Super Mario 64 Official Wikia

King Bob-omb is the first boss in Super Mario 64 and Super Mario 64 DS.


King Bob-omb lives at the top of a mountain in Bob-omb Battlefield. He apparently is controlling the Bob-ombs side in the war against Bob-omb Buddies.

How He Attacks?

When Mario meets King Bob-omb, he will make a short speech, saying mostly the rules for the battle. Then, his only attack his to try and grab Mario, and then throw him. If Mario throws him off the cliff, he says that "it's against the royal rules to throw the king out of the ring". In the remake, he will also throw Bob-ombs at Yoshi, Mario, Luigi, or Wario.

How to Defeat?

In the first mission, Big Bob-omb on the Summit, Mario must grab King Bob-omb from behind and throw him (make sure that King Bob-omb doesnt go off the mountain) three times. In the remake, in the first mission, King Bob-omb will throw Bob-ombs at the player. If played as Yoshi, the player must spit Bob-ombs back at him three times. If played as anyone else, the player must throw Bob-ombs back at him three times. In the remake, an additional mission is added, titled Big Bob-omb's Revenge and is played the same way as Big Bob-omb on the Summit in the original game. Yoshi can't do this mission without Caps since he lacks the ability to grab enemies and objects.
