The Rocket Octobomber is an Octarian enemy similar to standard Octobombers that appears in Octo Canyon, the Octo Expansion, and Return of the Mammalians. This enemy flies and shoots bombs in the same manner as standard Octobombers, but the Rocket Octobomber has two thrusters on each side of its helmet, allowing it to quickly dodge left or right, somewhat similarly to a dodge roll performed with dualies. Its appearance is slightly darker as well, similarly to the appearances of other Rocket Octarians in relation to their standard versions. Usually, when a Rocket Octobomber spawns, there is backup somewhere around the area, such as two or more Rocket Octocopters or ground support like Octopods.

Trivia

  • Rocket Octobombers were unnamed until the Octo Expansion, in which Marina mentions their name in Breakdance Station.
  • While other Rocket Octarians drop more Power Eggs in relation to their standard counterparts, Rocket Octobomber does not - both it and the regular Octobomber drop 5 Power Eggs upon defeat.
