Bats in Zelda's Adventure are encountered only in the Shrine of Earth and Shrine of Air. They have the appearance of large, purple bats. Bats usually travel around a room in a certain path. They take a few hits from the Wand to defeat, but become invincible temporarily between each hit.

In the Shrine of Earth, the Compass can be obtained from defeating every Bat in the room south of the crossroads area.
