================================================================================

Anti-Fairy
----------
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
destroy.


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.


Beamos
------
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.


Birii
-----
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...


Bubble
------
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...


Cheep-Cheeps
------------
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.


Crab
----
These crabs are, well, crab-like and are found on most beaches throughout
Holodrum and Labrynna. Just hit them as the charge you.


Cukemon
-------
This is the result of sprinkling Mystery Seeds on Buzz Blobs. Listen to what
they have to say (*grin*)


Darknight
---------
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
advice.


Floormaster
-----------
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.


Gel
---
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.


Ghini
-----
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.


Gibdo
-----
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.


Hiploop
-------
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.


Hoarder
-------
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.


Keese
-----
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.

Leever
------
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!


Lyonell
------
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.


Magnites
--------
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.


Mini-Moldorm
------------
These black, segmented, worm-like creatures slither around. They take several
hits, but can be killed with just a normal sword.


Moblin
------
These  dog-headed  humanoids are  equipped  with either  boomerangs,  spears, or
occasionally a sword. Hit them  with your sword while avoiding  their projectile
weapons.


Moblin, Pig
-----------
These pig-headed moblins are usually armed with swords or spears. Take 'em out
the same way as normal moblins.


Octorok
-------
These four-legged, land-dwelling octopi spit rocks at Link. Block the rocks
with your shield then just hit 'em till they explode.


Peahat
------
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.


Pincer
------
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
emerge.


Podobos
-------
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


Pokey
-----
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.

Raven
-----
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.


Rope
----
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.


Spark
-----
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.


Spider
------
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.

Stalfos
-------
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.

Tektite
-------
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.


Traps
-----
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
point.


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.


Wallmaster
----------
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!


Wickies
-------
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
explode.


Wizzrobe
--------
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.

Zola
----
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.

Zol
---
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.
