Count Bomb Neo is a platform or enemy appearing in Mega Man 7 as a slightly more elaborately designed, but otherwise identical, version of the original Count Bomb. Like its predecessor, it is a black, orb-like bomb with a number on it and a detonator on its top or side, which activates it.
In the Games
Mega Man 7
In Mega Man 7, Count Bomb Neos appear in Burst Man's stage, acting identically to the original Count Bomb apart from dealing less damage. They appear in various configurations, usually serving as stationary platforms or obstacles that Mega Man is blocked by and which deflect his shots. Mega Man can safely jump on them, though in doing so, he might push down the detonator switch, activating a countdown that is displayed in large numbers on the bomb itself. Once the countdown has reached 0, the bomb explodes, which can harm Mega Man if he is too close and effectively removes the platform or obstacle (until it is scrolled off the screen).
Rather than having their detonator on top, some Count Bomb Neos instead have theirs located on the side, letting Mega Man set off the countdown by pressing against them instead. Various Count Bomb Neos, especially those with sideways switches, are placed in such a way that Mega Man must detonate them to proceed, sometimes requiring proper timing to not be harmed by the explosion or fall down in the process.
Other versions of Count Bombs exist, though they are often functionally identical.
