In General

""Shield-eaters and world leaders have many likes alike.""

Like Likes are recurring enemies in The Legend of Zelda series. In certain games, they attempt to suck up Link and will eat any unique equipment he is holding at the time, including Tunics and Shields. If Link is fast enough, his equipment is returned if it is defeated.

The Legend of Zelda

In The Legend of Zelda, Like Likes will swallow Link, and if he is not quick enough to defeat them, they will eat his Magical Shield.

A Link to the Past

Like Likes appear only in the Game Boy Advance re-release version of A Link to the Past.

Link's Awakening

Like Likes in Link's Awakening can once again swallow Link. If the Like Like is successful, it will eat Link's Shield, forcing him to purchase a new shield from the Town Tool Shop as a replacement, or win one at the Trendy Game. The only shield Like Likes cannot eat is the Mirror Shield.

Ocarina of Time


Like Like
An enemy that eats shields and
certain clothes. Beat it quickly
to get your gear back!

Like Likes are always hungry. If Link gets too close, they will reach out towards him (making their front side invulnerable) and suck him in. If they do manage to get Link, they will steal his shield and any special tunics he is wearing. If Link does not defeat them fast enough after that, they will digest them completely. Slash them between their attacks while they are vulnerable as quick as possible.

Like Likes cannot eat the Mirror Shield or the Kokiri Tunic.

You know about the Like Like,
right? It eats whatever you're
carrying. You'd better defeat it if
you want your stuff back.

The Minish Cap

Like Likes in The Minish Cap act the same as they have in previous installments. Rupee Likes make their debut in this game. Instead of eating Link's shield, they will eat his Rupees.

Amongst the top three books of the week in the Royal Hyrule Library is Learn to Like Your Like Like: A Good Guide to A Bad Pet. No details about this rather odd tome are ever given.

Phantom Hourglass

Like Likes and Rupee Likes can be found in various places and dungeons in Phantom Hourglass. Like Likes will swallow Link and eat his shield, while Rupee Likes will swallow Link and eat his Rupees. The only way to prevent this from occurring is to rub the screen on the Nintendo DS rapidly.

Spirit Tracks

Like Likes in Spirit Tracks act almost identically to those in previous installments. They will still eat Link's shield, but they are unable to eat the Shield of Antiquity. Sometimes, Like Likes will disguise themselves as pots or treasure chests, making a surprise attack on Link very likely.

A Link Between Worlds

Like in previous installments, Like Likes in A Link Between Worlds swallow Link on contact. After being swallowed, the Like Like damages him and eats Link's shield if it is not the Hylian Shield. To escape, the player needs to press buttons before the Like Like spits Link out. Rupee Likes also make an appearance in the game.

"A monster that has been appearing all over Hyrule in recent days. Found dwelling in caves and other dark places. It has an appetite for swords and shields. If you get too close, it may lunge at you with its mouth wide, swallow you whole, and eat your equipment. The tongue in the center of its mouth is very sensitive. Attack it to make the creature falter."

— In-game description

Like Likes have a drastically different appearance in Tears of the Kingdom. They are stationary, attached to a nearby ceiling or wall. Unlike in previous games, equipment stolen by Like Likes can always be re-obtained upon defeating them. When approached, they will expand their long body length in order to attack. Their mouths are normally closed, but the monster will open them shortly before attacking, exposing their tongue that functions as their only weakpoint. Attacking the tongue will damage them and stun them for several seconds, allowing for follow-up attacks.

After being defeated, a Like Like will drop a Like Like Stone, which can be used for elixirs. They will usually also drop a Treasure Chest containing a weapon.

Along with their standard variant, Fire Likes, Ice Likes, Shock Likes, and Rock Likes also appear in Tears of the Kingdom.
