Pikit are plant-like enemies that appear in A Link to the Past.Link journeys into the Dark World. They will hop around and when Link draws near, they will extend their tongue out towards him, trying to steal items from him. The Pikit can steal Rupees, Bombs, Arrows, and even Link's Fighter's Shield and Fire Shield. If a Pikit steals an item from Link, Link will have an opportunity to get it back. Link will need to defeat the Pikit before the Pikit steals an additional item. Once the Pikit steals the second item, the first item will be lost forever.
Despite the Pikit's ability to steal items from Link, the tongue attack will not do any damage to Link. However, if the Pikit does hop towards Link and comes into contact with him, two full hearts of damage will be done. Link is able to defeat a Pikit with three slashes from the Master Sword.
