Retaliates with Self-Destruct against whoever attacks it a third time. Use NulBlaze if you can't defeat it before then. Vulnerable to ice, so use Blizzard. Kimahri can learn Self-Destruct.

Scan description

The Bomb of Final Fantasy X is a fiend encountered in various areas in Spira, the first on the Mi'ihen Highroad.

Later in the game, the Bomb appears in Home, summoned by the Guado Guardians; the Grenade can be found on Mt. Gagazet and the Puroboros in the Omega Ruins. Catching all these fiends will breed the Bomb King in the Monster Arena.

Battle[edit | edit source]

After each attack the Bomb will grow, and after the third growth (if it was not defeated), it will explode above a random party member, causing 600 damage (Mi'ihen version) and 1000 damage (Home version). If Kimahri uses Lancet on a Bomb, he can learn Self-Destruct.

Bombs fought in Home.

Bomb has 20% resistance to Dark and Silence. They drop armor with Fire Ward and weapons with Firestrike. Weapons dropped by a Bomb have a unique trait not found in any other weapons (except drops from other Bomb-type enemies), in that they has a Damage Constant of 18, while any otherwise-identical weapon not obtained from a Bomb has a Damage Constant of 16. This is also true for weapons from Grenade and Puroboros, but not for Bomb King.

In the game's INT/PAL/HD versions Bombs also drop weapons with the Distill Power ability.

Strategy[edit | edit source]

All of Bomb's attacks are Fire-elemental, even its physical attack, so using NulBlaze, or equipping armor that reduces fire damage, will be useful. The player can also summon Ifrit who naturally absorbs Fire.
