy him and his sibilings, he is able to manipulate Blue into waking up long enough to disable Phantom Bomber's electronic lock and allow them all to escape. As with his earlier manipulation of White, he lies, telling Blue that White was planning on buying him a luxury pillow and earplugs for sleeping.

After Buggler's defeat, he is seen playing with Aqua instead of training.
