Game appearances

Knuckles' Chaotix

In the Bombbearer's debut game, it bobs across the width of the screen. While the sphere it carries might look like a weapon, these robots never try to drop their cargo on the Chaotix Crew.

Sonic Mania

In Sonic Mania, Bombbearers reappear in Press Garden Zone Act 2. In this game, the large spheres they carry can freeze the player or create a pillar of ice that can damage the player upon hitting the ground.
