Superstar Saga + Bowser's Minions Description Starts a game of catch with the enemy captain using a Bob-omb on the verge of exploding.

Pass the Bob-omb is the seventh captain command in the Minion Quest: The Search for Bowser mode of Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga + Bowser's Minions. It costs six CP to use. When used, the captain will pass a bomb with the opposing captain. The captain in control of the player must knock the bomb back at just the right timing with A Button each time it heads towards them. The attack ends when one of the captains fails to time their counter correctly or after the attack has gone on long enough, damaging them.

This Captain Command returns in the Bowser Jr.'s Journey mode of Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story + Bowser Jr.'s Journey under the name Volleybomb. It can be used by Bowser Jr. when he's a Ranged Minion. There are modifications to it: the Minions can pass the bomb as well, while they're grouped, there is a wall separating the two teams, and the bomb will damage the entire squad. Bowser Jr.'s team will always be able to deliver the final blow whenever the attack lasts long enough, even if Volleybomb was used by the enemy captain.
