I was wondering...[edit]

I was wondering, should Bob-Ombs be considered robots? Also what about Bullet Bills? -- Sir Grodus

Bob-ombs are bombs and not robots. They are both not robots. Paper Jorge ( Talk·Contributions·) Paper Jorge was here at... 20:08, 13 September 2006 (EDT)

Please note that, according to Goombella, we don't even know if Bill Blasters are alive or inanimate objects. So Bob-ombs and Bullet Bills could be living creatures. -- Son of Suns

I think in Mario Party Advance you encounter a Bullet Bill which can speak and you challenge him to a race for a deul mini-game, also they show some level of intelligence in Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga as they utilise a Super Scope (Sniper Bill), not sure about Bill Blasters though. -- Sir Grodus

I don't think Bill Blasters are alive they are just canons that are probably controlled. Little Mouser.PNGPaper Jorge (Talk·Contribs)

Likely. 3dhammer.gif 3D, controlled from the inside? Eeew. 3dhammer.gif

Lets just leave it to "we don't know". Now... whats behind a Shy Guys mask?Knife (talk) 23:03, 21 March 2007 (EDT)

Bob-ombs are more like toys- they have a twisty thing and everything. And as for what's behind a Shy Guys mask, well they obviously don't wants us to know or else they'd show us. And some people have asked me what's behind a Snifits mask which is plain stupid, because Snifits are Shy Guys with gas masks (that shoot bullets... wonder if they've got a gun behind their masks?).M&L (talk) January 2012

Someone should add an SMB3 section to this. Thanos6 01:38, 27 March 2008 (EDT)

Then why don't YOU do it?M&L (talk)

Mario vs. Donkey Kong[edit]

We're missing that game's info, aren't we? This is the second article where I post this. Reshiram.pngSupermariofan14Zekrom.png

Blue Ring[edit]

Should we add about there ring below the fuse witch was gray but in recent appearences its blue
The preceding unsigned comment was added by Dry Bob-omb (talk).

The change in colour should be stated in the section on the game appearance where it first became blue (just like other changes in appearance should be pointed out in the relevant sections), but I don't think it deserves any particular emphasis as it's just a minor detail and few enemies have kept their original looks anyway.--vellidragon 10:08, 4 June 2010 (EDT)

Where exactly are Bob-ombs in M&L:SS? I would think...maybe in...caves, probably. Come to think of it, it appears in several spots, right? BooMP8Official.png PINKBOOZOOKA WET HISUNEXISTENT PANTZ Boozooka.png


Where have they been called that? Magikrazy51 (talk)

I dunno, but I bet someone at Nintendo called one that and everyone thought it was a good idea... but they have "Bob" in their names?!M&L (talk) January 8, 2012

cause they go BOM-OMB

SMB3 has SMW-style Bob-Ombs...[edit]

They're located in the tank level of World 8. They act and look like their Super Mario World counterparts, even exploding after a while by themselves. Liftfreak77 (Want to stop by and say hello?|What I've done?) 14:38, 21 May 2012 (EDT)


Which game has a playable Bob-omb? Zakor1138 (talk) 22:33, 21 September 2012 (EDT) None of them do, unless one of the Mario Party's I'm forgetting does Harryg (talk) 16:27, 1 April 2013 (EDT) Nothing does. Goombob NewMicroGoomba.png 11:00, 12 July 2013 (EDT)

Yes, a minigame in new super mario bros features a red, blue, yellow, or green bob-omb trying to not explode, you play as it dodging fireballs, lava, and a gray bowser statue. Toadbrigade5(Apologies for not loging in)

I'm Confused...,[edit]

In the enemy box it says that they first appeared in Super Mario Bros. 3 but in the article, it says that they first appeared in Super Mario Bros. 2.

Quote change[edit]

I noticed the current quote is referring to the Bob-omb Buddy in SMG2 rather than a regular Bob-omb. Is there a quote we can change it to that is more relevant? Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 12:59, 8 October 2017 (EDT)

The wording still applies to a normal Bob-omb. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 18:17, 29 January 2018 (EST)


Can the quote be changed to

“Nobody's life should be all work, right? I need free time to make my mark in the world. BOOM!”
Bob-omb, Paper Mario

? While this doesn't say that much about them, the current one says nothing. At least this one has the explosion theme, but the current one is just Bob-ombs calling for help. --Magma. (talk) 14:11, July 26, 2020 (EDT)

I agree that this is probably a more appropriate quote, but just to clarify, is this said by a random Bob-omb or the partner (aka Bobby)? LinkTheLefty (talk) 15:58, July 26, 2020 (EDT)
This is from the first PM... Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 16:14, July 26, 2020 (EDT)
You're right, my mistake. LinkTheLefty (talk) 16:45, July 26, 2020 (EDT)
It's said by a Bob-omb in the room where Bombette was trapped by the Koopa Bros. (the same room you recruit her). So, can I change it? --Magma. (talk) 18:11, July 26, 2020 (EDT)
I think it's more suitable than the current one. LinkTheLefty (talk) 18:56, July 26, 2020 (EDT)
Ok, I'll do it --Magma. (talk) 19:18, July 26, 2020 (EDT)
