A translation of a concept art page from Hyrule Historia. Images taken from History of Hyrule’s The Legend of Zelda art anthology.
The drawing below was designed as an outfit that King Bulblin would wear the second time you fought him. His armor was intended to fall off with each of Link’s sword strikes, but, in the end, the king defended himself against Link with two shields.
The reason its design has features in common with a Toadpoli is due to the fact that it was designed to resemble what a Toadpoli might look like after 1000 years of evolution.
