Target lock: Froak
"Though this odd creature is cowardly by nature, it will expose an array of densely packed defensive spines when approached or provoked."

Froaks are large pufferfish-like enemies. They are cowardly creatures, preferring to defend themselves solely by puffing up their bodies, exposing bristling quills around them. They otherwise float about aimlessly, are generally only a threat in close contact. Despite their otherwise nonviolent demeanor, Froaks are prone to exploding upon any contact. Froaks will usually explode upon contact with Link, other enemies, barriers, and attacks from projectiles. These explosive properties can be used to blow up rock walls and damage other enemies.

Froaks can be found in the Lanayru Desert, Lake Floria, Ancient Cistern, and on Link's second visit to the Skyview Temple. They can be easily dispatched by blowing them into a wall with the Gust Bellows, striking them away with the Sword, using an underwater spin maneuver, or hitting their unprotected bodies with any sort of projectile.
