Throw a bomb at an enemy, dealing decent damage to it and a small amount of damage to surrounding enemies. Stuns the target for one turn.

Overview

Bomb Toss is one of the 10 unique skills that can be learned from Frogidi's Fortunes.
Bomb Toss has 18 alternative colors that change the hue of the bomb shell and the smoke after the explosion.

The timing for the Action Command is at the moment the bomb is visible in the player's hand and shortly before it is thrown.

The timing for the Block is the moment when the bomb explodes, which is when it causes damage.


Succeeding the Action Command performs a 'Critical!' hit, increasing the amount POW.pngDamage dealt to the target by 1.

Usage

Bomb Toss deals a decent amount of POW.pngDamage to one enemy and inflicting the Stun.pngStun status, as well as dealing POW.png1 Damage to all other enemies.

Compared to the other SP.png1 SP cost Frogidi's Fortune skills: Fire Claw and Lightning SpearBomb Toss deals unequal amounts of POW.pngDamage across enemies and can inflict Stun.pngStun.

Bomb Toss is comparable to the Stunning Vine Trap skill, with both inflicting an action-disabling status and costing SP.png1 SP. The main difference is that Vine Trap deals all its damage to one target and that Stuck.pngStuck does not disable the ability to use items.

The Stun.pngStun and surrounding POW.pngDamage is what sets Bomb Toss apart from the rest, however, neither are very useful in combat. Just like Slap, Bomb Toss has some good usage against Wraiths to avoid their Evil Impact.

Against Corruption.pngCorruption 1 enemies, the surrounding POW.pngDamage from Bomb Toss is fully blocked by their DEF.png1 Defense, making this less ideal.

Against Corruption.pngCorruption 2+ enemies, they are immune to Stun.pngStun as well as the surrounding POW.pngDamage, nullifying to two niche parts of Bomb Toss.

Overall, Bomb Toss is only slightly better than Slap for its higher POW.pngDamage. By the time the player reaches Frogville Road, almost every enemy has at least DEF.png2 Defense as well, rendering the surrounding POW.pngDamage fully blocked.

Notes

  • The Stun.pngStun status will not be inflicted if no POW.pngDamage was dealt or if the target has the StunGuard.pngStun Guard status.
  • The Bandit King and Bedrock, as with all Corruption.pngCorruption 2+ enemies, are immune to the Stun.pngStun status.
  • The surrounding POW.pngDamage of Bomb Toss cannot go below 1 and scales with the user's POW.pngPower and can be further increased with PowerUp.pngPower Up.
  • Bomb toss does 4 more POW.pngDamage to the target than its surrounding enemies.

Trivia

  • Bomb Toss is the first skill revealed in Adventure Story, which was shown off on Vetex's twitter and YouTube.
  • A similar skill called Gift Grenade is used exclusively by Snowmen.
  • Bomb Toss can be used by Corruption.pngCorruption 2+ Snowmen and Corruption.pngCorruption 3 Daiseyes and Fungeyes.
