Moldworms are enemies in The Minish Cap.[1]


Moldworm (Figurine from The Minish Cap)

Appears in Minish roads.
They come out of the ground when they
sense prey. If you get swallowed, you'll
take damage and get all dirty!
Watch out, because when you're all
dirty, Pestos will come after you.

Moldworms only appear in Minish-sized areas. They crawl around and will attempt to consume Link; if he is eaten, he will be deposited at the other end of the Moldworm and exhibit a brown color on his skin and tunic, which gradually fades away. Moldworms seem to have a symbiotic relationship with Pestos; when Link has been eaten and deposited by a Moldworm, any Pestos in the area are attracted towards him, moving more quickly and attacking more frequently than normal.
