Magunesu are enemies in Oracle of Seasons.[1]

Characteristics

Magunesu are disk-like creatures with a blue face and a red face, each one side of the same disk. Each face has a different magnetic polarity than the other. The northern red face is attracted by southern polarity while the southern blue face is attracted by northern polarity. Magunesu will regularly change faces to confuse Link. When they change their polarity, they will spit a fireball at Link, often used when fleeing from his Sword. A conjunction of the Magnetic Gloves and the Sword is almost required to defeat these enemies.

    Magunesu live in Unicorn's Cave in Oracle of Seasons. These spherical monsters fire projectiles while keeping their distance and will flee if approached, so Link's best strategy is to draw them near using his Magnetic Gloves."
