Biography

A cyborg Bomberman from the Metal Gear planet.

Wall running and slicing up giant unmanned weapons, his physical ability is simply superhuman. His codename is Raiden, but his true name is Jack. He was once known as Jack the Ripper. He can turn off his sense of taste when eating something disgusting, apparently.

Special Ability

Raiden Bomber's special ability is the Ninja run (ニンジャラン, ninja ran). Pressing the special ability button will initiate a sword slash, sending him up to two squares ahead. Any character hit by this ability will be knocked up to four squares away. Raiden Bomber will then be under an effect which lasts for five seconds, allowing him to move and make more slash attacks with the special ability button. He can make up to 12 consecutive attacks during this time, but he cannot place bombs. After the effect ends, it has a five second cooldown period before it may be used again.

Trivia

  • Raiden is the protagonist of the video game Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty, produced by Konami.
  • In update 2.2 on September 19, 2018, Raiden's vulnerability after hitting a character was reduced from 0.6 seconds to 0.3 seconds.[3]
