  Arm Mimic  Arm Mimic
Threat:
Speed:
 - Medium
 
Attacks:
  Contact
 
Defense Power:
 - 3 Hits
 
Arm Mimic
Description:
 - Arm Mimics are scarce enemies and can be very annoying whenever you encounter them. Whichever way you move, they mirror your every step. If you walk up, then they walk down. If you walk left, then they walk right. To get rid of these pesky creatures, either back them into a wall, or move carefully so that they will slowly move towards you. Slash away a few times with your sword to get rid of them. Be sure to be careful because these fellas do quite some damage.  

  Armos  Armos
Threat:
Speed:
 - Medium
 
Attacks:
  Contact
 
Defense Power:
 - Invincible to everything but bombs; 1 Hit
 
Armos
Description:
 - Armos are stationary statues that don't do anything unless a switch is triggered. However, not all Armos come to life. Since they are invulnerable to sword attacks and almost everything else, the only way to defeat these enemies is to hurl a bomb at them, which can be hard to place correctly since they move around so much. If you have the Biggoron's Sword, which is only obtained by a secret, then you can simply walk up and slash these monsters to do away with them.  

  Ball and Chain Trooper  Ball and Chain Trooper
Threat:
Speed:
 - Slow
 
Attacks:

  Ball and Chain
 
Defense Power:
 - 4 Hits
 
Ball and Chain Trooper
Description:
 - Ball and Chain Troopers, as depicted by their name, are soldiers who wield ball and chains, swing them above their heads, and then hurl them at Link in an attempt to hurt him. They are somewhat easier to avoid in bigger areas, as their weapons only travel straight and don't bend. Whenever the soldier throws its ball and chain, move out of the way and move in from the side and slash at him. Don't attempt to take multiple slashes at once, as they will retract their ball and chain and start swinging it rather quickly. With a bit of patience these tough enemies should be no problem.  

  Bari  Bari
Threat:
Speed:
 - Medium
 
Attacks:
  Contact
  Electrocute
 
Defense Power:
 - 1 Hit
 
Bari
Description:
 - These Jellyfish are only found underwater of course, and can be rather annoying to some people who happen to be impatient. Whenever they light up they are charging electricity, which means you shouldn't strike them with any weapon that makes direct contact. To defeat them, you must wait until they stop charging electricy and take a swipe at them with your sword. Much like a Zol, Bari will split into two smaller Jellyfish known as biri.  

  Beamos  Beamos
Threat:
Speed:
 - Medium
 
Attacks:
  Beam
 
Defense Power:
 - Invincible
 
Beamos
Description:
 - Beamos are small statues that jut out of the ground and have one big eyeball on the front of it. The eye scans the room for anybody who shouldn't be there. Since they are invincible and cannot by defeated by any means whatsoever, you must simply run past them. Whenever the eye scans across you it will shoot a beam out which will knock Link backwards and cause him damage. The beam is quite annoying but luckily it is not hard to avoid. Equip Roc's Feather and just jump over the laser to avoid it. Alternatively, if you have the mirror shield, it will block the laser beam.  

  Beetle  Beetle
Threat:
Speed:
 - Slow
 
Attacks:
  Contact
 
Defense Power:
 - 1 Hit
 
Beetle
Description:
 - These are easily the weakest and least possible threat to Link in the game. These enemies are not encountered regularly, but instead are only dug up from the ground. With very low defense, attack, and speed, these enemies only have the element of surprise on their side whenever you dig these enemies up from underneath soft earth. Just simply avoid it whenever it pops out from under the ground and slash at it to get rid of it easily.  

  Biri  Biri
Threat:
Speed:
 - Medium
 
Attacks:
  Contact
 
Defense Power:
 - 1 Hit
 
Biri
Description:
 - These jellyfish are smaller than Bari, and are encountered whenever you slay a Bari. Rarely appearing without the presence of a Bari which has been defeated, these enemies simply swim around under the water and bump into Link, causing him damage. Unlike Bari, Biri don't charge themselves with electricity in an attempt to shock you. Just swim over to them and slash them with your sword to defeat them.  

  Blade Trap Blue  Blade Trap (Blue)
Threat:
Speed:
 - Fast, then Slow
 
Attacks:
  Contact
 
Defense Power:
 - Invincible
 
Blade Trap Blue
Description:
 - These traps are common in quite a few Zelda games and are often known to be quite the nuisance. Whenever you walk towards them they speed out across the room in an attempt to hit Link. Since they are invincible, there is no point in trying to damage them. To avoid them, just walk up towards them and when they begin to retract after they charge at you they will move slower, giving you time to run past them. Roc's Feather is a good tool for dodging these traps, as you might need to do in a few dungeons to get some puzzles solved.  

