The Ceramic Bloon is a Bloon introduced in Bloons TD 3 under the name "Brown Bloon" that takes ten hits to pop. Once popped, it releases two Rainbow Bloons. In Bloons TD 3 it first appears in round 31. In Bloons TD 4 and Bloons TD 5 it first appears in round 40. If a Ceramic Bloon escapes 104 lives are lost, which means an instant game over on Hard, and a two hit on Easy and Medium. Ceramic Bloons contain 2 Rainbow Bloons.
Being considerably easier to pop than its parent, grandparent, and great-grandparent, Ceramic Bloons are a serious threat in numbers that shouldn't be unfocused. If the player has a large amount of potent towers, then Ceramic Bloons and its descendants aren't really a threat. However, popping many Ceramic Bloons without many strong towers or weaker towers is difficult. They can be a minor cause of lag to your computer. Glue can't slow them down, however Corrosive Glue can harm them and can crack the layers. There are many levels in which Ceramic Bloons come in big groups, which can be extremely deadly without strong towers.

- They are the third fastest Bloons in Bloons TD 5, following the Pink and Yellow Bloons.
- In Bloons Super Monkey, it has sixteen layers instead of ten.
- In Bloons TD 3, Ceramic Bloons were simply called Brown Bloons. The name "Ceramic Bloon" came from a preround message saying that they were made of ceramic.
