When Link defeats it it leaves behind a Deku Stick. The second type lunges at Link and when they are defeated they leave behind a Deku Nut. But these Second kind can be turned into the first kind for a short while if Link hits them with a Deku Nut before killing them.
The Legend of Zelda: Twilight PrincessEdit
Deku Babas in Twilight Princess attack Link by latching on to him. While they are latched onto Link Link can not use his sword and has to wait for it to fall off. it can be killed with a couple swipes to the vine or head. Another type of Deku Baba in this game can be fought in the Forest Temple. They hang from the ceiling as well as sit from the floor. when their vine is cut instead of dieing they start chasing Link until Link hits it Two more times with his sword.
