Timed Dynamite is an item, first appearing in Kirby: Triple Deluxe which, once picked up, starts its timer, then explodes when the timer goes off.
Kirby: Triple Deluxe
Timed Dynamite bears two volatile sticks adorned with a kitchen clock on the front, which counts down time in increments of eighths. The timer does not start until Kirby or King Dedede first picks it up. While being held, the timer goes down slowly, as the needle travels in a clockwise fashion. If the bomb is dropped or thrown, it will start counting down faster unless picked up again. When it explodes, it is capable of destroying barricade blocks, but will also harm its user if they are too close.
Kirby Fighters games
Timed Dynamite appears as an item in Kirby Fighters, Kirby Fighters Deluxe and Kirby Fighters 2. When it appears, it automatically starts its timer, and when it explodes, the explosion lingers for a while, causing great damage to any poor Kirby or buddy it catches.
Kirby Battle Royale
Timed Dynamite (referred to here as Time Bomb or Timer Bomb) appears in several of the battle modes, where contestants can use them on their rivals. There are a couple of varieties, with the largest variant appearing only in Dedede's Cake Royale.
Timer Bombs appear in the following battle modes:
- Battle Arena - If the fight goes on for too long, Time Bombs start dropping into the arena, in progressively greater numbers until the match is over.
- Crazy Theater - One of the challenges is 'Avoid the blast!', which places a Time Bomb in the arena that KOs any character in one hit; this particular bomb also shows the radius of its explosion before it happens. Contestants must dodge the explosion.
- Rocket Rumble - Time Bombs appear shortly into the game. If they explode near a rocket with fuel in it, some of the fuel will be knocked out. In Dedede's Cake Royale, the Fear the Super Time Bomb League Battle in the Gold League has Super Time Bombs, which knocks all of the fuel out of a rocket it explodes near.
