|First appearance||Super Smash Bros. (1999)|
The Motion-Sensor Bomb, or Motion Mine, is an item used in the Super Smash Bros. series. A few variations of the item have appeared throughout the series, but they all function similarly. Once used, the Motion-Sensor Bomb is set on the ground or another surface until someone gets close enough to it, causing it to explode.
In the Japanese version of Super Smash Bros. Melee, the Motion-Sensor Bomb is actually a Proximity Mine from Perfect Dark. However, in the North American and PAL versions, it is still the Proximity Mine from GoldenEye 007 (although in the actual trophy description, its game of origin is sneakily listed as "Top Secret").
In Super Smash Bros. Brawl, the Motion Sensor Bomb has a more unique design, since Nintendo could no longer use the GoldenEye 007 design due to Rare being bought out by Microsoft. In Super Smash Bros. Brawl, unlike in the previous games, the Motion-Sensor Bomb can disappear in a set amount of time, hindering its effectiveness.
The Motion-Sensor Bomb reappears in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS / Wii U with another redesign: the item now looks like a small bright-red dome with what appears to be an eye design on top and purple frame.
In Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, the Motion-Sensor Bomb retains its design. If activated, it beeps while the camera zooms in on it before exploding.

- In GoldenEye 007, the Motion-Sensor Bomb did not have the green aura surrounding it when activated; this effect was added exclusively for Super Smash Bros. Melee.
- The trophies for Super Smash Bros. Brawl and Super Smash Bros. for Wii U list the item's first appearance as being Super Smash Bros. Melee; regardless of whether or not GoldenEye 007 or Perfect Dark are considered, the item still appeared earlier than Melee in the original Super Smash Bros.
