Bawbs are Bomb-like enemies that appear in A Link Between Worlds.


Bawbs become active Bombs when they are attacked. They can be used to solve Crystal Switch puzzles and blast open cracks in floors. They will regenerate after they explode, similar to Bomblings in Twilight Princess. In the Desert Palace and Swamp Palace, Bawbs attempt to home in on Link, while others, like those in Thieves' Hideout and Lorule Castle, wander randomly.


Bawb is most likely a pun on "Bomb".
