Moths are recurring enemies in The Legend of Zelda series.

They are usually summoned by bosses or mini-bosses, such as by Odolwa, Shadow Hag or Mothula.


Majora's Mask

In Majora's Mask, Moths can be found throughout Woodfall Temple. They are commonly seen flying around lit torches, at which time they pose no threat to Link. However, if the young hero uses the torch to light a Deku Stick, they will follow the lit Deku Stick and attack Link if they come close enough. The Moths will continue to follow Link until either the stick burns up completely or it is put away.

Moths are also summoned by Odolwa. In this battle they are much more aggressive and will actively seek out the hero and harm him. If Link dons the Deku Mask and transforms into Deku Link, they will still follow Link but will be unable to damage him. Link can kill the Moths by throwing a Bomb or picking a Bomb Flower, which will cause the Moths to flock to the explosive. The resulting explosion will kill them. Alternatively, the hero can wait until Odolwa creates a ring of fire, which will cause the Moths to burn up.

Oracle of Ages and Oracle of Seasons

In Oracle of Ages, Moths are summoned by the Shadow Hag in the Moonlit Grotto. Once all of her shadows merge back into one, she releases these bugs to attack Link.

In Oracle of Seasons, Moths also appear during the battle with Mothula in the Poison Moth's Lair. Mothula is capable of summoning smaller Moths to attack Link during the battle. They fly around the room, attempting to hit Link and push him down the holes to end the battle, thus forcing Link to restart.
