Senshiyan is an enemy that originated in Super Bomberman.
Senshiyan moves about slowly at a speed of 2, only changing direction after colliding with bombs, enemies, or walls. After a period of one to four seconds, it performs its signature attack, pausing to unleash a stream of fire in one of the 4 cardinal directions. This attack has a range of 4 tile spaces, and can set bombs off early. Senshiyan will damage players on contact and requires 3 hits to destroy.
In Super Bomberman R, Senshiyan appears with a slightly updated appearance. Here, it only takes 1 hit to destroy.
- The name "Senshiyan" comes from the Japanese words "senshi", meaning "soldier", and "yan", a familiar suffix for names.
