Light 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 Light Bomb was planned to be a powerful combined weapon created by laying a Power Bomb while the Light Beam was equipped, releasing a mine infused with Light energy. It had a delayed detonation behavior, wherein it would only explode if an enemy entered its radius or another Light Bomb goes off. Like the Light Beam, Light Bombs were white hot and could set enemies on fire. They could also blind and stun dark creatures.

Dark 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.
