The Bomb Throwing Combatant (ボム投げ戦闘員 Bomu Nage Sentouin?) is an enemy that appears in Tails Adventure. They are small anthropomorphic avian foot soldiers of the Battle Kukku Empire who handles bombs.
Bomb Throwing Combatants are humanoid birds about the same size as Tails, who have large and sharp orange beaks and feet, and a white plumage. As attire, they wear black helmets with red vision lines which cover their entire heads and sleeveless light blue torso armor.
Powers and abilities
Bomb Throwing Combatants, as their name imply, utilize explosive black bombs which they throw at opponents in combat.
In Tails Adventure, Bomb Throwing Combatants are only found in Polly Mountain 1. They usually wait for the player to arrive before making a move. They start by running up to Tails to throw a bomb at him, for then to move away to throw another as the player approaches them.
The player can easily defeat Bomb Throwing Combatants with any kind of bomb. Defeating one can sometimes cause a Ring to be dropped for the player to collect.
In other media
In the Sonic the Hedgehog comic and its spin-offs published by Archie Comics, Bomb Throwing Combatants appear as one of the two infantries (along with Rock Throwing Combatants) of the Battle Bird Armada, lead by Grand Battle Kukku XV. Their basic design and color scheme are close to their game counterparts, though they also use combat weapons, walkers and hover pods instead of just bombs.
