Breathing Ice

Snowpeak Ruins
Cave of Ordeals


Freezards are frozen enemies made primarily out of ice, and have made their appearance in Ocarina of Time, Majora's Mask, and Twilight Princess.


Ocarina of Time


Watch out for its freezing
breath! Destroy it completely
before it revives.

In Ocarina of Time, Link finds Freezards exclusively within the Ice Cavern. Link can either use his Sword to kill them or to simply evade them entirely. They appear as large pieces of ice that blow an icy breath. This icy breath has the ability to freeze Link[1], making him slowly lose hearts the longer he is frozen.[2] At the time Link is fighting these enemies, the best way to defeat them is to use Din's Fire or to just use his Sword.

Majora's Mask


Don't tell me you don't know about
the Freezard! Watch out for its
icy breath! I hate the c-c-cold!

In Majora's Mask, Freezards appear exclusively within the Snowhead Temple and they are exactly the same as in Ocarina of Time.

Twilight Princess

In Twilight Princess, Freezards appear mostly in the Snowpeak Ruins; however, they can also be found in a few of the small caves around throughout Hyrule, which includes the Cave of Ordeals. Freezards in Twilight Princess are much larger than their Ocarina of Time and Majora's Mask counterparts.

This time around the Freezard is no longer vulnerable to Link's sword and instead, he will need to use the Ball and Chain to defeat them. It will take two direct hits with the Ball and Chain to defeat the enemy. After a Freezard has been defeated, it splits into four to five Mini-Freezards. Alternatively, Link can kill a Freezard by utilizing the multiple Cannons that can be found in the Snowpeak Ruins. Freezards act more like an obstacle rather than an enemy as most of the time, they are stationary and are used to block doorways.

Spirit Tracks

While larger Freezard do not make an appearance in Spirit Tracks there are similar Mini-Freezard that appear as they did in Twilight Princess.
