As promised here is another video game monster! Once again it’s a creature from the Super Mario Franchise. Meet the Bob-omb.
The Bob-omb is a recurring enemy in the Super Mario games. His first appearance was in Super Mario Brothers from 1988, which makes the bob-omb only a few years younger than the Goomba which I have already described on my blog. The Bob-omb has appeared in almost every Mario game since its debut in 1988 including Super Mario 64, Super Mario Galaxy and many others!
The Bob-omb itself looks like a little bomb. It’s a mechanical creature which gladly sacrifices itself in true kamikaze style if there is a chance the player (Mario) will get hurt. Bob-ombs can deviate a little in appearance. Most bob-ombs are black or blue in color, but pink variations also exist. These are called Bob-omb Buddies and aren’t enemies at all but allies. Some Bob-ombs are also known to have wind-up keys on their backs!
Alright guys, that’s it for today. Let me hear if you have any suggestions for video game monsters for next Wednesday! Also, you can look forward to an awesome cryptid tomorrow on the Monster Madnezz blog!
