White Bomberman is the main protagonist of the Bomberman series. He is the primary representative of the Bomberman people, who became the dominant inhabitants of Planet Bomber. Like all Bombermen, he has the ability to generate bombs in his hands. There are many incarnations of him represented in the different games of the series, which do not usually keep a consistent description of the character. He is often saving his home planet, the galaxy, or even the universe from disaster.
He is also nicknamed Shiro Bom (しろボン), which has been translated as "White Bomber" in the Bomberman Jetters GameCube game and localized as "Cheerful White" in the English releases of the Bomberman Land series. Occasionally, this is further shortened to simply "Shiro" in the Japanese versions.

Intelligence: Pretty smart, as he is is a highly trained demolitionist, White is so good that he can utilize these bombs to effectively outwit and blow up other bombermen, monsters, and giant robots. He has beaten numerous other experienced bombermen (most notably Black) and imprisoned them for wrong doing. Routinely defeats powerful aliens such as Bagura and Terrorin. They are powerful magicians and scientists that are hell-bent on universal domination.
- Normal Bomb: The garden variety explosive. Does exactly what you'd expect. When held, they can be "pumped" to grow in size, increasing their strength and explosion radius (but leaving Bomberman vulnerable while he pumps them).
- Fire Bomb: The most common type of bomb variant. Creates a cross of flame when it explodes, doing more damage than the Normal Bomb.
- Navarm Bomb:- An upgraded version of the Fire Bomb which uses napalm. Overall, just a stronger, more explosive version of the Fire Bomb.
- Water Bomb: A bomb that creates a gushing torrent of water upon detonation. Useful for putting out fires.
- Ice Bomb: A bomb made of ice which creates a blast of cold, capable of freezing its victims solid.
- Wind Bomb: This bomb creates four gusts of wind, which don't deal any actual damage. Instead, they push people they come into contact with away from the epicenter.
- Rubber Bomb: When kicked or thrown, rubber bombs will bounce in a straight line (and back, if they hit a wall) until detonation, making them dangerous in their mobility.
- Bait Bomb: This bomb attracts (non-intelligent) enemies, such as animals or non-sapient robots, to it before exploding. Its explosion is weaker than that of a normal bomb.
- Remote Bomb: These bombs come with remotes, which lets Bomberman decide when to detonate them.
- Pierce Bomb: Has the same range and power as a Normal Bomb, but is able to blast through multiple walls in each direction at once instead of just one each.
- Mine Bomb: It's a landmine.
- Thunder Bomb: This one releases a bolt of lightning when it detonates, shocking everyone around it.
- Salt Bomb: A bomb that explodes into a cloud of salt. Useful for fighting slug enemies, or people with open cuts I guess.
- Bead Bomb: Marble-sized bombs that can be rolled before detonating. Have smaller, weaker explosions, but high range.
- Light Bomb: This bomb releases a flash of blinding light, which actually freezes time for a brief moment at the epicenter.
- Dangerous Bomb: This is a special type. Created when two moving bombs collide, Dangerous Bombs are massive weapons with enormous destructive potential. When they blow, the explosion is big enough to cover almost an entire battlefield.
- Gravity Bomb: Once they explode, Gravity Bombs create black holes, which can one-shot most foes and destroy otherwise.
Weaknesses: Nothing notable
