- "The remains of Bokoblins appear in the dark of the night. While they're fragile enough to crumble from a single blow, as long as a skull remains intact, they'll continue to pull themselves back together and go on fighting. Sometimes the body will pick up the wrong skull, but this doesn't seem to be a problem..."
- — In-game description
Stalkoblins are enemies in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. They are reanimated Bokoblin skeletons that appear at night. They can wield weapons such as Traveler's Swords or Traveler's Spears, and can also throw stones found on the ground.
Their behavior is similar to Stalchildren from Ocarina of Time, as they emerge from the ground at night. Unlike Cursed Bokoblins from this game or from Skyward Sword, Stalkoblins are completely skeletonized and lack any vestiges of their former life such as clothing or flesh. They also lack the Cursed Bokoblins' ability to Jinx.
A Stalkoblin can have its various body parts knocked off. Once this has happened, the Stalkoblin run around, trying to find things to replace the lost limbs. At times, a Stalkoblin can take other Stalkoblins' body parts (such as a head or an arm), and attach it to itself. Link can take a lost Bokoblin Arm and use it as a weapon. A Stalkoblin head can be picked up and kicked or thrown around to deal damage.
Given the fact that they are both undead Bokoblins, it is possible that Stalkoblins are actually Cursed Bokoblins that have been undead long enough for their flesh and clothing to have decayed, transforming them into Stalkoblins. Presumably, they may have lost their ability to curse during this process. Of course, it is possible that they may simply be unrelated species of undead Bokoblin.
