Like Likes are an enemy featured in nearly every The Legend of Zelda title and first introduced in The Legend of Zelda. In certain games, they attempt to suck up Link and will eat any unique equipment he is holding at the time, including tunics and shields. If he's fast enough, Link's equipment is returned if it is killed.

Appearances

The Legend of Zelda

In The Legend of Zelda, Like Likes will swallow Link, and if he's not quick enough to defeat them, they'll eat his Magical Shield.

A Link to the Past

Like Likes appear only in the Game Boy Advance re-release version of A Link to the Past.

Link's Awakening

Like Likes in Link's Awakening will use all their might to swallow Link. If the Like Like is successful, it was eat Link's Shield, forcing him to buy a new shield as a replacement. The only shield Like Likes cannot eat, is the Mirror Shield.

An enemy that eats shields and

to get your gear back!

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

Like Likes cannot eat the Mirror Shield or the Kokiri Tunic.

You know about the Like Like,
right? It eats whatever you're
carrying. You'd better defeat it if
you want your stuff back.

Oracle of Ages and Oracle of Seasons

The Minish Cap

Like Likes in The Minish Cap, act the same as they have in previous installments. Rupee Likes make their debut in this game. Instead of eating Link's shield, they'll eat his Rupees.

Phantom Hourglass

Like Likes and Rupee Likes can be found in various places and dungeons within Phantom Hourglass. Like Likes will swallow Link and eat his shield, while Rupee Likes will swallow Link and eat his rupees. The only way to prevent this from occurring is to rub the screen on the Nintendo DS rapidly.

Spirit Tracks

Like Likes in The Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks act almost identically to those in previous installments. They'll still eat Link's shield, but they are unable to eat the Shield of Antiquity. Sometimes Like Likes will disguise themselves as pots or treasure chests, making a surprise attack on Link very likely.

A Link Between Worlds

Like in previous installments, Like Likes in A Link Between Worlds swallow Link on contact. After being swallowed, the Like Like damages him and eats Link's shield if it is not the Hylian Shield. To escape, the player needs to press buttons before the Like Like spits Link out. Rupee Likes make an appearance in A Link Between Worlds, also.
