Bombs are items put in Fruit Ninja and Fruit Ninja Frenzy to fool the player. These appear in all modes except Zen Mode, in three types: Red, Purple and Lucky Blast.

Red Bombs


These are the bombs in Classic Mode. If you slice one, the game ends, even if you still have more than one life left. One always appears immediately after six Fruit appear on screen.

Purple Bombs

-10 Bomb

These bombs appear in Arcade Mode and Fruit Ninja Frenzy, and are not quite as bad as red bombs. They deduct ten points, destroy all fruits on the screen including Bonus Bananas without giving points, and lose Blitz and Bonus Banana.

Pixel Bomb

Pixel bomb

Pixel Bombs look like red bombs, but with a blue X and heavily pixelized. These bombs will occasionally appear when one has the Pixel Love blade equipped. They do not explode, cannot be deflected, and a combo cannot be formed with one. All they do is give a "retro/8 bit sound" when swiped.

Lucky Blast Bombs

Lucky bomb

These bombs appear in Fruit Ninja Frenzy and are thrown when the Lucky Blast smoothie is activated, which is activated on the first three bombs to appear. These bombs have a four leaf clover in the centre and a yellow aura on the outside. Attempting to cut this bomb gives a random bonus. These bombs have no negative effects.

In Fruit Ninja and Fruit Ninja Kinect, you can buy Bomb Deflects from Gutsu's Cart using Starfruit Currency. When you hit bombs, they will fly off the screen and you won't incur any penalties. When the flame blade is equipped, the bombs will attract to your finger.

In Fruit Ninja Frenzy, Smoothies can help with bombs. The Spirit Bombs Smoothie stops you from getting any bombs, and the Lucky Blast Smoothie makes the first bomb in game into a Lucky Blast Bomb.
