Big Bombs,(FSA | TFH)[1][2] also known as Giant Bombs,(FSA)[3] are recurring traps and Items in The Legend of Zelda series.

Location and Uses

Four Swords Adventures

Giant Bombs are a dangerous type of Bomb in Four Swords Adventures. Giant Bombs are dropped by Shadow Link and found as traps within Treasure Chests. Giant Bombs explode after 10 seconds and blast the entire area.[1] The timer can explode faster if a Giant Bomb is slashed with the Four Sword, with each slash reducing the timer by one second. If the Links are hit by its blast, they will be defeated instantly and must escape to another screen to survive.[4] The Links can also avoid its blast by escaping into a hole,[5] walking into a Cave or diving underwater.[6]

Tri Force Heroes

When one of the Links wears the Big Bomb Outfit, all Bombs and Bomb Flowers that Link uses turn into Big Bombs, which have an increased blast radius and inflict double damage. Bombs have a blast radius that reaches one level above or below, while Big Bombs reach two levels above or below.

During the Boss battle in Bomb Storage, Lil' Hinox throws an even larger Big Bomb at the Links. This Bomb bears a Hinox marking and has triple the blast radius and damage output of a regular Bomb. It is too heavy for any of the Links to lift and will only move a short distance when blown with the Gust Jar, but with precise timing it can be fired back at Lil' Hinox to damage him.
