Blue Chuchu... This doesn't have anything inside of it, so it's really just a blob of water.

Blue Chuchus are a special variant of Chuchu that appear exclusively in the Great Bay Temple. They do not contain any Items such as Hearts, Magic Jars, or Arrows. They are susceptible to freezing with the Ice Arrows, temporarily forming Ice Blocks that can be pushed and used as platforms.

It's a wiggly-giggly Blue ChuChu! You'll get shocked if you use your sword! Stun it with your boomerang, maybe? You might also try using a Tingle Bomb!

After obtaining the Bow

That's a wiggly-giggly Blue ChuChu! You'll go numb if you use your sword on it. You can handle it easily with an arrow! Or just use a Tingle Bomb!

Blue Chuchus are a rare, electrified variant of Chuchu. If Links attempts to touch them or strike them with his Sword, he will be stunned by their electricity. They can safely be struck with ranged weapons and the Grappling Hook. When they are hit with the Boomerang or the shockwaves generated by Bombs and the Skull Hammer, they will temporarily be stunned and lose their electrical protection. Upon defeat, they drop Blue Chu Jellies. However, each Blue Chuchu will only do this once. A Blue Chuchu that has been defeated before will instead drop a Yellow Rupee upon defeat.

As there are only 23 Blue Chuchus on the Great Sea, Link can only ever obtain 23 Blue Chu Jellies.

The Minish Cap

Blue Chuchus are found within the caves of Veil Falls and in the Palace of Winds in The Minish Cap. As soon as they emerge from the ground, they electrify themselves; they are invulnerable to Sword strikes while electrified, and must be damaged with a different Item or stunned with the Boomerang or Magical Boomerang. If Link touches one while it is electrified, it will damage him and stun him briefly.

Twilight Princess

Blue Chus appear as enemies in Twilight Princess and are more rare than Red Chus, Yellow Chus, or Purple Chus. They can be found in the Lakebed Temple, Hyrule Field, Snowpeak Ruins, and Caves. Upon defeat, they drop Blue Chu Jelly which Link can scoop up in a bottle and drink, restoring his entire Life Gauge. This jelly is functionally identical to a Blue Potion, but cannot be purchased.

Phantom Hourglass

Appearing similar to their design in The Wind Waker, Blue Chuchus constantly discharge electricity as opposed to the Yellow Chuchu's periodic bursts. As a result, Blue Chuchus cannot be killed with a sword while their defenses are up, and instead must be stunned first or dispatched by other means.

Skyward Sword



Fi's Commenthide ▲
Fi says:

Target lock: Blue Chuchu

This is a rare, aquatic Chuchu. Known for attaching itself to unaware victims, its gelatinous body will clog your air pipe, literally taking your breath away.

It is exceedingly dangerous to allow one of the larger specimens to stick to you for any length of time.

Blue Chuchus appear in Skyward Sword, though unlike some previous Zelda games, they cannot discharge electricity and remain underwater. Blue Chuchus can only be defeated by Link performing an underwater spin, though strict attention to the air gauge is necessary.
