"This low-level gel monster is engulfed in flames. Its strength varies depending on its size. It tends to explode if attacked from close range, so the use of spears, arrows, and other ranged weapons is advised."

— Hyrule Compendium entry

Fire Chuchus are enemies found in Breath of the Wild and Age of Calamity. They are fire variants of the standard Chuchu.

Breath of the Wild

These Chuchus appear abundantly in the Eldin region, especially on Death Mountain and throughout the Eldin Mountain Range. As they are covered in flames, defeating one will cause it to explode, and potentially burn Link or other nearby non-fire based enemies. Fire Chuchu come in three sizes, with each having its own health meter. The smallest Chuchu has a health of just 3 HP, the medium-sized one has a health of 20 HP, while the largest Fire Chuchu has a health of 48 HP.

When a Fire Chuchu attacks, it will launch itself towards Link, setting off a burst of fire right around itself. This attack can set Link on fire, unless Link is wearing armor that is fireproof, such as the Flamebreaker Set. Alternatively, Link can avoid being burned if he has drunk an Elixir that has Flame Guard, such as the Fireproof Elixir.

After a Fire Chuchu attacks, there is a short cool down period, where Link can safely defeat the enemy. If Link defeats the enemy while it is still engulfed in flames, it will explode when defeated. Thus, it is best to attack a Fire Chuchu from a distance, using arrows or spears. These enemies are vulnerable to ice-based attacks and a single attack with an ice weapon or ice arrow will defeat a Fire Chuchu instantly. When defeated, Fire Chuchu will exclusively drop Red Chuchu Jelly as a reward.

Age of Calamity

Fire Chuchu are weaker enemies that can be taken out with a single hit. When they are attacked, they will bloat up and explode, sending out a flame attack, burning any warrior that is nearby. They will occasionally drop Red Chuchu Jelly as a reward when defeated. After each Fire Chuchu is defeated, the player will receive a Chuchu Trophy, which can be used to complete quests or upgrade weapons of the various warriors.
