The Motion-Sensor Bomb in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate
|First appearance||Super Smash Bros. (1999)|
|Latest appearance||Super Smash Bros. Ultimate (2018)|
The Motion-Sensor Bomb, or Motion Mine, is an item used in the Super Smash Bros. series. Various versions of the item have appeared in the series, but they all function similarly. Once used, the bomb is set on the ground or another surface until someone gets close enough to it, causing it to explode.
In the Japanese version of Super Smash Bros. Melee, the Motion-Sensor Bomb is actually a Proximity Mine from Perfect Dark. However, in the North American and PAL versions, it is still the Proximity Mine from GoldenEye 007 (although in the actual trophy description, its game of origin is sneakily listed as "Top Secret").
In Super Smash Bros. Brawl, the Motion Sensor Bomb has a more unique design, since Nintendo could no longer use the GoldenEye 007 design due to Rare being bought out by Microsoft. In Super Smash Bros. Brawl, unlike in the previous games, the Motion-Sensor Bomb can disappear in a set amount of time, hindering its effectiveness.
The Motion-Sensor Bomb reappears in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS / Wii U and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, with another redesign: the item now looks like a small bright-red dome with what appears to be an eye design on top and purple frame. In the latter game, when someone activates the bomb, it beeps while the camera zooms in on it before it explodes.

|Motion-Sensor Bomb||File:SSBM Motionsensorbomb.png||TOP SECRET||The perfect accessory for ambushes, the Motion-Sensor Bomb has been a favorite covert weapon of spies and other stealthy operatives. It adheres to any surface, and once armed, detonates with incredible force when it detects motion in its range. In the frantic world of Super Smash Bros., it doesn't take long for it to go.|

Super Smash Bros. Brawl
|Motion-Sensor Bomb||File:BrawlTrophy513.png||GCN Super Smash Bros. Melee||An item that, when placed, will detonate when someone gets too close. It can be stuck on ceilings, walls, and floors. It doesn't matter who places this thing--it'll explode regardless of who passes by. Its explosive power is high, and it launches players with ease. It's small and lies almost flat on surfaces, so it can be very difficult to see.|

Wii U Super Smash Bros. for Wii U
|A tiny bomb that explodes in a big blast when it detects movement. Stick it to the walls, floor, or ceiling, and wait for it to arm. Long-range weapons can destroy it, but only if your opponents remember it's there. Don't forget yourself, though, or it'll be you caught in the explosion!||This little bomb might not look like much, but it's primed to explode when it detects movement, and it packs a serious punch! You can stick it on walls and ceilings, and it can be detonated by long-range attacks. With just a little bit of strategy, you can do a LOT of damage!|
Blue indicates exclusive to the Wii U version.

- In GoldenEye 007, the Motion-Sensor Bomb did not have the green aura surrounding it when activated; this effect was added exclusively for Super Smash Bros. Melee.
- The trophies for Super Smash Bros. Brawl and Super Smash Bros. for Wii U list the item's first appearance as being Super Smash Bros. Melee; regardless of whether or not Goldeneye 007 or Perfect Dark are considered, the item still appeared earlier than Melee in the original Super Smash Bros.
