Location and Uses
Bombs are devices used to create explosions. Only seconds after they are set, they will typically flash red and then explode in a puff of smoke and fire. Like most items in The Legend of Zelda series that come in quantities, Bombs can often be found in various objects, such as Jars, Grass, and Treasure Chests. They can also be purchased in Markets or found by defeating enemies. Bombs can be used in a variety of ways, such as for blowing up rocks or walls, defeating enemies, and solving Puzzles. Since A Link to the Past, Link can pick up, carry, and throw Bombs. In some games, Link can find out which walls can be bombed by hitting or tapping them with his Sword.
The Legend of Zelda
Bombs first appear in The Legend of Zelda and can be used to damage certain enemies or reveal hidden passageways in walls within Dungeons and the Overworld. These passageways often create shortcuts in Dungeons and lead to Caves in the Overworld that contain Shops or Old Men. When used, Bombs are placed directly in front of Link and explode shortly after. Bombs can only be obtained in bundles of four by purchasing them in a Shop for 20 Rupees or by defeating enemies. The only enemies that drop Bombs when defeated are blue Red Octoroks, blue Moblins, red Red Goriyas, red Darknuts, Vires, Gibdos, red Wizzrobes, and blue Lynels. However, sometimes Bombs are rewarded to Link for defeating every enemy in certain rooms within Dungeons. Bombs are needed in order to defeat Dodongos and Link is usually rewarded with Bombs for defeating every Dodongo in a room. Links is always rewarded with Bombs for defeating a Dodongo by bombing their side and hitting them once with his Sword. Finally an obscure message from the Old Man in Death Mountain: "10TH ENEMY HAS THE BOMB" hints to a mechanic where defeating 9 enemies and destroying the 10th with a bomb, all without getting hit, would yield more bombs.
Link can hold up to eight Bombs at the start of the game, but can purchase the ability to hold more from two Old Men in Level 5 and Level 7 of the First Quest and Level 4 and Level 8 of the Second Quest. The first upgrade raises Link's Bomb capacity to 12 and the second raises it to a maximum of 16 Bombs. Each upgrade costs 100 Rupees.
A Link to the Past
Reason: Which enemies drop bombs?
You can help by adding the missing information.
In A Link to the Past, Bombs can be obtained either by finding them in objects or Treasure Chests, by defeating enemies, or purchasing them in a Shop, such as the Bomb Shop in the Dark World. Here Link can buy 30 Bombs for 100 Rupees. Bombs can be used to damage certain enemies or destroy loose rocks, cracked floors, or crumbling walls within Dungeons and the Overworld. When Link uses a Bomb, it is placed in a short distance in front of him and detonates soon after. However, Link can also pick the Bomb up and throw it before it detonates. This allows Link to activate Switches from afar. Bombs are an effective item for defeating Hinoxes, who throw Bombs when Link is nearby, allowing Link to throw their Bombs back at them without using his own Bombs. Bomb Soldiers also attack Link by throwing Bombs at him. Link can destroy the Helmasaur King's mask with Five Bombs instead of the Magic Hammer. Talking Timbers will shoot a Bomb out of their mouth if Link touches their face. If Link gets hurt by a Bomb, including his own Bombs, he will take one Heart of damage. If he is wearing the Blue Mail, he will instead lose half of a Heart and if he is wearing the Red Mail, he will lose a quarter of a Heart.
Link can carry a total of 10 Bombs initially, but can increase the number of Bombs he can carry at the Pond of Happiness in Lake Hylia. Every time Link tosses a total of 100 Rupees into the Pond, the Great Fairy Venus emerges to reward him with either an Arrow or Bomb capacity upgrade. If Link chooses to upgrade his Bomb capacity, Venus will grant him the ability to carry 5 more Bombs each time until he can carry 40 Bombs. At 40 Bombs, Link can upgrade one more time, granting him a maximum capacity of 50 Bombs. All of the upgrades cost a total of 700 Rupees.
Link can temporarily use a special variety of Bomb called the Super Bomb. After completing the Ice Palace and the Misery Mire, Link can purchase the Super Bomb from the Dark World's Bomb Shop for 100 Rupees. After purchase, Link will carry the Super Bomb with him and it will detonate wherever he places it.
