In General


Wallmasters are recurring enemies in The Legend of Zelda series. They are similar to Floormasters in appearance.

The Legend of Zelda


Wallmasters debut in The Legend of Zelda, where they are frequently found in dungeons, and will come through the wall attempting to grab Link. This will result in Link starting from the entrance of the dungeon.

A Link to the Past


Wallmasters first appear within Skull Woods, the third dungeon of the Dark World. Unlike their appearance from The Legend of Zelda, Wallmasters come from the ceiling instead of the wall. Initially, they appear hidden as if they are not in the room. However, a shadow will appear and a noise can be heard as the Wallmaster drops from the ceiling. The Wallmaster will attempt to drop down and grab Link. If it successfully does so, it will take Link back to the entrance of the dungeon. In Skull Woods, since there are multiple dungeon entrances, it will take Link back to where he last entered the dungeon.

A Wallmaster can be defeated with two strikes from Link's Master Sword. However, even if one is defeated, new Wallmasters will continuously drop from the ceiling. Since there is an endless amount of Wallmasters in any particular room they appear, there is little reason to defeat them. Instead, Link is better off just avoiding them when they fall from the ceiling.

Ocarina of Time


Watch out for its shadow on the
floor. Destroy it before it goes
back up to the ceiling!

In Ocarina of Time, Wallmasters once again hang from the ceiling and drop down on Link. A shadow and an ominous noise will signal their approach, as well as a brief comment from Navi upon entering the room that suggests that Link watch out for the monsters. They are first encountered in the Forest Temple and later appear in the Shadow Temple, Spirit Temple and Ganon's Castle.

Majora's Mask


It's a Wallmaster! Keep an eye
out for it by watching for its
shadow on the floor. Get it before
it goes back up to the ceiling.

Wallmasters appear in dark places, such as Beneath the Well, and act just as they do in Ocarina of Time.

Oracle of Seasons & Oracle of Ages

Wallmasters appear in Oracle of Seasons and Oracle of Ages, falling from the ceiling and trying to grab Link. If they grab Link, they will take him back to the entrance of the dungeon. In Oracle of Ages, Wallmasters appear in Spirit's Grave, where as in Oracle of Seasons, they appear in the Sword & Shield Maze and Hero's Cave.

The Minish Cap

In The Minish Cap, Wallmasters have very similar attributes as in prior Zelda titles. They first appear in the Fortress of Winds and Link can see where they will drop down by looking at their shadow. If they grab Link, he will be transported back to the beginning of the dungeon. If defeated, they will disappear permanently.

A Link Between Worlds

Wallmasters behave in a similar manner to that of A Link to the Past in that they come down from the ceiling, grab Link and take him back to the beginning of the dungeon. In this game, Wallmasters are used to activate switches on an unreachable platform above Link, allowing Link to progress. Wallmasters in this game can be found in Skull Woods and Lorule Castle.

Tri Force Heroes

Wallmasters only appear in certain Drablands Challenges. They act as focal points and obstacles in the eponymous Evade the Wallmaster! challenge, where they will attempt to slam down onto the Links, wiping out all Hearts with a successful strike. Unlike the gnarled or otherwise unsightly designs from previous games, these Wallmasters have a technological motif. Specifically, they uncannily resemble Sheikah technology introduced in Breath of the Wild; they even have a Sheikah eye on their dorsal side. In spite of all this, no Sheikah are known to appear in Tri Force Heroes, potentially explaining the Wallmasters' relegation to the enigmatic Drablands Challenges.

Non-Canon Appearances

This section describes a subject that is or may be outside the core Zelda canon.

The Faces of Evil

Wallmasters can be found in Harlequin Bazaar and Fortress Centrum. They appear in the background through small holes. They will reach their hand out of the hole in the wall and try to hit Link. They cannot be defeated and should be avoided whenever possible. Using Ropes to climb to higher ledges is the best way to stay away from these creatures.

The Wand of Gamelon

In this game, Wallmasters appear in Tykogi Tower and Dodomai Palace. They look like and act the same as in The Faces of Evil.
