The Big Green Chuchu is the Boss of Deepwood Shrine in The Minish Cap.[1][note 1]

Appears in Deepwood Shrine.
A perfectly ordinary Chuchu. Though
not much of an enemy usually, they are
terrifying to anyone Minish-sized.

The Big Green Chuchu slips its way inside the Deepwood Shrine while Link is inside exploring its depths. The Big Green Chuchu is a normal-sized Chuchu, but it is considered to be huge by Minish-sized creatures. In order to defeat the Big Green Chuchu, Link must use the Gust Jar to suck jelly from the base of the Big Green Chuchu's body. Once enough has been sucked out, the Big Green Chuchu will lose its balance and fall over, becoming susceptible to attacks from the Smith's Sword.

The reward for defeating the Big Green Chuchu is a Heart Container and the Earth Element.
