Tail Bob-ombs[1] are Bob-ombs with tails which appear in Super Mario 3D Land. Unlike ordinary Bob-ombs, they have the ability to descend slowly from the sky. They are not able to stand upright, and remain sitting down on the ground in the spot they land at and quickly explode. They only appear in World 7-4, Special 7-3 and Special 8-Crown.

Jumping on or running into these enemies has little effect, and it merely shifts the Bob-omb's position. However, they can be blown up prematurely by throwing a fireball at them as Fire Mario. They can damage Mario (or Luigi) by being near the bros. when they self-destruct. Tail Bob-ombs behave in a similar way to Para-bombs in previous games.
