"It's vulnerable to fire!"

Anubis are enemies from The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time. They are undead creatures that mimic Link and, unlike most enemies, do not attack him directly, but rather will only harm him if he strikes first. They cannot be defeated with a sword, however, as hitting them with a blade results in them torching Link. The only way to defeat 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 enough, an Anubis will occasionally split into two new Anubis when Link throws a Bomb at it.

Etymology

Anubis are named after, and physically resemble, Anubis, the jackal-headed god of mummification and the afterlife in Egyptian mythology.
