Navi's Comment

Hey! Listen! Watch out!

Gohma Larva

Gohma Larva
Look out when it gets ready to pounce!

Gohma Larvae appear Inside the Deku Tree in Ocarina of Time. They hatch from Gohma Eggs found hanging on the ceiling. Link can prevent them from hatching by destroying the Eggs with the Fairy Slingshot while still on the ceiling. During the dungeon's boss fight, Gohma will hatch Larvae to distract Link.

Gohma Larvae also appear in Dodongo's Cavern in Master Quest.

Oracle of Seasons

Gohma Larvae appear in the Dancing Dragon Dungeon during Gohma's boss fight in Oracle of Seasons. Once Link destroys Gohma's claw, she will occasionally fire Larvae at him. They can be defeated with the Sword.

Twilight Princess

Young Gohma appear in the Temple of Time in Twilight Princess. They leap towards Link trying to bite him with their pincers. They can be defeated with the Sword or with the Hero's Bow from afar. Once the Dominion Rod is obtained, Link can crush the Young Gohma by using a statue's hammer.
