Bob-omb Car

A Bob-omb Car[1], also known as a Bomb-car[2], is a vehicle resembling a Bob-omb found in Mario Kart: Double Dash!! and Mario Kart Wii. It is found in only three courses: Mushroom Bridge, Mushroom City, and Moonview Highway. This variety of car is only found driving on the main streets, not on shortcuts like the rest of the vehicles.

Bob-omb Cars have also appeared in the Mario Kart Wii competitions. The competitions that they appeared in included September 2008 and May 2009's first competitions.

The effects of hitting a Bob-omb Car has the same effect as getting blown up by either a Bob-omb or a Spiny Shell. Hitting the car with an item such as a Yoshi Egg, Green Shell, Red Shell, Bowser Shell, or Fireballs will also cause the Bob-omb Car to explode. Despite having a lit fuse, a Bob-omb Car never explodes on its own.

Once a Bob-omb Car explodes, a new one appears after some seconds on the road. In Mario Kart: Double Dash!!, they appeared from certain hidden passages on certain racecourses, while in Mario Kart Wii, they just appeared in random locations. On the Mushroom Bridge pipe shortcut, the Bob-omb Car will come out of the entrance, when someone hits one of the existing bombs. In Mushroom City, the Bob-omb Car comes out of the alleyway on the left when players go down the hill and onto the left when someone hits one of the existing bombs on the lower level, and in the "Do Not Enter" alleyway on the upper level.

The Bob-omb Car bears a resemblance to the Mini Bomb Kart, which appears in Mario Kart 64.
