Staldra are enemies that appear exclusively in Skyward Sword.


Skyward Sword


Target lock: Staldra

This is a snake monster from before
the dawn of time. Three bone-plated
heads and a thirst to cause pain keep
it writhing even beyond death.
My analysis shows that to defeat this
cursed snake, all three of its heads
must be simultaneously destroyed.

A Staldra is a Gleeok-like enemy with three heads. In order to defeat a Staldra, Link must use a single sword slash to attack all three heads simultaneously. If link only hits one or two of the heads, the decapitated heads will quickly grow back, restoring Staldra to full life.

Each of Staldra's eyes are of a greenish-blue color. However, when Link comes near, the eyes of Staldra will turn red, and it will dash forward, trying to attack Link. This can easily be avoided by taking a step back or utilizing your shield.

A spin attack when all three of Staldra's heads are parallel to the ground will make quick work of this enemy. A standard slash at the angle of the heads is also effective, but often more difficult.


  • Staldra's name is a portmanteau of "Stal-", referring to skeletal creatures in The Legend of Zelda series, and "Hydra", a mythical dragon with more than one head.
  • All Staldra's will always drop a single red Rupee upon its defeat.
