Wolfos appear in Ocarina of Time and Majora's Mask. In terms of appearance, Wolfos are grey, anthropomorphic wolf-like creatures with green eyes that commonly appear in forest environments. Their counterpart is the White Wolfos, which is much larger and only appears in cold and snowy surroundings. In Ocarina of Time, Wolfos appear in the Sacred Forest Meadow, the Forest Temple, the Spirit Temple and Ganon's Castle. In Majora's Mask, they appear near the Southern Swamp and replace the White Wolfos of Snowhead after spring is returned to the mountain. A single Wolfos also appears in Sakon's Hideout as part of the mechanism that protects the Sun Mask.
Wolfos will emerge from the ground when approached. They fight in direct combat, and can duck down to block Link's attacks. They attack by circling Link and diving in to strike with their claws. One strategy is to Z-Target them and use the Shield constantly, then attack when it drops its guard. Another strategy is to back away when the Wolfos goes to attack, which will cause its raking claws to miss. It will then spin around, leaving its back exposed. If Link hits the tail, it will be defeated instantly. Another option is to use the Hookshot or a Deku Nut to stun it, and then attack at will.
