A Bomb Fish being thrown.

Bomb Fish are explosives obtained through fishing. They act as Sticky Bombs, sticking to any blocks that they are thrown at.


  • Unlike regular Bombs, Bomb Fish do not slow down in water.


  • Similar to Sticky Bombs, Bomb Fish are useful when a safe and precise detonation is required, such as when destroying Shadow Orbs or Crimson Hearts.
  • While Bomb Fish sell for 2, Sticky Bombs only sell for 1 (50% less). Therefore, it may be preferable to sell Bomb Fish and craft and use Sticky Bombs instead.
  • Due to the nearly doubled maximum stack size (Sticky Bombs only stack up to 30), Bomb Fish can be useful for saving inventory space when using large amounts of explosives.


  • Although the rest of its characteristics are identical to the Sticky Bomb, the Bomb Fish does not generate a faint glow when thrown, due to not having a fuse.
  • The Bomb Fish is one of three fished consumables, the other two being the Honeyfin and the Frost Daggerfish.
  • As an explosive, this can be used to get the demolitionist to move in.
  • The Bomb Fish may be a reference to the Water Bombs and Bombfish from the Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess.
