Skunpew is an enemy character that first appeared in Super Bomberman 4. He is a purple skunk walking on his front legs releasing yellow fart clouds.
Skunpew moves at a slow pace, randomly turning or reversing directions on any tile space. He also turns upon collision with a wall, bomb, or enemy. He is seen walking on his front legs with his hind legs in the air. Skunpew will harm the player upon contact.
Every now and then, Skunpew will stop to create a cloud gas when he has not already done so or if his cloud has been destroyed. The gas moves independently of Skunpew, and constantly pursues the player. When the gas is destroyed by an explosion, it will explode with a max blast radius. The gas itself does not affect the player, and only one gas cloud of Skunpew can appear on screen at once. After some time, the gas will disappear on its own.
In Super Bomberman 5, Skunpew only turns upon colliding with a wall or bomb or after producing a cloud of gas, and does not pause before turning. His gas clouds also only turn upon colliding with an obstacle, and last for a shorter duration of time. Once the Alarm Device has been destroyed, Skunpew will not stop producing gas.
In Bomberman DS, he produces more clouds more often, and Bomberman will be stunned if he walks into a cloud.
In the artwork, Skunpew has the white stripe on his tail and a nose, but they're not seen in-game. His sprite suffered the same fate as Skunpew has his mouth open showing his tongue and has blushing cheeks, but they're also not seen in the artwork.
