X Bombs are items introduced in Kid Icarus: Uprising. They are thrown weapons deployed in a manner similar to that of grenades. Upon impact, the bomb instantaneously explodes into an X-shaped blast, which is especially devastating in close quarters. While the explosion does not last as long as those of some other explosives (such as the Rock Bomb and Smart Bomb), it is extremely fast and difficult to predict before the blast occurs. It is a relatively uncommon item.
X Bombs explode shortly after being thrown, ripping through multiple enemies for massive damage with their cross-shaped blast. The orientation of the explosion depends on the direction faced when the bomb is thrown.
The X Bomb appears in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS/Wii U as a useable item in battles. Once thrown, after a few seconds, it explodes in mid-air, creating an x-shaped explosion, of which the orientation will differ depending on the position that the bomb lands in.
