A Guay is a small bird that appears in multiple Zelda games. They usually come in flocks, and dive at Link's head to attack.


Ocarina of Time


Destroy it before it flies into

In Ocarina of Time, Guays only appear at the Desert Colossus, Lake Hylia, and Lon Lon Ranch during the nighttime. They infinitely respawn, but after a while a Big Guay will appear. It is just as easy to defeat as the other Guays, but it drops more Rupees when defeated.

Majora's Mask


It's a Guay. You don't know about
this one? Just attack it before it
swoops down on you. That's
all there is to it.

Majora's Mask's Guays are similar in look to the ones in Ocarina of Time: purplish bodies and orange beaks. They mostly appear in trees; however, there is a single Guay that circles Clock Town in Termina Field, but it does not attack. If Link plays a certain song with a certain mask on, it will drop Rupees for him. Guays can also be found near the pond in Snowhead region during spring, and also in Ikana Canyon.

Twilight Princess

Guays take on a different appearance in Twilight Princess, looking more like an actual bird and having more of a twisted enemy design. They resemble a vulture and have bright blue eyes. They usually attack in flocks, but can also be seen by themselves. If Link defeats an entire flock of Guays, they will drop a sum of Rupees.

Skyward Sword


Target lock: Guay

This bird seemingly jettisons its
droppings upon people's heads on
purpose. It is unclear if this is due to a
carefree attitude or pure malice.
Should its droppings land on you,
I calculate the probability of your
intense aggravation at 100%.

In Skyward Sword, these small bird-like enemies will dive-bomb Link if they spot him. They also have a secondary ability to drop feces upon Link's head. This creates a noxious yellow cloud that will drain hearts until he shakes it off. When the Guay is defeated, it will drop 5 or 20 Rupees.
