Being washed up on the shores of Koholint Island, Sea Urchins are only found along the beaches in the southwest corner of the island and they are extremely easy enemies to avoid. They lie stationary on the ground and the only way Link can take damage from one is if he walks into it. They are also very weak, and will die with one slash of Link's sword. To get past an urchin, Link can either push it away with his Shield or simply kill it with his Sword.
