Poes are ghosts that can be quite a hazard to Link. They sometimes appear and disappear at will, making them difficult to defeat. Two notable Poes are Sharp and Flat.


A Link to the Past


Poes are grim reaper-type enemies that only appear in the Graveyard. They are found in the Light World, flying around the various gravestones. They require many hits with a weapon to defeat.

Ocarina of Time

If you stare at it with (Z)
Targeting, it will disappear...

Ocarina of Time's Poes disappear when Link gets too close. On top of that, they can go through walls. Link must catch ten Big Poes and bring them to the Ghost Shop to get the fourth Bottle in this game. He must defeat four Poe Sisters as well to finish the Forest Temple. Sharp and Flat first appear in this game.

Majora's Mask


What?! You don't know about the
Poe? If you try to use Z
Targeting, it vanishes.

Poes don't appear as much in Majora's Mask, but are the same as in Ocarina of Time. Sharp and Flat appear in this game as well.

The Wind Waker

In The Wind Waker, Poes appear numerous times throughout the game. These ghosts can only be defeated by shining light on them and then hitting them with a weapon. Jalhalla, the boss of the Earth Temple, is actually an aggregation of Poes.

Twilight Princess

Main article: Imp Poe

Twilight Princess Poes are called Imp Poes and might seem more creepy. They are a collectible in the game and by turning in Poes to Jovani, Link receives various awards. Link must also kill four Big Poes in order to complete the Arbiter's Grounds.

Phantom Hourglass

In Phantom Hourglass, Poes can be found on the Ghost Ship. Their appearance is significantly different from Poes in prior games. Their only true attack is spitting a blue fireball towards Link.
