Scissors Beetle
Appears in Minish roads & dungeons.
These monsters have sharp mandibles.
Hit them when they shoot these away.
Avoid their attacks to get in close.

Scissors Beetles' large mandibles act as a shield, and are detached and thrown like a Boomerang. The Scissors Beetles stop moving when they throw their mandibles to attack, giving Link an opportunity to strike them while they are vulnerable. They appear in areas across Hyrule that Link accesses while Minish-sized.
