White Wolfos are white, wolf-like creatures. They were originally depicted as anthropomorphic creatures with glowing eyes, but in later games appeared with more realistic, wolf-like forms. They are similar to the Wolfos, except they are larger and generally take to icy climates, such as the Ice Cavern in Ocarina of Time and the Snow Realm in Spirit Tracks. In Majora's Mask, they will even disappear once spring is returned to Snowhead. However, they can also be spotted in unlikely areas, such as the Gerudo's Training Ground. In Ocarina of Time, one appears at the end of the Ice Cavern as its mini-boss.
Like the Wolfos, White Wolfos will emerge from the ground when approached. They tend to fight in direct combat. In Ocarina of Time and Majora's Mask, White Wolfos will circle around Link and dive in to strike with their claws. They can also block and dodge Link's attacks. This incarnation can be fought either by blocking or dodging its own attacks, and striking back when it lets its guard down. Identically to the Wolfos, its weak spot is its tail, and striking it will instantly defeat it. In Twilight Princess and Spirit Tracks, White Wolfos tend to appear in packs, and charge at Link as opposed to bare-hand combat. The White Wolfos in Twilight Princess can dive back into the snow and reemerge to launch surprise attacks.
