    These look a lot like skulls  with black and white spots revolving  around them.
    The boomerang is rumoured to be able  to kill them. It is usually best  to avoid
    them though!
    Armos Knights
    These are magical statues that come to  life when Link gets too close. Some  can
    be killed with just a sword. Others require a boomerang or magical boomerang  to
    Ball & Chain Trooper
    This red-armoured soldier  has a giant  spiked flail. If  it hits you,  you take
    quite a  bit of  damage, so  leap out  of the  way and  slash him with the sword
    whilst his guard is down. He can  also be hit by Slingshot or Seed Shooter  seeds
    when his guard is down.
    A squat tower, blue-black in colour,  that is only capable of revolving  on the
    spot. If it sees Link it will fire a short laser blast at him, which is  usually
    easily dodged (or reflected with the Mirror Shield). You cannot destroy them.
    These  jellyfish  are  found  in  Jabu-Jabu's  Belly  and  thereafter.  They are
    electrically charged. Don't hit them when they are flashing; wait till they  are
    just floating around normally and hit 'em with the sword or switch/long hook  it
    you are underwater. When killed they split into two Bari (?), which are easy  to
    kill. Just swipe 'em again...
    These red and white bubbles have a skull in the middle, and unlike Sparks, don't
    just stick to walls. Hitting them  with a boomerang will finish them.  Just make
    sure they don't touch Link first, for they will curse him and leave him unable
    to use his sword if they do.
    Beetle, Hardhat
    These squat beasts have a thick black shell and two leering eyes. They cannot be
    killed by conventional  methods, but they  can be knocked  down into pits  using
    your sword  (or bounce  them off  your shield),  and they  can be  crushed by  a
    Magnetic Ball using the Magnetic Gloves.
    Buzz Blob
    These gelatinous things look a lot like walking cucumbers with eyes. They  store
    static electricity  and use  it to  great effect  when someone  hits them with a
    metal weapon. This means  that swords are out,  as well as both  Switch Hook and
    Long  Hook.   Most  other  things  will kill  or  stun  them.  For  variety, try
    sprinkling Mystery Seeds on them...
    These quite fat fish are only found in the side-scrolling underwater bits.  They
    tend to swim  in set patterns  (memory like a  goldfish), so you  can avoid them
    fairly easily. In Ages, since you  can attack underwater, you can actually  kill
    them -  use the  sword of  Switch/Long Hook.  For those  of you who didn't know,
    these guys are from the Mario games.
    These crabs are, well, crab-like and are found on most beaches throughout
    Holodrum and Labrynna. Just hit them as the charge you.
    This is the result of sprinkling Mystery Seeds on Buzz Blobs. Listen to what
    they have to say (*grin*)
    These red- or blue-armoured knights are armed with either a sword and  shield
    or a bow. The Archer Knights are easy to beat. Just stick your shield up  and
    rush them. If  you are feeling  particularly daring, don't  bother using your
    shield and simply slash  the arrows out of  the air as you  charge. The Sword
    Knights are more  of a pain.  They will raised  their shield and  charge you.
    Basically, hitting their sword is not going to do you any good, so hit
    whatever other part is available.
    Deku Scrubs
    These little guys are naturally camouflaged as bushes. They pop up, look around,
    then spit seeds at Link. Whip up  a shield to deflect their shots back  at them.
    Two hits will get them to surrender, and they will (usually) offer you helpful
    These are blue hands that appear from  the floor and rush at Link. They  usually
    work  in packs.  If they  grab you,  your are  taken back  to the  start of  the
    dungeon, so either get rid of them with your sword or just run past as quick  as
    your little legs will carry you.
    These are the tiny blobs (either red or green) that leap upon Link and slow  him
    down. They do not damage you in anyway, and one sword slash can often kill
    multiple ones at a time.
    These ghosts have  one eye and  large tongues. They  float about in  graveyards.
    More will usually appear if you touch  their graves. They can be killed by  most
    normal methods, but the trick is to  let them al out whilst keeping your  eye on
    the original one. Kill him to kill them all.
    These are stocky mummy-wrapped creatures  that just wonder around and  look fat.
    They have no attack except to touch Link, so either stay at a distance and shoot
    them with seeds, or hit 'em with an Ember Seed to turn them into a Stalfos.
    Also known as Iron Masks, these guys have (unsurprisingly) iron masks. There are
    two ways of killing  them. First, they are  very weak. Hit them  on the backside
    and they will die quickly. The easier way is to use the Magnetic Gloves on them,
    or the Switch/Long Hook, then hit their exposed body afterwards.
    These guys catch me every time. The hide under rocks or bushes and then rush out
    at you when you walk past. They are quick, but only more in straight lines.  The
    Grass Hoarders are easy to kill - slash them with your sword. The Rock Hoarders
    you can either avoid or lift the rock off their back and slash them to kill.
    These are the black bats that infest everywhere. They are easy to kill though:
    just slash 'em with your sword or use anything else...
    Keese, Fire
    These are a slightly harder version of  the keese. They set you on fire  if they
    touch you. They also fly to high to  be hit normally. You have to wait for  them
    to dive 
    before you can finish them off.
    Leevers look like spiky paperweights in my opinion. They come out of the ground
    and rush Link. If they touch you, they hurt you. Just slash 'em with the sword.
    Like Like
    Giant moving jelly-moulds. I hate these things. Let one swallow you and it  will
    eat your shield, so  either stay away and  avoid them, stay away  and shoot them
    with projectile weaponry, or just hit them normally being extra careful not  to
    let them touch you.  Unlike the N64 games,  killing Like-Likes will NOT  get you
    your eaten item back!
