"A ghost that flies over the graveyard. You can't see all of them unless you have the cross."
Zelda II: The Adventure of Link manual

Moas are enemies from Zelda II: The Adventure of Link. These enemies fly typically either back and forth, or in a swooping fashion. They resemble flying eyeballs and there are several different varieties of the Moa.

Fire Moas are orange in color and are found in only palaces. They fly above Link's head in a swooping pattern, dropping flames from their bodies. They have the ability to deduct Experience from Link if he touches one. Red Moas are found in the Graveyards in Western Hyrule. They fly across the screen, changing their altitude slightly each time that they cross the screen.

Dark Blue Moas, also known as Town Moas, appear in only the village of Old Kasuto. Without the Cross, Link cannot see them, although, he can still deal damage if he manages to hit one. They are the only kind of Moa that do not deduct experience points if Link touches one.

The last type, known as the Blue Moas, are also invisible without the Cross. They appear in the small graveyard in Eastern Hyrule, and in the lava flows leading up to the Great Palace. They are the only enemy worth more than 20 experience points to drop blue magic vials and P Bags worth 50 experience, rather than red magic vials and 200 experience P-bags.
