A rockbomb (Bomb Boulder in Japan) is an enemy in the Dragon Quest series.

Characteristics

A giant boulder with a malevolent grin on its face, always leaning to its right. Most times, it will just attack by charging at its foes; but under enough stress, it may explode, the shrapnel damaging its target equal to its own HP, which can be high.

Dragon Quest VII

A single rockbomb has a storyline role when the mayor of Nottagen befriends it, the rockbomb remaining after Sulkk is dispatched. He names it Rocky. At first, it sleeps and dreams of exploding. With Sulkk defeated, the resulting light awakens a malign vine that sends its writhing roots all over town, destroying it. When the hero and his party warp back from the present, they arrive in time to prune the roots, but the vine sends even more roots up through the mayor's home. The rockbomb hops between the roots and gives its life to destroy them, which clears the way for the party to locate and weed out the vine.

While still occasionally mentioned as being monsters, rockbombs are treated as items throughout the game, often found sleeping on patches of dirt. Getting knocked into the air will angrily stir a rockbomb from its rest, and it will detonate the moment it hits the ground. They can be used as ammo in tank battles, but are mainly used to damage enemies and clear obstructions.

Builders

If you can deplete the life gauge of the Rockbomb and get far enough away before its timed Kamikazee attack expires and it explodes, destroying all in its path, the enemy just might drop a rockbomb shard. These things are risky to get, but they're worth it.
