A bomb[1] is an enemy in the game Virtual Boy Wario Land. They are found only in Stage 10, where they hatch from eggs that Coo-Coos lay throughout the stage. Upon hatching, bombs will run towards Wario. They explode after a short amount of time, potentially harming him. Coo-Coos can rapidly lay three to four bombs, before they return inside the clock that they emerged from.

Bombs may be defeated by any of Wario's physical attacks. They cannot be stunned, as a simple jump will defeat them. Bombs cannot be defeated by the flames of Sea Dragon or King Dragon Wario, as they are too short for the flames to reach them.
