Bob-ombs are little bombs that have yellow coloured feet and and seem to be sentient. They first worked for Wart in Subcon as members of the 8-Bits but soon worked for Bowser as members of the massive Koopa Troop. Their 4D counterparts work for the Roopa Troop.

Known counterparts are Red Starballs, rainbow counterparts from Rainbowl, X-Balls, and their 4D counterparts.


  • Their actual first aperance was in the Japan only game Doki Doki Panic for the Fanicom which was reskinned as Super Mario Bros 2 for Western audiences.
  • Bob-omb often gets misspelled as "Bomb-Omb".
    • In some countries, in the Super Mario Bros. 3 booklet, the same typo can be found.
