Bomberman Origins

Here's my interpretation of Bomberman's Origins, as explained in the original NES Bomberman instruction manual!
“Bomberman is a robot engaged in the production of bombs. Like his fellow robots, he had been put to work in an underground compound by evil forces. Bomberman found it to be an unbearably dreary existence. One day, he heard an encouraging rumor. According to the rumor, any robot that could escape the underground compound and make it to the surface could become human. Bomberman leaped at the opportunity, but escape proved to be no small task. Alerted to Bomberman's betrayal, large numbers of the enemy set out in pursuit. Bomberman can rely only on bombs of his own production for his defense. Will he ever make it up to the surface? Once there, will he really become human?”
I love and miss Bomberman so much, I had a lot of fun making this. And yes, I know, at the end of the original Bomberman he becomes (SPOILER) Loderunner. This is basically my headcannon, I wanted it to tie into the other Bomberman games.

  • I wish you did a Something about Bomberman video. I think Bomberman doesn,t get half the representation he deserves, if you did an animation about him, maybe people would care again.

    • @Mr Barrington I figure the first Bomberman on Turbo-Grafx 16 is a complete reboot, since Bomberman 2 on NES isn't nothing like the original and more so the TG-16 game.

  • _Hark!_ I think I found me some Ancient Treasure... I get some HEAVY GBA vibes from this. (Even looks like one of those GBA remakes like "Kirby Nightmare in Dreamland" or "Metroid: Zero Mission") Probably would of been a fun one too, in another life... I also LOVE this Bomberman design, keeping his Iconic image, yet having the Original Robot origin. (Even though I always preferred BM being sometype of Alien over being a Robot.) From one Artist to another, this was great! (Also glad the lil Dude himself is back in action)

  • Floor 99 White runs toward the exit but slows to a halt hearing something he crotches down and puts an ear against the floor...he hears screaming and shattering cement getting closer. White barley has time to react as the ground explodes sending him flying and landing on his butt he quickly shakes out of his daze and sees a large white bearded figure in a purple cloak looming over him. The yellow toothed mouth twists into a grimace of pure rage and hatred. "You wothless collection of bolt!" his raspy voice booms. "How dare you try and escape from me and my factory...I don't know how you even make it this far but that doesn't matter...I built you...and so help me I can tear you apart! LOOKS LIKE YOUR LITTLE JOURNEY ENDS HERE,HERO!!!" and with that the figure cackles and levitates above the arena as White readies himself with his trusty bombs to either escape and finally taste freedom...or fight and die trying. *Dastardly Dictator Of Planet Bomber* BUGGLER

  • It could makes sense why bomberman levels are mazes and he has to use bombs to scape from them If this gets into a real game, it could bring a lot of explanations to bomberman's lore

  • *Spoiler Alert* When you beat the NES version of the game, Bomberman becomes human. Later on you can see that he makes a sequel in Lode Runner NES. The one and only true Bomberman is Lode Runner, and the rest of the other robots are also copies of Bomberman.
