Bokoblins are a race of goblinoid creatures that are commonplace in the Legend of Zelda series. First appearing in Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker, these malicious creatures are typically found in the service of Ganondorf or other antagonists.
The appearance of Bokoblins has varied across different Zelda titles. Originally, they had bat-like faces and long pointed ears and horns on their heads, with skin colours varying between green, pink and blue. Since Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword, Bokoblins have been shown to have a more pudgy body type with rounded faces that sport bulbous noses and long, drooping ears.
While Bokoblins are sentient, they are not not very bright. However, they can take on various duties and can wield several different tools and weapons. In combat, they will fight hand to hand if they have no weapon available to them, regardless of how strong an opponent may be. In their various game appearances, Bokoblins have been known to wield clubs, spears, machetes, wooden shields and bows.
