Bob-ombs are wind-up bombs that come in many sizes and are loyal to Bowser. Their main attack is blowing themselves up in front of Mario, which is more damaging than just running into him. Bob-ombs are sentient and even talk, unlike Bullet Bills. Some have speech impediments and say BOMB! after every couple of words.
In Paper Mario, Bob-ombs are primarily found in the Koopa Bros. Fortress, and charge at Mario in battle. There are also friendly Bob-Ombs, the most known one being Bombette, who becomes one of Mario's partners.
In Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door, Bob-ombs primarily appear as allies. Admiral Bobbery is the Bob-omb partner of this game, and a town called Fahr Outpost is inhabited by Bob-ombs. Enemy Bob-ombs appear as fighters in the Glitz Pit. They are called the Bob-omb Squad.
In Paper Mario: Sticker Star, Bob-ombs are occasionally fought in boss levels. They are shot out of cannons as Parabombs by Goombas in Goomba Fortress, and are used in Bowser Jr.'s boss fight on Bowser Jr.'s Flotilla.
Bob-ombs reappear in Paper Mario: Color Splash, along with the same attacks as Sticker Star. They are shot out of cannons in Fort Cobalt, and wander around the Redpepper Crater. Big Bob-ombs are also used to bust through large crates in Black Bowser's Castle.
Paper Mario: This is a Bob-omb. Bob-ombs are pretty temperamental, and they get steaming mad when you attack 'em. Max HP: 3, Attack Power: 1, Defense Power: 0 You'd better not jump on 'em when they're angry or they'll blow up in your face. In fact, stay away entirely. Attack 'em from a distance with items like Hammers. Or you could send in other things, like shells. If they attack when angry, they'll charge in and explode. So you'd better take care of them before they blow!
Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door: That's a Bob-omb. It attacks by blowing itself up. Yeah. Reeeeeeeal smart. Max HP is 4, Attack is 2, and Defense is 1. A Bob-omb will get totally mad if you damage it. They have like, super-short fuses. When it gets mad, it'll charge and explode on its next turn. THAT attack...really hurts. Oh, and if it's mad, it'll blow up at the slightest contact. So don't attack directly! Attack it from a step away with a hammer or hit it with something hard, like a shell.
- In Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door, two more versions of Bob-omb exist.
- Ultra Bob-omb
- Hyper Bob-Omb
