Ball and Chain
Puppets follow Link wherever he goes in the Sacred Grove. Link originally encounters them when he enters the Sacred Grove to retrieve the Master Sword, and they are summoned by the Skull Kid to chase him, as they move quickly. The Skull Kid also summons them while he is fighting Link personally. After fighting the Skull Kid, they can be found by rolling into trees and knocking them down.
These enemies attack by flailing their arms and bodies against Link. They tend to cluster together, enabling Link to hit many of them with one attack. They usually appear in groups of four, and can be defeated using the sword or the Ball and Chain. Their primary mode of transportation is an eerie dance as they float towards Link. Interestingly, the Puppets will float over water if Link dives under.
