Peahats are one of the more common enemies in The Legend of Zelda series, as they have appeared in nearly every Zelda game to date. They resemble a flower-like creature that can fly using its leaves.

Appearances

The Legend of Zelda

Peahats can be found throughout the overworld in The Legend of Zelda. These enemies will spin around and move rapidly around the screen. While spinning Peahats cannot be harmed and should be avoided if possible. After spinning for a short while, a Peahat will come to a stop, in which it is vulnerable to sword attacks from Link.[1][2][3]

Link's Awakening

Ocarina of Time

Peahat
Its weak point is its roots!

Peahats in Ocarina of Time are stationary around Hyrule Field. When Link approaches one, it wakes up, and flys toward him, showing its roots. These roots are their weak points. Link can either slash with the Kokiri Sword or simply shoot it with the Slingshot. If Link wanders Hyrule Field at night, the Peahats do not wake up; however, if he slashes at one, it shoots out Peahat Larva, which can be destroyed just by holding out Link's shield.

Interestingly, Peahats only appear while Link is in his Young Link form; they do not exist anywhere in the adult world. Furthermore, no cause or reason is given for their disappearance; they simply disapear.

Majora's Mask

Don't tell me you don't know about
the Pea Hat! Just remember that
its root area is soft!

There is only one Peahat in Majora's Mask. And that is going to a hidden hole somewhere in the tall grass near the Southern Swamp and Milk Road in Termina Field. Going to this hole will reveal a Peahat with the same functions as the Peahat in Ocarina of Time. However, it is required to defeat this Peahat to get a Piece of Heart.

Oracle of Ages and Oracle of Seasons

Peahats in Oracle of Ages can be found in many locations. When Link enters the screen they are stationary, but then start spinning and flying. Link must wait until they stop moving, as they can only be damaged when they are not moving. It takes two strikes to defeat them with either the Wooden or Noble Sword. One strike will kill them from Master Sword.

The Wind Waker

Peahats are first encountered in the Forbidden Woods in The Wind Waker. Link must stun them with the Deku Leaf first, then damage them with the sword. Once more items like the Boomerang or Bow are obtained, Link can use those to kill the Peahats more easily.

The Minish Cap

There are two different varieties of Peahats found within The Minish Cap. The red ones are first encountered in the Eastern Hills and they share similar attributes to previous incarnations of the enemy. The green Peahats fly out of reach while carrying Bombs. When they attempt to drop the bomb on Link, the Peahat lowers itself to the ground temporarily. Once the Peahat lowers itself, it can be defeated by using the Gust Jar or the Bow. If Link uses arrows, the Peahat can be defeated with one arrow. If he uses the Gust Jar, Link can disable it, making it vulnerable to sword attacks, or he can suck the Peahat in and launch it, destroying it on impact.

Twilight Princess

Peahats in Twilight Princess act differently than other incarnations of Peahat. In this game, Peahats do not harm Link, but instead are used as Clawshot targets. Peahats only appear in the Gerudo Desert and the seventh dungeon of the game, the City in the Sky.

Skyward Sword

Target lock: Peahat

At first glance, this looks like any other
plant species, but the Peahat has a
unique ability to fly when the flower on
its top is pulled off with a whip.

In Skyward Sword, Peahats are not as much of an enemy, but instead are very similar to their Twilight Princess counterparts. They act as Clawshot targets, and are found within the Lanayru Desert region, in the Eldin Volcano region after it has erupted and is at normalcy, and when in Faron Woods when the woods are flooded. Because of the fact that they are moving Clawshot targets, it can be quite challenging to grab hold of them. The most difficult Peahats to latch on to are found in Skipper's Retreat, where, along with the constant moving, there are Furnixes there to made it even harder.
