Bombast is a character who debuts in Paper Mario: The Shards of Time. He is the fifth Party Member to be recruited.
Bombast looks similar to normal Bob-Ombs, except he has a dark blueish hue, and wears a red headband.
His Field Ability makes him walk a short distance and then blow up any cracked rocks or cracked walls next to him to reveal hidden paths (and, more rarely, hidden items). You can press the Field Ability button again to make him explode prematurely. Mario also puts him over his head before setting him down, allowing him to set Bombast on ledges.

Bombast has a big heart to go with his short fuse. He tends to lose his temper easily.
He defected from Bowser because he did not like being evil.
- The name of his Omega Rank attack is an obvious reference to TF2's Demoman.