  Blade Trap Green  Blade Trap (Green)
Threat:
Speed:
 - Fast
 
Attacks:
  Contact
 
Defense Power:
 - Invincible
 
Blade Trap Green
Description:
 - These blade traps are like the Blue Blade Traps with one exception. When they charge at you they don't collide or slow down to retract. When you walk towards them they charge straight out and criss-cross each other's paths and keep going until they hit the wall. Since they don't stop and retract, you have to rush through to avoid these enemies.  

  Boulder  Boulder
Threat:
Speed:
 - Fast
 
Attacks:
  Contact
 
Defense Power:
 - Invincible
 
Boulder
Description:
 - Boulders are more a trap rather than an enemy. Found on Restoration Wall near Symmetry City, they fall from holes at the top of the wall and try to hurt you when you are climbing it. They can be quite pesky, especially if you have lower heart levels. Just try to steer out of the way to avoid these boulders since you can't defeat them.  

  Bubble  Bubble
Threat:
Speed:
 - Medium
 
Attacks:
  Contact
 
Defense Power:
 - Invincible
 
Bubble
Description:
 - Bubbles are floating skulls with red "bubbles" floating around the outside of it. They bounce off of walls and try to bump into Link, which causes him damage and disables use of his weapons for a limited amount of time. There is no way to defeat this enemy and it can be very annoying when you have several enemies to battle at once. Simply try to avoid this enemy whenever you see it.  

  Buzz Blob  Buzz Blob
Threat:
Speed:
 - Slow
 
Attacks:
  Contact
  Electrocute
 
Defense Power:
 - Invincible to everything but Seed Shooter; 1 Ember Seed
 
Buzz Blob
Description:
 - Not to be confused with ChuChus, these electrical blobs slide along at a very slow pace and aren't that hard to avoid if you are in a spacy, open area where you can navigate around them. Due to their slow speed, they are hard to get around if you are in a small area where there is not much room to manuver. Do not attempt to strike this enemy with your blade, for you will be electrocuted causing a large amount of damage. Either use your boomerang to stun it and hit it with your sword, or use your seed shooter. If you sprinkle a mystery seed on a buzz blob, it will become a Cukeman.  

  Candlehead  Candlehead
Threat:
Speed:
 - Medium, then fast
 
Attacks:
  Contact
 
Defense Power:
 - Regular attacks ineffective; 1 ember seed
 
Candlehead
Description:
 - Candleheads, as clearly expressed by their names, are walking candles. They do some massive damage but are pretty easy to avoid... at first that is. To defeat a candlehead just shoot an ember seed at it from your seed shooter and it will dart around the room. They do end up moving rather fast, so be sure to avoid it before it explodes.  

  Cheep Cheep  Cheep Cheep
Threat:
Speed:
 - Medium
 
Attacks:
  Contact
 
Defense Power:
 - 1 Hit
 
Cheep Cheep
Description:
 - Cheep Cheep are small fish that swim around waterways and sometimes are hard to navigate around. These fish may be small and do barely any damage, but you don't want to have to travel through a crowded waterway, because the damage can build up quickly. One sword slash will take care of these pesky fish.  

  Crow  Crow
Threat:
Speed:
 - Fast
 
Attacks:
  Contact
 
Defense Power:
 - 1 Hit
 
Crow
Description:
 - These birds are very unpredictable creatures and swoop down without notice. The most common place to find them is in the graveyard. Don't get too close to them or your reaction will be much to late. Hit them with the sword or another weapon to take them out as they charge towards you.  

  Cukeman  Cukeman
Threat:
Speed:
 - Very Slow
 
Attacks:
  Contact
  Electrocute
 
Defense Power:
 - Invincible to everything but Seed Shooter; 1 Ember Seed
 
Cukeman
Description:
 - Cukeman are not encountered by normal means in the game, but instead are only found by sprinkling a mystery seed on a Buzz Blob. These creatures look strangely like trees and have two large eyes and slide around like the Buzz Blobs. Despite their different form, they are no different than the Buzz Blobs other than the aspect of their appearance and a little something else. If you stun them with your boomerang, or if you're lucky, just walk up to them, you can talk to them and they say a pointless phrase which usually isn't very helpful. Be careful when doing this though, because they still cause damage as normal. To defeat them just use the same tactics as you do for the Buzz Blob, with the seed shooter being the safest method.  

