Bomb Mario[1] is a form that Mario can assume, and exclusively appears in the file-select screen of Super Mario Land 2: 6 Golden Coins. If Mario hits the "CLEAR" block located on the right instead of choosing one of the three Warp Pipes to start a save file, he transforms into Bomb Mario. Selecting a Warp Pipe in this form will delete its associated saved data.

Bomb Wario[2] later appears in Wario Land: Super Mario Land 3 and in Virtual Boy Wario Land, which use an identical method of deleting files.
