Devalants are giant, burrowing insects with large snapping pincers that live in desert regions. They create sinkholes in the sand as they burrow underneath, drawing in their prey.
A Link to the Past
In A Link to the Past, two varieties of Devalants can be found; A Red variety, and a blue variety. The blue variety will sit and wait for Link to fall into its sinkhole, while the red variety will spit fireballs over a long distance. Upon killing a Devalant, the sinkhole which it lived in will disappear, leaving unmoving sand where it once was.

- Devalants are named as Moldorms in the official Shogakukan guide for Four Swords Adventures.
- The behavior of Molgera when submerged in the sand is very similar to that of a Devalant, but on a much larger scale.
