Bombs Away is the third mission of Bowser's Castle in Mario & Luigi: Paper Jam.


The mission occurs in an arena in Neo Bowser Castle. Mario and co., while using Trio Grab, must defeat Iggy, Wendy, and Bowser in that order, using Bob-ombs that Starlow finds. The three have different tactics: Iggy will throw three Bob-ombs in a vertical line, Wendy will throw three Bob-ombs in a horizontal line, and Bowser will simply throw a Mega Bob-omb which likewise has a larger blast radius. Sometimes, if Starlow cannot find any Bob-ombs for Mario and co., she will use herself as ammo; since Starlow does not explode, the player can wait to throw her at the current opponent for as long as they like, and she will also be thrown in a straight line rather than an arch like the Bob-ombs. The mission is completed once Mario and co. defeats all three bosses. If they get hit by any boss faced a total of five times, they get an instant "Too Bad!"

In the Hard Mode variant, Mario and co. can only take damage three times, Iggy, Wendy, and Bowser fly in more erratic patterns, Iggy and Wendy throw additional Bob-ombs, and Starlow may take longer in finding Bob-ombs.
