The Bomb Nozzle is an item, first appearing in Kirby's Return to Dream Land which fires repeated small cannonballs at an arc when carried.

The Nozzle itself is red with gold accents and a blue star on its base. The star changes color as the Nozzle becomes more unstable, eventually flashing red to indicate that the Nozzle will break soon.

The Bomb Nozzle can be picked up, carried, and thrown like many other items in the game. Similarly, the character holding the Nozzle can only make one jump and cannot use any attack but Slide. When thrown, the Nozzle itself can deal minor damage to enemies. The main selling point of carrying the Bomb Nozzle is that, while held, it will repeatedly and rapidly fire cannonballs in an arc in front of it, heavily damaging any enemies caught in its fire and destroying blocks, including Metal Blocks in its wake.

Effective use of the Bomb Nozzle is required to obtain certain collectibles, including several Energy Spheres.

Kirby uses the Bomb Nozzle to fell some Bronto Burts in the Cookie Country level.

The Bomb Nozzle also makes an appearance in Kirby: Triple Deluxe, specifically in the Kirby Fighters Sub-Game. It serves the same function as before, though it burns out more quickly and its arc is smaller.
