Remote Bombs are a recurring item in the Legend of Zelda series.

Appearances

The Legend of Zelda: The Minish Cap

Remote bombs are special bombs in The Legend of Zelda: The Minish Cap. Remotely controlled bombs invented by the Minish Belari, they can be used in the place of regular bombs; they are obtained by fusing Kinstones with Gentari after having obtained bombs, giving Belari the "inspiration" needed to finish his invention. Link can switch back to regular bombs at any time by speaking to Belari again. When Link is using Remote Bombs, they are obtained in the same fashion as regular bombs.

When deployed, these bombs will explode only when the button to which they are assigned is pressed a second time. Unlike regular bombs, it is not possible to have more than one Remote Bomb deployed at any one time. Interestingly, if Link throws a Remote Bomb at an enemy, it will do damage, even if it does not explode. Certain stronger enemies like Darknuts are stunned rather than outright defeated by a Remote Bomb's explosion.

Bombs in The Legend of Zelda: Four Swords are identical to Remote Bombs in function but are not referred to such and retain the design of standard bombs seen throughout the series.

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

Remote Bomb Icons

The Remote Bomb in Breath of the Wild is a Rune ability for the Sheikah Slate. Link can use this rune to create bombs that can be detonated remotely. These bombs can either be sphere-shaped, in which case they will roll, or cube-shaped, in which case they will remain inert once set. Link can also upgrade these by presenting Purah with three Ancient Shafts. The upgraded versions will be stronger, recharge faster, and denoted with a "+" symbol succeeding it. Both types of Remote Bomb can be out on the field at the same time, but no more than one of each may be out. Furthermore, only the type of Remote Bomb currently selected can be detonated.

Remote Bombs are light and thus effected by the wind, so they can throw further. Link can also put away any Remote Bomb he is currently holding. Unlike Bomb Arrows, Remote Bombs do not produce fire when they explode, so no wildfires on fry grass. They can be used in very hot areas like those of Eldin Canyon and Eldin Mountains regions without immediately exploding. Like usual bombs, Remote Bombs can be used to destroy certain obstacles such as Breakable Walls, Barrels, wooden and metal crates, or pots, as well as trees and Ore Deposits. Remote Bombs can be thrown or dropped in water and detonated. The shockwave kills any nearby fish which causes them to float to the surface and allows Link to collect them.

Remote Bombs can also be used to stun wild Sand Seals, allowing Link to grab them and travel through Gerudo Desert without having to bother sneaking up on them. Horses will take damage and fee from the shockwave if Link use a Remote Bomb around or near them. Bokoblins and Moblins do not run from Remote Bombs unless they explode. They will actually investigate them when thrown or dropped near them, allowing Link to use them as a distraction or damage large groups. Remote Bombs are effective against all types of Talus and will kill Pebblits with a single blast.
