    S = Sword
    M = Magic Powder
    H = Hookshot
    R = Magic Rod
    P = Power Bracelet
    B = Bomb
    A = Arrows
    
    NOTE: I am NOT mentioning the Boomerang as a weapon to use in this section
          because it can defeat almost every enemy instantly. The ones it can't
          should be obvious.

    Armos
        Effective Weapons/Items: B, A
        Description: This statue, seemingly lifeless, comes to life when you
                     touch it. You can get past it without awakening it by
                     holding your shield in front of you and walk into the
                     statue; it'll just bounce off your shield without coming
                     alive!
    
    Beetle
        Effective Weapons/Items: S, H, M, R, B, A
        Description: These small bugs that are found crawling out of holes in
                     Ukuku Prairie. They are very easy to defeat, so the Beetle
                     is definitely NOT an enemy to worry about!
    
    Bomber
        Effective Weapons/Items: S, M, R, A
        Description: These annoying winged mushrooms drop bombs on you. They
                     usually fly away when you get close and attempt to attack
                     with your sword, so use a long distance weapon to take it
                     out!
    
    Buzz Blob
        Effective Weapons/Items: H, M, R, B, A
        Description: This creature looks harmless from the outside, but he
                     delivers a powerful jolt if you attack it directly! Avoid
                     its shock attack by hitting it with anything else EXCEPT the
                     Sword. You could also use Magic Powder on this enemy to turn
                     it into Cukeman.
    
    Crow
        Effective Weapons/Items: S, H, R, B, A
        Description: This black bird is only found in 2 parts of the game: in
                     Tabahl Wasteland and just inside the outside walls of
                     Kanalet Castle. It is very easy to beat when you do
                     encounter it, though.
    
    Cukeman
        Effective Weapons/Items: H, R, B, A
        Description: This walking blob can be considered both a bad guy and a
                     good guy in a way. The good part is that if you go up to and
                     talk to it, it will talk, but whatever it says doesn't make
                     sense! The bad part is if you hit it with your sword, it'll
                     shock you just like the Buzz Blob.
    
    Fish
        Effective Weapons/Items: S, H, M, R, B, A
        Description: This fish inhabits the Goponga Swamp. All it does is swim
                     just below the surface of the murky swamp and jump out of
                     the water every now and then. You can just beat it by
                     attacking when it's above the surface.
    
    Flying Octorok
        Effective Weapons/Items: S, H, M, R, B, A
        Description: This is a winged version of the regular Octorok. It attacks
                     by spitting rocks from its mouth at you. If you go and try
                     to attack it with your sword, it'll fly to another location
                     and spit rocks at you! Defeat it by using the Spinning Sword
                     Attack or with a long distance weapon.
    
    Ghost
        Effective Weapons/Items: S, H, R, B, A
        Description: This specter is only found in the cemetery, and it only
                     appears when you touch a tombstone. Defeat them with a bunch
                     of blows from your sword or another one of your weapons.
    
    Giant Ghini
        Effective Weapons/Items: S, H, R, B, A
        Description: As its name implies, it's a larger version of the Ghost.
                     Luckily, it only appears from one tombstone in the entire
                     cemetery! Defeat it like you did the Ghost and a Fairy will
                     appear as a reward.
    
    Giant Goponga Flower
        Effective Weapons/Items: H, R
        Description: This is an oversized swamp-dwelling flower that shoots small
                     balls at you to attack. You can't harm it directly, but
                     BowWow can eat it! When you don't have BowWow anymore, use
                     the Magic Rod or the Hookshot to defeat it.
    
    Goponga Flower
        Effective Weapons/Items: H, R
        Description: Like its larger counterpart, this flower cannot be harmed
                     directly by most weapons. Have BowWow eat these flowers when
                     you have him or just use the Hookshot or Magic Rod to beat
                     them.
    
    Leever
        Effective Weapons/Items: S, H, M, R, B, A
        Description: This creature, mainly found in the desert, lives in the
                     ground, but comes to the surface to attack. You can just
                     defeat it with a couple hits from your sword.
    
