Bob-omb Orb

From the Super Mario Wiki, the Mario encyclopedia

The Bob-omb Capsule is a capsule in Mario Party 5, where it can be thrown to a space on the board, or used on the player for free. Its effect is activated when a player passes (or lands on) the space containing the capsule three times. On the third, a Bob-omb will then land in the player's arms and explode, causing him or her to lose twenty coins. If another player is standing on the space, they will lose twenty coins too. In Mario Party 6, it is called the Bob-omb Orb. Players can only place it on a space as a roadblock. Opponents that pass a space containing the orb make a Bob-omb explode on them, cutting the remaining number of spaces they can go in half, but if the player is under the effect of the Metal Mushroom Orb, they will simply kick away the Bob-omb. In Mario Party 7, it returns as an Orb that can only be found on the gameboard Pagoda Peak. Opponents that pass this space make a Bob-omb blow up on them, sending them down to a lower part of the board.
