Unofficial Name

Flying Pots are recurring enemies in the Legend of Zelda series. They are fake pots that rise up and hurl themselves at Link. They can easily be defeated by either slashing them with the sword, by deflecting them with a shield, or just evading and letting them smash against the walls.


The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening

Flying Pots appear during the battle against Façade in Face Shrine. They fly at Link in a manner much similar to Flying Tiles. Once airborne, there is no way for Link to defend himself from these Flying Pots; however, pots can be picked up and broken with the Power Bracelet before they ever have the chance to do so.

The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time and Majora's Mask

In Ocarina of Time, Flying Pots appear in the Ice Cavern, Shadow Temple, and Spirit Temple. They are smaller than regular pots, and Link can defend against their attacks with any of his Shields. Upon impact, the Flying Pots may drop Hearts or magic. Flying Pots can be Z-targeted, but Navi will not provide any information about them.

In Majora's Mask, Flying Pots appear in Snowhead Temple and Stone Tower Temple. They act in the same fashion as their Ocarina of Time counterparts.
