First battle
Midna says:

Ugh... This doesn't look good for that kid.

If that guy rushes you, you won't stand a chance.

Do your best to avoid him and slice him as you pass!

show more...
Second battle

This guy again... What a pest...

I'm telling you, it's a waste, no matter how many times you battle him. Teach him a lesson!

Second battle once Link hits King Bulblin's shields twice

What's this guy's problem? Looks like he went and got a nice pair of matching shields!

What an idiot... He's got his sides protected, but his front is completely open.

Don't waste time going hand-to-hand with this guy. Use a projectile when the time is right!

Second battle when asked again

Take a good look at that guy and you should see a bunch of gaps in his armor. Fire arrows into those spots!

This guy fights dirty, so there's no reason we can't fight dirty, too!

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.

Other Appearances