In Link's Awakening, Bombs can be obtained by defeating enemies, lifting certain objects such as Jar, grabbing them as Winged Items, or by purchasing some at the Town Tool Shop. Bombs can be used to damage certain enemies or destroy cracked walls and certain objects. Once used, Link can pick up Bombs to reset their detonation time, thus preventing them from exploding until thrown again. Link cannot be hurt by his own Bombs, but he can be damaged by Bombs used by enemies. In addition, there are Bomb-like enemies known as Bombites. If Link equips and uses both a Bombs and the Bow at the same time, he can fire a Bomb Arrow.
Link can initially carry 20 Bombs, but he can upgrade his carrying capacity to 60 Bombs by sprinkling Magic Powder on an underground altar to awaken the Mad Batter. The Mad Batter then asks Link if he is ready to carry more Bombs. If Link agrees, the Mad Batter will increase Link's Bomb carrying capacity.
Ocarina of Time
In Ocarina of Time, Bombs can be obtained in objects, by defeating enemies, or purchasing them at the Goron Shop in Goron City. Here Link can buy 5 Bombs for 25 Rupees, 10 Bombs for 50 Rupees, or 20 Bombs for 80 Rupees. Link cannot use or collect Bombs until he has obtained the Bomb Bag, the main item of Dodongo's Cavern. Link can use Bombs to damage enemies and destroy certain structures, such as walls. When Link uses a Bomb, he will pull one out of his inventory and hold it above his head as the fuse sparks. Link can then place the Bomb down or throw it. The Bomb will detonate after about four seconds, even if Link is still holding it. Link can be hurt by his own Bombs. Several large, yellow rocks can be found across the game which can be destroyed with Bombs. They often conceal Secret Grottos which house Treasure Chests and sometimes Pieces of Heart. If Link has the Shard of Agony,[note 1] he can locate Secret Grottos that are hidden in the ground and can only be accessed by Bombing them open. Bombs are effective for defeating certain enemies, such as Beamos. Bombs are required in order to defeat the Boss of Dodongo's Cavern, King Dodongo.
Initially, the Bomb Bag can carry 20 Bombs. However, Link can upgrade it to the Big Bomb Bag, which holds 30 Bombs, and the Biggest Bomb Bag, which holds 40 Bombs. Link can obtain the upgrades by stopping the Hot Rodder Goron in Goron City as a child and by winning it in the Bombchu Bowling Alley Minigame. Link can also use other varieties of Bombs in Ocarina of Time.
The Bomb Flower is a plant that appears and functions like a Bomb. Link can detonate Bomb Flowers by either picking them up after obtaining the Goron's Bracelet, setting off another Bomb near them, shooting them with an Arrow, or touching them with a burning Deku Stick. The Bomb Flower grows back shortly after being plucked or detonated. Link can also collect Bombchus, which are explosives that move on their own. When Link places them down, they move forward in a jagged line across floors, walls, and ceilings and detonate after a certain period of time or after making contact with an object or enemy.
In Majora's Mask, Bombs can be obtained within objects, by defeating enemies, or purchasing them at the Bomb Shop in West Clock Town. Here Link can buy 10 Bombs for 30 Rupees. In order to collect and use Bombs, Link must have a Bomb Bag. Link can obtain a Bomb Bag by purchasing one at the Bomb Shop in West Clock Town for 50 Rupees. Link can carry 20 Bombs with the Bomb Bag, but can obtain the Big Bomb Bag to carry 30 Bombs and the Biggest Bomb Bag to carry 40 Bombs. Link can purchase the Big Bomb Bag for 90 Rupees at the Bomb Shop in West Clock Town after rescuing the Old Lady in North Clock Town from being robbed by Sakon the thief. Alternatively, Link can buy the Big Bomb Bag for 200 Rupees from the Business Scrub in Goron Village while wearing the Goron Mask. To obtain the Biggest Bomb Bag, Link must buy it from this Business Scrub for 200 Rupees while wearing the Goron Mask.
Link can use Bombs to damage enemies and destroy certain structures, such as walls. On the Second Day, the Honey and Darling's Shop hosts a Minigame in which Link must successfully throw Bombs into baskets while on a spinning platform.
Other varieties of Bombs in Majora's Mask include Bomb Flowers, Bombchus, and Powder Kegs. Powder Kegs are a special, powerful type of Bomb that can only be used by Goron Link. They are used to break the giant rocks blocking the path to Romani Ranch and the Goron Racetrack. Link can replicate the effects of Bombs by using the Blast Mask, a Mask which can cause explosions.
