Deku Likes are large, monstrous plant enemies that appear in The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess. They share characteristics with a Deku Baba and a Like Like, particularly the latter's incarnation in The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past. Lone Deku Likes only appear in the Forest Temple, and some giant ones appear merged with a giant Deku Baba as a Big Baba both in the Forest Temple and the City in the Sky.
Deku Likes do not move around or actively try to attack Link unless he jumps over where one sits. If Link does so, it stretches up and swallows him before spitting him back out, causing Link to lose a heart of his health. A Deku Like can only be defeated if Link drops a Bomb into it from above, causing the Deku Like to explode. Link first explores the Forest Temple before he can carry bombs, so he must use Bomblings to defeat the Deku Likes.
