Bulbuls are large, bulbous enemies with four red, pointy legs and tiny, horned heads. They can only cause damage by approaching Links and touching them; they have no other attacks or defenses. Their spines are visible through their gelatinous centers. To defeat them, the Links must slash them back and forth, whittling down their slimy centers until their weak points can be hit, destroying them.
