Stalkoblin

"The remains of Bokoblins appear in the dark of the night. While they're fragile enough to crumble from a single blow, as long as a skull remains intact, they'll continue to pull themselves back together and go on fighting. Sometimes the body will pick up the wrong skull, but this doesn't seem to be a problem..."

— Hyrule Compendium Entry[1]

Stalkoblins are enemies that appear in Breath of the Wild and Age of Calamity.

Appearances

Breath of the Wild

Stalkoblins appear only at night, and tend to swarm Link in groups of 2-3. They usually wield common weak Boko-based weapons, including Boko Clubs, Dragonbone Boko Clubs, and Spiked Boko Bows. They will collapse after a single hit, but their head will remain animated. Link will need to then attack the head one more time to defeat the enemy. Link can also pick up the head of a Stalkoblin and kick it away. If Link kicks it into deep water, the Stalkoblin can be defeated. If Link waits long enough while the bones are scattered about, eventually the Stalkoblin will try to re-assemble itself.

Upon death, they may drop some Bokoblin Horns or Fangs. Additionally, every Stalkoblin has a Bokoblin Arm attached to it, which Link can pick up and use a weapon. After Link fully defeats a Stalkoblin, all of the bones will disappear, with the exception of the Bokoblin Arm.

Stalkoblins are fairly abundant throughout Hyrule, but are most commonly found on the Great Plateau, as well as in the Ridgeland Tower and Woodland Tower regions.

If Link wears the Bokoblin Mask or Majora's Mask, the Stalkoblins will no longer attack Link, unless Link first attacks them. This is also achieved with the Disguise set bonus, which is given if Link wears a complete Phantom Ganon Set, or if has the Level 2 upgrade of the Radiant Set.

Age of Calamity

Stalkoblin are undead variants of Bokoblin that first appear during the Freeing Korok Forest scenario. After being attacked, their heads will fall off and begin floating towards the nearby warrior, requiring an additional hit to defeat.

After each Stalkoblin is defeated, it may drop a Bokoblin Horn or Bokoblin Fang. Additionally, the player will receive a Bokoblin Trophy, which can be used to complete quests or upgrade weapons of the various warrior
