Quadro Baba Strategy

How to Beat Quadro Baba
You can slash it across its mouth the moment it opens, or hit it when it is stunned by a shield attack. You may guide the beetle from a long distance and cut the stem.

Unlike the original Deku Baba, Quadro Baba appears yellow, and true to its name, it can open its mouth into four quadrants. This allows them to avoid single direction slashes unlike Deku Babas.

The mouth of Quadra Baba may also close and become un-damageable, signalling an attack. Depending on your sword strength, you may need to hit its weak spot once, twice, or thrice.

Slash Horizontally or Vertically

During battle, Quadro Baba will rotate its weak spot horizontally or vertically. Depending on the orientation of its mouth, slice the Quadro Baba's mouth accordingly. Failing to hit it will cause its mouth to close and change directions.

Cut the Stem with Beetles

If you wish to battle Quadro Babas without directly going near, you can use Beetles to cut down the stem. Make sure to go directly below it as you may accidentally hit its head first.

Make it eat a bomb
