Bob-ombs are living, moving mechanical bombs with eyes, feet, and a wind-up key on the back. They will explode after being jumped on.
Super Mario Maker
Bob-ombs will explode 4 seconds after being hit, destroying any blocks or enemies in its range. Shaking a Bob-omb will ignite it allowing it to explode without first being hit. Unlike in previous games, when a Bob-omb is spin jumped on it is not immediately defeated and is instead kicked in the opposite direction.
Bob-ombs appear in all 4 game styles.
In Super Mario Maker, Bob-ombs can have the following variations;
- Giant Bob-omb: A Bob-omb that is twice as big.
- Winged Bob-omb: A Bob-omb that flies in the air sideways.
Normally a Bob-omb would explode 4 seconds after being hit. Going through a door or pipe will reset the amount of time left until a Bob-omb explodes back to the full 4 seconds.

Bob-ombs are defeated after 1 attack and can be killed the following ways:
- Being hit with an enemy
- Throwing a POW Block
- Swallowing it with Yoshi
Additionally, Bob-ombs will explode 4 seconds after any method of attack instantly being killed.
