Rockets' Red Glare is a badge earned in Cactus McCoy and the Curse of Thorns. It is earned by defeating thirty Enemigos using a bazooka.
- Bazookas are most commonly found in Sunset Gulch, the tenth area. This is also the area where it is introduced, so the badge can easily be gotten here. Emerald Temple can also be tried to do this, though.
Its name may be a reference to a line of the USA's National Anthem (The Star-Spangled Banner), "And the rockets' red glare, the bombs bursting in air".
