Self-Detonation[1] is the Quirk of the Bombers.


All Bombers have the ability to self-destruct through a large explosion that is generated in their prominent bellies. Their bellies swell and begin to glow for the explosive energy they accumulate before detonating.[2] The power of the blast varies depending on the Bombers, with the largest specimens generating more powerful explosions. However, even the self-destruction of the smaller ones is powerful enough to cause serious damage.

Due to their automaton mentality, the Bombers do not self-detonate by their own will, but only when they receive an order to do so. Apparently, self-detonation is a Quirk that is activated through a devices used by a third party.[2]

Through bioengineering, the Villain Factory can ensure that some specimens can combine this Quirk with others to carry out special attacks without causing the immediate destruction of the Next-Level Villain. This is the case of the Specialized Bomber, who was modified so that it could combine its self-detonation with a six-armed Quirk and regeneration, allowing him to perform explosive punches and regenerate any lost limb to throw more explosive punches.[3] It can even concentrate more detonating power in its fists to perform more powerful attacks.[4]
