Pakupa is an enemy that originated in Super Bomberman.
Pakupa moves at a speed of 2, only changing direction when colliding with walls or other enemies. If a bomb is within 8 spaces of Pakupa, and there are no blocks between them, Pakupa will pursue and devour it. Pakupa requires 3 hits to destroy.
In Super Bomberman 5, Pakupa requires only 1 hit to destroy, and pursues the players' bombs regardless of how many spaces away they are.
- The name "Pakupa" is based on the Japanese word "Pakupaku" which is onomatapeia for eating and is also interestingly the name of another enemy: Pakupaku.
- In Super Bomberman 5, if two bombs are placed on opposite sides of Pakupa, the AI will become confused and will constantly change directions to face both bombs.
