The room in which Barba is encountered has three lava pits. It rises out of any of these before an attack. When it rises from the lava, it stops at a height as high as Link's maximum natural jump height. It then spits a stream of fireballs at Link, then sinks down into the lava before reappearing from another pit. Barba's only weak point is its head. Link is able to attack the head when Barba rises up from the lava, but he can also use the Jump Spell to damage it more easily. Barba's fireballs can be blocked with the help of the Reflect Spell. It is immune to the Thunder Spell and Fire Spell.
The name Barba is a mistranslation of Volvagia. In the remake of The Adventure of Link for the Game Boy Advance, as well as the port included in The Legend of Zelda: Collector's Edition, its name was changed to Volvagia.
Volga's unlockable Master Quest outfit is a recolor of his standard outfit based on Barba from Zelda II.
