Boomer (Super Paper Mario)
Boomer is the third of many different Pixls that Mario, Peach, Bowser, and Luigi discover in Super Paper Mario. His special ability is to turn into a bomb that explodes, as alluded to by his name. His explosive ability fulfills the same role as Bombette from Paper Mario, and Admiral Bobbery from Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door.
Boomer can be used to open up areas that were once closed off by barriers, and his explosions can defeat enemies at a distance. The player must press on the Wii Remote to set and then detonate the bomb. Eventually, Boomer will also blow up on his own, or he can be detonated immediately by being hit with Bowser's Fire Breath. It is possible to throw Boomer a short distance by setting him, then quickly switching to Thoreau and picking him up. The only way the player can defeat Shlurps, Shlorps, and Dark Shlurps is to get them to swallow Boomer once, twice, or thrice respectively. Also, in Chapter 3-4, Peach uses Boomer to blow up Francis' laptop after Francis uses Swoon.exe to try to flirt with her.
Before joining Mario's party, he asks the following questions. No matter how they are answered, they are virtually the same, just with different emphasis:
