"Five of them pop out at once. If you smack each one as they pop out of the ground, they're a piece of cake."

Acro-Bandits are enemies from The Legend of Zelda: The Minish Cap. They are small, yellow creatures that attack in groups of five. They dwell underground and jump out in columns if someone comes close to them. In order to destroy them, Link must kill them all at once with his sword when they come out of their holes. If one Acro-Bandit escapes and burrows back into the ground, it comes out, bringing back four more with it. An alternative way to kill them is by killing the first one that pops its head out of the ground to scout ahead.


Acro-Bandits appear to be named after acrobats, performers of extraordinary feats of balance, skill, and motor coordination.
