Moinks are Animals in Spirit Tracks.[1]


Moinks can only be found while riding the Spirit Train. They resemble a white pig with black spots on their body. Link can blow the whistle to scare them while on the Spirit Tracks. If the Spirit Train crashes against a Moink, it will turn red and charge at it. The same will happen if Link shoots one with the Cannon. Moinks disappear after obtaining the Ocean Rail Map.


Moinks gets their name from "moo" and "oink," as they appear to be a pig with cow spots.
