Bob-ombast is an attack that can be performed by Admiral Bobbery in Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door after reaching Ultra Rank. At 9 FP, this is the second most expensive move of Mario's partners, only behind Smooch. In order to execute this move, the player must rapidly tap the A Button button to fill a gauge within the time limit. After the time is up, Bobbery will explode and hit all enemies with damage dependent on how much the gauge was filled – up to 8 damage without Attack power modifiers if executed perfectly. Bob-ombast is a parallel to Mega Bomb, Bombette's strongest move in Paper Mario.

This move will flip Clefts and ground winged enemies such as Parabuzzies even though they take no damage from the explosion.

Bobbery can also perform a Stylish move by pressing A Button as soon as he lands on the ground after exploding.
