Bombites are enemies in Link's Awakening. They are sentient Bomb-like enemies that explode as their sole method of attack. They may be partially based on the Bob-omb enemies of the Mario series, considering the recurring Mario series enemies in Link's Awakening.
Bombites are exclusively found in the Key Cavern. They come in two variations, as indicated by their coloration in Link's Awakening DX. Red Bombites are the most common of the two. These Bombites can be found in small groups, typically in enclosed or tight spaces. They move slowly, but when they are struck with the Sword, they ignite their fuse and run about in a frenzy while bouncing off walls before eventually exploding. When they are about to explode, they will begin to flash. They can be difficult to avoid, especially in narrow areas, and thus can be dangerous enemies. The Shield can be used to block them from running into Link, however, it will not protect him from their eventual explosion.
