Electric Chuchus are enemies in The Legend of Zelda series.[1]


Breath of the Wild[]

Hyrule Compendium Entry

087 (087) Electric Chuchu
BotW Hyrule Compendium Electric Chuchu
This low-level gel monster is engulfed in electricity. Its strength varies depending on its size. It tends to explode if attacked from close range, so the use of spears, arrows, and other ranged weapons is advised.
Common Locations
Gerudo Highlands
East Necluda
Recoverable Materials
Yellow Chuchu Jelly

Electric Chuchus can be found in the Gerudo Desert and in areas near Lake Floria. Link will get an electric shock if he touches an Electric Chuchu or is attacked by one. Electric Chuchus will emit an electrical blast when they lunge towards Link, which can shock him if he is within range. Damage will be doubled if Link has any metal equipped. If Link is electrocuted while using any metal equipment he may have equipped, he will drop the equipment.

After releasing their shock, Electric Chuchus will temporarily enter a "powered-down" form, marked by a darker yellow color; during this period, they cannot release additional shocks and can be struck without electrocuting Link. After a few seconds, the Chuchu will re-charge itself and return to its electrified state. If they are defeated while in their powered-up state, they will explode in an electrified blast that will electrocute any vulnerable entities within its range; this will not occur if they are defeated in the powered-down form. Electric Chuchus will drop Yellow Chuchu Jelly upon being defeated.

Other Appearances[]

Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity[]

Electric Chuchus reappear in Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity, acting the same way as in Breath of the Wild. The Giant variants reappear in the game through the Pulse of the Ancients DLC missions, attacking by rolling towards the player, slamming down, and releasing the small Electric Chuchus at the player.
