Beetles are recurring enemies in The Legend of Zelda series. They are small bugs that are found crawling out of holes in certain games.
These small bugs that are found crawling out of holes in Ukuku Prairie. They only appear on one screen, south of Kanalet Castle. They appear from a hole in the ground when Link gets close. They are very easy enemies to handle, and can be defeated with a single sword swipe. They will endlessly continue appearing from the hole until you leave this screen.
Oracle of Seasons and Oracle of Ages
In the Oracle games, Beetles appears when Link digs a hole using the Shovel. However, they do little damage to Link.
In Oracle of Seasons, the mini-boss of Snake's Remains, Facade, will cause Beetles to fall from the ceiling, which damage Link if he touches one. One attack with a sword is enough to do away with them.
