|Dragon Quest Monster|
Art by Akira Toriyama
|First Appearance||Dragon Quest V|
Usually stronger than rockbombs, at least in terms of stamina, bomboulders further differentiate themselves from their equally suicidal brethren by expending their lives to support their comrades instead of doing so in an attempt to wipe out the enemy. They achieve this with their knowledge of the spell Kerplunk, making them bothersome opponents when attempting to dispose of a large group of monsters.
In the DS remake of Dragon Quest V they are further distinguished in appearance by having a full grin, instead of the gapped teeth normally seen in rockbombs.

|Description||They're not fond of fighting, and mostly just sit there smiling, but if an ally expires, they kick in with Kerplunk to bring them back.|
Sensible, soft-hearted senior citizens who keep a supply of amazing medicine handy in case of emergencies.
- In terms of the threat they pose, bomboulders are nearly identical to beelzebuzzes, monsters that preceded them by one game.
