A Shellblade in Twilight Princess
Main appearance(s)
Effective Weapon(s)
Hookshot, Clawshot, Sword (Spin Attack), Megaton Hammer

Shell Blades are aquatic clam-like enemies that appear in Ocarina of Time, Majora's Mask and Twilight Princess. They will will lunge themselves at Link if he gets too close. When they do this, Link must block them with his shield or move out of the way. They will stop and eventually open up, exposing their muscle ligaments which Link can attack with the Hookshot in Ocarina of Time, as Zora Link in Majora's Mask, and with the Clawshot or sword in Twilight Princess. In Majora's Mask, Shell Blades guard some of the stolen Zora Eggs in Pirates' Fortress.

It should be noted that when encountered out of water in Ocarina of Time, these enemies can be defeated with a larger spectrum of weapons. The Megaton Hammer is useful as it may shatter a Shell Blade in a single blow, as will the bombs if timed correctly.

Navi's Comment

Hey! Listen! Watch out!

Shell Blade

Its internal muscle is its weak point!

Tatl's Comment

What?! You don't know?

Shell Blade

Don't tell me you don't know about the Shell Blade! It's impossible to beat it if you aim for anything but its ligament inside the shell.


In Twilight Princess, it is the only normal enemy that will bleed when defeated.
