Dark blue Bots appear in the Palaces, and are marginally stronger than the overworld variety. They are just as common in the dungeons as they are in the overworld, and sometimes even appear as blue drips from statues at the top of pillars in the dungeons, similar to the dangerous red drops that appear. If these blue drops hit the ground they will turn into a Bot. Link can wait near these statues and strike the Bots as they appear to obtain more Magic Jars. The Bots that appear in the Great Palace look the same, but are even stronger than they are in other dungeons, and offer more experience. Not only that, but the Boss Bot appears in this dungeon, and splits into five very strong Bots when attacked.
- Using a Spell to turn regular enemies into weaker foes is used in later games such as A Link to the Past and Four Swords Adventures with the Quake magic and the Magic Powder turning enemies into Zols or Slimes.
- The translation of the game can give the impression that the Bot in Saria is owned by Bagu, but he is simply referring to the "master of the house" according to the Japanese version, and is likely simply squatting in the empty building.
