A Bombchu is an item originating from the Legend of Zelda series. It appears as an item in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS / Wii U and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. Once a player activates a Bombchu by throwing it, it continues moving in one direction in a non-stop path, going over obstacles, walls and even ceilings or under the stage. Once a player touches the traveling Bombchu, it explodes on impact, damaging the player. Bombchus can be destroyed by lava and other attacks, however.

These mouse-shaped bombs crawl on the ground, up walls, and even along ceilings. If you toss one, it will scurry along until it hits an opponent and explodes. They won't blow up you or your friends—so user friendly! They will blow up if struck, though, so be careful. These little mouse-shaped explosives run along floors, walls, even ceilings. Throw one and it'll start running as soon as it hits the floor, getting faster and faster. As soon as it touches an opponent, it'll explode. It'll also blow up if you attack it, so be careful if your own Bombchu's passing by.

Blue indicates exclusive to the Wii U version.
