That's a Bulky Bob-omb. I think it's like other Bob-ombs... but it's huge! Max HP is 6, Attack is 2, Defense is 1. It's weird... It never attacks, but once its fuse is lit, it'll blow up on its own eventually. I don't mind it taking itself out of the battle, but that explosion hurts us, too! Oh, and when it powers up, that Attack power is 8, so watch out! Fire and explosions light its fuse, so I guess setting it off early is one strategy... You can run, too, but if you're gonna fight, beat it before it goes off!

Bulky Bob-ombs are massive pink Bob-ombs in Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door. In battle, they utilize a series of stat-raising moves before finally exploding. The explosion cannot be guarded.

A Bulky Bob-omb always goes through the following pattern of moves:

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

Hitting the Bulky Bob-omb at any time with a fire or explosive attack will immediately cause it to explode, dealing 2 damage plus any accrued boosts to Mario, his partner, and all other enemies. The explosion will chain-react with other Bulky Bob-ombs.

They also appear as part of the audience (where they take up two seats), and may blow up and kill everyone around them as well as scaring away all the Punies.

They are not to be confused with Bob-ulks, which are slightly smaller and purple in colour.
