Bubble Bobble Wiki

Hidegons (ひでごんす Hidegonsu?), also known as Incendo, is a recurring enemy in the Bubble Bobble series. They have appeared in most main series Bubble Bobble games, and have occasionally been featured as a playable character in the Bust-A-Move series.



Hidegons are creatures covered almost entirely in purple-gray fur. They have pink arms, and yellow feet with three toes on each foot. Hidegons are also generally shown with a very wide mouth.


Hidegons' main ability is breathing fireballs, which will cause the player to lose a life if it hits them. They tend to move faster than most other enemies, but are unable to jump very high.

Hidegons' name comes from Taito developer Hidehiro Fujiwara, whom the character was based on.

The original American name for Hidegons, "Incendo" is derived from the Latin word to "set on fire".


  • Hidegons is named and designed after Hidehiro Fujiwara, a designer who worked at Taito during the game's development. The Japanese manuals for the Game Boy version of Bubble Bobble and the Super Famicom version of Bust-A-Move reference this, describing Hidegons as a "kaiju from Toyama", where Fujiwara is originally from.
    • Prior to the release of Bubble Bobble, Fujiwara was credited as "Hidegons" in the arcade version of Arkanoid.
