Special Ability

Princess Tomato Bomber's special ability is known as Princess Light (プリンセスライト, purinsesuraito) in Super Bomberman R. When it is activated, Princess Tomato Bomber enters a special pose for two seconds. She cannot take any actions during this time, but the pose can be ended by pressing the special ability button again. If another character touches her, the effect immediately ends, and that character gains invulnerability from explosions for 20 seconds. Princess Tomato Bomber must wait 10 seconds to be able to use Princess Light again.

If the immune character is hit by a blast, the blast is blocked at the square before the character, invulnerability is dispelled, and the character is flung back up to three squares. If the character hits an obstacle in the way, they fall down and are briefly stunned.

Although it is intended for use in team play, Princess Light can be helpful when used against opponents in special cases. Bestowing immunity upon an opponent can block a blast and protect both characters. In particular, if both characters are trapped in the same space, such a maneuver could be advantageous.

In Super Bomberman R Online, Princess Tomato Bomber's special ability is My hero! Once activated, she has about one second to touch another character. The touched character's stats will be temporarily buffed, and Princess Tomato Bomber will follow them closely. This ability lasts for 30 seconds, at which point she will be briefly stunned and the target character will lose their stat boost. She may also leave the target player at any time to end the effect. There is a cooldown before My hero! may be used again.


  • Princess Tomato Bomber comes from Princess Tomato in the Salad Kingdom, a game released by Hudson Soft.
  • Originally, Princess Light could not be ended prematurely. In update 2.1 on June 27, 2018, the option to cancel the ability was implemented.