Oracle of Seasons
In Oracle of Seasons, Bombs can be obtained within objects like Pots and bushes. Link can find 10 Bombs in the Gnarled Root Dungeon. Bombs can be used to damage certain enemies and destroy cracked walls within Dungeons. Bombs are needed in order to defeat the Dodongo in Snake Remains. Certain Magic Rings affect the function of Bombs when equipped. The Blast Ring, found at the Western Coast, gives Bombs a 25% damage boost. The Peace Ring and the Bombproof Ring, which are found at random either within a Gasha Nut or after bumping into Maple. The Peace Ring prevents Bombs from exploding when Link is carrying them, while the Bombproof Ring makes Link invulnerable to his own Bombs. Link can also obtain the Bomber's Ring through a Linked Game, which allows Link to set two Bombs at the same time. A Bomb Flower also appears in Oracle of Seasons at the Lava Lake in Subrosia. Link can give the Bomb Flower to the Subrosian Smelter to open the path to the Tower of Autumn.
Oracle of Ages
To obtain Bombs in Oracle of Ages, Link must give Queen Ambi Mystery Seeds. She gives Link Bombs as a reward. Bombs can then be obtained from objects like Pots and bushes. Certain Magic Rings affect the function of Bombs when equipped. The Bomber's Ring, obtained as a possible reward for getting a perfect score on the platinum Goron Dance in the past, allows Link to set two Bombs at the same time. The Peace Ring and the Bombproof Ring, which are found at random either within a Gasha Nut or after bumping into Maple. The Bombproof Ring can also be obtained as a possible reward for getting a perfect score on the gold Goron Dance in the present. The Peace Ring prevents Bombs from exploding when Link is carrying them, while the Bombproof Ring makes Link invulnerable to his own Bombs. Link can also obtain the Blast Ring through a Linked Game, which gives Bombs a 25% damage boost. Bomb Flowers also appear in Oracle of Ages as a key plot element. Link uses a Bomb Flower to free the Goron Elder from a heavy boulder in the past. The Gorons then plant Bomb Flowers all around the Rolling Ridge.
In Four Swords, Bombs can be found in various Stages. They can only be used in the Stage where they were obtained. The Links can use an unlimited amount of Bombs. Although they detonate automatically, they can be detonated manually with the A button before they explode.
The Wind Waker
In The Wind Waker, Link obtains Bombs by completing Niko's second Rope swinging challenges in Tetra's Ship at Windfall Island. Initially, Bombs are far too expensive for Link to afford, with 10 Bombs costing 10,000 Rupees at the Bomb Shop on the southern part of Windfall Island. However, after Tetra and her crew come and steal his Bombs, he lowers the prices. Link can then purchase 10 Bombs for 20 Rupees, 20 Bombs for 35 Rupees, and 30 Bombs for 50 Rupees. Link can also buy 30 Bombs for 60 Rupees from Beedle's Shop Ship. As soon Link has Bombs, he can use the Cannon on the King of Red Lions by using the Bomb item while on the boat. The Cannon allows him to fire his Bombs to distant objects and enemies in the Great Sea. If Link pulls out a Bomb near enemies, they will run away in terror to avoid the explosion. Link needs Bombs in order to defeat the Boss of the Tower of the Gods, Gohdan.
Bomb Flowers can be found on certain islands, such as Dragon Roost Island. Appearing only in the original version of The Wind Waker, Link can use Tingle Bombs, which can be placed remotely from the Tingle Tuner. They can be purchased from the Tingle Tuner for 10 Rupees.
Four Swords Adventures
In Four Swords Adventures, Bombs can be found in various Stages. They can only be used in the Stage where they were obtained. The Links can use an unlimited amount of Bombs. Certain enemies attack Link with Bombs, such as Bomb Soldiers. The Links can temporarily upgrade their Bombs into Level 2 Bombs by tossing a Bomb into a Great Fairy Fountain. Level 2 Bombs are larger and have a larger blast radius. Bomb Flowers also appear in certain Stages. A dangerous type of Bomb known as Big Bombs also appears in Four Swords Adventures. Big Bombs are dropped by Shadow Link and found as traps within Treasure Chests. If the Links are hit by its blast, they will be defeated instantly and must escape to another screen to survive.
