It's a Black Boe...
Just calm down and attack it! Look, there are just a lot of them, that's all.

Black Boes are Boes that hide in darkness. They can be found in Woodfall Temple, the Mountain Village, the Oceanside Spider House, Beneath the Well, and in the Stone Tower Temple. They can occasionally blend in with their backgrounds, so long as the backgrounds are dark. They can also occasionally be found in Jars.

  1. Black Boes were referred to as Kurobos on Zelda.com's encyclopedia.[2] However, as this contradicts the name given in-game, it is not considered Canon.

    Kurobos are small black masses with beady yellow eyes who indiscriminately attack based on floor vibrations."
