'''Skulltula''' are spider-like creatures that have appeared in many ''[[The Legend of Zelda (Series)|Zelda]]'' games. They return in ''[[The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword|Skyward Sword]]'' and look similar to those in ''[[The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess|Twilight Princess]]''.

Skulltulas are some of the first enemies that appear in the game, found [[Inside the Deku Tree]]. Although very limited in movement, they pose quite the obstacle and are awkward to defeat. If you attack their front side, it will make them rock back and forth and potentially hit you. Only their backside is vulnerable, so wait until they turn around and strike them with your weapon of choice. Later on, you can use the Hookshot or Longshot to kill them in one hit from either side.

Skullwalltula is the first variant. It is a small, white spider that crawls on vines. They can be taken out with the [[sword]], but most of the time they will be beyond your sword's reach. The best way for [[Link]] to defeat them is with a ranged weapon, such as the [[Slingshot]] or [[Fairy Bow]]. Should Link try to climb on the vines without killing the Skulltula first, it will see him and charge, causing Link to fall back to the ground.

The Big Skulltula is a large spider that hangs down from the ceiling. It will spin from its armored front to its exposed underside and back every few seconds. There are multiple methods of defeating a Skulltula. As a child, Link should wait for it to reveal its back side and either rush in with a sword attack or shoot it with his [[Slingshot]]. As an adult, Link has more powerful weapons, so he can shoot them with the Bow or [[Hookshot]] while facing their armored side.

The third variant is the Gold Skulltula. There is an entire side quest dedicated to them where Link hunts down the Gold Skulltulas to free the [[Fabulously Rich Family]] that lives in the [[House of Skulltula]] in [[Kakariko Village]]. When Link kills a Gold Skulltula, he will get a [[Gold Skulltula Token]]. When Link gets a certain amount of tokens, (10, 20, 30, 40, 50, and 100 tokens) the curse will be broken on one more family member, and Link will be awarded with a prize ([[Adult Wallet]], [[Stone of Agony|Stone]]/[[Shard of Agony|Shard]] of Agony, [[Giant's Wallet]], [[Bombchu]]s, [[Piece of Heart]], Unlimited [[Rupee]]s respectively).

In ''[[The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask|Majora's Mask]]'', Skulltulas have the ability to perform a spin attack which can damage Link. They do not take damage when struck from the front side by the Hookshot like ''[[The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time|Ocarina of Time]]'', but the [[Hero's Bow|Bow]] is still effective in eliminating them.

Gold Skulltulas return in ''Majora's Mask'', but they are no longer spread out across the entire land. There are two Skulltula Houses, located in the [[Southern Swamp]] and in [[Great Bay Coast]], that contain 30 Gold Skulltulas each. Collecting all 30 in a house frees someone from a curse, and this person gives Link a reward. The [[Mask of Truth]] is found in the [[Swamp Spider House]] in the Southern Swamp, and the [[Giant's Wallet]] (on the First Day) and a Piece of Heart (on the Second and Final Day) are found in the [[Oceanside Spider House]] in the Great Bay Coast.

Skulltulas have similar properties to their ancestors of ''Ocarina of Time'' and ''Majora's Mask'' in ''[[The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess|Twilight Princess]]'', with a shielded front side and vulnerable back side. However, they walk around on their own after being targeted or touched. Afterwards, they charge at Link until close enough to strike. If struck directly, Skulltulas typically deflect the attack, giving off a blue spark on contact; although, if attacked at the right time, they give a red spark, signifying a successful hit. Strategies on this enemy include: rolling around and attacking the back side, deflecting a bite attack and striking, or thrusting while they charge up an attack. Using the [[Gale Boomerang]] can be effective, as it momentarily stuns the Skulltula. These enemies can be found in the [[Forest Temple (Twilight Princess)|Forest Temple]], as well as in various locations across [[Hyrule Field]], specifically cavernous areas.

In ''[[The Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass|Phantom Hourglass]]'', Skulltulas are found around the [[Ghost Ship (Phantom Hourglass)|Ghost Ship]]. They drop down from the ceiling and block Link's path. If Link escorts a [[Cubus Sisters|Cubus Sister]] and gets close enough to the Skulltula for the Cubus Sister to see it, she starts to scream. If there is a [[Reapling]] on the same floor, it immediately goes to where the Cubus Sister screamed. To get rid of them, Link must attack them with any of his weapons.

Skulltulas appear very much like their ''Twilight Princess'' predecessors. They inhabit the two dungeons in [[Faron Province]]: [[Skyview Temple]] and [[Ancient Cistern]]. They are spider-like creatures with eight legs whose main attack is to dash its body towards Link. Skulltulas appear in several different ways. Some drop down from the ceiling, others are hanging from a string, while some have full blown spider webs created to block Link's path. Link can knock down a Skulltula by breaking its string or spider web with the [[Beetle (Item)|Beetle]]. Before Link obtains the Beetle, he must whack a hanging Skulltula until they spin around, revealing their weak spots.

+
Once a Skulltula is on the ground, Link can use his sword techniques to harm it. Once Link has sliced it with a sword attack, the Skulltula stands on its back legs, revealing its weak spot. Link can then stab the large purple jewel on its stomach to defeat the Skulltula. Alternatively, Link can flip it over by performing a [[Skyward Strike]]. At this point, Link can jump and deliver a [[Fatal Blow]], stabbing right through its weak point.
