This article is about the enemy in Kirby Air Ride, and should not be confused with Balloon Bomb.

Balloon Bomber is an enemy that only appears in Kirby Air Ride. Its basic appearance is that of an elongated, "shark-finned" bombshell, bearing a skull mask, and is thought to be a bomb itself, although it rarely ever detonates. However, if Kirby attacks it directly, it will recoil, flying away and—unlike most enemies—exploding after flying a short distance.

Although it has not directly appeared in any game other than Kirby Air Ride, the enemy has also made various cameos in other games. In Kirby Super Star Ultra, for instance, it appears among the spectators watching the fight between Kirby and King Dedede. It also makes an appearance on one of the assorted cards in Kirby Card Swipe. Additionally, it is drawn by Paint Roller during his battle with Kirby in Kirby: Canvas Curse.
