Bomb Derby is the third available Bros. Attack that Mario can use in Mario & Luigi: Dream Team and Mario & Luigi: Paper Jam. In the former, Mario obtains this Bros. Attack after gathering 10 Attack Pieces in Driftwood Shore. In the latter, Mario obtains this Bros. Attack after throwing a Bomb Bud at Nabbit during the first visit in Gloomy Woods.

Immediately after initiating this attack, Mario and Luigi run into the foreground, and Mario will chuck a bomb into the sky, which causes twelve bombs to fall on to Luigi, all of which Luigi catches in a stack. The player must move the Circle Pad to the right to pass the bombs to Mario, and press A Button to make Mario hit the bomb toward the enemies with his hammer, each exploding upon contact. If Luigi takes too long to pass the bombs to Mario, any remaining bombs will explode and the Bros. Attack will end. The bombs will also bounce out of sight if Mario fails to hit them. At the end of the stack lies a big bomb, which will do regular damage like the other bombs and end the attack. Hitting five, seven, nine and twelve bombs will result in a "OK!", "Good!", "Great!" and "Excellent!" rating respectively. In Mario & Luigi: Paper Jam, the last bomb deals higher damage and all the bombs do fire damage.