  Darknut Blue  Darknut (Blue)
Threat:
Speed:
 - Medium, then fast
 
Attacks:
  Contact
  Arrow
 
Defense Power:
 - 5 Hits
 
Darknut Blue
Description:
 - Darknuts commonly appear in a few Zelda games and are easily some of the most-feared enemies. Some darknuts charge at you on sight and repeatedly attack you, giving you a tough time to strike. Defend and strike is the only way to take out these ruthless enemies. For their arrow-shooting counterparts, just defend occasionally against a well-aimed arrow and slice at them. Using the boomerang to freeze them is also a great strategy for defeating them.  

  Darknut Red  Darknut (Red)
Threat:
Speed:
 - Medium and Fast
 
Attacks:
  Contact
 
Defense Power:
 - 3 Hits
 
Darknut Red
Description:
 - These Darknuts are a bit easier than the Blue Darknuts. For the sword-wielding ones, just defend against their charges and slice away from the side. For the arrow-shooting ones, just defend against the arrows and run up and try to get in a few slashes to finish them off. The boomerang works well in freezing the darknuts, allowing for an easy kill.  

  Fire Keese  Fire Keese
Threat:
Speed:
 - Fast
 
Attacks:
  Contact
 
Defense Power:
 - 1 Hit
 
Fire Keese
Description:
 - As depicted by the name, these are keese, except they are on fire. They do some massive damage, so watch out for them. They come in and swoop down to attack and can be very difficult to take out. After they hit you they turn to regular keese, but unfortunately if they find and run into a torch they become fire keese again. It's best to avoid these enemies as they are pretty difficult. If you do choose to fight with them, just keep in eye out and time it when they swoop down.  

  Fire Pokey  Fire Pokey
Threat:
Speed:
 - Immobile
 
Attacks:
  Contact
  Fireball
 
Defense Power:
 - 3 Hits
 
Fire Pokey
Description:
 - Fire Pokey are tall enemies composed entirely of Fire and two black eyes. They stay in one place and sway around, occasionally firing fireballs at you to damage you. Try to defend against the fireballs and run up for a few quick slashes against this enemy to dispose of it without harm.  

  Floormaster  Floormaster
Threat:
Speed:
 - Slow
 
Attacks:
  Contact
 
Defense Power:
 - 3 Hits
 
Floormaster
Description:
 - Floormasters are rather annoying enemies that, of course, come out of the floor. These monsters only come in blue and they creep around rooms and try to grab Link. If they are successful in doing so, then Link is carried back to the beginning of the dungeon, forced to find his way back to where he was. These enemies are rather slow, but whenever they appear, they appear in large groups and tend to surround Link, making it hard to navigate in rooms full of floormasters.  

  Gel  Gel
Threat:
Speed:
 - Slow
 
Attacks:
  Contact
 
Defense Power:
 - 1 Hit
 
Gel
Description:
 - Gels are the exact same as the Red Zol, except they are much smaller and merely stick themselves to you, hindering your movement. Gels do not cause any damage but are still quite annoying if they attack to you. They jump off of you after a little while, though. They can be taken out easily with just a single swipe of your blade.  

  Ghini  Ghini
Threat:
Speed:
 - Fast
 
Attacks:
  Contact
 
Defense Power:
 - 5 Hits
 
Ghini
Description:
 - These ghosts resemble Poe from other Zelda games. These creatures can float through the walls, thus making them a tough target to hit at times. Due to the fact that they take so many hits to defeat they can prove to be a challenging enemy. Just run in and swipe multiple times with your sword to finish it off.  

  Giant Blade Trap  Giant Blade Trap
Threat:
Speed:
 - Fast
 
Attacks:
  Contact
 
Defense Power:
 - Invincible
 
Giant Blade Trap
Description:
 - These blade traps are huge and follow a set path. To avoid them, Link must make sure he doesn't stay in the way of the path and run to avoid it. It does some great damage, so make sure that you don't come in contact with it.  

  Gibdo  Gibdo
Threat:
Speed:
 - Medium
 
Attacks:
  Contact
 
Defense Power:
 - 4 Hits
 
Gibdo
Description:
 - Gidbo are mummies that roam around a few dungeons and attempt to bump into you. Unlike other enemies, when slashed with a sword they don't falter at all, but instead keep coming towards you, which can provide a problem when facing groups, because the damage really builds up. Since they don't coil back when being hit, be careful and move in and out as you slash away with your sword. The best strategy is to burn their wrappings with an ember seed, revealing a red stalfos, which is much easier than facing the Gibdo itself.  

