Gohma Larvae are enemies from The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time. They are the offspring of Queen Gohma and, alongside their mother, the cause of the Great Deku Tree's ailment. Gohma Larvae are encountered Inside the Deku Tree. They appear throughout the dungeon, as well as during the battle with Queen Gohma when she spawns them in order to overwhelm Link. They start out in egg-like cocoons that hang from the ceiling. If Link walks directly below one of the eggs, it hatches, and a Gohma Larva falls out. The eggs can be destroyed before they hatch with the use of the Fairy Slingshot or the Kokiri Sword. They are the most aggressive monster encountered in the dungeon and can overwhelm Link if he has not learned proper Z-targeting techniques. When a larva is about to attack Link, its eye and tail turn red.
