This caterpillar moves in a zigzag
pattern. If you hit him on the nose, he
gets upset and starts running around.

Madderpillars are blue insectoid creatures that reside in Dungeons that Link accesses while he is Minish-sized. Their lairs are usually covered in spiderwebs, which can be removed with the Gust Jar or the Flame Lantern. When Link strikes a Madderpillar in the nose, it will turn gray from its nose to its tail, which will bulge outwards and become vulnerable to attacks. After this period of vulnerability, the Madderpillar will turn red and move quickly throughout its lair before slowing down and returning to its normal blue coloration.
