Bombarossa are recurring Enemies in The Legend of Zelda series.[1][name references needed]


Four Swords

Bombarossa usually appear in the Sea of Trees, Death Mountain and Vaati's Palace. They float around in the air and ignite when hit by a sword or when hit by one of the Links. They usually appear in groups and must be avoided in order to solve certain puzzles.

The Minish Cap

Bombarossa float around in some Dungeons, and explode on contact. Some patrol a small area, and must be avoided, while others remain stationary. Stationary Bombarossa sometimes form puzzles which must be solved by exploding them in a particular way to result in a chain explosion to activate Switches. If a Bombarossa is in Link's path, it can be jumped over using the Roc's Cape.


  • Bombarossa comes from bomba rossa, Italian for "red bomb". This name is only used in the English localization; in fact, the Italian localization uses the Japanese original "Bombui".
