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 eventually 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.


Mi'ihen Highroad



Bombs have a 20% resistance to Darkness and Silence. A Bomb will grow every time it is attacked, 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). It will not grow when targeted with group attacks, Self-Destruct, Doublecast, or an attack from a party member under Poison or Zombie.

Bombs use a physical attack, and after growing once, getting Provoked, or when facing an aeon, it will instead use Fire. If Kimahri uses Lancet on a Bomb, he can learn Self-Destruct.

Bombs fought in Home.

Bombs drop armor with Fire Ward and weapons with Firestrike. In the game's INT/PAL/HD versions, Bombs also drop weapons with the Distill Power ability. The weapons dropped by a Bomb have a unique trait not found in any other weapons (except drops from other Bomb-type enemies), 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.


All of the 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.
