Location and Uses
Bombs are devices used to create explosions. Only seconds after they are set, they will typically flash red and then explode in a puff of smoke and fire. Like most items in the series that come in quantities, Bombs can often be found in various objects, such as Pots, bushes, and Treasure Chests. They can also be purchased in Shops or found by defeating enemies. Bombs can be used in a variety of ways, such as for blowing up rocks or walls, defeating enemies, and solving Puzzles. Since A Link to the Past, Link can pick up, carry, and throw Bombs. In some games, including Ocarina of Time and Majora's Mask, Link can find out which walls can be Bombed by hitting or tapping them with his Sword. In Breath of the Wild, Link uses the Remote Bomb Rune instead of Bombs, which allows him to control when they detonate.
The Legend of Zelda
The Legend of Zelda Manual Comment
Bombs first appear in The Legend of Zelda and can be used to damage certain enemies or reveal hidden passageways in walls within Dungeons and the Overworld. These passageways often create shortcuts in Dungeons and lead to Caves in the Overworld that contain Shops or Old Men. When used, Bombs are placed directly in front of Link and explode shortly after. Bombs can only be obtained in bundles of four by purchasing them in a Shop for 20 Rupees or by defeating enemies. The only enemies that drop Bombs when defeated are blue Octoroks, blue Moblins, red Goriyas, red Darknuts, Vires, Gibdos, red Wizzrobes, and blue Lynels. However, sometimes Bombs are rewarded to Link for defeating every enemy in certain rooms within Dungeons. Bombs are needed in order to defeat Dodongos and Link is usually rewarded with Bombs for defeating every Dodongo in a room. Link is always rewarded with Bombs for defeating a Dodongo by Bombing their side and hitting them once with any Sword.
Link can hold up to 8 Bombs at the start of the game, but can purchase the ability to hold more from two Old Men in Level-5 and Level-7 of the First Quest and Level-4 and Level-8 of the Second Quest. The first upgrade raises Link's Bomb capacity to 12 and the second raises it to a maximum of 16 Bombs. Each upgrade costs 100 Rupees.
A Link to the Past
A Link to the Past Manual Comment
In A Link to the Past, Bombs can be obtained either by finding them in objects or Treasure Chests, by defeating enemies, or purchasing them in a Shop, such as the Bomb Shop in the Dark World. Here Link can buy 30 Bombs for 100 Rupees. Bombs can be used to damage certain enemies or destroy loose rocks, cracked floors, or crumbling walls within Dungeons and the Overworld. When Link uses a Bomb, it is placed in a short distance in front of him and detonates soon after. However, Link can also pick the Bomb up and throw it before it detonates. This allows Link to activate Switches from afar. Bombs are an effective item for defeating Hinoxes, who throw Bombs when Link is nearby, allowing Link to throw their Bombs back at them without using his own Bombs. Bomb Soldiers also attack Link by throwing Bombs at him. Link can destroy the Helmasaur King's mask with Five Bombs instead of the Magic Hammer. Talking Timbers will shoot a Bomb out of their mouth if Link touches their face. If Link gets hurt by a Bomb, including his own Bombs, he will take one Heart of damage. If he is wearing the Blue Mail, he will instead lose half of a Heart and if he is wearing the Red Mail, he will lose a quarter of a Heart.
Link can carry a total of 10 Bombs initially, but can increase the number of Bombs he can carry at the Pond of Happiness in Lake Hylia. Every time Link tosses a total of 100 Rupees into the Pond, the Great Fairy Venus emerges to reward him with either an Arrow or Bomb capacity upgrade. If Link chooses to upgrade his Bomb capacity, Venus will grant him the ability to carry 5 more Bombs each time until he can carry 40 Bombs. At 40 Bombs, Link can upgrade one more time, granting him a maximum capacity of 50 Bombs. All of the upgrades cost a total of 700 Rupees.
Link can temporarily use a special variety of Bomb called the Super Bomb. After completing the Ice Palace and the Misery Mire, Link can purchase the Super Bomb from the Dark World's Bomb Shop for 100 Rupees. After purchase, Link will carry the Super Bomb with him and it will detonate wherever he places it.
Link's Awakening Manual Comment
In Link's Awakening, Bombs can be found by defeating enemies, within certain objects, or by purchasing them at the Town Tool Shop in Mabe Village. Here Link can buy 10 Bombs for 10 Rupees. Bombs can be used to damage certain enemies and objects or destroy cracked walls within Dungeons and the Overworld. Link can pick up Bombs and they will not detonate until he throws them. Link cannot be hurt by his own Bombs, but he can lose 1 Heart of damage from Bombs used by enemies like Hinoxes, Bombers, Mad Bombers, and Bone Putters. In addition, there are Bomb-like enemies known as Bombites. Link needs Bombs in order to defeat Dodongo Snakes. If Link equips Bombs at the same time as the Bow, he can fire the Bombs with Arrows.
Link can initially carry 20 Bombs, but he can upgrade his carrying capacity to 60 Bombs by sprinkling Magic Powder on an underground altar to awaken the Mad Batter. The Mad Batter then asks Link if he is ready to carry more Bombs. If Link says yes, the Mad Batter will "punish" Link by giving him the Bomb upgrade and does so through a bolt of electricity.
Ocarina of Time
Ocarina of Time Manual Comment
In Ocarina of Time, Bombs can be obtained in objects, by defeating enemies, or purchasing them at the Goron Shop in Goron City. Here Link can buy 5 Bombs for 25 Rupees, 10 Bombs for 50 Rupees, or 20 Bombs for 80 Rupees. Link cannot use or collect Bombs until he has obtained the Bomb Bag, the main item of Dodongo's Cavern. Link can use Bombs to damage enemies and destroy certain structures, such as walls. When Link uses a Bomb, he will pull one out of his inventory and hold it above his head as the fuse sparks. Link can then place the Bomb down or throw it. The Bomb will detonate after about four seconds, even if Link is still holding it. Link can be hurt by his own Bombs. Several large, yellow rocks can be found across the game which can be destroyed with Bombs. They often conceal Secret Grottos which house Treasure Chests and sometimes Pieces of Heart. If Link has the Shard of Agony,[note 1] he can locate Secret Grottos that are hidden in the ground and can only be accessed by Bombing them open. Bombs are effective for defeating certain enemies, such as Beamos. Bombs are required in order to defeat the Boss of Dodongo's Cavern, King Dodongo.
Initially, the Bomb Bag can carry 20 Bombs. However, Link can upgrade it to the Big Bomb Bag, which holds 30 Bombs, and the Biggest Bomb Bag, which holds 40 Bombs. Link can obtain the upgrades by stopping the Hot Rodder Goron in Goron City as a child and by winning it in the Bombchu Bowling Alley Minigame. Link can also use other varieties of Bombs in Ocarina of Time.
The Bomb Flower is a plant that appears and functions like a Bomb. Link can detonate Bomb Flowers by either picking them up after obtaining the Goron's Bracelet, setting off another Bomb near them, shooting them with an Arrow, or touching them with a burning Deku Stick. The Bomb Flower grows back shortly after being plucked or detonated. Link can also collect Bombchus, which are explosives that move on their own. When Link places them down, they move forward in a jagged line across floors, walls, and ceilings and detonate after a certain period of time or after making contact with an object or enemy.
Majora's Mask Manual Comment
In Majora's Mask, Bombs can be obtained within objects, by defeating enemies, or purchasing them at the Bomb Shop in West Clock Town. Here Link can buy 10 Bombs for 30 Rupees.

