- "I will wipe that grin off their stupid faces or my name isn't... ...DA BOMB!"
- — Bomb, Angry Birds Comics (2016) #2
Bomb is a bird who is covered almost entirely in black feathers, though his belly and eyelids are dark gray-colored. He has floating eyebrows that are red in color. Perhaps Bomb's most distinguishable feature is his short, fuse-like feather with a yellow tip on his head. The earliest Angry Birds-related material also had Bomb with a white dot on his head.
For the Wreck the Halls short in 2011, Bomb was slightly redesigned. He is now larger in shape, and his belly patch and eyebrows are smaller. In addition, his fuse is thinner and more pointy, and his beak looks different. This design was not used again until Angry Birds Toons in 2013, and has been the most common design since then.
In The Angry Birds Movie, Bomb was given an anthropomorphic appearance. He is now much larger, twice as tall as Red. His torso is round-shaped and connected to the head without a neck. His eyes are also much smaller and have cyan-colored pupils instead of black ones. In addition, he was given two small wings and two short feet. Future releases would occasionally switch between this new design and the one from the Wreck the Halls animation.
In Angry Birds Dream Blast, Bomb was redesigned again to look more a hatchling. This design is similar to the one from The Angry Birds Movie, though he is now much shorter and has larger eyes and a smaller beak.
Despite his fearsome appearance, Bomb is a very gentle and kind, though somewhat stupid person. He is very sincere and genuine in his actions and is willing to put himself in conflict or danger to help out his allies. Bomb loves and devotes himself to the other members of the flock, who take care of his unpredictable behavior. He is also a very avid fighter and loves being a destructive part of battles.
- "You are supposed to go boom! It's the one thing asked of you! But if a giggling moron is what you are now... I suppose we'll do all the work!"
"What?! I may be a moron... BUT I DO MY PART!"
- — Chuck and Bomb, Angry Birds Comics (2016) #2
Despite his gentle soul, Bomb is short-tempered, feeling hurt whenever he or his friends are insulted, underestimated, or judged. This leads him to explode to unleash his anger. He can also be stupid and innocent; during a speed-date, he told some women that he ate dirt during an awkward moment. In addition, him loving eating ice cream and gambling, amongst others, has led him to be distracted, manipulated, or fooled to lose the eggs, which ends in him crying and exploding.
Powers and abilities
- "Sometimes... when I get upset... I have been known to... uhh... blow up."
"What? Like, when you get mad, you mean?"
"No. I literally blow up. I explode... like a bomb. Hence the name."
- — Bomb and Red, The Angry Birds Movie
Bomb is most notable for his ability of exploding like a real bomb, hence his name. This is done thanks to the chemical compounds that are produced in his body by the food he eats. These explosions can sometimes be destructive enough to destroy Pig City and create gigantic mushroom clouds that can be seen from afar. Despite his destructive explosions, Bomb always comes out of these with few to none scratches or wounds. While the cause of this remains unknown, Professor Pig has hypothesized that his body is "pompous" and conveys shockwaves thoroughly, so that the energy he releases in the form of explosions do not affect him at all, but rather the objects in his blast radius. However, he also said that magic could be a possibility.
Aside from being able to explode, Bomb is quite strong, being capable of smashing through stone. He is also very resistant, having survived atmospheric entry. He can also drive a large variety of vehicles, from Mechanic Pig's karts to his own ship, the Bird Ship.
- Main article: Shockwave
Through the combination of electricity and a chemical, Bomb can transform into Shockwave. In this state, he can produce electrical shock waves that can electrocute pigs and push structures with force. This transformation first appeared in the original Angry Birds.
Matilda is one of Bomb's closest friends. The two first met when the loon was forced by law to attend the chicken's anger management classes. However, Bomb has admitted that he completely forgot about her classes. Currently, Bomb has a mutual respect for Matilda. In addition, it was shown a few times that the he is in love of her; for example, in the map of the Piggy Tower from the newest versions of Angry Birds Friends, Bomb is seen looking at Matilda with a happy expression and with hearts popping out of his head.
- Bomb is the first bird not to have a corpse sprite, although, it is unused in Angry Birds Chrome's files and other Angry Birds webgames and used in Angry Birds Star Wars, being used as Obi Wan Kaboomi's corpse sprite, since he cannot explode.
- In Angry Birds Classic's files, Bomb's sprites has on their filenames "BIRD_GRAY", possibly showing that Bomb was originally gray-colored, or he was the gray bird in the 2009 Splash screen.
- Originally, Bomb had a white spot on his head. The spot has been removed on most artwork. Early versions of the plush toy included it but it was removed later.
- Bomb is the only bird that does not display a tail. This has since changed in some instances, such as the movie.
- Bomb is accidentally called "Bob" in the Angry Birds Space comic, a typo made by Rovio.
- Before it was confirmed that it was a typo, some fans were convinced that it was his official name, as most of the birds' names weren't as widely used or confirmed.
- In the Google+ "Teamwork" level selection menu, pictures of Angry Birds Trilogy, and in some (but not many) instances, two gray dots are added below Bomb's left eye.
