Bowser Bomb is the Down Special Move move of Bowser. If Bowser is in midair when using this move, he slams to the ground with a butt-stomp. If he's on the ground doing this, he will leap forward diagonally before performing the butt-stomp. Unlike Yoshi, who can perform the Yoshi Bomb, which will produce disruptive stars upon landing, Bowser will not make any kind of shockwave upon impact. In Super Smash Bros. Brawl, Bowser gains some super armor and can lightly damage enemies with his claw at the start-up of the move. Note that in Super Smash Bros. Brawl, this move can be used to combo enemies.
The Bowser Bomb is also good for edgeguarding. If Bowser does it in the air and just brushes the edge, he will grab on making good for edgeguarding. This technique is good to use on people trying to recover. Also by doing this, instead of suffering lag from landing on the ground you can just grab the edge. Bowser can also use it on someone who is hanging on the edge and he will knock them off it and he will grab on instead. It is unsure whether you have to hold the direction on the analog stick according to what side the edge is on or if you can just Bowser Bomb and he will automatically grab on.
Edge-canceled Bowser BombEdit
An Edge-canceled Bowser Bomb happens when Bowser uses his Down B onto an edge (while facing the appropriate direction). The animation and momentum of the Bowser Bomb is canceled out by the action of Bowser grabbing on to the ledge.