    Like Like
        Effective Weapons/Items: S, H, M, R, B, A
        Description: This moving sponge-like creature is really annoying,
                     especially when it swallows you whole! If you have your
                     shield equipped when it swallows you, it'll take it from
                     you! You can get it back by defeating the Like Like, though.
    
    Mad Bomber
        Effective Weapons/Items: S, R, A
        Description: This enemy is only found inside the outside walls of Kanalet
                     Castle. They pop out of a hole, then throw a bomb at you,
                     which quickly detonates, then retreat into the hole. They
                     then reappear in a different hole and repeat the same
                     process. Hit them when they pop their heads out of the hole
                     before they throw their bombs.
    
    Monkey
        Effective Weapons/Items: N/A
        Description: This monkey sits in a tree at Toronbo Shores and throws
                     coconuts down at you! You can't hurt this animal, but you
                     can destroy the coconuts he throws. You can knock it out of
                     the tree it's in by ramming the tree with the Pegasus Boots.
    
    Mutt
        Effective Weapons/Items: S, H, M, R, B, A
        Description: This dog can be found around Mabe Village. They are of no
                     harm to you unless you attack it first. Then, it lunges at
                     you to attack! Simply don't harm it if you don't want to get
                     harmed!
    
    Octorok
        Effective Weapons/Items: S, H, M, R, B, A
        Description: This octopus-like enemy crawls along the ground and spits
                     out rocks from its mouth. Just hit it once with your sword
                     to defeat it.
    
    Pig Warrior
        Effective Weapons/Items: S, H, M, R, B, A
        Description: These hogs come equipped with a sword and shield. You can
                     defeat them easily with your own sword or another weapon in
                     your arsenal!
    
    Pincer
        Effective Weapons/Items: S, H, M, R, B, A
        Description: These centipede creatures are found in holes throughout
                     Ukuku Prairie. When you walk near a hole they're in, you'll
                     see their eyes in the blackness, then they'll pop out and
                     hit you unless you move quickly! Just hit their head when it
                     comes out with your weapon. You can also use Magic Powder to
                     stun them, then attack!
    
    Pokey
        Effective Weapons/Items: S, H, M, R, B, A
        Description: This moving cactus enemy is only found in the Yarna Desert.
                     If you hit it with your sword, a part of it will ricochet
                     around the area and eventually disappear. Keep attacking it
                     until you defeat it.
    
    Raven
        Effective Weapons/Items: S, H, R, B, A
        Description: This type of bird is smaller than the Crow, but it can only
                     be found in the Tal Tal Mountains. When you pass it by,
                     it'll fly after you, so defeat it from far away so it
                     doesn't get a chance to do that!
    
    Sand Crab
        Effective Weapons/Items: S, H, M, R, B, A
        Description: This crab is only found near the shore, just as its name
                     implies. It moves slowly up and down, but can go quicker
                     left and right. Just put an end to it quickly with any of
                     your weapons.
    
    Sea Urchin
        Effective Weapons/Items: S, H, M, R, B, A
        Description: This urchin is only found near the shore areas. You can
                     easily defeat it with any of your weapons. You can also push
                     it with your shield by holding your shield in front of you
                     and walking into it.
    
    Soldier
        Effective Weapons/Items: S, H, M, R, B, A
        Description: These armored soldiers are only found inside the walls of
                     Kanalet Castle. It isn't very strong, so you can just hit it
                     a couple times with your sword to defeat it.
    
    Spiny Beetle
        Effective Weapons/Items: S, H, M, R, B, A
        Description: This beetle is usually well-hidden under objects, such as
                     bushes or stones. When you walk past, it'll run after you.
                     Just defeat it by lifting up whatever it's under with the
                     Power Bracelet, then attacking it with your weapons.
    
    Sword Moblin
        Effective Weapons/Items: S, H, M, R, B, A
        Description: These Moblins from the past Zelda games come with a sword
                     and shield, but can only be found in the Mysterious Forest.
                     You can just easily defeat them by hitting them a couple
                     times with your sword or just burn them quickly with Magic
                     Powder.
    
