Withered Deku Baba

Withered Deku Babas are a weaker version of the Deku Baba that appear within both Ocarina of Time and Majora's Mask.

Ocarina of Time


Deku Baba
Though it looks withered, it will
hurt you if you touch it!

Withered Deku Babas are the first enemy Link encounters in the game. They are unable to damage him unless he purposely walks into them. They are notably weak enemies, requiring only a single sword slash that results in an instant death. When defeated, they typically drop a Deku Stick. They can be found in Kokiri Forest and Inside the Deku Tree.

Majora's Mask


Isn't that a Deku Baba?
But it looks a little withered...
Just cut it. You should at least
get a Deku Stick out of it.

Withered Deku Babas in Majora's Mask appear in an identical fashion as they did within Ocarina of Time. They can be found in Termina Field, Southern Swamp, and Woodfall Temple. Again, they can be easily defeated with virtually any weapon.
