Poison Mite are enemies in Twilight Princess.[1] They are small insects similar in appearance to a scarab beetle.

Characteristics

Found only in the Arbiter's Grounds, Poison Mites crawl over Link in swarms, slowing him down. They can be killed with the Spin Attack. They also can be kept at bay with the Lantern lit, causing them to form a circle around Link. They usually appear near quicksand in an attempt to drag him down faster.

Despite their name, they are not poisonous, and cause no damage to Link.

Trivia

  • Poison Mites bear similar traits with Morths.