To obtain the Biggest Bomb Bag, Link must buy it from this Business Scrub for 200 Rupees while wearing the Goron Mask.
Link can use Bombs to damage enemies and destroy certain structures, such as walls. On the Second Day, the Honey and Darling's Shop hosts a Minigame in which Link must successfully throw Bombs into baskets while on a spinning platform.
Other varieties of Bombs in Majora's Mask include Bomb Flowers, Bombchus, and Powder Kegs. Powder Kegs are a special, powerful type of Bomb that can only be used by Goron Link. They are used to break the giant rocks blocking the path to Romani Ranch and the Goron Racetrack. Link can replicate the effects of Bombs by using the Blast Mask, a Mask which can cause explosions.
Oracle of Seasons
In Oracle of Seasons, Bombs can be obtained within objects like Pots and bushes. Link can find 10 Bombs in the Gnarled Root Dungeon. Bombs can be used to damage certain enemies and destroy cracked walls within Dungeons. Bombs are needed in order to defeat the Dodongo in Snake Remains.

The Peace Ring and the Bombproof Ring, which are found at random either within a Gasha Nut or after bumping into Maple. The Peace Ring prevents Bombs from exploding when Link is carrying them, while the Bombproof Ring makes Link invulnerable to his own Bombs. Link can also obtain the Bomber's Ring through a Linked Game, which allows Link to set two Bombs at the same time. A Bomb Flower also appears in Oracle of Seasons at the Lava Lake in Subrosia. Link can give the Bomb Flower to the Subrosian Smelter to open the path to the Tower of Autumn.

The Wind Waker
In The Wind Waker, Link obtains Bombs by completing Niko's second Rope swinging challenges in Tetra's Ship at Windfall Island. Initially, Bombs are far too expensive for Link to afford, with 10 Bombs costing 10,000 Rupees at the Bomb Shop on the southern part of Windfall Island.

Link can also buy 30 Bombs for 60 Rupees from Beedle's Shop Ship. As soon Link has Bombs, he can use the Cannon on the King of Red Lions by using the Bomb item while on the boat.
