The Bomb Core (ボムの魂, Bomu no Tamashī?), also called Bomb Spirit, is a recurring item in the Final Fantasy series often acquired through enemies like Bombs. It often inflicts heavy Fire-elemental damage or heavy non-elemental damage to all enemies, or otherwise acts like Self-Destruct, killing the user to damage enemies proportionally to their HP.
