The bounded approximate version of $\varphi$-amenability and character amenability are introduced and studied. These new notions are characterized in several different ways, and some hereditary properties of them are established. The general theory for these concepts is also developed. Moreover, some examples are given to show that these notions are different from the others. Finally, bounded approximate character amenability of some Banach algebras related to locally compact groups are investigated.