  Goponga Flower  Goponga Flower
Threat:
Speed:
 - Immobile
 
Attacks:
  Contact
  Fireball
 
Defense Power:
 - Invincible to regular attacks; 1 Hit Switch/Long Hook
 
Goponga Flower
Description:
 - These flowers are found taking root in Jabu Jabu's Belly. They shoot fireballs at Link and can be quite pesky at times. To defeat them, just launch your Switch Hook or Long Hook at them and they will be gone easily. Don't try using regular weapons, as they do nothing.  

  Guard  Guard
Threat:
Speed:
 - Fast
 
Attacks:
  Contact
 
Defense Power:
 - 5 Hits
 
Guard
Description:
 - Guards are only found in Ambi's Palace late in the game. They roam around the palace(not the ones in the garden), and when they spot you they charge at you at an amazingly alarming speed. If they hit you they cause some decent damage and are hard to fend off. It's best to try sneaking around, which isn't always so easy. After quite a few slashes they will hop off out of the room.  

  Hardhat Beetle  Hardhat Beetle
Threat:
Speed:
 - Medium
 
Attacks:
  Contact
 
Defense Power:
 - Invincible to all attacks
 
Hardhat Beetle
Description:
 - Since these enemies are invincible, trying to use any weapon as means to defeat them by just hitting them is simply pointless. The only way to get rid of these pesky, constantly persisting enemies is to repeatedly whack them with your sword until they fall into a pit. They can be annoying in groups, as they don't stop coming towards you. Avoiding them is the best way to deal with them, but often times you must knock them into pits to open up doors, which can be rather bothersome.  

  Iron Mask  Iron Mask
Threat:
Speed:
 - Slow
 
Attacks:
  Contact
 
Defense Power:
 - 1 Hit; invincible from front with mask on
 
Iron Mask
Description:
 - Also called Hiploops and not to be confused with helmasaur form other games. These enemies have protective iron masks around their faces, making them invincible from the front. The masks can however be pulled off with the Switch Hook, making them vulnerable from the front. To defeat these enemies without the Switch Hook just try and make your way to the back of the body and slash with your sword once.  

  Keese  Keese
Threat:
Speed:
 - Fast
 
Attacks:
  Contact
 
Defense Power:
 - 1 Hit
 
Keese
Description:
 - These are common enemies in the Zelda series often found flying around in caves and dungeons. They are possibly the most common enemy in the game. They can be rather annoying when in large groups or when facing tougher enemies. Try taking them out from a distance with the boomerang once you have obtained it so you don't have to worry about them when you're fighting the tougher enemies. They are also tough targets since they can fly over gaps and "go through" the walls. A slash with the sword also finishes these enemies off.  

  Leever Blue  Leever (Blue)
Threat:
Speed:
 - Medium
 
Attacks:
  Contact
 
Defense Power:
 - 2 Hits
 
Leever Blue
Description:
 - Just like the red leevers these guys pop out from under the ground, but with a twist of coming out of the water too. Not only that, but instead of traveling in a straight direction they can move left and right and up and down at will. Be careful when moving around because these guys usually pop up around places where you're bound to go. Just run up and place a couple swift slashes.  

  Leever Red  Leever (Red)
Threat:
Speed:
 - Medium
 
Attacks:
  Contact
 
Defense Power:
 - 2 Hits
 
Leever Red
Description:
 - Red Leevers pop out from under the ground at random locations on the screen. They usually appear above ground for a few seconds before returning underground and popping up elsewhere. Be careful as they usually appear with other enemies. They only travel in straight directions and try to bump into you. Just move out of the way and slash them a couple of times to defeat these enemies.  

  Like Like  Like Like

Attacks:

Defense Power:
 - 3 Hits
 
Like Like
Description:
 - Like Like are some of the most annoying enemies in the Zelda series and are known to devour a certain item of yours. Since almost every item in this game you only have one chance to get, it only devours your shield when you come in contact with one, causing you to have to purchase a new one. They normally travel in groups, so be on your guard when trying to take them out and don't let them suck you up. It is best to just avoid these creatures and if you must battle them, you can freeze them with the boomerang.  

