Lord Bullbo is a recurring mini-boss and character in The Legend of Zelda series. It is King Bulblin's gigantic armored Bullbo steed who appears alongside him during many of his battles with Link.
Lord Bullbo is first seen at the Ordon Spring when it and King Bulblin burst through the Spring's gate. King Bulblin proceeds to kidnap the village children and clear the way for a Twilight Portal there. Later, Lord Bullbo and King Bulblin fight Link in Hyrule Field and on the Bridge of Eldin after attacking Kakariko Village and kidnapping Colin. The two return again to battle Link on the Great Hylian Bridge when the young hero escorts Telma, Ilia, and Ralis to Kakariko Village. Lord Bullbo is later seen at Hyrule Castle after Link's final duel with King Bulblin. During the end credits, after King Bulblin has allied with Link, he is seen riding Lord Bullbo around Hyrule Field.
Apart from having unusually-colored hair and wearing armor, Lord Bullbo differs from regular Bullbos in several other ways. It is much bigger and has four lower canine teeth which normal Bullbos lack. It has horns that grow from just behind its eyes instead of the standard Bullbo's tusks. Lord Bullbo's horns are not completely white as common Bullbos' tusks are. Instead, they are striped red and white and are much larger. Lord Bullbo's roar is also pitched much lower than a normal Bullbo's, likely due to its size. Since Lord Bullbo is extremely large, it is also immensely strong and can fling both Link and Epona off the Bridge of Eldin and the Great Hylian Bridge without difficulty.
Lord Bullbo is extremely fast, so Link must push Epona to the limit to keep up with it during the first fight with King Bulblin. Unlike other Bullbos, Lord Bullbo can jump fences and walls. Link is unable to directly attack Lord Bullbo; his attacks must be concentrated on King Bulblin himself. Lord Bullbo's armor is seemingly impenetrable.
Super Smash Bros. Brawl
Lord Bullbo appears along with his master in the Bridge of Eldin Stage in Super Smash Bros. Brawl. They will occasionally ride across the bridge and drop an explosive barrel which, after a short delay, destroys the central portion of the bridge. After a while, the bridge is repaired by a Twilight Portal. The two can be attacked to prevent the barrel from being dropped. In Super Smash Bros. Brawl, King Bulblin and Lord Bullbo also appear as a Sticker.
