A Bomber with Kirby

A Bomber is an enemy from the Kirby series, appearing as an item in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. Similarly to a Bob-omb, it will spawn and then walk around. To utilize it, players must hold the Bomber up with the A button, and a large, heavy explosion will occur afterwards in 1.5 seconds. It is possible for the player who held it up to take damage from it if they are not quick to move away. The closer one is to the center of the explosion, the more damage they take. If the Bomber is not utilized after a certain time, or if it falls off a surface (such as a platform), it detonates, as is its behavior in its home series. Regardless of how it detonates, the Bomber slows down time temporarily before it explodes.
