Template:OkamiCharacter Bakugami (爆神) is the Celestial Brush God of the Cherry Bomb. He appears as a boar running on top of a large bomb usually followed by piglets carrying torches to light the cherry bomb. His constellation can be found in Shinshu Field.
Cherry Bomb is a very powerful technique, creating a lighted bomb out of thin air by drawing a circle with a line going into it. A larger circle creates a bomb closer to the camera position and a smaller circle creates a bomb farther away, but the amount of damage remains the same.
Cherry Bombs can be used to damage enemies or open a hole in a cracked wall. There are also a few uncracked walls that can be bombed open to reveal Treasure behind them, and the technique is necessary to navigate through the Digging minigames.
The bombs explode when they touch a destructible object (including other bombs after upgrades), or when their fuses run out or are directly ignited. Amaterasu is immune to the bomb's effects and can roll them around before they explode. Power Slashing bombs will make them disappear, and using Waterspout on them will stop their fuses. Bombs can also be blown via Galestorm.
At first, only one cherry bomb can be on screen at a time, however, after certain upgrades up to 3 bombs can be drawn. The upgrades also increase the power of the individual bombs.
ChildrenIn a trailer for Okamiden, the piglets, who are the children of Bakugami make a return and are the ones who grant Chibiterasu the Cherry Bomb technique.
Ah... Amaterasu. Origin of all that is good and mother to us all...
Too often, it is easy to forget that which we cannot see.
Hidden away, I had lost track of you. But now my soul is at ease.
I, Bakugami, god of explosive force, lend my power to your cause.
Use the Cherry Bomb to lay waste to foes and obstacles alike!
