Cowardly by nature, it sits with its eyes just above the surface in order to detect any danger and flee if necessary.

Spumes are a common enemy that appear in Skyward Sword. They shoot projectiles at Link that, unlike those of Octoroks, cannot be reflected with the Shield. Because Spumes appear in pools of lava or quicksand, they cannot be defeated with Sword attacks. The only way to defeat them is to use projectiles, such as Arrows, Bombs, or a Skyward Strike.


Magma Spume

Main article: Magma Spume

Magma Spumes can be found swimming in pools of lava. They hop up from the lava to spit out fireballs toward Link that can destroy Link's Wooden Shield. Link can use the Sword or Shield to hit the fireballs, causing them to dissipate. Since Magma Spumes are found in lava, Link cannot use the Sword to defeat them; instead, he has to rely on Bombs and projectile weapons such as the Bow and Arrow. Link can also use the stone balls to roll over and crush them.

Cursed Spume

Main article: Cursed Spume

The Cursed Spume is extremely similar to the Magma Spume, but instead spits curses. If the curse hits Link, he is unable to use any item for a limited time, similar to the effects of Bubbles in many games. Like all other variants, Link must use a projectile or a Bomb to defeat them.

These appear only after Link has completed the first three dungeons.

Electro Spume

Main article: Electro Spume

The Electro Spume is the same as the other two types of Spume, but differ due to them spitting electrically charged balls at Link, which can destroy Link's Iron Shield. Link must use a projectile or a Bomb to defeat them.

These appear in Lanayru Desert, and other areas with quicksand.

Water Spume

Main article: Water Spume

The Water Spume can only be found in Lanayru Sand Sea. They can be defeated by a single blast from the Cannon or by simply driving over them.
