Bongo Bongo by Eenuh Bongo Bongo by Eenuh
Alrighty, so I got a bit bored one night and felt like drawing. Drawing fanart even. Of course since Zelda is my favourite game series, I decided to do something from there. A boss. But bosses like Volvagia have been done so many times already. So which one has probably not been drawn that often? Well, Bongo Bongo of course!
Bongo Bongo is the boss of the creepy Shadow Temple from Ocarina of Time. He likes to play the bongos. Preferably with someone on there to squash. Wheeee.

Anyway, this is an oekaki of everyone's favourite boss (yeah right)! I hope you enjoy it. =D

OMG  He is creepy, but not difficult, the light temple is more difficult in my opinion.

An excellent drawing of an excellent Zelda enemy. The distance of the hands give this picture a very real feeling. Very good work; thank you for posting!!

I always thought he looked like what one would expect to find in a deep mysterious hole under a long forgotten temple. Just some ancient mysterious entity and a good set of bongos. For all of time.

you wanna know ? I have a theory. it's a bit gloomy but that makes it fit the whole shadow temple creepiness so if you fear it, just stop reading this comment now. I wont judge you, I promise...
bye !
...
.....still reading ?
waw, you got guts, that's nice.
Ok, so here's my th-... you still have one chance to leave now, you know ?... you dont wanna ?... sure ?... no regret ?...
Ooo-kaaay...
so here's my theory :
I think at first Bongo Bongo was some kind of a primal giant or maybe something like a Twilight deity. But it, for some reason, turned bad and got punished by godesses who... cut his arms and head off (to make sure he wont cause trouble anymore I guess) and sealed his corpse in the well depths. Later, somehow (surely cause of Ganondorf curses), BongoBongo came back as a be-headed spirit with no arms to keep causing trouble around him and maybe searching for his lost head (his red "eye" come out from what remains of his neck and his made from his own force/power)
...but that's just my idea.

Ok, now is my turn:

I think Bongo Bongo was a thief who's house was there, where the kakariko-well is now.
He stole the lens of truth and hid it in the catacombs beneath his house.
The villagers found out and cut his hands off, which was a common punishment for thieves in the middle ages.
He swore revenge and his vengeful spirit remained after his death. He was Chained to the lens of truth, the only thing left from his old life and the reason for his pain, until ganondorfs dark magic brought him back in his new form. He swore to help ganon and in return his curse was broken and he could escape out of the well.

That's my theory ^^
Sry for my bad english xD

in the other hand (I use this expression after talkin about bongobongo... weird ^^' lol), maybe they just dont wanna give too much background details to avoid spoiling the mystery part of their creatures. ;P

It is a little weird because in a shadow temple you expect a spirit spooky dragon or something...

But no they just give you a monster with a flower head who plays a bongo.

But nice work

:icony-mangaka:
Y-Mangaka Featured By Owner May 14, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
that's not a flower head !...
I'ld rather think he HAD a head but got be-headed (and his arms cut) and that's what remains of his neck (and the red "eye" is kinda like his power/force form, like a heart or something) ^^'

Bongo Bongo looks really scary here. I hated battling him since he kept grabbing me and killing me. Although i did finally defeat him. i sort of liked the shadow temple and it's scary music.. yet hated being in there.

True... That IS creepy.... but still; 'bongo-bongo' isn't a very fitting name besides the drums. Maybe bongo-bongo was in a band at one point of time. I giant one. Maybe with the four red giant-thingies in termina. XD

lol hahaha XD well legends say that he used to live where the well was and he was executed either in hyrule town or thrown into the torture chambers deep in the well. either way he was revived by ganon. he had his head and hands cut off, which made him into the vile spirit he was, before link killed him...again.
