A Buckbomb as it appears in Donkey Kong Country Returns
|First Appearance||Donkey Kong Country Returns|
|Home||Donkey Kong Island|
|Enemies|| Donkey Kong|
Buckbombs are simply alternate versions of the Buckbot enemy. As the last portion of their name suggests, they are not simply robotic poultry, but explosive robotic poultry! Unlike the Buckbots, who are instantly destroyed after they've been jumped on, Buckbombs will stay in tact after you've jumped on their head. From here, they'll start to grow red and beep just before self-destructing, meaning you'll have to stay clear during this process if your wish to protect what Heart Health you have. Due to this process, Buckbombs can be picked off of the ground for the short period of time prior to their explosion and chucked at other enemies or obstacles in the area. If one wishes to skip this process, however, Buckbombs can be instantly destroyed by a simple Kong Roll.
The Buckbomb looks entirely identical to the Buckbot, with their only physical difference being that their metallic skin is a solid orange colour rather than solid white.
