Bomb is a recurring Copy Ability that is characterized by the ability to use explosives in various ways once obtained. Bomb Kirby may throw, bowl, and drop explosive bombs for the purpose of defeating enemies, including aerial enemies. Bomb Kirby's only change in appearance is typically a blue hat, similar to Sword's hat. In Kirby's Return to Dream Land and onward, however, the hat resembles a fireworks cone. Bomb may be obtained by swallowing bomb-based enemies or touching a Bomb Copy Pedestal or Copy Essence Deluxe.

Game appearances

Kirby Super Star and Kirby Super Star Ultra

In Kirby Super Star and its remake Kirby Super Star Ultra, Bombs reappear with Kirby gaining typical bomb abilities, gained by swallowing a Poppy Bros. Jr. with a Bomb. Kirby may also summon Poppy Bros. Jr. as a helper by sacrificing his ability.

Kirby & the Amazing Mirror

In Kirby & the Amazing Mirror, the Bomb ability is one of the many obtainable abilities in the game. Unlike the precedents, however, Kirby gains the Bomb ability by inhaling Foleys or Pranks that throw bombs at Kirby.

Kirby Air Ride

This ability appears in Kirby Air Ride. If Kirby inhales a bomb-inducing enemy, or if he touches a Copy Ability Panel, he receives this ability. By pressing A, he can throw the bomb, creating an explosion that gradually increases diameter. If the A button is pressed longer, the meter fills up more, allowing Kirby to throw farther. An arrow indicates where the bomb is going to land. Kirby can throw only one bomb if he gets this ability.

Kirby Squeak Squad

In Kirby Squeak Squad, Kirby can obtain Thunder Bombs or Ice Bombs by mixing Spark ability with Bomb ability or Freezing ability with Bomb ability. This can be done only after obtaining an Ability Scroll. When used, the Thunder Bomb's explosion causes enemies near it to be electrified. It can also be used to electrocute metal in certain levels. When used, the Ice Bomb's explosion freezes enemies solid and can also be used to harden lava.

Kirby's Return to Dream Land

In Kirby's Return to Dream Land, the Bomb ability reappears with similar functionality as previous games, however, with an aesthetic change. Instead of wearing a blue cap, Kirby wears a fireworks cone. In addition the explosive bomb has a star design on it.

Kirby: Triple Deluxe

Bomb returns as an ability in this installment. However, it takes noticeably longer to deploy bombs in this game than it did in Return to Dream Land. This was likely done to balance the ability for Kirby Fighters.

Kirby: Planet Robobot

Bomb returns as an ability in this game. It is obtainable from Poppy Bros. Jr., as well as certain Waddle Dee Mechs. It is also compatible with the Robobot Armor.

Kirby: Battle Royale

Bomb returns as one of the starter abilities for this multiplayer title. While its move-set has been simplified for the sake of balance, the essential functions of tossing bombs and planting bombs on foes remains intact.

Super Smash Bros. for Wii U

Bomb Kirby appears as a collectible trophy.

Wii U Trophy Description

"When he copies the Bomb ablity, Kirby gets to don a stylish hat just like Poppy Bros. Jr. The hat's appearance varies a little from game to game, but the ability itself is always pretty much the same: pull out a bomb, throw it, BOOM! Careful, though--if you hang on to the bomb for too long, you'll go BOOM yourself!
