Bomber Elite is a character of the Bomberman series and a boss of the game Bomberman Generation. He is the cape wearing leader of the Crush Bombers and, as can be expected, the strongest. Bomber Elite was gifted with psychic powers, and thus the only Bomberman character to have so. His boss stage is Physco Elevator, a large, isolated elevator leading a long way down to the lower levels of the Hige-Hige Bandit-owned space fortress Majestar.
In his first and only appearance (in Bomberman Generation) Bomber Elite is the last Crush Bomber who Bomberman confronts. He and his group, the Crush Bombers, were hired by Mujoe to recover the lost Bomb Elements after a failed space raid and to stop Ein from getting them. After being informed Ein sends White Bomberman to defeat the Crush Bombers, the Hige-Hige Bandits and Mujoe as well as recover the Bomb Elements before they all do.
At Majestar, while riding the Physco Elevator on the way to retrieve the purple Bomb Element, White Bomberman is intercepted by Bomber Elite, who manifests in the form of a blue sphere surrounded by a sphere of sparkling dust. He shows his impatience for his opponent before transforming back into his physical form and introducing himself. He then reveals that waiting for White Bomberman made him very bored, so Bomber Elite decides to "play" with him to ease his own boredom. This eventually sparks an intense battle between him and the player hero.
After his defeat a dying Bomber Elite sinks to his knees and reaches out for White Bomberman, prasing him for defeating him before collapsing, and fades away into a strange cloud of sparkling dust instead of "exploding". For some unexplained reason, Bomber Elite's death affects White Bomberman so much that he sheds a single tear in mourning, just as the elevator arrives at his destination.
Despite the villainous reputation of the Crush Bombers, Bomber Elite is the most controlled member of the group, being very mature for his age and bearing more honor than his teammates. He is also more kinder, being the only Crush Bomber who doesn't meet White Bomberman with hostility. The high technology of the stages of the fortress Majestar and Physco Elevator represent his logical and strategical personality, showing his intelligence. Bomber Elite also has a childlike, playful side that treats everything as some kind of "game" and uses his psychic powers to toy with his opponents, whether they like it or not. The reasons behind his isloation in Physco Elevator are unknown, but his dual personality combined with his abilities make him a very dangerous opponent. However, Bomber Elite can recognize when an opponent is not willing to fool around with him. If prodded for a certain amount of time, he will reveal his "serious" side and unleash the full extent of his powers on said opponent, making him more deadly.
Due to his powerful psychic powers, Bomber Elite has a secret desire for a worthy opponent who will be able to defeat him. His last quote in his ending cutscene implies that prior to White Bomberman's arrival there had been others before him who tried to confront Bomber Elite but they all failed.
Levitating across the elevator instead of physically walking, and above the elevator's floor during the last half of the battle; creating a gravitational field that sucks everything into one big energy ball that causes a massive blast upon explosion; firing psychic energy in the form of rings; summoning four psychic energy spheres with electrical barriers that quickly grow over time

During the duration of the whole battle within Physco Elevator, when Bomber Elite randomly teleports to try catch White Bomberman off guard and to surprise him with his hidden bombs
- Mental force field generation
Serves as a main source of protection; only goes out when Bomber Elite lets his guard down
Bomber Elite uses this when hiding several of his Big Bombs across the elevator; to fool White Bomberman by creating two clones of himself that are capable of psychic power like him; and to change himself into another form like a blue sphere
- Bomb generation
Here, Bomber Elite is the only Crush Bomber to only rely on Big Bombs; White Bomberman has to charge for certain amount of time to make a Big Bomb, while the other Crush Bombers usually use small normal bombs
- Hidden Bomb
Bomber Elite will levitate across the elevator and throw out several Big Bombs in a random pattern before immediately hiding them with his powers one by one. This forces White Bomberman to play a guessing game as he tries to avoid the hidden bombs that explode upon appearing.
- Triple Image
Bomber Elite will cross his arms and taunt White Bomberman before generating two split images of himself, all capable of psychic power, that circle around White Bomberman firing psychic rings that hurt when touched. Unless Bomber Elite is taken out with a Big Bomb, the two images will get together and team up with the real one to take him out by firing a stream of psychic rings.
- Orb of Destruction
After a series of three Hidden Bombs (see above), Bomber Elite will call out a warning before creating a gravitational field that will suck in everything in its path and form a concentrated energy ball that gradually grows. This is until Bomber Elite unleashes that energy by uncorking a massive and powerful energy blast.
- Bomber Armageddon
Bomber Elite's final attack, and his most deadliest. When finally realizing that White Bomberman isn't following his "games", Bomber Elite becomes angered and levitates himself into the air. He then creates four spheres, their cores filled with powerful psychic energy, that quickly grow large enough to cover almost the entire floor of the elevator.
(Note: After Bomber Armageddon, Bomber Elite's standard attacks become more difficult to avoid and powerful in terms of damage.)
- Defeat Bomber Elite in under 4:00
- When Bomber Elite finishes his basic teleportation technique, his force field will go down. Stun him with a Big Light Bomb. This can only be done before he loses one heart since she will switch to the Triple Image afterward.
- When Bomber Elite finishes his Hidden Bomb technique, her force field will go down. Stun him with a Big Light Bomb. This can only be done before his life is half down since she will then always follow up with Orb of Destruction.
- When Bomber Elite finishes his Orb of Destruction technique, his force field will go down. Stun him with a Big Light Bomb.
- When he performs the first part of her Triple Image attack (the three images circling around you), blast the real Bomber Elite with a Big Light Bomb. You may not damage him, but you will still be credited for the Lightning Card.
- Bomber Elite is probably based on Great Bomber. Both are the leader of their gang and both uses invulnerability.
- The head of Mama, from the anime Bomberman Jetters, is modeled like Bomber Elite
- He is often mistaken to be Female, due to a feminine voice actor in both English and Japanese versions, like Pulsar Bomber from Bomberman Journey; however in cut-scenes, Professor Ein clearly describes Bomber Elite as a Male.
