Podoboo are recurring enemies in The Legend of Zelda series.[2] They are directly based on the Lava Bubble enemies, also known as Podoboo, of the Mario series.

Characteristics

Link's Awakening

Podoboo appear in the lava-filled underground passages of Turtle Rock in Link's Awakening. They constantly jump out of pools of lava that Link must pass over by jumping with Roc's Feather and using the moving lifts. They attempt to knock Link into the lava below as they leap up.

Oracle of Seasons

Podoboo leap out of pools of lava in an attempt to knock Link into it in Oracle of Seasons. He must safely clear these lava pools by using Roc's Cape and the moving platforms. Podoboo leap out of lava pools in the side-scrolling tunnel of the Sword & Shield Maze. They are accompanied by Keese as further obstructions.

Oracle of Ages

Podoboo only appear during the battle with Head Thwomp in Oracle of Ages. The boss will sometimes release them out from the top of its head, more commonly when Link is above it while riding the spinning platforms.
