Baba Serpents are enemies from The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess. They are predatory plant-beings that inhabit certain areas of Hyrule. Closely related to Deku Babas, they are much more vicious and resilient, shutting their jaws on their prey even when removed from their roots. When detached from their roots, Baba Serpents can scoot around and attack Link. If Link comes close enough, Baba Serpents will clamp their mouths around him tightly, providing no other option but to perform a Spin Attack or jump into a water source. They will also occasionally hang down from ceilings. In this case, they must be hit with a long range weapon, such as the Hero's Bow, the Gale Boomerang, or the Clawshot.

Baba Serpents have the ability to reattach to their roots if Link gets too far away from them or waits too long, provided their roots are on the ground and not on the ceiling. This ability to survive detachment is shared with its cousin, the Bio Deku Baba. When Link fights Ook, Ook will use his Boomerang to knock Baba Serpents off of the ceiling to attack Link.

The Twilit Baba is the twilit counterpart of the Baba Serpent, as, unlike regular Deku Babas, Twilit Babas have the ability to continue attacking even after their stems are cut.
