Dark Bombs are an unused concept weapon from Metroid Prime 2: Echoes. Inventory descriptions for the weapon still exist in the game's textual data.[1][2]

A Dark Bomb was planned to be a powerful combined weapon created by laying a Power Bomb while the Dark Beam was equipped, releasing a field of dark matter tendrils. The tendrils could entangle and hinder enemies, likely functioning in a manner similar to that of the Entangler.

Light Bombs and Annihilator Bombs were also planned, but eventually scrapped. These Power Bomb combinations were all ineffective against Denzium, making them useful only in combat situations.
