The Bomber Armor, also known as Bomb Knight, is an enemy in the Castlevania series. It is an armored soldier that throws timed bombs.


Castlevania: Symphony of the Night

Bomb Knights were first introduced in Symphony of the Night. They are one of the first enemies encountered in the Reverse Clock Tower, and are usually found standing among falling-spiked contraptions, making them somewhat difficult to defeat.

In this instance, the Rock Knight is a palette swap of the Bomb Knight, a role that would change the other way around in the rest of the games.

Castlevania: Harmony of Dissonance

Bomber Armors can be considerably dangerous in Harmony of Dissonance, as they are usually found in areas where other enemies abound. The major concern is due to the lack of recovery time in this game, which can put the player in a precarious position by potentially preventing them to escape from a dangerous situation. The tossed bomb itself hurts the player on contact, but the explosion will deal a very high amount of damage.

Spell Fusions that provide ranged combat are advisable to deal with them.

Castlevania: Aria of Sorrow

Bomber Armors attack pretty much the same as in other games. Even though they are resilient to damage, they take more time in tossing their bombs this time around. They are usually found in rooms infested by Medusa Heads, so the player should be careful in avoiding getting petrified by a golden one, lest they are left at the armor's mercy.

Its soul, Heavy Bomb, allows Soma to throws bombs too.

Castlevania: Dawn of Sorrow

In Dawn of Sorrow, Bomber Armors are a modified sprite of the Axe Armor rather than from the Rock Armor, as in the rest of the games. Though looking hazardous and powerful, they are not so hard to beat. They throw bombs at a short range, and take damage if they explode near them. In addition, they are usually found on platforms that allow attacking them from below.

Similar as in Aria of Sorrow, its soul, Heavy Bomb, allows Soma to throws bombs too.
