Bomb Flowers are recurring items in The Legend of Zelda series. They are Bombs that grow in the ground that Link can pick up and use against enemies or to destroy certain walls, objects, or rocks.

In some games, they are activated once they're picked up, so Link has a limited amount of time before they will explode in his hand. In Skyward Sword Link has the option of picking up Bomb Flowers and storing them for later use, and in Tears of the Kingdom, they go directly to Link's inventory when acquired.

Ocarina of Time

In Ocarina of Time, Link can pick up Bomb Flowers to use before he gets the Bomb Bag. As a child, Link must obtain the Goron's Bracelet from Darunia before being able to pick them up. Bomb Flowers can be found in Goron City, Death Mountain and Dodongo's Cavern. In this cavern, there is a very clever puzzle involving bomb flowers.

Oracle of Seasons

In Oracle of Seasons, the Bomb Flower is acquired in Subrosia and is needed to clear the way for the Tower of Autumn. By using the Bomb Flower, it not only gives Link entry to the Autumn Tower (which will give his Rod of Seasons the Power of Autumn) but it also allows him to use the furnaces in order to make Hard Ore using Red Ore and Blue Ore.

Oracle of Ages

In Oracle of Ages, retrieving a Bomb Flower is vital in order for Link to rescue the Goron Elder and continue through the game. It is obtained from the Gorons after defeating the Great Moblin in Rolling Ridge.

The Wind Waker

Bomb Flowers in The Wind Waker are found in many places around the Great Sea. Link can pick one up, and throw or drop it before it grows back. They will respawn after a little bit.

Skyward Sword

Bomb Flowers appear once again in Skyward Sword, but this time around, Link has the ability to pick one up, and store it in his Bomb Bag for later use.

A Link Between Worlds

Main article: Big Bomb Flower

A single Big Bomb Flower appears in Lorule, acting as a replacement for the Super Bomb from A Link to the Past.

Tears of the Kingdom

"A dangerous flower that contains explosive elements. Does not mix well with fire or electricity, unless the goal is to blow things up."

— In-Game Description

In Tears of the Kingdom, Bomb Flowers return and replace the Remote Bomb rune from Breath of the Wild. They are mostly found underground, in caves, wells and the Depths

When collected, they are available in the Materials section of Link's inventory. Unlike previous Bomb Flowers, whose fuse often lights as soon as the flower is picked, the Bomb Flowers must be ignited by an external source or from sudden impact.
