Pestos are Minish sized enemies in The Minish Cap.


Pestos are around the size of normal flies. They appear in two different colors with different attack patterns: the red Pestos attack by flying down at Link, while blue Pestos attack by dropping dirt balls upon him. The attack of a blue Pesto covers Link in earth, which encourage Moldworms to attack. If Link throws Bombs at a blue Pesto, the Pesto can pick it up and drop it back at him. Using Remote Bombs, Link can defeat a blue Pesto by detonating the Bomb while the Pesto is carrying it.

Appears in Minish roads, dungeons, etc. There are red and blue ones. The blue ones are stronger and throw things down on your head.


  • While Link is in his normal size, two tiny Pestos can be seen on Mount Crenel. These Pestos have no effect on Link.
  • In Japanese, Pesto's name (プーン (Pūn)) is similar to the name of Boon (ブーン (Būn)), suggesting a link between the two monsters.
