Giant Buzz Blob

The Giant Buzz Blob[1] is a mini-boss of the Color Dungeon in The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening DX and the Nintendo Switch remake. It is a large Buzz Blob that is also capable of turning into a blob-like form. In the Game Boy Color port, Giant Buzz Blob is dark blue, but for the Nintendo Switch remake, it was changed to green, matching the color of normal Buzz Blobs, although its blob form retains its dark blue color.

When the battle starts, Giant Buzz Blob boasts that Link's sword is ineffective toward it. During the battle, Giant Buzz Blob moves around the room, releasing electrical bolts in all four cardinal directions. Link must avoid the bolts and contact with Giant Buzz Blob, otherwise he gets electrocuted. To attack, Link must sprinkle Magic Powder on Giant Buzz Blob, causing it to morph into a blob shape briefly. Giant Buzz Blob is vulnerable to sword attacks in this form. Before returning to normal, Giant Buzz Blob bounces high up and lands on the ground. When Link strikes Giant Buzz Blob six times, either from his sword or by sprinkling Magic Powder, the mini-boss is defeated, and Link can obtain the Nightmare Key in the following room.


The Great Hyrule Encyclopedia[edit]

"Link encountered the Giant Buzz Blob while exploring the Secret Dungeon on Koholint Island. This pile of flesh was similar to other blobby creatures found throughout Hyrule, but it had developed the ability to generate incredible amounts of static electricity which it used to stun its prey."
