How to Beat Red Bokoblin (Leader)
Red Bokoblin (Leader) is basically the same as Red Bokoblin and can be defeated with a sword or bow. Let the enemy attack first, then repel it with a shield attack. Hit the enemy immediately after using shield attack. You can take away the Monster Horn of the monster that you sometimes have by pulling it with a whip.

Red Bokoblin (Leader) wears a distinct hat, not worn by other regular Bokoblins. When you approach them, they will alert nearby Bokoblins and sometimes spawn more.

When alone, they behave like Red Bokoblins, so fight them accordingly.