    These come in a red  or blue variety like most  monsters in the game. They  look
    like centaurs with the body or a lion and a humanoid torso. They have swords for
    arms that shoot beams of light. They are difficult to kill with a Wooden  Sword,
    so just avoid them until you have a more potent weapon.
    These round  critters are  able to  reverse their  magnetic polarity.  They spin
    round, changing colour from blue to red  or vice verse, and then fire a  fireball
    at you. Use  the magnetic gloves  to get them  where you want  them (a corner is
    best) and then slash 'em repeatedly so they don't get a chance to fight back.
    Mimics, Arm
    These guys are orange and run  around with their arms outstretched. They  do the
    exact opposite of  whatever Link does  (movement wise). Just  hoard them into  a
    corner and slash 'em to death.
    These black, segmented, worm-like creatures slither around. They take several
    hits, but can be killed with just a normal sword.
    These  dog-headed  humanoids are  equipped  with either  boomerangs,  spears, or
    occasionally a sword. Hit them  with your sword while avoiding  their projectile
    Moblin, Pig
    These pig-headed moblins are usually armed with swords or spears. Take 'em out
    the same way as normal moblins.
    These four-legged, land-dwelling octopi spit rocks at Link. Block the rocks
    with your shield then just hit 'em till they explode.
    These spinning flowers are  invincible whilst they are  flying round in the  air
    like little helicopters. Wait  until they have settled  on the ground, then  hit
    them with your sword to kill them.
    These are centipedal bugs that hide in holes in the ground. If you see a pair of
    eyes in a hole, jump back  immediately otherwise this beast will most  likely get
    you. If you are quick, slash at them with your sword to kill them as they
    These are fireballs that leap up at you from lava. They cannot be destroyed.
    Podobos, Chain
    These are found in the Lava Lake in Subrosia. They rise up from the lake and
    spit fireballs at you. Avoid them
    These are segmented cacti creatures from the Mario games. Slash it repeatedly
    to knock away its sections to kill it.
    Pols Voice
    The  rabbit-like ghosts  may seem  cute, but  they are  as deadly  as the  other
    monsters in Holodrum and Labrynna. They are virtually invincible as well.  Place
    a bomb next to  them to blow them  up, or use a  Flute (or the Harp  of Ages) to
    play a tune next to them to make them explode.
    These midnight blue birds sit on tree or fly onto the screen and swoop at you
    when you get near. Either avoid them (easy), or hit them as they fly at you.
    These are  green snakes  that charge  at Link  if he  is within  a horizontal or
    vertical line  of sight  (they can't  do diagonals).  Slash at  them before they
    reach you. They are easy to kill.
    Cousins of the Bubble, these guys follow the perimeter of the room, or an object
    in it. The only way of killing them is with a boomerang (after which they will
    turn into a fairy). Just avoid them otherwise.
    These are quite often found when you are digging for rupees. Also, Facade drops
    them at you when you fight her. Hit them with your sword.
    Spike Beetle
    These spiked beetles resemble Hardhat Beetles  in all respects save for the  fact
    their shell is covered  in big spikes. Use  your shield to block  them when they
    charge you, then hit their soft underbelly when they curl up from the recoil.
    These guys are undead warriors who  wouldn't give up their place in  life. There
    are three types. The basic ones just walk around. They are usually blue, and can
    be beaten with a sword as normal. The green ones tend to leap about a lot. It is
    best to corner them and slash away. The gold ones also leap about, but they
    throw bones at you as well. Same tactics as the green ones should work though.
    Stalfos, Shrouded
    These stalfos wear dark green robes and are armed with swords or spears. Kill
    them as you would Darknights or Moblins.
    These are golden-coloured, two-legged, hopping  beasts. They are fairly easy  to
    kill though. Just wait for them to jump  at you then move out the way. Hit  them
    as they land.
    Tektite, Water
    These are the four-legged, blue, water variety. They skirt around on water.
    Dive underneath them to avoid them, or stay on land and snipe from the banks...
    Tile, Flying
    These things are usually red, and lie in pretty patterns on the floor. Then  the
    doors of the room lock and they start lifting off and flying at you. Two tactics
    you can use are backing into a corner and sticking your shield up, or slashing
    every which way but loose at them and destroy them all before they hit you.
    These are  bladed blocks  that whistle  across your  path, then  slowly retract.
    There are four  colours: red, blue,  green and gold.  They are quicker,  getting
    faster in that order. Also, certain green ones may revolve around a central
    Traps, Large
    These are a bigger  and more sinister-looking version  of the normal trap.  They
    follow a set  pattern around the  room so just  stay out of  their way 'cos  you
    can't kill them.
    Also known  as a  Clutch, this  red hand  appears from  the roof  and swipes  up
    whatever is in its path, taking it back to the start of the dungeon. Just  avoid
    them. They are more trouble than they are worth!
    Don't know what they are actually called, but they look like little candles with
    feet and eyes that wander around quite placidly or just sleep on the spot. Light
    their heads with Ember Seeds to send them dashing off around the room until they
    These are  robed and  hatted wizards  who disappear  and reappear  at will. The
    green ones are the basic ones. They  are rooted to the spot, so always  appear in
    the  same  place. The  red  ones teleport  around  a bit.  The  blue ones  don't
    disappear but instead go ethereal and  walk around. All three types fire  blasts
    of magic at you. All three can be killed with the sword.
    These are fish-like creatures who emerge from little whirlpools in even  shallow
    water and spit fireballs at Link. They can be killed with a good sword hit, or
    a decent projectile attack.
    These are large gelatinous blobs, red  or green in colour. When killed,  the red
    ones split into Gels, whilst the green ones simply die. A simple sword hit  will
    do. Slash at  the red ones  twice to kill  the emerging Gels  before they have a
    chance to leap at you.
