Bullbos are usually ridden by Bulblins. There are two Bulblins to each Bullbo, a rider and an archer. If the rider is knocked off the Bullbo, the Bullbo will begin to go out of control, knocking the remaining Bulblin off its back. The beast will continue to go on a rampage, until it crashes into a solid structure or runs off a cliff.
After knocking the Bulblins down, Bullbos can be ridden in a similar way to Epona. However, the brutish creatures are far less intelligent than Link's horse (they are one of the few animals that do not speak to Wolf Link when prompted). They don't seem to have the sense to stop before running into solid objects or even right off of a cliff. Link can't quick-dismount them the same way he can Epona, and cannot use items while riding them. When spurred or attacked with a weapon, Bullbos are harder to control but they can ram wooden structures to smash through them. They will only stop when they feel like stopping, unless they are guided into a solid wall. This will stun the Bullbo for a while and throw off its rider.
Bullbos are also used for food, as seen in the Gerudo Desert. A dead, hairless Bullbo is seen over a fire tied to a spit. If Link slashes the roast Bullbo, recovery hearts will appear, and repeated attacks will slash it open to reveal a Piece of Heart.
Bullbos make a similar appearance in Spirit Tracks. They can be found following and ramming into Link's Spirit Train in areas of the Forest Realm, Snow Realm and Fire Realm. Some Bullbos are once again mounted on by Bulblins who fire bomb arrows.
