Fire Eyes are recurring traps in The Legend of Zelda series.
The Fire Eye looks like a normal silver Eye Switch. When Link is close to it, it will emit fire. If it is shot with an Arrow while open, it will be destroyed.
In the normal quest of Ocarina of Time, only one Fire Eye appears in the Shadow Temple. In the Master Quest, there are several in the Shadow Temple. These Fire Eyes open when Link is near them and shoots a fireball that slowly chases Link once it touches the ground. The fireball is extremely persistent but can be deflected using a Shield.
In Majora's Mask, several Fire Eyes appear Beneath the Well. These Fire Eyes emit a prolonged flame when Link is too close, which cannot be defended against using a Shield.
