- This article is about the Phantom Hourglass enemy. For the pair of Golden Bugs in Twilight Princess, see Golden Stag Beetle. For the insect in Skyward Sword, see Sky Stag Beetle.
Stag Beetles appear in the Temple of Ice. They have strong masks that protect them from frontal attacks, similar to Helmasaurs. In order to damage them, Link can either attack them from behind or remove their mask with the Grappling Hook. With their mask gone, Stag Beetles attempts to flee. A single Sword strike is usually enough to defeat them.
