Fire Baba
First appearance The Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks
Variant of Deku Baba

Fire Babas[1] are a volcanic-dwelling Deku Baba found in The Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks, first appearing on the side path from Goron Village. Unlike other Deku Babas, they have round, tulip-like petals with teeth going all the way around, resembling a lamprey's mouth. They are also larger than typical depictions of Deku Babas, being closer to the size of Boko Babas. They initially appear as a bud on the ground, but when approached, open up and extend to full height. When Link is relatively far away, they spit fire balls at him, and when close, slam their mouths onto the ground to try and capture him inside. If one succeeds, it will begin chewing on him and the player must rapidly rub the stylus across the screen to free him.

When one point of damage is given to a Fire Baba, the flower becomes detached and starts moving on its own, similar to Bio Deku Babas and Baba Serpents. They continue to try and eat Link, and now cause more damage with their bites. If he leaves them be, they will move back to their bases and reconnect. A second point of damage or a single powerful hit (such as with a Jump Attack) will defeat them. Using the whip on a detached head will simply bring it to him, while the boomerang severs the stem but does not affect the head. Bombs and Bomb Flowers defeat them instantly. Once they are defeated, the bases remain and continue wiggling slightly, but are harmless.
