Bombs are recurring enemies and summons in the Final Fantasy franchise. They are red fireball-shaped creatures with yellow eyes and a pair of hands, and their face is always snarling, exposing their fang-like teeth. Bombs first appear in Final Fantasy II. Bombs have Self-Destruct as their signature ability, which they usually use if their HP is critically low; the move deals heavy damage, but it defeats the Bomb in the process. In several of their appearances, Bombs can also use fire-based abilities.
Final Fantasy series
Final Fantasy IV
In Final Fantasy IV, Bomb appear as both an enemy and summon. As enemies, Bombs are only encountered at Mt. Hobs. A Bomb Summon spell is one of the few summons that are dropped by enemies, specifically Balloons and Dark Grenades. It costs 10 MP for Rydia to summon a Bomb, which then uses Self-Destruct on an enemy.
The game introduces two variants, Mom Bomb and Dark Grenade. During the Mom Bomb boss fight, if it explodes, it breaks into three Bombs and three Dark Grenades.
Final Fantasy V
In Final Fantasy V, Bombs are rare enemies which are encountered at the area surrounding Jachol and in the sunken Walse Tower of the Merged World. In the game, Bombs were given a critical attack, Body Slam. Bombs retain their signature Self-Destruct ability, which is also a Blue Magic spell that certain jobs can learn.
One of their variants, Grenades, also return as enemies, and another variant, Purobolos, make a reappearance as a boss.
Final Fantasy VI
In Final Fantasy VI, Bombs are encountered on the Phantom Train and in the Bomb forest. Besides Self-Destruct, Bombs also have Blaze for an ability. Strago can learn the Lore ability Self-Destruct from them, and Relm can use Sketch to replicate either of a Bomb's attacks in battle: Self-Destruct or Blaze.
Final Fantasy VII
In Final Fantasy VII, Bombs are encountered at Mt. Corel. They can use three attacks, Ram, Bomb Blast, and Fireball. Since this game, Bombs no longer appear in large groups, and rarely do three appear in the same battle. However, Bombs have a much higher HP than in other games. If a Bomb is attacked three times, they perform Self-Destruct, randomly selecting a target to inflict heavy damage upon.
In Chocobo Racing, Bombs are used as a countdown before each race. Once all three are activated, the race begins.
Final Fantasy Fables: Chocobo Tales
Bombs appear in a few microgames:
- In Blazing Blocks, the objective is to tap rocks and line up three or more Bombs to blow up the crystals.
- In Bomberwall, which is a Minesweeper-like microgame, the goal is to tap the blocks indicated by the arrows. Tapping an incorrect block reveals a Bomb, which then explodes. The game then reveals which blocks were empty and which had Bombs.
- In Malboro Masher, one of the ways to lose is by tapping a Bomb.
Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles series
Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles
In Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles, Bombs are encountered as enemies in a few areas. They first appear in Mine of Cathuriges, and there are a couple of smaller ones who appear in the scenery, where they are used as makeshift lanterns hanging from the ceiling.

Mario Hoops 3-on-3
In Mario Hoops 3-on-3, Bombs appear in the Bowser's Castle and Rainbow Road courts, where they jump out of the lava along with several Lava Bubbles. The Bomb then floats over the court, and the player can touch the Bomb with the Stylus to make it explode. All other characters affected by the explosion get burnt and start running around. If a character touches a Bomb, they get knocked back and lose the ball.
