Moto is Bomberman's patrol vehicle[1] that appears as a Special Item in Wario Blast: Featuring Bomberman!, giving the player an ability to jump over indestructible blocks. The item is obtained after defeating Thunder Cloud in Round 5. After collecting Moto, the player starts the next round riding it. Moto allows the player to jump over the solid blocks that cannot be destroyed with a bomb. The player can ride into one of these blocks to jump over it, as long as there is a gap after the block. Moto does not work on destructible blocks.

Wario's use of Moto in Wario Blast: Featuring Bomberman! makes it the first game in which Wario rides a motorcycle, preceding the appearance of the Wario Bike in WarioWare, Inc.: Mega Microgame$! by nine years.

  • As seen in the ending screen, the license plate on the motorcycle reads "Hu" in reference to Hudson. The ending scene of Bomberman riding the motorcycle in a profile view is also an homage to the end credits animation in Lupin III.[4]
