Variant of BuckBot

BuckBombs[1] are robotic bomb chickens that appear as enemies during the Factory area of Donkey Kong Country Returns and Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D. BuckBombs are the explosive counterpart to BuckBots, behaving almost the same as them.

BuckBombs behave similarly to Bob-ombs from the greater Mario franchise. When the Kongs jump on a BuckBomb, it starts to glow red and beep, thus signaling their detonation. If the Kongs are caught within the blast radius from a BuckBomb exploding, they lose a heart. Alternatively, the Kongs can instantly defeat BuckBombs by rolling into them. Donkey Kong can pick up a BuckBomb and throw it at other enemies, including the durable red Pyrobots.
