Blue Tektites are recurring Enemies in The Legend of Zelda series.[1][2]


The Legend of Zelda[]

Blue Tektites are common Enemies found throughout The Legend of Zelda. They hop around annoyingly and the most efficient way of killing them is by using the Boomerang to stun them and to stab them using any of the three types of Swords in the game. They can hop around anywhere, meaning they can jump on walls that are impassable to Link and cannot be interacted with until it jumps off the wall again. When defeated, they can drop either a Heart, one Rupee, five Rupees or a Clock. They have a collision damage of half a heart.

Cadence of Hyrule[]

Blue Tektites appear as enemies in Cadence of Hyrule where they move to the beat of the music. They are a stronger variant of Tektite, and possess a unique attack pattern as they move every two beats, crouching for one beat before jumping on the next beat. However, they can only move diagonally and possess a short jump, being only able to hop onto short cliffs and other objects one block at a time.
