Overworld

Armos-LoZ-Sprite.png ArmosArmos are statues scattered mostly throughout the mountains of Hyrule. They remain sedentary until touched, but once touched, they will begin to move around the screen at one of two speeds. It is impossible to tell at which speed they will move until they've been touched. Beneath them, it is possible to find hidden shops or secret rupees. They pose little threat, as they only do one half-heart of damage.

"A soldier who has been turned into a stone statue. He moves and attacks if touched by Link. He has a fair amount of attacking power."

"These rocks crumble off Death Mountain and fall down to attack Link. He can't destroy these natural nuisances."

Lynel-LoZ-Sprite-Red.png Lynel (Red)Red Lynels appear around Death Mountain, and can shoot sword beams similar to Link's. Theses sword beams can only be blocked with the Magical Shield.Their attacks do significant damage, and fighting them is made even harder by their long range and speed. Fight them using Link's sword, and they will usually drop either a heart or a fairy.

"The guardian who attacks all those who come near Death Mountain. Watch out! He's pretty strong, and Link's little shield can't stop his sword."

They shoot fireballs at Link that can only be deflected with the Magical Shield, and then go underwater. The easiest way to defeat them is to have full health and use sword beams. Otherwise, it is optimal to just avoid their attacks.

Bubble-Red-LoZ-Sprite.png Bubble (Red)Red Bubbles are only found in the Second Quest. They are impossible to kill, and they float around the room ricocheting off of walls. If Link is hit by one, he loses the ability to use his sword until he is hit by a Blue Bubble, drinks a potion or visits a fairy fountain. They do no damage, but are still a major annoyance.

"The spirit of the dead. When it clings onto Link, he won't be able to unsheath his sword for a while."

If Link touches a Red Bubble, he must touch a Blue Bubble before he is able to use his sword again. Although they do no damage, they cannot be killed, and create a major inconvenience, so they are better off avoided.

Patra-LoZ-Sprite.png PatraPatras are difficult enemies found only at the very end of the game.
