The Bomb is a flying enemy from Final Fantasy IX found on the plateau of Alexandria.

A Bomb is also encountered on-board the Prima Vista along with Steiner. This battle is predetermined and will end with the Bomb exploding after a duration and when Steiner has taken sufficient damage.




Battle Edit

Bombs can be dangerous to fight, as after using Grow three times they will use Blowup, which inflicts heavy damage to its victim and likely KOs them if fought early in the game.

Strategy Edit

Casting Sleep or Night is effective as Bombs are not immune to Sleep status and sleeping Bombs can be attacked with non-physical skills. Attacking with Wind, Ice, or Water-elemental weapons or skills can help as Bombs are weak to all three, but one should avoid using Fire-elemental attacks as Bombs absorb them. It is recommended for Quina to try and Eat a Bomb early on to learn the valuable Mustard Bomb spell.

Etymology Edit

A bomb is an explosive weapon that uses the exothermic reaction of an explosive material to provide an extremely sudden and violent release of energy.

Trivia Edit

  • If the eidolon, Fenrir's Terrestrial Rage attack is summoned on Bombs, sometimes when they use Grow, their graphic will disappear and they become invisible. If the player then inflicts them with Poison or Darkness, only the status effect's graphics float in the air.
