Silver Bokoblin serve as the Level 4 variant of the Bokoblin and they are the strongest Bokoblin in the base game. Unlike the weaker Bokoblins who are more of a nuisance, Silver Bokoblin are much stronger, having been influenced by Ganon's fiendish magic. The Silver name not only distinguishes the color variety of the Bokoblin, but also their rarity, as Silver Bokoblin are not at all common in the world. Their bodies also have some purple markings to distinguish themselves from the other Bokoblin.
With a health of 720, Silver Bokoblins have three times the health as a Black Bokoblin. Only the Golden Bokoblin are more powerful, who are found exclusively in Master Mode. In Master Mode, all locations where Black Bokoblin use to be have been replaced with Silver Bokoblin. Likewise, all of the locations were Silver Bokoblin were, now have the more powerful Golden Bokoblin.
Hyrule Compendium entry of the Silver Bokoblin.
- ↑ "You would be foolish to call these Silver Bokoblins a mere nuisance. They have been influenced by Ganon's fiendish magic, so they are stronger than even the Black Bokoblins. They're called "silver" not only because of their coloring but also to denote their rarity. The purple markings help them stand out even more." — Hyrule Compendium, Breath of the Wild
