The Adventure of Link Manual Comment
The Deeler attacks Link by dropping from the threads of spiderweb-like string. It can most easily be slain by inducing it to fall by running past and then hailing it with Sword Beams, but a sword slash will work as well. This enemy will stay concealed on the ceiling until Link, (or any non-monster traveler for that matter), comes wandering by. Once the unwary prey comes beneath it, the Deeler will let webs fall on the passer-by and then drop down to finish the victim. If Link is caught in a Deeler's webs, he must break out and slash the arachnid twice to kill it.
The blue variety of Deelers is stronger, and will drop down and attack from the ground.
