"They come out of the ground when they sense prey. If you get swallowed, you'll take damage and get all dirty!"

Moldworms are enemies from The Legend of Zelda: The Minish Cap. They are Minish-sized and fairly weak, resembling worms. They are mainly encountered on roads and in dungeons, where they hide underground and burrow out when they sense prey. Moldworms will attempt to swallow Link if he gets too close, and if successful, will both begrime and cause damage to him. To defeat a Moldworm, Link must slash at their heads with his sword.

It is possible that they are somehow related to the similarly named Moldorms.
