Shadow Deku Baba
Palace of Twilight
Shadow Deku Babas are enemies from Twilight Princess. Shadow Deku Babas are the Twilight counterpart of the Deku Baba. This is common in Twilight Princess, to have a light world enemy with a twilight counterpart that are typically exactly the same, apart from physical appearance. Other examples include Keese and Shadow Keese, or Kargarok and Shadow Kargarok. Shadow Deku Babas pose little threat to Link, as they are stationary and cannot attack beyond their relatively meager reach. However, they do have more health than regular Deku Babas. Regular sword slashes or Spin Attacks will do, or, if in Wolf Link form, Jump Attacks work as well.
Shadow Deku Babas first appear in the Twilight-covered Faron Woods, and later appear in the additional Twilight-covered Kakariko Gorge and Hyrule Field. They appear for the final time in the Palace of Twilight.
