Doors that Fall Down,(OoT)[1] also known as Door Mimics,(TMC) are recurring Enemies in The Legend of Zelda series.[2]


Ocarina of Time

Door Mimics resemble normal Dungeon doors, but fall down when approached by Link, potentially crushing him if he does not move out of the way quickly enough. They can be destroyed with a variety of weapons, including Bombs.

Doors that Fall Down appear in the Fire Temple, the Gerudo Training Ground, and the Spirit Temple. If Link tries to open them, they will wobble for a moment and fall on him. They can be destroyed using Bombs or the Megaton Hammer. Door Mimics can be discerned from regular doors in Ocarina of Time, as they stick out from the wall and the wall behind the bars in the window appears to be made of bricks.
