Biscuit Defeats Bara

Bara, after being defeated by Biscuit

During the final confrontation with Gon's team, he is lured away from his teammates by Biscuit and faces her in a one-on-one fight.[4] After he manages to land a hit on Biscuit, knocking her down, she reveals her true "gorilla" form and hits him unconscious with a single punch to the face.[1] When all the Bombers are defeated, Genthru asked to heal Bara's injury.[5] So Gon uses a Breath of Archangel card to heal his injury.[6]

Abilities & PowersEdit

Bombers Release

"Releasing" the bombs

Bara has a good degree of physical strength and skills at hand-to-hand combat. He took little damage from Biscuit's blows and managed to hit her and knock her down with a back-handed slap, although she was holding back and had let him strike her on purpose.[1] He has good reactions, having managed to catch an arrow mid-flight in spite of the darkness and the suddenness of the attack.[7]

NenEdit

Bara appears to be a very capable Enhancement user, withstanding Biscuit's attacks with overall superficial injuries[1] despite the latter having defeated Binolt in one blow and without using aura.[8] Bara is fairly skilled at Zetsu, as neither Puhat[3] nor Tsezguerra or his allies could feel his presence.[9] When he and his two teammates put their thumbs together and say a certain keyword in unison, the time bombs planted by Genthru will explode simultaneously.[2]

TriviaEdit

  • In the official databook, his name is "Bara" (identical to the rōmaji for his original name and the version in the Viz's translation).
  • Bara's original Japanese name, バラ (Bara), and more commonly its form written with hiragana, ばら, literally means "rose(s)"—a symbol notoriously used (here implicitly, but more explicitly forward in the story) by the manga author, Yoshihiro Togashi, as a metaphor for bombs, explosions, and the like—meaning clearly linked to the Bomb Devils' abiliity concept. As a suffix for a title (-bara), his name also indicates multiple people—like the "Bomber" being actually more than one person.
  • The trident emblem, tattooed on his forehead and stamped on his shirt, could be related to the fact that the "Bomber" is actually a group composed by 3 people.
