Mini-Moldorms are recurring Enemies in The Legend of Zelda series.[1][note 1]


A Link to the Past

Link's Awakening

Oracle of Seasons and Oracle of Ages

In Oracle of Seasons and Oracle of Ages, Mini-Moldorms appear with a black body with green outline in comparison to its gold body in A Link to the Past. In Oracle of Ages, Mini-Moldorms can be found in Moonlit Grotto, Skull Dungeon, Jabu-Jabu's Belly, Ancient Tomb, and Hero's Cave.

In Oracle of Seasons, there is a Mini-Moldorm hidden on an island off the Western Coast. The sign there says that the Black Beast rests there.[3] If Link uses a Mystery Seed on the object buried there, it brings the Mini-Moldorm back to life. After defeating it, Link obtains the X-Shaped Jewel. Other instances where Mini-Moldorms appear are in Poison Moth's Lair, Unicorn's Cave, Explorer's Crypt, Sword & Shield Maze, Temple Remains, and Hero's Cave.

A Link Between Worlds

In A Link Between Worlds, Mini-Moldorms appear similarily to their appearance in A Link to the Past. Purple Mini-Moldorms are a stronger variant of Mini-Moldorm.
