Stalkin are enemies from The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess. They are small reanimated skeletons, similar to Stalchildren and Stalfos. They appear in the Arbiter's Grounds and Cave of Ordeals, where they attack Link in swarms by stabbing him with their spears. However, their defense is weak, and only one sword strike is needed to defeat them. Using the Spin Attack when encircled by Stalkin will decimate most of the hordes. They are susceptible to Bombs, Bomblings, and Bomb Arrows all which can be effective at taking out large hordes of them. They can also be killed in two shots with normal Arrows.

The Ball and Chain is also very effective when attacking hordes of them. Interestingly, while Link is wearing his Iron Boots, he can kill them by rolling. However care must be taken when using this method, especially in areas with Quicksand.

In one place, Stalkin will continuously reappear out of the sand until Link lights the Torches in an area, so it might be that they hate light, fire, or both.