    Tektite
        Effective Weapons/Items: S, H, M, R, B, A

        Description: This water-dwelling creature is only found in deep water
                     areas. Since you can't attack in the water, hit it with a
                     weapon from land to hurt it.
    
    Zombie
        Effective Weapons/Items: S, H, M, R, B, A

    Angler Fry
        Effective Weapons/Items: S, H, M, R, B, A
        Description: This smaller version of the Angler Fish boss isn't too
                     difficult. All you have to do is hit it with your sword to
                     defeat it.
    
    Anti-Kirby
        Effective Weapons/Items: R, B
        Description: This is the evil version of Kirby. They try to suck you up
                     and keep you inside of them! Luckily, they only appear in
                     the Eagle's Tower. Prevent that by hitting it from a
                     distance with a Bomb or the Magic Rod.
    
    Arm-Mimic
        Effective Weapons/Items: S, H
        Description: This weird creature is a real pain because it mimics you
                     whenever you move. It is invulnerable to most weapons, but
                     you can defeat it easily by dashing into it with the Pegasus
                     Boots and with the Sword equipped.
    
    Big Keese
        Effective Weapons/Items: S, H, R, B, A
        Description: This is obviously a much larger version than the regular
                     Keese. You only fight these bats during the fight against
                     the Grim Creeper mini-boss. Defeat them quickly by hitting
                     them with your sword.
    
    Bloober
        Effective Weapons/Items: S, H, R, B, A
        Description: This octopus enemy from the Super Mario series makes its
                     appearance in this game. Just defeat them quickly with your

    Bombite
        Effective Weapons/Items: S, H, M, R, B, A
        Description: This is a walking bomb that ricochets around the room, then
                     explodes if you hit it. There are 2 types of Bombites: one
                     just ricochets, then explodes, and the other counts down
                     from 3 to 1, then explodes. The ricocheting one is a real
                     pain to avoid, so watch out!
    
    Boo Buddy
        Effective Weapons/Items: S, H, R, B, A
        Description: This ghost enemy is quite different than the ones in the
                     Mario games. In this game, these ghosts come after you even
                     if you're looking right at them! Defeat them by lighting up
                     the room with Magic Powder, and then attack them.
    
    Cheep-Cheep
        Effective Weapons/Items: S, H, R, B, A
        Description: This fish enemy, also from the Mario games, is found in the
                     watery side-view areas of the dungeons. Since all they do is
                     swim up and down, just take them out quickly with your
                     sword.
    
    Gel
        Effective Weapons/Items: S, H, M, R, B, A
        Description: This jelly-like enemy is VERY easy to beat! It comes out of
                     the ground and hops after you. Sometimes when you hit it
                     with your sword, it'll split into 2 smaller Gels. Defeat it
                     by hitting it with a strong weapon or just with your sword.
    
    Gibdo
        Effective Weapons/Items: S, H, R, B, P, A
        Description: This mummy enemy from Zelda 1 and 3 are back in this game as
                     well. They can take a bunch of hits with your sword, but to
                     make the fight quick, just burn it up with the Magic Rod!
                     You can also use the Hookshot to stun it, then pick it up
                     with the Power Bracelet and throw it into a pit to kill it!
    
    Goomba
        Effective Weapons/Items: S, H, M, R, B, A
        Description: Another creature from the Mario games! To beat Goomba here,
                     just attack it with any of your weapons or simply use Roc's
                     Feather and crush it!
    
    Hardhat Beetle
        Effective Weapons/Items: B
        Description: These enemies have a large rubbery shell in its head,
                     preventing you for hurting it. You can defeat it by either
                     hitting it with your sword into a pit or you can just blow
                     it up with a bomb.
    
    Iron Mask
        Effective Weapons/Items: S, H, M, R, B, A
        Description: This enemy protects itself by holding a large iron mask in
                     front of it. You can only hurt it from behind, or you can
                     just snatch its mask with the Hookshot, then attack it
                     normally.
    
    Keese
        Effective Weapons/Items: S, H, M, R, B, A
        Description: These small black bats are found hiding in the darkness in
                     most caves and dungeons. They are very easy to defeat
                     though; just hit it once with any of your weapons to kill!
    