The Minish Cap
In The Minish Cap, Link can use Bombs when he obtains the Bomb Bag from Belari in the Minish Woods after completing the Deepwood Shrine. Link can carry 10 Bombs with the Bomb Bag, and can upgrade his carrying capacity to 30, 50, and 99 Bombs with three different Big Bomb Bags. One can be purchased at Stockwell's Shop in Hyrule Town for 600 Rupees, one can be obtained by throwing a Bomb into the Great Mayfly Fairy's fountain on Mount Crenel, and one can be obtained from a Chest at the Wind Ruins after Fusing Kinstones with Belari. Link can also obtain Remote Bombs from Belari, which are detonated manually.
Link can use many types of Bombs in Twilight Princess. In addition to regular Bombs, Link can use Water Bombs underwater and Bomblings, which are exploding creatures that run in a straight line when dropped and detonate upon contact. Water Bombs are needed in order to complete the Lakebed Temple. Bombs can be found in various objects, within Treasure Chests or can be dropped by enemies. Bombs can also be purchased at Barnes Bomb Shop in Kakariko Village. Link can buy 10 Bombs for 30 Rupees, 20 Bombs for 60 Rupees, or 30 Bombs for 90 Rupees. Link can also apply his Bombs to his Arrows, turning them into Bomb Arrows, which detonate the moment they make hit. In the Snowpeak Ruins, many Cannons can be shot after a Bomb is detonated inside them, allowing Link to blast through thick ice or enemies.
Link can obtain three different Bomb Bags. Each Bomb Bag can only hold one type of Bomb, either being 30 Bombs, 15 Water Bombs, or 10 Bomblings. One of the Bomb Bags can be purchased at Barnes Bomb Shop in Kakariko Village for 120 Rupees, another can be obtained by rescuing a Goron in Zora's Domain and another can be obtained from Iza after destroying the rocks in Zora's River. If Link scores 25 points or higher in Iza's Rapids Ride Minigame, she will reward him with the Giant Bomb Bag, which doubles the capacity of each Bomb Bag to carry either 60 Bombs, 30 Water Bombs, or 20 Bomblings.
In Phantom Hourglass, Link can purchase a Bomb Bag from Beedle's Shop Ship for 1000 Rupees. He can also obtain a Bomb Bag by scoring 2500 points at the Cannon Game. Link can carry 20 Bombs with one Bomb Bag and can carry 30 Bombs once he obtains a second one. Link can buy 10 Bombs for 50 Rupees at the Mercay Island Shop and Molida's Store. Link can throw Bombs into Updrafts to blow up obstacles at the top of the Updraft. Bomb Flowers and Bombchus appear in Phantom Hourglass. The Cannon on the SS Linebeck shoots Bombs but has an unlimited supply of shots.
In Spirit Tracks, Link can carry 10 Bombs with the Bomb Bag, 20 Bombs with the Medium-sized Bomb Bag, and 30 Bombs with the Large-sized Bomb Bag. He can obtain one of them by purchasing it at Beedle's Airshop for 500 Rupees, another by beating the current record in the Whip Race at Whittleton, and another by completing Level 2 of the Take 'Em All On! Minigame in Hyrule Castle Town. Link can buy 10 Bombs for 150 Rupees at the Papuchia Shop and 10 Bombs for 200 Rupees at the Goron Country Store. Bomb Flowers can be found in Spirit Tracks. The Cannon on the Spirit Train an unlimited supply of Bombs.
In addition to dropping and throwing Bombs in Skyward Sword, Link can also roll Bombs with an underarm swing and can give it spin to control its direction. The Beetle can also be used to pick up and fly with a Bomb to drop it somewhere else. Link can purchase 10 Bombs for 20 Rupees once he has obtained the Bomb Bag in the Earth Temple. The Bomb Bag can hold 10 Bombs, but Link can add additional Bomb Bags to his Adventure Pouch to carry more Bombs. A Bomb Bag adds 5 extra Bombs, a Medium Bomb Bag adds 10, and a Large Bomb Bag adds 15 Bombs. The maximum amount of Bombs Link can carry is 40 by equipping two Large Bomb Bags.
Bomb Flowers appear in Skyward Sword in place of the traditional “man-made” design of previous installments. Because of this, Link can put plucked Bomb Flowers in his Bomb Bag before they detonate to replenish his supply.
A Link Between Worlds
In A Link Between Worlds, Bombs can be obtained from Ravio's Shop. Link has an unlimited amount of Bombs, but like all items in the game, it takes up some of his Energy Gauge with each use. Bombs can be rented for 50 Rupees and bought permanently for 800.[note 2] Link can upgrade his Bombs to Nice Bombs by bringing 10 Lost Maiamais to Mother Maiamai. The upgrade improves the attack damage and blast radius of the Bombs. In addition to Bomb Flowers, a special type of Bomb Flower known as the Big Bomb Flower appears in A Link Between Worlds.
