Navi:
"Anubis

This enemy mirrors your every move and will breathe fire at you if you swing your sword. It's only vulnerable to fire, so you have to either use fire within the room or cast Din's Fire.

Navi:
"Armos
  Stop its movement and then
  destroy it!"
These statue enemies sit still until you disturb their slumber, after which they'll charge at you in short bursts before returning to their post. On their own, they are invulnerable to your sword. There's two methods to defeating them after you wake them up (by touching them): The first is to use explosives, such as Bombs, Bombchus or Bomb Flowers. The second way is to stun them with Deku Nuts, then slash them with your sword. In either case, they'll spin around, chasing after you before they eventually explode. Simply run away or use your shield until they're done for.

  Watch out for its leaping attack!
  It will explode after it's defeated!"
These small lizards will surface and chase after you, trying to jump and nip at you if they get close. If you avoid them, they'll burrow back under only to reappear moments afterwards. They're quite weak and will die with a single slash of your sword, but be warned, because they explode shortly afterwards. Perhaps you can use their blast to your advantage?

Navi:
"Bari
  If you touch it, you will be
  electrocuted!"
These larger versions of the Biri (that look very much like a Metroid) are very easy really, their only attack is to sit in one place and spin around. The only catch is they usually appear by falling from the ceiling. A simple sword slash will hurt you, so you're better off using Deku Nuts to stun them or a quick Spin Attack. Once damaged, they will split into three Biri. In general though, it's better to just avoid them altogether.

Navi:
"Beamos
  Watch out for its searching beam!
  I bet it doesn't like smoke to
  get in its eye!"
These immobile statue enemies will slowly cast their gaze in a circle and shoot anything that moves with laser beams. The only way to defeat these menacing statues is to blow them up with something explosive, like Bombs, Bombchus or Bomb Flowers, which will explode on contact. Occasionally, they'll only stun however, so you might have to do it twice.

These giant Deku Babas are exactly alike their smaller counterpart, just a little stronger and much bigger. Their weak spots are their head or the middle of their vine. A well timed Jump Attack can be most effective.

Navi:
"Big Poe
  This Poe won't disappear even
  if you stare at it. It moves
  fast despite its size!"
In Hyrule Field in the future, there are Big Poes rather than Stalchildren. This, larger and more aggressive version of the Poes hang out in specific parts of the Field and will attack you if you get close. They drop flames from their lanterns rather than hitting you directly and conventional weapons don't work against them. To defeat them, you have to ride at them with Epona and use the Fairy Bow to take them out. After that, you can collect them in bottles and bring them to the Poe Salesman at the entrance to the Hyrule Town Market. If you can bring him all ten, he'll give you an empty bottle as prize. For a full listing of all the Big Poe locations, check out our Big Poe Guide.

Navi:
"Big Skulltula
  Its soft belly is its weak point!"
These giant variety of the skull spiders are very territorial. Although very limited in movement, they pose quite the obstacle and are awkward to defeat. If you attack their front side, it will make them rock back and forth and potentially hit you. Only their backside is vulnerable, so wait until they turn around (a stupid move on their part, no?) and strike them with your weapon of choice. Later on, you can use the Hookshot or Longshot to kill them in one hit from either side!

These floating jellyfish will shock you immediately upon contact and while they can be killed with your sword, it'll also hurt you. To kill them, using Deku Nuts and then your sword is effective, and so is a quick Spin Attack. Once you have the Boomerang, you can use that to easily kill them in a single hit! In general though, you can simply avoid them altogether.

These spiked obstacles are invulnerable and come in two varieties: ones that move back and forth and ones that try to slice and dice you if you get close. Either way, they cannot be defeated, so just wait for them to get on the far side of you and sneak past. In some puzzles, you can use blocks or statues to put their path so they don't have much wiggle room.

Alike their red counterpart, these enemies jump at you slowly and are best defeated using a vertical slash of your sword. This variety floats on the surface of water, which is the only difference. Using Deku Nuts may be handy when several of them are near you, or if you're trying to swim past a tricky area, you can shoot them with your bow ahead of time.

Navi:
"Deku Baba
  Hit it when it lunges at you, and
  it will stand upright. Cut it

These venus fly trap-like enemies pose more of a threat than their wiggly counterpart. Their long, thin bodies allow them to stretch forward and snap at you quickly. Use your shield to get close and slice them in between strikes, or stand just outside their range and smack their head while it's extended, stunning it momentarily so you can go in for the kill. Depending on how you kill them, they will either drop a Deku Nut or a Deku Stick.  [more]

These bushy enemies will burrow into their nests to avoid damage. Use ranged attacks or reflect their nuts back at them with your shield to force them out of their nests. Kill them before they can return to it.

This harder version of the Lizalfos is a lot smarter, attacking you two or more at a time and dodging your attacks fairly effectively. They move quickly and will jump in to slash away when they get a chance. Focus on one and defeat it before trying to attack both.

