Remote Bomb functions similarly to Bomb in the previous titles in which Link creates a bomb and can throw it. Rather than exploding upon contact with an opponent or a surface however, it will bounce off. Remote Bomb will remain as a physical projectile for thirty seconds until Link presses the Down Special button to detonate it or if it connects with fire. When detonated, Remote Bomb will create a circular radius which knocks the opponent backwards. If Remote Bomb is held by another opponent or pocketed by Villager or Isabelle, Link cannot detonate it. Link can only summon a maximum of one Remote Bomb at a time.
Remote Bomb originates from Breath of the Wild, as an object created from the Remote Bomb rune in the Sheikah Slate. It functions identically to how it does in Smash, though Link can also create a cubical bomb in additional to its spherical counterpart, and its only method of detonation is manual as opposed to fire.