  Lynel Blue  Lynel (Blue)
Threat:
Speed:
 - Fast
 
Attacks:
  Contact
  Spear
 
Defense Power:
 - 6 Hits
 
Lynel Blue
Description:
 - These are easily the most challenging and annoying enemies in the game. Referred to as Fire Cats in the booklet, these wolves charge up at you and deal some massive damage, and once they start pounding you it's hard to get them off. Defend with your shield and run up for some quick slices to finish them off, but beware, because only the Mirror Shield(Lv. 3) can block their spears. They have a rather good sense of aim with their spears as well , so watch out. If you have the boomerang use it to freeze them, making for a much easier kill.  

  Lynel Red  Lynel (Red)
Threat:
Speed:
 - Fast
 
Attacks:
  Contact
  Spear
 
Defense Power:
 - 4 Hits
 
Lynel Red
Description:
 - These lynel act the same as the blue lynel and do the same damage with each attack. The only difference is that they take one less hit to take down. Once they see you they tend to charge at you, and their spears, just like the blue lynel, can go through walls. To defeat them, just walk up to them and start slashing away, but beware since they don't falter when you strike them, but instead keep coming towards you. Use the boomerang to freeze them, making for a much easier kill.

Mini Moldorm
Description:
 - Moldorm has been a staple enemy throughout the Zelda series. In the Oracle of Ages, there are mini versions of a Moldorm snake, which are simply known as a mini moldorm. They move around the room at a fast speed and try to bump into Link. It usually is not too hard to dodge their attacks. Just run out of the way and slash at them a few times to defeat these little Moldorms.  

  Moblin Blue  Moblin (Blue)
Threat:

Attacks:

Defense Power:

Moblin Blue
Description:
 - These are almost exactly like the Red Moblin, only some wield swords and none of them wield boomerangs. They have stronger defense power and take one more hit to defeat. When one with a sword spots you, it will charge at you. Defend against the attack and slice at it with your sword a couple times to defeat it. For the arrow-wielders just guard against the arrows using your shield, and then run in for a couple sword slashes.

MoblinPigBlue
Description:
 - These moblin are a variation of the blue moblin. For sword wielding moblin pigs, just guard against their charge when they see you, and get in a couple whacks with your sword from the side. For the ones that fire arrows, simply block against the projectile and slash away. While similar to their blue moblin counterparts, the blue pig moblin takes one less hit to defeat.  

  Moblin Pig Red  Moblin Pig (Red)

Moblin Pig Red
Description:
 - These red moblin pigs are a variation of the red moblins. They have the same attributes and act the same, and unlike red moblins, also wield swords like the blue ones. To defeat the sword-wielders just guard against their charges with your shield and then slash from the side where they aren't holding their sword. For the other types of pic moblins, just guard against the projectiles that are aimed at you and run up for a quick slash. While similar to their red moblin counterparts, the red pig moblin takes one less hit to defeat.

Attacks:

  Rock
 
Defense Power:

Octorok Blue
Description:
 - These Octoroks are a bit different than their counterpart, the red Octoroks. They move the same and they have the same attacks but different in damage and defense. Just block their rocks with your shield or avoid them and hit them with your sword a couple of times to finish them off.  

  Octorok Red  Octorok (Red)

Octorok Red
Description:
 - The octorok is one of the most common enemies in the Zelda series. They are found wandering about the land and shoots rocks at you from a distance. They don't pose much of a problem as they also have almost no sense of aim. Just run up and slash at them with the sword to defeat them.  

  Peahat  Peahat
Threat:
Speed:
 - Fast
 
Attacks:
  Contact
 
Defense Power:
 - 2 Hits
 
Peahat
Description:
 - Peahats are also a very common enemy in the Zelda series, which some find to be rather annoying. These enemies fly around dungeons and cannot be hit while they are doing so. Most of their path is random but they occasionally dive towards Link. Wait until they land on the ground and then quickly strike at them.  

  Pincer  Pincer
Threat:
Speed:
 - Fast
 
Attacks:
  Contact
 
Defense Power:
 - 3 Hits
 
Pincer
Description:
 - These enemies hide in shallow water and in holes in various places. If you see eyes peeking out of a small puddle or a hole, make sure you move away quickly to avoid the pincer's lunge towards you. Roc's Feather is also a good tool for avoiding them. When they pop out slash your sword a few times to do them in. It sometimes is difficult to slash at them without getting hit, so the better strategy is to just avoid pincers whenever possible.  

