Walltulas are enemies found in recent The Legend of Zelda games. They cling to vines and ram Link if they see him while he climbs the vines. They are easily defeated with many ranged weapons, including the Boomerang, Slingshot, Bow, and Clawshot.

Appearances

Twilight Princess

In Twilight Princess, Walltulas make their first of two appearances. They are small spiders that hang around vines. Because of this, they are only found in foresty areas, where there are vines to be found. They are found in Ordon Village, the Forest Temple, and in the City in the Sky. They are unable to be hit with Link's Sword, as coming close to them results in the Walltula attempting to bite Link,[1] which knocks him off the vines. However, they can be defeated with any projectile weapon, including the Slingshot,[2] Bow and Arrow, or Clawshot. It only takes one hit to defeat them.[3]

They seem to have a skull on on their back, which could symbolize their close affiliation with Skulltulas. They move around a little bit and sometimes pause, making a perfect moment for Link to shoot them. If they see Link climbing up, they run into him, knocking him down.

Walltulas are one of the very first enemies encountered in Twilight Princess. Directly after purchasing the Slingshot from Sera's Sundries in Ordon Village, a Walltula can be found on the ladder that leads up to Link's House.

Target lock: Walltula

Found mostly in ivy and on walls, you
can expect this creature to approach
when it senses your presence.

The beast lives on other creatures'
bodily fluids. A fully grown Walltula
is several orders of magnitude more
dangerous than a young Walltula.

Walltulas make their second and most recent appearance in Skyward Sword. They are small spiders that can be found crawling on vines. Their backs have a skull-like image, which suggests they are a part of the Skulltula family. Since they are found on walls and vines, they cannot be defeated using the Sword. Instead, Link must use a projectile weapon such as the Slingshot or Bow and Arrow. These enemies are generally found in the Faron Woods area, including the Skyview Temple, as that is where Link is most likely to find vines.

According to Fi, Walltulas live on other creatures' bodily fluids.[4] Fi also mentions that fully grown Walltulas are much more dangerous than young Walltulas,[4] suggesting that the Skulltulas found in Skyward Sword are simply fully grown Walltulas.

Trivia

  • There is a hidden Walltula in Twilight Princess that is very difficult to defeat. After purchasing the Slingshot from Sera's Sundries, a Walltula appears on the trunk of the gigantic tree that stands above Link's House, on the left side of the trunk. This Walltula is so faraway that only a perfect shot gets it. When it is defeated, it lands and vanishes on the other side, making any Rupees it dropped inaccessible.
  • Walltulas and Skullwalltulas are very similar. However, Skullwalltula's bodies are in the shape of a skull, whereas Walltula's bodies look more like that of the real world spider.
