Toadpolis are recurring Enemies in The Legend of Zelda series.[1][2][note 1]


Toadpolis are armored, two-legged Frogs-like enemies that are found in watery areas, swimming in Water. They act very similarly to Octoroks. They spit projectiles at Link which he can slice with his Sword or deflect them back, defeating the Toadpolis. If Link comes too close to them, they dive back under the Water.

Toadpolis grow into Deku Toads after a thousand years.[4]
