Keatons are enemies appearing in The Minish Cap. They are derived from the mythological Japanese fox creature, kitsune, notable for their trickery.

In The Minish Cap, Keatons tread the fields of Trilby Highlands and North Hyrule Field, seeking to prey on travelers and merchants. If they spot Link, they will charge at the young hero with their daggers outstretched. If they manage to strike the young hero, they will cause him to lose some of his Rupees. Upon defeat, they yield various Rupees.

Another variety of Keatons appear in Dark Hyrule Castle. They bear a purple color palette in accordance with Vaati's corruption, though they retain the same amount of health and deal no more damage than the normal variety, similarly to the Moblins of Dark Hyrule Castle.
