The heart bomb, also known as simply the bomb, is an object that appears in the Sonic the Hedgehog series. They are small, tech-styled bombs used by Rouge the Bat that can used to blow up surrounding enemies and obstacles such as walls, ice and glass.
Sonic the Hedgehog (2006)
In Sonic the Hedgehog (2006), Rouge can use the heart bombs offensively, either in close-range to long-range combat. While up against enemies, Rouge can throw either one bomb or multiple bombs in a row by using the Bomb technique. The bombs will detonate on impact; if they do not hit an object or enemy, they will detonate seconds afterwards. Rouge can also use the Bomb Snipe, which is a first-person view of Rouge letting the player target with better accuracy.
In the console/PC version of Sonic Generations, the heart bombs reappear in the "Rouge: The Bombardier" Challenge Act. Instead of using them to destroy obstacles, Rouge throws them in Classic Sonic's path as obstacles in order to deal damage to him.
