Deku Babas greatly resemble their appearance from previous Zelda titles. They’re usually fixed to the ground and try to bite Link if he gets too close.

How to Defeat

When battling Deku Babas, Link must slash in the direction that the enemy’s mouth is open. Some Deku Babas need to be sliced vertically while others need to be sliced horizontally.

Later, Link can toss or roll a Bomb towards a Deku Baba and it will gobble it up before exploding within its mouth.

Some Deku Babas hang from the ceiling and are thus out of reach from Link’s sword. In order to defeat these fellows, Link can guide the Beetle to cut their stalk.
