The Bomb King Notorious Mark in Final Fantasy 16 can be found within The Crock, which is in the southeast section of the Sanbreque region. To reach this area, fast-travel to The Dragon's Aery Obelisk (or the Northreach Obelisk if you haven't unlocked that).

Next, head to the southeast corner until you reach a path that takes you onto The Imperial Chase. Then, keep going until you can take a left turning, and that should lead you onto The Crock, where the Bomb King resides.

Quite a few players have found a lot of difficulty with this as the main quests don't lead you down here, but with this guide, you'll be able to reach the Notorious Mark and complete the Hunt with ease.

Here are all of the rewards that you will earn for completing the Bomb King Hunt in Final Fantasy 16:

  • 9,000 Gil
  • 20 Renown
  • 65 Ability Points
  • 1,000 XP
  • 1x Bomb Ember

The first two are your bounty rewards for completing the Hunt, but the rest are specific to besting the Bomb King. The Bomb Ember in particular is a key part of crafting the Excalibur weapon, so you will definitely want to keep a hold of that.

Make sure to pick up the Bomb Ember after you have finished the fight too, as that is what you'll need to complete the Weird Science plus symbol side quest and increase your healing capacity in the game.

So, that's all you need to know if you are looking for the Bomb King Notorious Mark map location and rewards, as we've got you covered right here.
