The Eggman Bomboms are handheld, high-tech explosive packs with a digital display and the Eggman Empire decal. The devices also come equipped with a countdown. Despite their size, the Eggman Bomboms are extremely potent: a few of them in one place can create explosions the size of aircraft carriers and mountain tops, and as well cause huge shock waves and tidal waves in the aftermath.
The Eggman Bomboms were used during Dr. Eggman, Rouge the Bat, and Shadow the Hedgehog’s attack on Prison Island. They were given to Shadow by Eggman to be placed all across the island. Setting them to fifteen minutes before detonation, Shadow did just that. While the bombs went off as planned and demolished the island, Shadow and Rouge cut their escape close when Rouge got trapped on the island and Shadow had to save her with Chaos Control.
