The Giant Bob-omb is an item that is used in Super Mario Strikers and Mario Strikers Charged. It is similar to the Bob-omb items, but instead of several Bob-ombs falling in a row, the Giant Bob-omb falls on one spot and explodes, hitting anyone nearby. However, it affects the user's teammates as well, so the item should be used with caution. Wario may also use this in one of his disappointment scenes in Mario Strikers Charged, in which he pulls out a Giant Bob-omb, which explodes on him.

Giant Bob-ombs also appear in Mario Sports Mix in the dodgeball game called Bob-omb Dodge, and are more dangerous than ordinary Bob-ombs. They have a wider blast range than the normal Bob-omb in this game, and cause twenty-five points of damage to the players.

Giant Bob-ombs reappear in Super Mario Maker and Super Mario Maker for Nintendo 3DS. The player can enlarge a normal Bob-omb with a Super Mushroom, turning it into a Giant Bob-omb.

Giant Bob-ombs also appear in Mario & Luigi: Dream Team and Mario & Luigi: Paper Jam as minor obstacles. In the first game, the Elite Trio has an attack featuring a Giant Bob-omb.

In Paper Mario: Color Splash, they act as explosive material to destroy the black paint mixing room of Black Bowser's Castle.