    Mask-Mimic
        Effective Weapons/Items: S, H, R, B, A
        Description: This is a masked version of the Arm-Mimic enemy. It also
                     looks like a Shy Guy from SMB2! Since this enemy mimics your
                     moves, and its mask protects it from taking damage, charge
                     up your Spinning Sword Attack, then get behind it and
                     attack!
    
    Mini Moldorm
        Effective Weapons/Items: S, H, M, R, B, A
        Description: Just like its name, it's a mini version of the boss Moldorm.
                     You don't have to hit this enemy in its tail to hurt it,
                     though. Just hit it anywhere to defeat it.
    
    Pairodd
        Effective Weapons/Items: S, H, R, B, A
        Description: This odd creature is different than the other enemies
                     because it disappears when you get near it. Then, it
                     reappears and shoots something at you! Defeat it by using
                     the Pegasus Boots to run into it and stab it with your
                     sword.

        Description: This flame-spitting entity is found in a cave along the way
                     to Turtle Rock. Since it is invulnerable to all weapons and
                     you can't get past it, you have to use your new Mirror

                  repeatedly hit it with your sword until you see it splitting
                  into 2 and there's just a small thread holding them together.
                  Then, ram that spot with the Pegasus Boots and the sword and
                  it'll split into 2 enemies! To beat them, hit them with your
                  sword and use Roc's Feather to jump in the air when they come
                  crashing to the ground after you hit them. Keep doing that
                  until they're both defeated.
    
    Angler Fish
        Found: Angler's Tunnel
        Effective Weapons/Items: S, B, A
        Strategy: This giant fish is the boss of the Angler's Tunnel. Its
                  weakness is a glowing tentacle above its head. To beat this
                  fish, hit the tentacle repeatedly with your sword while the
                  fish moves up and down. If you're not quick enough, the Angler
                  will dash towards you to attack. Then, continue hitting the
                  tentacle until it's defeated.
    
    Slime Eel
        Found: Catfish's Maw
        Effective Weapons/Items: S, H
        Strategy: When you enter this boss's chamber inside the Catfish's Maw, a
                  giant pit opens up in the middle of the room. Its tail pops out
                  and rotates around in a circle, then 4 holes in the walls
                  appear. To beat this creature, wait until you see the eel's
                  head pop out of one of the 4 holes, then when it opens its
                  mouth, shoot the Hookshot into it while trying to avoid the
                  spiked tail. After you pull the eel out of the hole, hit the
                  flashing heart behind its head a few times with your sword.
                  Watch out because there is also a fake eel and if you pull it
                  out, it'll explode! Keep pulling out and attacking the real eel
                  until it's defeated.
    
    Fašade
        Found: Face Shrine
        Effective Weapons/Items: B
        Strategy: This giant face in the floor is the boss of the Face Shrine
                  dungeon. When you first enter this room, it'll make Flying
                  Tiles come out of the ground and fly after you, then it'll make
                  the 4 pots fly towards you. After you evade all those flying
                  objects, plant a bomb on the face of Fašade. After it explodes,
                  Fašade will disappear, then reappear again. Repeat the last
                  step around 3 or 4 more times to defeat it.
    
    Evil Eagle
        Found: Eagle's Tower
        Effective Weapons/Items: S, H, B, A
        Strategy: This giant eagle that flies around atop the Eagle's Tower is
                  the boss of Level 7. After it first takes off and it flies
                  onscreen again, hit its beak with the Hookshot as it flies by.
                  When it flies by 2 more times, hit it both times. Then, it'll
                  stop and start to shoot feathers and make strong wind gusts
                  come towards you. Use the Mirror Shield to keep the wind gusts
                  from blowing you off the tower as easily and to block the
                  feathers shot at you. Then, hit it again with the Hookshot when
                  it flies by overhead. Continue to hit its beak with the
                  Hookshot until it's defeated.
    
