Bob Ombs are a species, that appears in Super Mario 64
and Super Mario 64 DS.

Apperance Edit

They are spheres with large, white eyes, yellow feet, and a small rope on the top. In the remake, they look
very similar to their appearance from the Nintendo 64 game, but they now sport a twister on their backs.

Locations and Uses Edit

The Bob Ombs can be found in many painting worlds and may be friend or foe, depending on their color. Pink Bob Ombs, the so called Bob Omb Buddies are a friendly, stationary kind of Bob Omb, that can be talked to to activate the cannons for Mario and his friends to easily traverse the current location via flying with the Wing Cap.

Black Bob Ombs are enemies, whose behaviour depends on their size. Smaller specimen, the regular Bob Ombs, will follow Mario around and explode shortly afterwards, while their larger specimen, the King Bob Omb, attempts to throw Mario off the mountain summit in Bob Omb Battlefield.
