Bamboo is a character first appearing in pop'n music. Starting in pop'n music 6 Bamboo appeared as a one of the default player characters, specifically for Expert Mode. While his appearances waned later on, he still remained as the image character for Expert Mode up until pop'n music 18 せんごく列伝. He's childhood friends with Sylvester, who's like a brother to him.[3]

Design[edit | edit source]

Bamboo's initial appearance shows him with a large pink afro and blue star sunglasses. He wears a red vest, white gloves and boots, and flared beige pants with a peace sign necklace. This design is used again in pop'n music 6, albeit with gold stars on the front of his pants.

In pop'n music 7 he wears a beige jumpsuit with a red collar, a large belt star buckle, fingerless gloves, and white boots. The back of his suit says "LOVE" below a rainbow star symbol.

In pop'n music 8 he wears a sleeveless grey jacket with yellow pants, white boots, red spiked bracelets, and a bright pink feather boa.

In pop'n music 10 he wears an all red suit with white boots and frills along the sleeves, collar, and waist with several beads in his hair.

最近、ニッボンの古式武道にはまっているらしい。何かダンスに通じるものがあるのかな? Lately, he's been into traditional Japanese martial arts. I wonder if that can be made into a dance?

File:Bamboo 10 Profile.gif 担当は私なのですが、アニメ動画は別の人なのです。(気になる人は、ゲームのスタッフロールをチェックしよう)

バンブーの新たなる側面が現れているアニメーションですが、制作中は頭といっしょに顔までしぼんででいるような 気がして気がしてしょーがありませんでした。

これがわたくしのポップンキャラデビュー作でございます。実は変なバンブーは何回か描いたことがあるのですが(ご褒美ムービーとか)、今回はさすがに真面目に描きました。 終えてみると、バンブーの持つ怪人っぷりがちょっとでてないのが残念です。でもフィーバーアクションはお気に入りです。ちなみにエキスパートモードのバンブーの腕を倍に増やしたのも私です。
