Kab-ombs are a variety of Bob-omb first appearing in New Super Mario Bros. A Kab-omb has an indigo face just like a Bob-omb, except it has smaller circular eyes, big blue lips, and slightly smaller feet. It also has a green fringe around the bottom of its body, and lacks the wind-up key. Unlike regular Bob-ombs, Kab-ombs will be defeated instantly if they are jumped on instead of exploding; however, if they are struck by fire, such as a fireball or volcanic debris, their fuses will become lit and they will turn red and chase Mario or Luigi at increased speeds for a few seconds, before jumping upwards and exploding into fireworks. They can still be taken out by stomping on them even if they are red, though. The only stage they appear in is World 8-8—a level featuring constant eruptions spewing volcanic debris.
Kab-ombs make a reappearance as an item in Mario Golf: World Tour. When a Kab-omb is used, it explodes in midair to drop the ball straight down.
