Habitat(s)Deepwood Shrine
Effective Weapon(s)Gust Jar

Puffstool is a Minish-sized monster that is quite easy to defeat, although it often lies within the dust that slows Minish Link down. Puffstools normally have red caps, and are near-invincible in this state. When Link uses the Gust Jar on it, it turns gray and with a few sword slashes it should be defeated. Puffstools appear in a variety of places, like dungeons and caves, often hiding in the dust for a surprise attack. When they shake, their spores accumulate as more dust, which can be cleared with the Gust Jar.

Appears in Deepwood Shrine. These mushroom beasties scatter spores all over dungeons. When their caps are red, they are invincible.


  • The Puffstool shares its English name with the Puffstool from Pikmin. However, in Japan the Pikmin enemy is known as Bokenameko, while the Zelda monster is known as Powāru. The identical names are likely a fault of localisation rather than any direct reference.
  • The Japanese name for this enemy, Powaru, is a portmanteau of the word poware, meaning pan-fried, and warui, meaning evil.
