Fire Babas share some of their characteristics with Deku Babas in that they are plant-like creatures sprung from the ground. Unlike standard Deku Babas, these creatures do not initially attack Link by biting him. Instead, they shoot fireballs toward him. If Link can separate its head from its stem by using the Whip or the Boomerang, the Fire Baba attempts to bite Link instead. Its fireballs only do 1/4 heart of damage, but its bite can deal up to 1 3/4 hearts of damage.
