Patra is a mini-boss in The Legend of Zelda.
The Legend of Zelda Manual Comment
Patra is a mini-boss in Level-9, composed of a single flying eye surrounded by several smaller flying eyes. Patra comes in two varieties, denoted by the pattern in which the outer ring of eyes behaves. While both types spin their smaller eyes around the center one, one variety has the outer circle expand and contract, while the other variety's smaller eyes rotate like a gyroscope. Before Link can defeat the main eye, he must attack the smaller ones first. Patra is only vulnerable to the Sword and to the Magical Rod; however, it is only affected by direct contact with the rod, as neither the beams nor the Book of Magic flames harm it.