    Hot Head
        Found: Turtle Rock
        Effective Weapons/Items: R
        Strategy: This fiery boss is the guardian of the Thunder Drum deep inside
                  the Turtle Rock dungeon. It jumps in and out of the lava and
                  surprisingly doesn't actually attack you! The only weapon that
                  can cause harm to it is the Magic Rod, even though it shoots
                  fire! When Hot Head comes out of the lava, shoot it as many
                  times as you can with the Magic Rod. Make sure to ambush it
                  with lots of hits when it is above the lava because when it
                  dives back in, it recovers and you'll have to start over.
                  Continue to use the Magic Rod until you eventually put out its
                  flames and beat it!
    
    The 6 Nightmare Shadows
        Found: Wind Fish's Egg
        Effective Weapons/Items: Varies
        Strategy: The 6 Shadows deep inside the Wind Fish's Egg are the final
                  bosses of the game. There are obviously 6 of them, and I'll
                  provide separate strategies on beating each one below:
    
        Giant Gel
            Effective Weapons/Items: M
            Strategy: This Giant Gel is the first of the 6 Shadows, but not the
                      absolute easiest (Lanmola's Shadow is!). When it appears,
                      it'll make a small hop forward. Go up to it and sprinkle
                      Magic Powder on it to hurt it. Then, back up and it'll take
                      another small hop. Sprinkle more Magic Powder on it to
                      cause damage. Do this one more time to beat the Giant Gel
                      and the shadow will become Agahnim's Shadow!
    
        Agahnim's Shadow
            Effective Weapons/Items: S
            Strategy: The shadow of Agahnim attacks just the same as the real one
                      from Zelda 3 (A Link to the Past). When he casts a spell
                      and a flashing ball comes towards you, hit it with your
                      sword back towards Agahnim to hurt him. When he moves to
                      another area of the room, do the same thing. Watch out,
                      though, because if he casts a spell and a bunch of small
                      shots together come towards you, they'll hurt you even
                      though you hit them with your sword! Keep hitting the
                      flashing balls at him a few more times until he's defeated.
    
        Shadow of Moldorm
            Effective Weapons/Items: S
            Strategy: This shadow is exactly like the original Moldorm boss you
                      fought back in the Tail Cave! Defeat this one the same way
                      as the original: hit its tail and watch out when it moves
                      quickly after you hit it. Keep hitting it a bunch of times
                      until you defeat it.
    
        Ganon's Shadow
            Effective Weapons/Items: S
            Strategy: The shadow of Ganon from A Link to the Past is back as one
                      of the final nightmares. To beat this reincarnation, use
                      the Pegasus Boots to dash into Ganon and stab it with your
                      sword. Keep ramming it while watching out when he calls a
                      bunch of bats to attack until you beat him!
    
        Shadow of Lanmola
            Effective Weapons/Items: R
            Strategy: This just HAS to be the easiest of the shadows! When it
                      appears, just hit it once with your Magic Rod to defeat it!
    
        Dethl
            Effective Weapons/Items: A
            Strategy: This is the last and hardest of the 6 Shadows. It has 2
                      long tentacles that circle around its center area. Jump
                      over the tentacles while trying to stay in front of Dethl's
                      middle area and wait until it opens its eye. Then, shoot a
                      bunch of arrows at its eye while avoiding the tentacles
                      until the eye closes. When it opens again, shoot more
                      arrows into it. After you've successfully shot about 20
                      arrows into its eye, Dethl will be defeated and you win the
                      game! Another quicker way to defeat Dethl is possible only
                      if you have the Boomerang. When it opens its eye, throw the
                      Boomerang right into it for an instant defeat!
    
    Giant Hardhat Beetle (Boss of Color Dungeon)
        Found: Color Dungeon
        Effective Weapons/Items: S
        Strategy: This giant version of the Hardhat Beetle isn't too tough for
                  the boss of the new Color Dungeon. When you start the fight,
                  its helmet is blue and each time you hit it with your sword,
                  it'll change colors. Keep hitting it with your sword until it
                  turns red, and then hit it again to beat it! Watch out when it
                  attacks, and be quick when you attack or it'll change back to
                  the blue color again.
