This article was created way back in 2006, and it's name has yet to be confirmed by anyone. I added a citation needed template a while ago, but so far, no one has found a name for this. The user who created the article is the same one who created the Mega Toss article and called it "Power Throw", which leads me to believe this name was made up. So with this thing apparently lacking an official name and it not really being any different from other generic bombs in the franchise aside from the smiley face design, I think we should just merge this. There's another kind of purple bomb in the game that's smaller and has a weird face on it, and that is merged with the generic bombs. I don't see what makes these any different.

Is the bomb with the weird face identical to the "Smiley Bomb"? MLPJToadetteWink.gif ToadettetheAchiever 00:18, 19 January 2019 (EST)
One is an enemy projectile, the other a dud prize. Other than that and only one having an uncanny valley face, they're basically the same. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 00:30, 19 January 2019 (EST)
Anyone have a guide? Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 00:58, 19 January 2019 (EST)
Time Turner has the Prima guide. He's been inactive for a month, but his "look for official English names" list includes the Smiley Bomb, so that guide doesn't seem to have a name for it. For the record, the game's manual (page 21) generically calls them "bombs." PMTTYD Dark Bones.pngSig.png 02:22, 19 January 2019 (EST)
For the record, the Prima guide does refer to Mega Toss as Power Throw, but the term "Smiley Bomb" seems to be absent in both guides and in fact "bomb" is used in the context of this one. LinkTheLefty (talk) 23:06, April 7, 2020 (EDT)
