Target lock: Staldra
Staldra are enemies that appear exclusively in Skyward Sword.
Staldra is a Gleeok-like enemy with three heads. In order to defeat a Staldra, Link must use a single sword slash to attack all three heads simultaneously. If Link only hits one or two of the heads, the decapitated heads quickly grow back, restoring Staldra to full life.
Each of Staldra's eyes are of a greenish-blue color. However, when Link comes near, the eyes of Staldra turn red, and it dashes forward, trying to attack Link. This can easily be avoided by taking a step back or utilizing Link's Shield.
A Spin Attack when all three of Staldra's heads are parallel to the ground quickly defeats this enemy. A standard slash at the angle of the heads is also effective, but often more difficult.
- Staldra's name is a portmanteau of "Stal-", referring to skeletal creatures in The Legend of Zelda series, and "Hydra", a mythical dragon with more than one head.
