The Boe is an enemy that appears in Majora's Mask.


Boes are shuffling, hazy balls that take two forms: the Black Boe, which thrives in the darkness and beneath shadow, and the White Boe, which flourishes in high-intensity light and under snow-like conditions. Both types are not very threatening when isolated, and can be dispelled easily with a single sword swipe. However, these floating fiends tend to cluster in groups, and in such situations, Link may have to switch fighting tactics to deal with them accordingly.


Black Boe

Black Boes are Boes that hide in darkness. They can be found in Woodfall Temple, the Mountain Village, the Oceanside Spider House, Beneath the Well, and in the Stone Tower Temple. They can occasionally blend in with their backgrounds, so long as the backgrounds are dark. They can also occasionally be found in Jars.

White Boe

White Boes are the snow-dwelling counterpart of the Black Boe. They can be found around Snowhead, the Mountain Village and in the Snowhead Temple. Unlike the Black Boe, White Boes favor the brightness of the snow, rather than the darkness, and can potentially blend into their lighter surroundings. A White Boe can commonly be found in pine trees. They replace Blue Tektites as the common Snowhead enemy at night.

Before they reach the ground, White Boes resemble large snowflakes, appearing like a soft flurry.
