Parutamu are enemies in The Adventure of Link.[1] They are a stronger variant of the Stalfos, distinguished by the horned helmet they wear.

Like Stalfos, Parutamu are equipped with a sword they use for attacking with, and a shield to block Link's attacks. In addition, their horned helmets also protects them against Link's Down Thrust attack as well. Although stronger than the Stalfos, their attack strategy remains the same, as they will only use the shield to protect their upper body and attack occasionally. As they never move their shields, their legs are vulnerable to attacks from the Sword while crouching. In some areas, like Stalfos, Parutamu will drop from above while performing a Down Thrust. Both red and blue Parutamu appear, with the blue being the stronger variety. They appear in the Island Palace, Maze Island Palace and Three-Eye Rock Palace.
