Location

Spiked Beetles are small spiked enemies that appear in multiple titles in the Legend of Zelda Series.

Appearances

Link's Awakening

These beetles have four spikes protecting the top of their bodies. They will move around the room slowly and dart towards Link if he is nearby. Be sure to have the shield equipped when fighting Spiked Beetles. Hold out the shield and let them run at Link. When they hit the shield, they will bounce back and flip upside-down. Once flipped they are easily defeated with a few sword swipes.

Oracle of Ages and Seasons
