Bomb Machine[1] is a large enemy in the Kirby series, debuting in Kirby's Return to Dream Land.

Physical Appearance

Bomb Machine is a large mechanical bomb. It has a wick at its top, two flashing star patterns on its side, and a mouth-like hatch with metal teeth on its front. Two headlights are attached above the hatch. The bomb is built atop a scissor lift with four wheels to move around on.


Kirby's Return to Dream Land

Bomb Machines appear in only one stage in the game: Stage 1 of Egg Engines. They drive slowly forward and backward along the ground -- they cannot turn around to face a different direction. The robots can use their scissor lifts to increase in height. Bomb Machines will occasionally shoot missiles from their mouth hatches. These missiles yield the Bomb ability when inhaled.

Bomb Machines are immune to all Copy Abilities except one: the Monster Flame Super Ability. Monster Flame Kirby can light a robot's fuse, which will cause it to flash and destruct. One giant Bomb Machine at the end of the stage hides a portal to Another Dimension, and Kirby must destroy the enemy to reach it.


Bomb Machine's name comes from its appearance: It is a robotic machine that possesses the appearance and explosive properties of a bomb.


  • Bomb Machine's missiles later appear as projectiles thrown by Magolor Soul.
