There are four rockets; two are blue and two are red, each with a glass dome hatch on top. Before launch, each has a hatch that allows Fuel to be thrown in. Once launched in a 2-on-2 team battle, however, the four team rockets will join together mid-launch into two larger rockets.
Rockets serve as the focus point of the Rocket Rumble game mode. During the game, players will attempt to throw Fuel into their individual rockets to power the rocket's takeoff. If you damage another player's rocket, Fuel will be knocked out, provided they have at least one. Time Bombs (as well as Super Time Bombs) knock out large amounts of fuel if they detonate next to a rocket.
During the last ten seconds of each match, the rockets' top hatches will open, and players will have to enter before time runs out to launch. At the end of that time, rockets with players inside will launch, while those that are empty will not. Once a rocket runs out of fuel in its flight, it will go away, leaving its riders to fall on a cloud where it stopped.
