The Motion-Sensor Bomb (センサー爆弾 Sensā Bakudan?, lit: Sensor Bomb), Proximity Mine in PAL versions of Super Smash Bros. Melee, is an item seen throughout the entire Super Smash Bros. series that will attach itself to the nearest solid part of the stage when thrown, be it ground, wall, or ceiling. It will then stick there until something hits it, be it an attack, a character or an item. It will explode on anyone regardless who throws it on the surface. If touched, it will explode and deal out a great deal of damage and knockback. May also explode if attacked as an item, but as it is small it is hard to hit (and see).

When lying on the ground after spawning, it will be gray, but once activated, it'll glow green and beep quietly to warn the players. One can attach the Motion-sensor Bomb to the side of a stage by rolling into the edge of the stage and jumping and throwing it down. In the NTSC and PAL Melee beta, it was going to be a mine from Perfect Dark, but was changed to the one in Goldeneye 007.

Trophy Info (SSBB)

Motion-Sensor Bomb Trophy

An item that, when placed, will detonate when someone gets too close. It can be stuck on ceilings, walls, and floors. It doesn't matter who places this thing--it'll explode regardless of who passes by. Its explosive power is high, and it launches players with ease. It's small and lies almost flat on surfaces, so it can be very difficult to see.

Trophy Info (SSB3DS/WU)

A tiny bomb that explodes in a big blast when it detects movement. Stick it to the walls, floor, or ceiling, and wait for it to arm. Long-range weapons can destroy it, but only if your opponents remember it's there. Don't forget yourself, though, or it'll be you caught in the explosion!



  • In SSB if a Motion-Sensor Bomb is thrown against Fox's reflector, the bomb's ownership is transferred to Fox. That is, if the bomb later detonates and KO's somebody, the credit for that KO will go to Fox rather than the player who threw it.
  • The Melee trophy said its area of origin was secret, but the Brawl trophy verifies it originates in the Super Smash Bros. universe. This is because in Melee the item was from Perfect Dark/Goldeneye 007, while in Brawl it is a new design made specifically for the Super Smash Bros. series. In Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS/Wii U, the Motion-Sensor Bomb has a new design.
