Miniblins are common enemies, members of the Goblin race, from recent Zelda installments. They run around almost aimlessly trying to attack Link with their spears, pitchforks, and other various weapons. They're usually seen in hordes or packs, and are found in almost every dungeon.

These little creatures like to poke you with little trident-like weapons, and aren't very much of a threat, but they are very annoying. Following a stab at Link, the Miniblin will guffaw allowing Link to strike back and defeat it. The All-Purpose Bait distracts the Miniblins as they swarm around it, allowing Link to escape and proceed freely. The most effective methods to dispatch of Miniblins are through the Spin Attack, Hurricane Spin, or Skull Hammer.
Much like the Miniblins in The Wind Waker, these creatures are more of an annoyance than a threat. They can be found almost everywhere, but mostly on the Isle of Gust. Defeating a group of Miniblins will conjure a Red Rupee. Sporadically, they will board the S.S. Linebeck. Defeating them will generate a random amount of rupees.
The Miniblins are at their most cunning in Spirit Tracks. They attack Link's Spirit Train in Tanks and Cannon Boats. During one occurrence, when Link is transporting Carben to the Ocean Sanctuary, Miniblins board his Spirit Train initiating a duel with a Big Blin as their leader. Occasionally, Miniblins are seen on top of Armos. This is most common in the Tower of Spirits. A mini-game in the Pirate Hideout revolved around dispatching the maximum number of Miniblins in the allotted time.
