That's a Bob-ulk. That's... easily the biggest Bob-omb I've ever seen! It won't attack, but once its fuse is lit, it'll explode after a while. So the problem is... how to beat it before it goes off. I mean, its bomb attack has a power of 16! That's no joke. Seriously, watch out for that. Just go all out to beat it. Pull out all the stops. Or you could just set it off early with fire or explosions. Your call.

Bob-ulks are purple Bob-ombs that are the strongest and most armored subspecies of Bob-ombs. Their name is word play on "bulk", meaning very large. Bob-ulks are solely found in Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door's Pit of 100 Trials. Oddly, Goombella says that they are the biggest Bob-ombs she has ever seen, despite their slightly weaker sub-species, Bulky Bob-omb, being a tiny bit larger in the Tattle Log.

Just like their relatives, Bob-ulks always go through the following pattern of moves:

  1. Lights its fuse
  2. Increases defense by 3
  3. Increases attack by 3
  4. Charges attack by 9
  5. Explodes

Also like their relatives, Bob-ulks can be instantly detonated with any fire or explosive attack, dealing 4 damage plus any accumulated boosts to Mario, his partner, and all other enemies. The explosion will chain-react with other Bulky Bob-ombs.
