A Link to the Past
- Main article: Bari (A Link to the Past)
In A Link to the Past, there are three different types of Bari, and each of them have slightly different characteristics. The Red and Blue Bari are most common, first appearing in the Dark World within the Dark World. These enemies will occasionally electrify, shocking Link if he comes into contact with them during this phase.
Ocarina of Time
These larger versions of the Biri (that look very much like a Metroid) are very easy really, their only attack is to sit in one place and spin around. The only catch is they usually appear by falling from the ceiling. A simple sword slash will hurt you, so you're better off using Deku Nuts to stun them or a quick Spin Attack. Once damaged, they will split into three Biri. Once Link has the Boomerang, he can use it to easily kill them. In general though, it's better to just avoid them altogether.
Oracle of Ages
Until Link gets the Clawshot, just swim away from these enemies. Use the Clawshot while the Bari isn't electrically charged to pull out its brain. Then slash away to defeat the Bari.
A Link Between Worlds
Like previous games, Bari will slowly approach and occasionally surround themselves with electricity, posing some danger to Link. The sword can be used to defeat them when they are not electrically charged, but they can be more easily be defeated with a long range weapon such as the Bow or Fire Rod.
Bari can appear in four different colors, red, blue, silver, and gold. Red and blue Bari will split into two smaller Biri when defeated; while blue and silver Bari will not separate when attacked.
