A series of soft toys produced by Oobunesu (オーブネス) (src: Bomberman Maniax) in 1993 as crane game prizes, to promote the first Super Nintendo game. The larger scale set (approximately 18 to 20cm tall) features four colours of Bomberman holding a plastic bomb, and a Mecha Bomber. The bomb is actually a piggy bank with a coin slot on its front and a cap on its bottom.

The smaller scale set (13.5 to 16cm tall) features a wider variety of poses, including White Bomber with double peace signs and a champion's belt, Green Bomberman waving a "BOM" flag, a yellow Mecha Bomber, and Red Bomberman holding a small plastic bomb. The bomb is held by a thread running through a hook on the bomb into the hand's fabric, so it is possible to snip it off.

The larger piggy bank version was rereleased in 1995 as a Super Bomberman 3 tie-in, changing the tag and nothing else. It's unknown if any other plushes in this line were rereleased in the same manner.

A soft toy with a digital alarm clock built into it, released around 1994. When the alarm is set, it plays explosion sounds until it's turned off. It stands approximately 20cm tall.

A soft toy roughly 22cm tall with long arms that can be looped around or attached to each other, as well as a turning head. Advertised on TV commercials for Super Bomberman 4, probably a mail-away prize similar to the Alarm Bomber.

[need to research this one a bit!]


A big plush Bomberman that serves as a backpack! Released around 1996 and approximately 14 inches tall. Features adjustable shoulder straps or a carrying handle on his head.

  • Bakugaiden being a bit of a sensation during its run in 1998, there was stacks and stacks of merchandise, including plush toys - so many I bet I'm not even scatching the surface! This is all I have currently found, their manufacturers and total product lines unknown.

    A Shirobon plush toy was made, I know that for certain! Everything else is pure speculation; likely released in 2002 or 2003, probably as a prize toy judging by its ribbon, and it looks to be approximately 5 inches tall.
