Bomber is an enemy from the Kirby universe who first appeared in the Smash Bros. series as a trophy in Super Smash Bros. Brawl and Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and Wii U. He then became an explosive item in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.

Trophy Description


One dangerous dude-as evidenced by the skull drawn on his body. Bomber walks around on two legs, but whenever he falls from stairs or other high places, he hits his head and explodes, covering a significant blast radius. Kirby can suck him up to learn the Crash ability, the ultimate weapon for wiping out every last enemy on the screen. Use it once and it's gone!

Trophy Description


If you think a bit of mystery is the spice of life, you'll be disappointed here. If it looks like a bomb and explodes like a's a bomb! A cute bomb, though, I admit. If he falls or bumps into something, he'll explode. With the right timing, you can throw him at enemies and do loads of damage!

In Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

Bomber spawns walking around, similarly to a Bob-omb. If left alone, he will eventually topple off an edge and slow down time before detonating in a large, powerful explosion, much like in its original series.

Bomber can also be used as a held item. When picked up, the user will lift him above their head for several seconds, much like the Special Flag. Doing this will slow down time before Bomber detonates, resulting in a massive explosion around the user that deals heavy damage and knockback to any nearby opponents; this does not harm the user. However, if held and left unused, Bomber will eventually detonate after a set timer, which can harm the user as well. If Bomber is hit with an attack as he is walking around, this will also trigger him to explode.
