"It's vulnerable to fire!"

Anubis are enemies from The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time. They are undead creatures that have a mimicking nature and, unlike most enemies, do not attack Link directly, but rather will only harm him if Link is to strike first. They cannot be killed with a sword, however, as hitting them with a blade results in them torching Link. The only way to kill them is with fire, which can be done leading them into flame-filled obstacles, or by using Fire Arrows or Din's Fire. They appear only in the Spirit Temple.

Interestingly, sometimes if you throw a bomb at them, another Anubis will appear.


Anubis are presumably named after the Egyptian name for the jackal-headed god in Egyptian mythology.
