The ghostly, inexplicably heatless flame from the heart of a bomb.
The Bomb Core (ボムの魂, Bomu no Tamashī?), also known as Bomb Arm, Right Arm, or Inferno, 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.

Bomb Arms (and the related Snoll Arm) are used as crafting materials, and act as a rudimentary grenade. The Bomb Core is an item obtained from Notorious Monster "Friar Rush" which increases attack when equipped.
Bomb Core is one of many Monster Spoils items, and functions differently to its other appearances. The description of Bomb Core is "said to contain a bomb's soul", and it grants Aura and Trance on uses. All Bomb enemies drop it on death, and it sells for 300 gil.
