Bomb is an attack that can be used by Bombette in Paper Mario. It costs three FP to use. As the player rapidly taps A Button in order to fill an on-screen gauge, Bombette walks up to one enemy and explodes, damaging the enemy. Her attack can also be used outside of battle to activate switches, destroy cracked walls and to do a strong pre-emptive bomb attack which costs no FP.

In Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door, Admiral Bobbery is also able to use a Bomb attack. To use the attack in this game, the player has to hold down A Button and let go when a red light appears on the screen. Bobbery's Bomb attack does not consume Flower Points. If this attack is used as a First Strike, it can ground flying enemies - even Parabuzzies and Spiky Parabuzzies, which take no damage from the attack. The Bomb attack will also clear away any fog during a battle. A Stylish move can be executed by pressing A Button when Bobbery lands after exploding. Outside of battle Mario tosses Bobbery when using his Bomb technique, so it can activate switches or damage things otherwise out of reach.
