The '''Moa''' is a flying eyeball-like creature in ''[[Zelda II: The Adventure of Link|The Adventure of Link]]''. They typically fly either back and forth, or in a swooping fashion. Every time a Moa collides with Link, he loses not only a moderately large amount of health, but also a few experience points.<ref>{{cite web|quote= Moa are large disconnected eyeballs who are mysteriously able to fly through the air.

The '''Fire Moas''' are orange Moas that worth 100 experience points for killing; they are found mostly in dungeons and drop fireballs as they pass overhead.

The '''Purple Moas''' are invisible, and can only be seen by finding the [[Cross]].<ref>{{cite manual|quote=A ghost that flies over the graveyard. You can't see all of them unless you have a cross.|game=''Adventure of Link|page=29}}</ref>

{{Cat|Enemies}}
*The [[Girubokku]] enemies from the same game greatly resemble Moas in being giant floating eyeballs. However, they fight rather differently, traveling around the screen for a short distance before opening their single great eye, which is [[Link]]'s only opening to attack.
