Kick Bombs are bombs introduced in Super Mario 3D World. They are patterned after soccer balls to indicate that they can be kicked forward. They appear in Bowser's Highway Showdown as one of the main obstacles throughout the level, and they are the only way to defeat Bowser when he is riding his Koopa Chase, where he tosses the bombs from. Kick Bombs then appear during the rematch with Bowser in Bowser's Lava Lake Keep. The explosions are capable of breaking Rock Blocks and defeating enemies.
During the Koopa Chase boss battles, if the Kick Bombs are swiped at or rolled into, and connects to Bowser, they will do triple the damage, and could allow Bowser to be defeated in three hits instead of nine. The player cannot kick a Kick Bomb that is flashing red, as it will otherwise hurt the player.
