Bombette is Mario's third party member in Paper Mario. She is a pink Bob-omb with a ponytail shaped fuse that inhabited Koopa Bros. Fortress in the events of Paper Mario. She is also very headstrong, and threatens to explode next to Mario in the Crystal Palace if he hit her instead of the Duplighosts pretending to be her. The role of a party member with the ability to explode has been retained in future installments of the series (with the exception of Paper Mario: Sticker Star, although the Bomb Sticker allows Mario to use a bomb attack in battle). The role is taken by Admiral Bobbery in Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door, and by Boomer in Super Paper Mario.
