What?! You don't know?


It's a Dexihand. Just be careful... Look, it's not my fault if you get too close and it grabs you!


Dexihands are turquoise arms with yellow finger tips, slightly similar to the hands of Dead Hand. If Link gets too close to one, it will attempt to grab his body, then fling him around for a few seconds before tossing him away. Dexihands can be killed by Zora Link's boomerang fins or electrical shield. They often guard treasure or something needed to progress in the game. While a normal Dexihand will always toss Link in the same direction he approached it from, specific ones will throw him away from what they are guarding.


  • In The Wind Waker, there is a similar enemy called the Dexivine. This enemy drains Magic Power from Link when he gets within reach of the claw-like vine.
  • The Dexihands which appear Beneath the Well are living on the surface of a puddle. These are much more similar to the Floormasters found in The Wind Waker, because of the way they are positioned.
