The Remote Control (sometimes shortened RemoCon) is a recurring power-up in the Bomberman series. This bomb allows you to detonate bombs anytime you like. This makes it much more convenient for timing your blasts. The item looks like a heart with a bomb on it and can be difficult to come across because of its high value. Despite this ability, if another bomb explodes next to a remote control one, the remote control bomb will explode and thus can render the ability useless if performed correctly.

The bomb usually has a different appearance when the item is collected. The bomb will look more like a mine and sometimes has a small antenna on top of it. The item works by setting the bomb and using a different button to detonate it. This makes it easier for the player to command the ability. This item, however, is usually lost whenever the player is killed, This happens in Bomberman (NES), and obviously in multiplayer. Brain Bomber is the creator.

Oh yeah! Don't forget! Be careful not to go to crazy with this power up and the Invincible Suit because time on the suit will run out causing death to you! So do not use to many bombs while you are invincible!
