Technoblins are enemies in Skyward Sword.[1] They are a highly-advanced variety of Bokoblins that wield ancient weaponry that harnesses electricity.


Fi's Comment

A report, master.


These Bokoblins wield sophisticated weaponry created by an ancient and highly evolved civilization.

If you are struck with the discharge from one of their electrical weapons, you may become paralyzed. These creatures also wear the latest in Bokoblin fashion.

Technoblins take on the appearance of regular Bokoblins, but wear plated armor and wield electric baton-like weapons, both of which were created by an ancient and highly-advanced civilization. They inhabited the Lanayru Desert region in large numbers long ago. It is also implied that they captured and tortured the Ancient Robots who worked in the region.[2]

Technoblins are fought using the same tactics used against Bokoblins; they use their batons to block attacks from certain angles, forcing Link to strike at an opening in their defense. However, Link will be shocked from the discharge of the electric baton should his Sword make contact with it. Technoblins can be quickly defeated with the use of a Spin Attack to knock them off their feet, then finished with a Fatal Blow.

Upon defeat, Technoblins sometimes drop Golden Skulls or Ornamental Skulls.

After Tentalus is defeated, a group of Technoblins can be found in the cell that Skipper's crew used to be in.
