Purple Moblins are the strongest variety of Moblin. The only appear in the Future World, where they move every other beat and can throw a spear at Cadence, Link, Yves, or Zelda. When throwing their spear, they will pause on one beat to aim, then throw it on the second beat, letting it land on the third beat. Afterwards, they will make their way towards retrieving their weapon or if it is destroyed, grab any other spears within their vicinity. If there are none available, they proceed to chase and attack the heroes.
Their spears can be picked up with the Power Glove and tossed back at enemies, taking two beats to land. Any spear that they pick up will automatically turn into a Purple Moblin spear, even if it originally came from a different Moblin.
In Symphony of the Mask, Purple Skull Moblins are the strongest variety of Skull Moblin, but otherwise act the same.
