The Bomb is an enemy from Final Fantasy XIII first encountered in the Vile Peaks.

Stats[edit | edit source]

Battle[edit | edit source]

Bombs start battles at half HP, but heal themselves and other allied Bombs as they attack the party. When their HP is close to full they begin their Self-Destruct attack, which deals more damage the higher the Bomb's HP is when they explode. All of the Bomb's attacks are Fire-elemental. Bombs are susceptible to Fog. Detonated Bombs do not award any CP.

Strategy[edit | edit source]

It is best to start with an offensive paradigm like Slash & Burn (Commando/Ravager) and defeat the Bombs as quickly as possible. Even if they begin their Self-Destruct attack, depleting their HP will lessen the damage of the resulting explosion. Equipping Ember Rings will reduce damage, giving the player more time to go on the offensive.
