Shrouded Stalfos are recurring enemies in The Legend of Zelda series. They are Stalfos draped in heavy cloaks, making them slower than the standard Stalfos. They do not usually go armed; their only way to damage Link being if he should bump into them, but in some instances, they wield swords and shields.

Shrouded Stalfos (Link's Awakening)

When armed, Shrouded Stalfos either wield swords or bows. They are, however, slower due to their heavy garments. Because of this, Link can easily ambush and defeat them with his sword.

Shrouded Stalfos are essentially identical to their Link's Awakening counterparts, though they do not carry shields.
