Dr. Ellidy transformed several Bombbearers into robotic assistants after they were left behind on Isolated Island. Alongside such Badniks as Needlenose, Hoverby, and Pirahna, they protected the island from attackers. Unfortunately, they were subsequently possessed by Phage during her attack on the island and used to attack Tails and Big the Cat, but were later freed by Overclocked Nicole.

- In Knuckles' Chaotix, the Bombbearers were so called because of the large spheres that they carried around, though oddly they never used them as weapons. Ellidy's Bombbears were bereft of these spheres, presumably due to being repurposed for peaceful use by the doctor.
- In the video game Bombearer debuted in, Knuckles' Chaotix, the robot was red instead of yellow. With Pirahna being colored red in the comics and yellow in the game series, it is possible the colors were accidentally swapped.
