Spinuts are enemies from The Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks.
Spinuts are squirrel-like enemies found within Spirit Tracks 's dungeons. They attack by ramming into Link, very similarly to an recurring enemy in the Mario series, the Goombas. The green version of this enemy is tougher than the red version. Such an enemy can be found in the Tower of Spirits. It's typically very cowardly, causing Link and Zelda to chase it and retrieve the key it is holding.
