Slip Bomb

The Slip Bomb is a variant of the Bomb down move used by Samus in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and Wii U. It is unlockable at random. The Slip Bomb deals less damage than the regular Bomb move, but can trip enemies that have been grounded and meteor smash airborne opponents. This means it is a suitable move to set up a grab or guard an edge. A grounded explosion deals 2.5% damage, and 3.5% in the air.

"Drop a bomb that can knock foes over but does less damage."

Prima Official Game GuideEdit

Damage 2.5~3.5%
Though this bomb deals less damage, it gives a meteor effect against airborne opponents and trips grounded opponents.Additionally, [sic] the bomb’s fall speed is faster, the explosion is larger, and the fuse is shorter.

Arachnus after being tripped by a Bomb in Samus Return

  • In Metroid: Samus Returns, Bombs cause Arachnus to slip and fall down if they explode while it is in its ball form. It is unclear if this is a reference/homage to the Slip Bomb or not.