  Pols Voice  Pols Voice
Threat:
Speed:
 - Medium
 
Attacks:
  Contact
 
Defense Power:
 - Invincible to regular attacks
 
Pols Voice
Description:
 - Pols Voice sort of look like rabbits and hop around the dungeon trying to bump into you. They can hop great distances toward Link, but are pretty easy to avoid. It's pointless to attack a Pols Voice with a sword or any other weapon. However, their ears are very sensitive and with one play of the Strange Flute or Harp of Ages you can defeat them easily. Alternatively, bombs also work against a Pols Voice.  

  River Zora  River Zora
Threat:

Attacks:
  Contact
  Fireball
 
Defense Power:
 - 2 Hits
 
River Zora
Description:
 - These zora are found in the rivers throughout the game and peek their heads above the surface and shoot fireballs at Link. If they are close enough to the surface, Link can slash them with his sword, otherwise he can shoot a seed or use the boomerang to defeat them. Most the time you are better off just avoiding trying to defeat a river zora as it can be tedious to defeat them. River zora are rivals of the Zora that live in the ocean.  

  Rope  Rope
Threat:
Speed:
 - Slow, then Fast
 
Attacks:
  Contact
 
Defense Power:
 - 1 Hit
 
Rope
Description:
 - These snake enemies have appeared in a few Zelda games before and are known to charge on sight. Sometimes these enemies are dug up from the dirt thus giving you less reaction time to their quick movement. They are common enemies in dungeons and only take one swipe of your sword to defeat. They usually are great sources for spare rupees and recovery hearts, so defeat them whenever you get a chance.

 - Slow and Fast
 
Attacks:

Defense Power:
 - 1 Hit
 
Sand Crab
Description:
 - Sand crabs linger around a few places in crescent Island and they aren't too difficult at all. They randomly scuttle around at fast speeds, not provoked by them sighting you. Just run up and slash them once and it's over quickly.

 - These Stalfos are covered in cloaks and wander around dungeons either shooting arrows at you or wielding a sword. For the sword shrouded stalfos, just block when they come at you and strike when you get the chance. For the arrow-shooting ones, just guard against their arrows which are pretty well-aimed and then take them out with your sword.  

  Spark  Spark
Threat:
Speed:
 - Fast
 
Attacks:

Defense Power:
 - 1 Hit Boomerang
 
Spark
Description:
 - Sparks are tiny electrical enemies that can be very pesky as they usually appear in rooms with very little running space. They scroll along the edges of blocks and walls in a set path, so you don't have to worry about them chasing you. To defeat them hit them with the boomerang, which will leave them with a fairy in it's place.  

  Spiked Beetle  Spiked Beetle
Threat:
Speed:
 - Fast
 
Attacks:

Defense Power:
 - 1 Hit
 
Spiked Beetle

To do this, walk in front of a spinning blade and it this will trigger it to move in a path and it will continue moving along that path until it hits a barrier. Don't try to defeat these enemies, because just like the other blade traps, these guys are invincible. You can use roc's feather to jump over them in tough situations.

Thwomp
Description:
 - This enemy hangs in the air waiting to slam down upon the person that attempts to cross underneath it. Do not attempt to defeat this enemy, as it is pointless. To avoid it, simply walk towards it and run back, which will cause Thomp to come crash to the floor. As it retracts upwards, it goes much slower allowing you to run across.

Tile
Description:
 - Tiles are floor tiles that stick out from the rest of the room, and when you enter the room, they start flying at you one by one. You can defeat them by a simple slash of your sword as they draw near, or you can simply avoid them as they fly at you, causing them to break against the wall. They appear with other enemies in the room, so can be very tedious at times. One strategy is to stand at a side or corner of the room facing the tiles and just hold out your shield. The shield will break the tiles and will not cause Link harm.

Description:

Whenever they hit the ground they are vulnerable, but if you defeat them they keep coming back, making it impossible to get rid of them for good.

Wizzrobe Blue
Description:
 - Wizzrobe are common magic-using enemies in the Zelda series. These guys can float through walls and can't be hit while they are "invisible." It's best just to charge past them and don't even try to kill them. They shoot their magic beams in straight lines up, down, left or right. They never shoot diagonally, so standing on a diagonal from them and slashing away is a good way to limit your damage.

Wizzrobe Green
Description:
 - These Wizzrobe are a bit different than the others. They appear in the ground as little stubs sticking out of the ground and then materialize into the Wizzrobe itself and fire magic at you. These are by far the easiest version of the Wizzrobe. They always form in the same place but change positions when you leave and reenter the area again, though. Just stand diagonally from them and when they appear, slash away with your sword.
