Remote Bombs

Bombs are a recurring item in The Legend of Zelda series. They allow Link to blow up walls and handily dispose of powerful enemies. They commonly require a Bomb Bag to be used but can be found in many various places. Two common variations are ofter shown as well: Bomb Flowers, which are plants that grow Bombs that can be used in place of those from a Bomb Bag, and Bombchus, Bombs that will move on their own.



In the canon Legend of Zelda series, Bombs have appeared as usable items in every single game except for The Adventures of Link.

The Legend of Zelda: Ghost Tracker

Bombs appeared in the third direct sequel to Wind Waker known as The Legend of Zelda: Ghost Tracker. They, like the previous games, can be produced with their action button before being thrown and carried until they explode per timer. They also had the ability when used in the boat to turn into a cannon, shooting bombs top destroy enemies and obstacles. The Standard Bomb Bag was obtained by Link in the cavern on Sailor's Cafe Island. Because of their cannon properties, they were required in order to reach Showflower Island, which was being attacked by an otherwise undefeatable Big Octo. 

Contrary to popular belief, the Bombs are actually required in order to beat the game; although the Big Octo can be avoided by speed sailing past it, the cavern on Sandfall Island features one of the two keys needed to enter the Jungle Temple, and in turn the cavern is opened with Bombs, so therefor the Bombs are actually required to beat the game.
