The Bomb Devils (爆弾魔(ボマー), Bomā—lit. meaning "Bomber" as in the Viz translation) are a trio whose goal is to finish the famous game Greed Island, and to accomplish that, they do not hesitate to kill or to blackmail other players to get their cards.[1]

Bombers Release

"Releasing" the bombs

  • Genthru is the only member of the trio whom doesn't have a tattoo on his head.[2]
  • When Genthru, Bara, and Sub put their thumbs together and speak a certain keyword in unison, the time bombs planted by Genthru will explode simultaneously independently from the timer.[3]
  • Though the name of their trio is the "Bomb Devils" (爆弾魔, probably: Bakudan Ma), the group is actually pronounced "Bomber" (ボマー, Bomā) as indicated by the furigana in the Japanese text.
    • A less likely translation of the kanji, than the more appropriate by context "Bomb Devil(s)" or "Bomb Demon(s)", is "Bomb Magic".
  • The relationship among the members of the group seem to be higher than a simple alliance. Genthru, a normally cruel person, seemed to care for his teammate Bara by placing his wellbeing above his own[4] and similarly, Sub did the same to Genthru.[5]
  • It's possible Sub and Bara fall under the Manipulation and Emission categories in order to help create the bombs.[1]