Tri Force Heroes
In Tri Force Heroes, Bombs can be used to defeat certain enemies and destroy objects. When one of the Links wears the Big Bomb Outfit, all Bombs and Bomb Flowers a Link uses turn into Big Bombs, which have an increased blast radius and inflict double damage. Bombs have a blast radius that reaches one level above or below, while Big Bombs reach two levels above or below.
Bombs first appear in the Moblin Base as one of the three items the Links can acquire, then reappear in the Forest Temple (two items), Bomb Storage, Floating Garden, and Sky Temple (one item per Stage). They also appear in the Fortified Zone and Baneful Zone of the Den of Trials, as well as the Coliseum's Woodlands and The Ruins arenas.
Breath of the Wild

The Legend of Zelda Game Watch
The Faces of Evil
Bombs are used to damage stronger enemies and to destroy breakable rocks and small walls in The Faces of Evil. They are purchased in packs of three for 20 Rubies from Morshu's shop in the Goronu area. Link can carry up to 99 of them.
The Wand of Gamelon
Bombs are used to damage stronger enemies and to destroy breakable rocks and small walls in The Wand of Gamelon. They are purchased in packs of three for 20 Rubies from the Merchant's general store in Sakado. Zelda can carry up to 99 of them.
Ancient Stone Tablets
Super Smash Bros.
Bombs serve as Link's down special move in Super Smash Bros.. When used, Link pulls out a Bomb that can be thrown at other Fighters to cause damage with an explosion on impact. Link will take damage by his own Bombs if he holds on to one by the time it detonates, or if other Fighters catch one thrown by Link and throw it back. Link can also cause damage to his teammates with Bombs. The Bomb counts as an item such that Link cannot carry another item along with bomb, and that using a bomb in single play mode will remove the "No item" bonus.
Super Smash Bros. Melee
Bombs serve as the down special move of Link and Young Link in Super Smash Bros. Melee. Link's bombs function the same as they do in Super Smash Bros.. When used by Young Link and thrown, the explosion from his Bombs hit multiple times.
Freshly-Picked Tingle's Rosy Rupeeland
Two types of Bombs appear in Freshly-Picked Tingle's Rosy Rupeeland. The first type, Tingle Bombs, can be concocted by using two Bomb Fruits, two Gelatine, and two Explosive Claws. They are stored in Empty Jars. There are cauldrons of the concoction in Desma's Labyrinth. The second type, Nitro Bombs, are also stored in Empty Jars and are a more powerful version of Tingle Bombs. They are created with Bomb Fruits, three Gelatine, three Explosive Claws, and three Multi-Bomb Fruits. The recipe is obtained from the Stalfos Pirates' Engineer when their pirate ship is being attacked by insects.
Super Smash Bros. Brawl
Oracle of Ages (Himekawa)
Bombs are items kept in the inventory in Hyrule Warriors. They are first obtained in "The Armies of Ruin" Scenario after Link finds them in the field's Mine Entrance. Bombs are thrown in small spurts. They are primarily used to destroy cracked walls and boulders, but can also be used to damage enemies. Some giant bosses, such as King Dodongo, are particularly weak to them and can be used to make their Weak Point Gauge expose. The Bombs can be temporarily upgraded to a giant Bomb by collecting Bomb power-ups, which will throw one giant Bomb that clears a large area. Goron's Bracelet Badges in the Bazaar can be crafted to increase the duration of the upgrade.
In Adventure Mode, normal and Water Bombs appear as Item Cards. Normal Bombs are used to open cave entrances in mountain walls and to destroy boulders on land, whereas Water Bombs are used to destroy boulders on bodies of water. In the Lorule Map from Hyrule Warriors Legends, the Bomb Item Card activates the Rupee Nice Power on the Ravio Board when used.
In the A Link Between Worlds DLC Pack for Hyrule Warriors and Hyrule Warriors Legends, Ravio uses Bombs at part of the moveset for his Rental Hammer Weapon. He can bat a Bomb toward enemies with the Hammer and roll giant Bombs at enemies, shoving it away from him before it explodes.
My Nintendo Picross: Twilight Princess
The first puzzle in the Picross series and the third puzzle in the Mega Picross series depict a Bomb.
