Bomb Mario[1] is a form that Mario can only assume in Super Mario Land 2: 6 Golden Coins. The form does not appear in the game itself, but rather during the file-select screen. If Mario, instead of choosing one of the three Warp Pipes to start a save file, hits the "CLEAR" block located on the right, he transforms into Bomb Mario. When selecting a Warp Pipe in this form, its associated saved data will be deleted.

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