Grey Ball and Chain Soldier

The Grey Ball and Chain Soldier is a variant of the Ball and Chain Soldier, found in A Link to the Past, A Link Between Worlds and Tri Force Heroes.[1]

A Link to the Past

In A Link to the Past, the enemy is known as a Ball and Chain Trooper and is encountered within the dungeon of Hyrule Castle. The trooper has a ball and chain that it will spin around and launch towards Link. Link can defeat the enemy by using his Fighter's Sword or by tossing nearby Pots at the enemy. Alternatively, Link can also use his Boomerang to temporarily stun the enemy, allowing him to get a sword slash in. When defeated, the trooper will drop a Big Key, which can be used to open the nearby cell and free Princess Zelda.

A Link Between Worlds

Ball and Chain Soldiers are first encountered within the upper floors of Hyrule Castle. They appear like their predecessors from A Link to the Past, in which they whip around a large ball and chain. Link can quickly run in and deliver a sword slash to attack the enemy, or use a long-range weapon to prevent taking damage. These enemies later appear within the Treacherous Tower.

Tri Force Heroes

In Tri Force Heroes, the Ball and Chain Soldier has a very similar appearance to their A Link Between Worlds counterparts.
