Pincers are recurring enemies in The Legend of Zelda series. They are long, worm-like creatures with large fangs at the front of their bodies that they use to attack Link.

Appearances

Link's Awakening

Pincers hide in holes, waiting for prey. When Link is near, they will emerge from their hole and dart out at him before retreating.[1] Link must wait until the Pincer starts to come out of its hole, and then give it a quick slice with his sword.

Oracle of Ages and Oracle of Seasons

This enemy also can be found in both Holodrum and Labrynna. It look and act exactly the same way as they did in Link's Awakening.
