In The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess King Bulblin is the leader of the Bulblins, a race of small goblin-like beings. He acts as the driving force of Link's actions in the beginning of the game, before Zant's introduction: he attacks the Ordon Village and kidnaps Ilia and Colin, incapacitating Link. Link then travels the land of Hyrule to find the kids of Ordon, meeting up with and defeating King Bulblin four times over the course of his adventure.
One of these battles is set on the Bridge of Eldin: in it, Link fights against King Bulblin jousting-style, riding Epona while his foe rides Lord Bullbo, his oversized Bullbo steed. After his defeat, King Bulblin falls in the river below. Contrary to his Smash appearance, however, he is not the cause the bridge's destruction: rather, part of the bridge is transported to the Gerudo Mesa by a Twilight Portal.
King Bulblin occasionally uses a war horn to alert his Bulblin troops.
In Super Smash Bros. Brawl
As a stage hazard
King Bulblin appears as a hazard on Bridge of Eldin. Occasionally, a war horn trumpets: shortly after, King Bulblin appears from either side of the stage and rides Lord Bullbo across the bridge. When in the middle of the bridge he drops a bomb which explodes after a short while, blowing up a huge portion of the stage. He can also damage characters by running into them. Sometimes, King Bulblin is followed by a Bulblin minion on foot, which can be attacked and knocked away by players, but does not attack or cause damage itself.
Hitting King Bulblin can temporarily stun him. In this state he does not hurt characters, but he still drops the bomb.
King Bulblin's trophy appears only in Brawl.
