Force Soldiers are an enemy introduced in Four Swords Adventures. They are a large Force Gem in the form of an enemy Soldier.
During certain circumstances, usually when playing on the Game Boy Advance, approaching certain large green Force Gems causes them to suddenly spring into sentience, growing legs and a sword and shield and attacking any nearby Links. They defend and attack as capable swordsmen, much like Sword Soldiers. They can withstand a few hits but upon defeating one, a large green Force Gem valued at 100 will appear as a spoil of the battle. However, if the Links do not defeat these foes fast enough, the Force Gem Knights will instead explode, thus robbing the Links of their prize of 100 Force Gems and only leaving them with a pitiful single gem.
The deceptive appearance of an obtainable gem is not unique to this enemy. Rupee Likes and Force Likes are other enemies employing this technique to fool greedy adventurers.
