Chasers are traps that appear in a number of games in The Legend of Zelda series.[citation needed][1]


They are similar to Blade Traps in that they will chase Link if he crosses their path in one of the four cardinal directions. They move slower than Blade Traps however, and will not return to their original position once reaching a wall. They will instead stop at their new position, and "chase" Link from there. As to be expected, Chasers are often found in narrow corridors where they are harder to dodge.
