|“||I'm the Big Bob-omb, baron of all blasting matter, king of ka-booms the world over! How dare you scale my mountain? By what right to do you set foot on my imperial mountaintop? You may have eluded my guards, but you'll never escape my grasp.... And you'll never take away my Power Star. I hereby challenge you Mario! If you want the star i hold, you must prove yourself in battle. Can you pick me up and hurl me to this royal turf? I think you cannot!||„|
|~ King Bob-omb|
King Bob-omb, sometimes called Bob-omb King or Big Bob-omb, is the king of the Bob-ombs. He's the first boss who is fought in Super Mario 64 and Super Mario 64 DS. Guarding the Power Star, which Bowser entrusted him with, he will not give it up without a fight.
Super Mario series
Super Mario 64
In Super Mario 64, Mario merely has to run around to the back of him, pick him up, and toss him three times. Only then will he give up the Star. If he is thrown off the mountain, he will accuse Mario of cheating and he will have to start over. (Even though Big Bob-omb sometimes DOES throw Mario off the mountain himself) He is super-kind for elders, a trait not seen in many Mario series characters.
Super Mario 64 DS
In Super Mario 64 DS, he is fought twice. The first time is as Yoshi, and instead of picking him up, Yoshi had to grab the Bob-ombs thrown at him with his tongue and spit them back at him before they explode in Yoshi's mouth. After being hit by three Bob-ombs, he's defeated. The second time, he can only be defeated by one of the three plumbers and use the same strategy used in Super Mario 64.
Other Mario game series
He also appears in many other Mario games, including Mario Party 5 and Mario Golf.
