Cave of Ordeals
Ball and Chain
Chilfos are found in the Snowpeak Ruins and in the Cave of Ordeals. They carry large, spear-like icicles that they use as two-handed weapons against Link in hand-to-hand combat. Chilfos also throw the icicles as javelins to attack Link from a distance. They can be taken out in two hits with Bomb Arrows or with a single swing of the Ball and Chain.
A useful strategy in defeating a Chilfos is for Link to keep his distance away from it, where it will attempt to throw its javelin icicle at him. Once it breaks against Link's Shield, the Chilfos will take a few moments to reconstruct a new icicle, at which point Link will be able to successfully slice at the Chilfos with his Sword. A Chilfos can also be killed instantly by performing a Helm Splitter, Jump Strike, or a Back Slice upon it.
