Bombs are items common in most games of the franchise. Like Keys and Rockets, the Skylanders can use bombs to clear obstacles and advance the level. These include certain walls, barbed wire, Tzo Crystals and rock formations. They can also be used to defeat enemies, as they have a large blast area and deal exactly 100 damage. Bombs are subject to a timer and will detonate when it runs out. They have a stronger counterpart called the Mega Bomb, which needs to be rolled manually to its destination and can destroy things such as giant tanks and turret towers, and like most items than can be rolled automatically defeats any enemy on its way.