"Dodongo

These giant lizards are slow moving and bulky, but watch out because they do a lot of damage if you're not careful. They're primary attack is to breathe fire at you, which makes them sit still for awhile. By getting close, you can make them do this, then quickly circle around and smack their tail (the only place they're vulnerable). They'll howl and spin around quickly, so get out of the way or else their tail will hit you. Circle around and repeat the process. You can even do a jump attack on their tail with a Deku Stick to take them out in one hit! If you can position yourself right, you can throw a Bomb or Bomb Flower in front of them and they'll swallow it, destroying them in one go! The other way to kill them is to simply... Shoot them with the slingshot between their attacks...

These simple enemies look just like regular doors. They do nothing unless you try to "open" them, which will make them fall on top of you. Aggravating as that is, they can be quickly avoided once you see them wiggle after attempting to go through them, and as one of the Gorons earlier mentioned, they die rather simply with a Bomb blast. You can easily tell which doors are real because real ones indent into the wall, while fake ones stick out a little ways. Just keep an eye out for this before you open any and you should easily defeat any trickery that would befall you otherwise.

If a regular Keese comes in contact with a flame, it'll become a Fire Keese, which is the same, except it can do additional damage by making you burn after it hits you. Kill them like you would any other Keese, just don't equip your Deku Shield so it doesn't get burned. The Slingshot is a good choice, as is guarding with the Hylian Shield and letting them hit that first. If you do catch on fire, slash your sword or roll to put it out.

These spider-like hands will scurry along the floor searching for prey. When they spot you, they'll turn green and rush towards you. While they're green, they're invulnerable. Wait until they're caught off guard and attack quickly. When "defeated" they'll split into three smaller hands that try to latch onto your face and suck the life out of you and potentially reunite to become a full strength Floormaster again! Deku Nuts, Din's Fire or a Spin Attack are all effective ways to kill the little ones...

Navi:
"Freezzard

These enemies are a little tricky when mixed with other foes. They attack very slowly and consistently, blowing frigid air in your direction. If its breath comes in contact with you, you'll be stuck in a block of ice, taking loads of damage. Wait for a gap in their attack and jump in for the kill! A good way to do so is to use your Hookshot for the initial attack. Watch out, cause some of them are invisible and will appear at a distance and slide towards you silently in a sneak attack. If you do get hit, press A as fast as you can to break out of the ice, otherwise, it'll keep hurting you.

Until you get the Gerudo Membership Card, the Gerudos in the Gerudo Fortress area are not entirely friendly and will toss you in their little brig of sorts if they see you. You can wait until they patrol past you in order to sneak past, or you can use various weapons to stun them easily. The Fairy Bow or Sword are by far the best stuns as they lasts until you leave the area. Strange that they don't "sound the alarm" when they wake up though... Video game logic for ya =)

Another variation of the ReDead, there really isn't anything different. If you get caught in their line of sight, they'll freeze you for a few seconds, giving them a chance to get close and potentially jump on top of you, biting on you. Munch munch... To avoid that, try to sneak up behind them or use Deku Nuts or the Sun's Song to stun them, then simply attack them from behind.

These behemoth warriors clad in armor are quite the force to be reckoned with. Their powerful ax can take a good chunk out of your life in a single swing. The best method is to lure them to attack, then rush in and get a hit between strikes. Bombs and Bombchus can damage them too, but it's harder for the second part of the fight. Halfway through the battle, they lose a layer of armor and run faster, but it also makes them more vulnerable to your sword. If you can time it well, lure them to attack, jump back, and just as they are finishing their attack, use a Jump Attack to deal lots of damage before they can retaliate. Use the Deku Stick + Jump Attack combo or the Biggoron Sword to deal with these enemies quickly. If you're having trouble with them, use Nayru's Love to become invincible for a short period of time; unfortunately they still knock you over when you get hit, but they won't take a good chunk out of your life this way.

These simple bats are in most of the dungeons in the game. They often hang on the walls or ceilings and begin moving when you come close. If there is a torch nearby, they will fly into it to become either Fire or Ice Keese, making them much more deadly. Projectile weapons are effective against them, but so is your sword and shield. Just be ready to Z Target them when they get close.

When they first appear, they begin moving towards the direction you're traveling. Use this to your advantage and either zigzag as they're appearing or change the direction you're traveling a little after they appear. You can also get on top of rocks to keep them from attacking.

These obnoxious piles of spam are always hungry. If you get too close, they'll reach out towards you (making their front side invulnerable) and suck you in if you're too close. If they do manage to get you, they'll steal your shield and your special tunics if you're wearing one. If you don't kill them fast enough after that, they'll digest them completely. Slash them between their attacks when they're vulnerable as quick as you can!

They attack quite slowly and are very vulnerable the rest of the time. Use your shield to get close and slash them. Alternatively, you can shoot them from afar with your Slingshot, or stun them with Deku Nuts. Either way, three hits with the Kokiri Sword will finish them.

