Crows are recurring Enemies in The Legend of Zelda series.[1] They are small, dark birds similar to their real-life counterparts, but are dangerous and aggressive, lying in wait to swoop down on passing travelers. They are also known for stealing shiny items such as Keys and Rupees. They are closely related to Takkuri and Dacto. They first appeared in A Link to the Past.

Characteristics

In most games the behavior of a Crow is the same; upon entering the territory of a Crow, the bird will swoop down at high speed in an attempt to ward Link off. Though these intimidating, a couple of swipes of Link's blade is usually enough to destroy them; the difficulty is hitting them. If Link fails to defeat them, they will usually give up their assault, but they may return for a second swoop, hounding Link for a short while.

A Link to the Past



Link's Awakening

In Link's Awakening, one Crow found in the grounds of Kanalet Castle will not attack Link unless provoked; this is because it has stolen one of Prince Richard's Golden Leaves. Link must strike the Trees it is hiding in with a rock and defeat the bird to retrieve the Leaf.

Other Appearances

Bird

Some believe these odd birds developed round bodies from excessive rest. It's also possible they merely ingested something spherical.

In Battle Quest in Nintendo Land, Crows appear simply known as Birds in the North American version of the game and as Cawsie in the PAL translation. Their appearance is significantly different from the main Zelda series, instead appearing as white, fat birds with heart-shaped wings. They look like a bag tied with a ribbon. Also unlike other games they are not aggressive, and instead of attacking the player they will fly away when they get near, although usually they can be spotted roosting in various locations far out of reach. They can be struck down with arrows and will always leave behind a heart.
