Spear Soldiers are sub-types of Soldiers that appear in The Legend of Zelda series. More fierce than the Sword Soldier, these enemies come in multiple variations, which is designated by the color of their armor.
The biggest difference between Spear Soldiers and Sword Soldiers, is that Spear Soldiers do twice as much damage. This includes being attacked by the spear, or simply coming into contact with any part of the Spear Soldiers body.
Green Spear Soldier
Since these are the weakest of the Spear Soldiers, just two sword slashes with the Fighter's Sword to defeat these enemies.
Red Spear Soldier
After Link has defeated Agahnim for the first time and traveled to the Dark World, Red Spear Soldiers start appearing throughout the Light World. In particular, they are found within Kakariko Village and the Great Swamp.
