Bokoblins, you love to hate ’em.
What could have been a generic open world enemy ended up becoming one of my most frequent sources of laughter while playing Zelda: Breath of the Wild. The Tex Avery-antics these things would get into were limited only by my imagination. They’re so immensely fun to mess with, Bugs Bunny style.
This video from alterpoda encapsulates why in just under a minute. Bokoblins comically blowing themselves up is something I’ll never get tired of. And really, so much of that is enabled by the way the world and its physics work.
The bit at 0:27 where one Bokoblin blows up another because it picked up a TNT crate is a contender, but the top spot for me is taken up by the part at 0:35. It’s happened to me! Sometimes I’ll just randomly be wandering around, see an explosion, shrug, and walk away.
I’m a sucker for this sort of enemy infighting: Monster Hunter Rise nails it on a constant basis.
