Target lock: Cursed Bokoblin

This horrifying Bokoblin reanimates after death. Analysis indicates it fears pure, shiny items and will startle at the sight of a sacred shield.

It is able to reanimate purely through its hatred of this world...and its attachment to outlandish underpants.

Undead whose hatred accords them the ability to reanimate, Cursed Bokoblins take on a decaying appearance — with skeletal and bandaged arms, glowing yellow eyes, and chipped horns — and this is further exemplified by the flies swarming around them. They are primarily encountered in the deepest depths of the Ancient Cistern, though they also appear in the Sky Keep. If Link is nearby, Cursed Bokoblins will emerge from the ground in large groups and pursue him, attacking by latching onto Link and biting him. In addition to dealing damage, their bite also places a Curse on Link.

Cursed Bokoblins recoil from shiny objects, which Link can exploit by holding up either his Goddess Sword while it is charged with the Skyward Strike or the Sacred Shield (or one of its upgrades) to keep them at bay.[3] Cursed Bokoblins can withstand many blows before succumbing, and they often get back up. Using Bombs or performing a Fatal Blow will instantly defeat them, at which point they may drop an Evil Crystal.

153 (158) Cursed Bokoblin
Description
The Malice has given these Bokoblin skulls a sort of life. Devoid of any intelligence the Bokoblin it once belonged to may have had, these pitiful things now exist only to attack anything that gets too close.
Common Locations
Unknown
Recoverable Materials
None

Cursed Bokoblins appear in Breath of the Wild as floating heads, similar to Bubbles. They are the skulls of Bokoblins that have been partially resurrected due to Malice, though they are lacking any intelligence and only focus on violence.[4]

Cursed Bokoblins are spawned from Pools of Malice with mouths. When the attached Glowing Eyeballs spot Link, Cursed Bokoblins, in addition to Cursed Moblins and Cursed Lizalfos, will exit the mouth and begin to attack him. They are only found within the four Divine Beasts and Hyrule Castle, charging at Link if he is within range. The only way to stop Cursed Bokoblins from spawning is to destroy the Glowing Eyeball creating them.