Sometimes they will fly up high in the air and make PeaHat Larva, which are miniature versions of itself that are invulnerable, but die quickly. They will also spit these things out if you attack them while they're still in the ground. The best plan is to avoid these large enemies altogether, it's just not worth the trouble.

You can defeat them by shooting them with quick ranged weapons, using Deku Nuts, your sword, or simply using your shield and running into them on purpose, causing them to wobble around until they hit the ground.

They only appear at specific, set points, however, so once you memorize these areas, you can simply avoid them. If you see one, the best course of action is usually to just use your shield, deflecting them and getting rid of their flame, allowing you to slash them with your sword.

Although very limited in movement, they pose quite the obstacle and are awkward to defeat. If you attack their front side, it will make them rock back and forth and potentially hit you. Only their backside is vulnerable, so wait until they turn around (a stupid move on their part, no?) and strike them with your weapon of choice. Later on, you can use the Hookshot or Longshot to kill them in one hit from either side!

These spiders are found only on vertical surfaces. If you get too close, they will rush towards you and knock you off the wall. It's possible to sneak past them when they're turned the other way, but the use of ranged weapons easily shows them who's boss.

These simple enemies only come after you when you get close, spinning slowly towards you. They're only really deadly underwater and can be easily avoided by running away. If you wait long enough or they hit you, they'll curl into  a rock. At any point you can Z target them and use your Hookshot to force them into their cocoon, and then do away with them.

These skeletal enemies appear only at night in Hyrule Field as a child. If you walk for a little ways, they will burry themselves back into the dirt, only to reemerge later. While they are easy to defeat with two hits of just about anything, their numbers are endless. Just stay on the roads to avoid confrontation. Also, while it's technically not any different, occasionally a giant one appears!

These skeletal warriors make their return from previous Zelda titles. Watch out for their jump attack, which can do a great deal more damage to you than their regular sword attacks. Use Z targeting to get close while using your shield, then take a quick stab as soon as you see them let their shield down. Try to circle around them when they jump at you. Also, if you get right in their face, you can easily "force them" to attack and get a quick stab in. If done right, you can take them out very quickly this way...

Navi:
"Stinger
  Destroy it before it flies into you!"
These stingray-like enemies have the ability to float in and out of the water, then dive at you at high speeds. Although weak, they can be unpredictable and are quite dangerous in large groups. Close attacks work, but ranged attacks are much easier to defeat them. Keep Deku Nuts handy so you can stun them if they get too close (such as diving towards you). As long as you're quick and are aware of their location, these enemies pose little danger. When they're in the floor, you can walk over them to lure them out of the ground, then quickly shoot them with your Slingshot.

"Tailpasaran

These long, floating, glowy enemies are electric, alike almost every enemy in this dungeon. Their head is invulnerable, so their only weak spot is their blue body. Once again, if you use your sword, you'll be harmed, so the only way to really defeat them is to either use Deku Sticks or the Boomerang. They're also pretty easy to avoid, so that may be a better option.

Navi:
"Torch Slug

  Destroy it before it relights!"
These flaming puddles of goop have quite the personality. If they see you, they'll relentlessly follow you around, jumping at you until you are out of reach. They can rack up quite a bit of damage, so quickly use any attack you deem appropriate. If you're catching them off guard, your sword will easily do the job, otherwise, Deku Nuts are quite effective. Once they've been hit, their flame will be extinguished, leaving them vulnerable and scared. Chase them down and smack away at them before their flame returns to defeat them. Once you have acquired the Megaton Hammer, you can use it to hit the ground, flipping them and making them completely helpless. Heh heh.

One of the most annoying enemies in the entire series, these giant, evil hands will fall from the ceiling and snatch you away, taking you all the way back to the beginning of the dungeon! You can tell when they're in the room by the sound they make and the shadow that appears below you. To kill them, wait until the shadow is pretty large, then run away. When you hear them thump on the ground, turn back around and slash away at them twice to kill them before they jump back to the ceiling.

This snowy rendition of an old enemy fights the same way. Just Z target it and keep your shield up. Right before it slashes, back up so it turns around, then stab it in the back to deal extra damage! It shouldn't be a problem for you...

These withered versions of the regular Deku Baba are incredibly weak. They don't even attack and a single hit from any attack of your own will kill them. The only way for them to hurt you is if you walk into them. I think we can handle them, don't you? When defeated, they will always drop a Deku Stick, making them often times conveniently placed in rooms with a few unlit torches. Funny how that works, huh?

These wolf like enemies will circle around you, then come in and quickly swipe at you with the long claws on their forepaws. Use Z targeting techniques to get close and avoid their attacks, then slash them when their guard is down. You can kill them quickly by using a Jump Attack (Z + A) when they're back is to you. Also, while Z targeting one, any others nearby won't attack you. Using Deku Nuts or the Hookshot to stun them can be an effective strategy as well.
