A yellow cloud of gas with beady eyes. It was called a "Time Bomb" in the official translation, but I prefer the original name "Counter Bomb" for its double meaning, referring both to its countdown and the fact that its explosion is a countermeasure. Either way, it takes a whole five turns to count down before exploding, but at 127 HP it's not a sure thing that you'll kill it in time. There was only one of these in Cave Story (but it respawns), in the second visit to the Egg Corridor; perhaps it's a remnant of whatever wrecked up the place?
