The Wind Waker
|Morth (Figurine from The Wind Waker)|
|Habitat: Forbidden Woods|
Least Favorite Thing: Deku Leaves
These creatures attack in groups and cling to the bodies of their prey. A spin attack is the best way to shake them off. They're light and vulnerable to Deku Leaf blasts.
Morths mainly appear in wooded areas, most commonly in the Forbidden Woods in The Wind Waker. They will close in on Link whenever he moves close. If several Morths latch on, they will hamper his movements. Link can easily free himself by performing a Spin Attack or just by rolling. They are easily dispatched with the Sword and the Boomerang if they are not latched on to Link. They can also be sent flying away by using the Deku Leaf. Morths are also occasionally released by Mothula as well.
Tri Force Heroes
Morths appear in certain Levels of The Dunes area and in the Desert Zone of the Den of Trials in Tri Force Heroes. They always appear in groups of three and will immediately slow down the Link they manage to attach to. When attached, Morths prevent the Link from dashing. Morths cannot be removed by the Link they are latched onto, instead, another Link can free him by attacking them with his Sword or with another item. Morths often appear in sandy areas, potentially making the Links susceptible to sinking in quicksand. Morths will also respawn shortly after they are defeated. They often appear in Stages where all enemies have to be defeated, however, Morths are not counted. They will disappear completely after clearing these Stages.
