Deku Scrub Zelda OoT for Link's Blacklist


This is the Deku Scrub from The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, one of the minor enemies there inside the Deku Tree Dungeon.

These little foes spit Deku Nuts at Link, but if he defeats them, they are not destroyed unlike other enemies and instead run away in panic.

If Link is able to approach them, they will plead him for mercy and help him with advices through the dungeon.


Our first illustration of the Deku Scrub was done by Pedro Vinícius from Brazil who is on board Link’s Blacklist since the first round in summer 2012 already!

Loving the unusual perspective used for this drawing.

“Hmm, Link maybe you should look over your shoulder… :paranoid:

This guys hair sure took a while :phew:.
I like how this one turned out considered that I often have it hard to find a good light balance in indoor environments (or giant tree in this case)”

Those Deku Scrubs and especially the Mad Scrubs can be quite a hassle in Zelda: Ocarina of Time, good that it is possible to use the Shield to deflect their own weapon of choice, the Deku Nuts and make them tell Link some hints about the dungeon.

Martina. T aka. Irete from Sweden drew  a couple of artworks for GA-HQ projects already and creates very beautiful and mostly Nintendo related video game fan art since years!
