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

Puffstools have red caps and are near invincible in this state. If Link uses the Gust Jar on them, they turn gray, leaving them open to attacks. Puffstools appear in Deepwood Shrine and some caves. When they shake, they release spores that slow down Link. These spores can be cleared with the Gust Jar.


Puffstool's Japanese name is a portmanteau of ポワレ (poware) and 悪い (warui).
