|First Encounter||Tsuta Ruins|
|Attack(s)||Projectiles, Tail Whip|
Bud Ogres are large monsters that look like Treasure Buds except they have a head, spikey tail and legs. They are first found in Tsuta Ruins and their Floral Finisher is Bloom. They are similar to Chimera and Igloo Turtle.
The Bud Ogre's major weak point is the soft fruit inside their buds. They have two attacks, one is to lash out at Amaterasu with their mace like tail and the other is to spew damaging seeds from their buds. In order to attack them easily you should wait till they start firing seeds, then deflect one back at it using Power Slash. This will stun the Ogre and open its bud, thus leaving it vulnerable to attacks. If you complete this process a few times it will quickly die.
 Bestiary Entry
Transformed by the foul force of Orochi, Issun describes this beast thusly: "4 mammal legs sprouting from a bud. Frightens travelers." "The bud is rigid, but the fruit soft. Open the bud to attack." "Power Slash deflects fruits just like with the Cursed Trees."
- The plant they are based off is the hozuki plant (Physalis alkekengi).
