Ropes are poisonous snakes that charge at any target posing a threat to their territory. They are easily dispatched with most conventional weaponry like the Sword and Bow. Unlike most enemies throughout The Legend of Zelda series, Ropes have changed relatively little in attack pattern and appearance.

They'll come straight for you if they
spot you. Just swing your sword when
they charge at you.
Ropes appear in The Minish Cap as fast-moving green snakes, much like their appearance from Four Swords. They are common in Castor Wilds and the Wind Ruins, and appear less frequently in Caves across Hyrule.

- If Link defeats 10 enemies without getting hit or teleporting with the Flute, then the 10th enemy defeated will drop five Rupees. However, if the 10th enemy is defeated with a Bomb, then it will drop four Bombs. If Link defeats 16 enemies without getting hit or teleporting, then the 16th enemy will drop a Fairy. After the 16th enemy, Link must get hit and reset the counter to zero in order to achieve this effect again. Defeating Armos, Like Likes, Keese, or Gels will not be counted.

- "Zelda turns just as a huge snake-like neck rises up from a hole in the ground. 'A rope snake!' she cries. The giant serpent slithers forward, its cold eyes flashing and its great, forked tongue whipping out between its fangs. Zelda grabs for her bow, but before she can get it, the monstrous snake throws a coil around her arms. 'Help!' she screams." (The Crystal Trap (Archway) pg. 52)
