Deku Babas greatly resemble their appearance from previous Zelda titles. They come out from underground and try to bite Link if he gets too close. A new feature is that when battling the 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. Alternatively, 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 can be seen hanging from walls or the ceiling and they are out of reach from Link’s sword. In order to defeat these fellows, Link must use the beetle or arrows. After sending out the beetle, Link can track its direction so that it cuts down the deku babas from their stems, causing them to fall to the floor in defeat. Link can also use his bow and arrow to cut these deku babas from their stem, or shoot them in the mouth to kill them directly.
Long ago, on a dark day, the earth cracked and evil forces rushed out of the fissure. These forces mercilessly attacked the people of the earth, slaughtering them and destroying their land. They did this in search of the ultimate power, a power capable of granting any wishes of its holder. This power, passed down from the gods of old, was guarded by Her Grace, the goddess of the land. The goddess gathered the surviving humans on a piece of earth and sent it skyward, beyond the clouds. With the humans safe, the goddess joined the land dwellers and fought the evil forces in a war of unmatched scale and ferocity. They eventually sealed the evil forces away, restoring peace to the surface. However, the humans remained in Skyloft, as Hylia knew that the seal on the evil would not hold forever.
You are Link, a resident of Skyloft, who, after a strange dream, sets out on a journey to save his beloved home.
