Pipo Monkey Bomber (ピポサルボンバー, piposaru bonbā)[1] is a playable character who appears in Super Bomberman R. It was added in update 2.2 on September 19, 2018. It is exclusive to the PlayStation 4 version of the game.[2]


An intelligent monkey wearing "Pipo Helmet", an intelligence-boosting helmet invented by the Professor. Alias "Pipo Monkey."

Though of increased intelligence, Pipo Monkeys are at heart monkeys - they love bananas and mischief, and cause trouble for the humans.

Special Ability

Pipo Monkey Bomber's special ability is Aping (サルマネ, sarumane, "monkey see, monkey do"). When touching another character, pressing the button will cause it to mimic that character's abilities indefinitely. This includes their special ability as well as their items - even if the copied character has less power-ups than Pipo Monkey Bomber has, the new stats will be replicated instead, resulting in a loss of items. When Pipo Monkey Bomber is eliminated, only the items it has physically collected are scattered. Items are scattered even if they were no longer available to the character as a result of a Aping.

This also makes Pipo Monkey Bomber immune to effects that said character is immune to. For example, when copying Pyramid Head Bomber, it can no longer be harmed by Judgement, and when copying Magnet Bomber, Magnet Bombs will not attract to it. The copy lasts for the duration of the match, or until the character is eliminated.


Pipo Monkey Bomber is derived from the Pipo Monkey enemy from the Ape Escape video game franchise.
