Exploding Bloatbat is a rare hunter minion card, from the Knights of the Frozen Throne set.

How to get

Exploding Bloatbat can be obtained through Knights of the Frozen Throne card packs, or through crafting.

Card Crafting cost Disenchanting
Exploding Bloatbat 100 20
Golden Exploding Bloatbat 800 100


Exploding Bloatbat has very low stats for its cost, but has a powerful board clear as its Deathrattle effect. Since it has 1 health, its Deathrattle is easy to trigger, but for more immediate returns, cards like Play Dead can activate it on the same turn it's played.

With Baron Rivendare it can deal 4 damage to all enemy minions, allowing it to be like a Flamestrike.


In the web comic Forest for the Weary, a Pompous Thespian tells a fanciful tale about how Rexxar was transformed into Deathstalker Rexxar by Bloodreaver Gul'dan, and how he used his new powers to grant immortality and new powers to his fallen animal companions. Suddenly, the thespian is interrupted as the audience begins throwing out suggestions for the kinds of beasts Rexxar created by stitching various animals together, including an exploding bat.
