Bowser Bomb (item)

From the Super Mario Wiki, the Mario encyclopedia
The Bowser Bomb

The Bowser Bomb is an item in Mario Party 2 and is obtainable only in item minigames. Once obtained, the character reacts in a different manner, not like when receiving another item (complete with the announcer saying "Got Item?" in a confused tone, as opposed to the usual cheerful "Got Item!" with an exclamation). Unlike the other items, the Bowser Bomb activates automatically at the end of the turn before the Minigame event, giving opportunity to Bowser and Koopa Kid's turn. Koopa Kid will turn into Bowser and roll three Dice Blocks, making way around the board from his current location (a former Star Space). If Bowser meets a player, he steals all of their Coins. After his turn, Bowser simply disappears.

Bowser's costumes also depended the board where took place on.

Using a Plunder Chest to steal a Bowser Bomb and then attempting to manually use it causes this text box to appear.
  • This is Donkey Kong's favorite item despite being classified as a bad item. According to the Mario Party 2 manual and character selection screen, this is because Donkey Kong thinks he can take down Bowser in a fight.
  • If the Bowser Bomb is stolen through a Plunder Chest, it can be used manually. However, doing so only brings up a text box saying: "You cannot use a Bowser Bomb here.".
  • If Bowser's Multiplying Toads is still occurring, the fake will reveal himself by transforming into Koopa Kid due to the effects of the Bowser Bomb, thus canceling the Multiplying Toads in the process.
