The Wind Waker
- Main article: Paralyzing Fog
Paralyzing Fog can be found in certain areas of the Earth Temple. If Link comes into contact with it, he will become Cursed, meaning that none of his items work, including his Master Sword. While affected, Link is surrounded by a concentrated smog, his body flashes purple, and he acts disoriented or weakened. This is markedly similar to being cursed by a Blue Bubble. The curse will not be lifted unless he gets out of the Paralyzing Fog or finds a Light Beam to take refuge under.
In Twilight Princess, After Link is transformed into Wolf Link, purple Fog appears in Faron Woods. Link initially crosses the foggy portion of the woods by jumping across tree branches with the help of Midna. Fog damages Link when he steps into it but can be temporarily cleared by holding a Lantern. After re-entering the area in human form, a Monkey takes Link's Lantern and guides him through the fog to the Forest Temple. This fog remains here for the rest of the game.
- Main article: Dark Fog
In the Palace of Twilight, Dark Fog appears as a trap that will automatically turn Link into Wolf Link. Dark Fog was made by Zant and large amounts of Dark Fog appear when Phantom Zant is defeated.
A poisonous Fog appears in Spirit Tracks whenever a Vengas is defeated inside the Forest Temple. If Link comes in contact with the impenetrable Fog, he will be hurt by it until he moves away. The Whirlwind is capable of blowing the Fog away.
