Karaoke Bomber (セクシーボンバー, sekushībonbā, Sexy Bomber)[1] is the boss of Planet Lalaland, the fourth world in Super Bomberman R.

Biography

The only female member of the Five Dastardly Bombers.

Selfish, bossy, and condescending, Karaoke Bomber's general temperament is that of a spoiled princess. Not only is she able to mesmerize enemies with her "charming attacks", most fearsome of all is her terrifyingly tone-deaf singing. To make matters worse, she's more proud of her voice than anything, and this can often lead to disastrous results. It seems right that we should spare a thought for her underlings, who must endure her blood-curdling ballads day in and day out.

Karaoke Bomber is a robotic life-form who had been discarded and left for dead on Planet Scrapheap sometime in the past. Buggler arrives at the onset of the game's story, reviving her and the other Dastardly Bombers with his dark powers. Brainwashing them, he sends them to conquer the five planets of the Starry Sky Solar System. Karaoke Bomber conquers Planet Lalaland, disabling its climate control system and throwing the world into a harsh winter.

Karaoke Bomber makes a grand entrance when confronting the Bomberman Brothers on Planet Lalaland, calling herself a superstar. She takes advantage of Black's extreme shyness around girls, teasing him further and further, until she is stopped by Pink, who shoves her away, suggesting she isn't a "nice girl" suitable for her brother. This angers Karaoke Bomber, who attacks. In battle, she has 4 firepower and at least 3 bombs, and only takes one hit to defeat.

In stage 4-10, she engages the siblings while piloting Elegant Dream.

Upon her defeat, she retreats, vowing to take revenge. However, she happens to drop a pendant while escaping, which White and Pink recognize as having belonged to their scrapped older sister. The two speculate that she is one and the same.

At the Black Hole, an unconscious Karaoke Bomber is summoned by Buggler, who fuses her with the other Dastardly Bombers into Great Gattaida. Once the mech has been destroyed, Karaoke Bomber regains her memories, undoing the brainwashing and losing her mask in the process, revealing herself to be Pretty Bomber, the formery deceased eldest sister of the Bomberman Brothers. She then helps the Bomberman Brothers defeat Buggler. After the battle, she loses the Karaoke Bomber disguise altogether.

As Pretty Bomber, she is seen singing with Pink in front of a crowd during the credits.

Special Ability

Karaoke Bomber's special ability is the Karaoke Bomb (セクシーボム, sekushībomu, Sexy Bomb). This alternate bomb type has a long fuse, but will detonate prematurely if another player or enemy character lines up with it when there are no obstacles between the two and they are within four tiles of each other. It does not detonate if it lines up with Karaoke Bomber, another copy of her, or large bosses. Originally, this bomb was not affected by Skull conditions, but as of update 2.2 on September 19, 2018, it is.[2]
