Bolum[Japanese title] is a robotic bomb-like enemy that debuted in Kirby Super Star. Originally an enemy only appearing in the stage before the Galactic Nova Nucleus battle, it later returned in Kirby: Planet Robobot as an enemy that can be summoned by the game's secret final boss, now providing the Bomb Copy Ability.
