in Super Smash Flash 2
Bomberman is a starter character in Super Smash Flash 2 hailing from Konami's (formerly by the defuncted Hudson Soft) series of the same name. The White Bomber's design is based around his appearance in the game Bomberman Generation, where he is despicted wearing a red scarf and golden bracelets.
Bomberman is ranked 17th on the current tier list, at the top of B tier; a large drop from his 9th place position last demo. Bomberman has good combo ability, a solid air game, good air speed and kill moves in all of his smash attacks, a fully charged Bomb, his back and forward aerials, and his forward throw. He has a unique projectile in his bombs which he can place up to five bombs at a time on the stage. He can move the bombs around giving him good stage control. He has solid aerials that give good knockback. Bomberman has decent mobility with a decent dashing speed, good air speed and the second fastest walking speed.
However, the big hitbox on Bombermans' head is also a big hurtbox and when combined with his high accelerated falling speed makes him susceptible to combos and chain grabs. His recovery covers great vertical distance, but covers little horizontal distance. Outside of his head; his range is short(possessing the third shortest grab in the current demo,and makes him vulnerable to characters with disjointed hitboxes (ex. Ichigo and Lloyd).
His pros are on par with his cons and is the reason why he is ranked in the middle.
Bomberman is good at stage control with his bombs with being able to place five bombs of three different sizes onstage at a time and being able to use Bomb Kick to move them across the stage. He has a big hitbox in his head which makes him good at juggling his opponents. Jetpack gives him a good vertical recovery. He can kill with all of his smash attacks, his forward throw, a fully charged bomb and his forward aerial. He has two chain grabs in his up and down throw which can help him set up bomb kills or racking up damage. He has a decent air game with his solid aerials.
However, the disadvantage of Bomberman's big head is that it also works as a big hurtbox and combined with his falling speed leads him to being easily combo'ed, juggled and chain grabbed. His recovery covers good vertical distance, but lacks in horizontal distance. He also has problems in his range which leaves him vulnerable to characters with disjointed hitboxes and with fast, rushdown gameplay.
