Biography

A new type LEV Bomberman from Planet Anubis.

Being the third unit of the three mecha developed for testing, it is far more advanced than previous LEV due to its Metatron technology. He is best friends and also rivals with Jehuty Bomber and has a fairly close relationship with Jehuty's A.I. "A.D.A."

Special Ability

Vic Viper Zero Bomber's special ability is the Speed Up (スピードアップ, supīdo appu). By pressing the button, he will quickly fly forward in a straight line, only stopping when he collides with a bomb or obstacle. His speed is high enough to allow him to pass through twelve squares in roughly one second. If he is equipped with the Bomb Kick, he will kick a bomb if he hits it during the boost. However, he is completely vulnerable.
