Forests and Swamps of Western Hyrule


The Mobys are bird enemies from Zelda II: The Adventure of Link. The Mobys are Ganon's bird of prey similar to an eagle and live in the swamps and forests of South West Hyrule. They have orange plumage and a large hooked beak and they tend to travel in small groups. Upon spotting Link, they dive straight down from the sky and flying straight toward him at furious speed.[1][2][3]

They are easy enough to defeat, but Link loses 10 experience points in addition to health upon contact with them. Link must attack the Mobys with his Sword attack before it flies into him. Link gains 2 experience points for defeating a Moby.
