Dactos are recurring enemies in The Legend of Zelda series.[1][2]


A Link to the Past


In A Link to the Past, Dactos are only found in the Dark World. They are commonly found on rocky outcrops and in the Swamp of Evil. Much like Crows in the Light World, they can be found sitting on trees. When they spot Link, they will swoop down at him much like Crows, however, they will follow him until they are defeated, causing more damage.

A Link Between Worlds

In A Link Between Worlds, Dactos appear solely in Lorule, again taking on the same role as Crows in Hyrule.
