Pestos are enemies in The Minish Cap.[1]

Characteristics

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.

Trivia

  • 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.
