A Catfish is a character from The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past. It is an oversized catfish residing in the Lake of Ill Omen in the Dark World.


Spoiler warning: Plot or ending details follow.

The Catfish is not initially seen, apparently sleeping underwater at the middle of a circle of stones. When Link throws something such as a skull or bush into the stone circle, the Catfish is awakened; though angry with Link for disturbing his rest, it presents Link with the Quake Medallion in an attempt to make him go away. Subsequent disturbances will result in the Catfish throwing fireballs or bombs at Link.
