|First Appearance||Super Mario 64 (1996)|
Bob-omb Buddies (sing. Bob-omb Buddy) are pink Bob-ombs that appear in the Super Mario series. They are non-violent, often working to assist Mario in ways that differ between games. They first appeared in Super Mario 64, where some Bob-omb Buddies would prepare the cannons.
Bob-omb Buddies make a decent role in New Super Mario Bros.:Fusion. If an item called a Golden Bob-omb Statue is found then they will happily open a cannon to one of the game's "Secret Worlds". There are 4 of them in the whole game.
