The Bomb is a species of monster and a specific monster in Final Fantasy Tactics A2: Grimoire of the Rift.

They are gaseous globes of flame and have access to the deadly Self-Destruct skill, as they have in previous installments of the Final Fantasy series. Some Bombs have the Critical: Quicken reaction ability, allowing them to use Self-Destruct when the skill is at its maximum power. Bombs and Grenades use Flame Attack to heal each other.

Classes[edit | edit source]

This powerful member of the bomb family burns with a searing blue flame.

Unlike their appearance in Final Fantasy Tactics Advance, Grenades are associated with the Fire element instead of Ice.
