These poisonous snakes seem docile under normal circumstances, but will charge at targets that pose a threat to their territory. They are easily dispatched with most conventional weaponry. Unlike most enemies throughout the evolving Zelda series, the Rope has changed relatively little in attack pattern and appearance.

|Golden Rope (Figurine from The Minish Cap)|
|Appears in… Well, we’re not sure! The legendary Golden Rope. It’s much more aggressive than the normal ones: it will attack you on sight.|
Skullropes appears as a more worm-like monster with a skull for a head. This variety is only encountered in Dark World dungeon Thieves' Town in A Link to the Past. If Link pulls one particular lever in the dungeon, they will fall from above, much like regular Ropes did early in the game. Aside from their appearance, they are equal in strength and behave identically to normal Ropes.
In Tri Force Heroes, Skullropes are more commonly encountered than normal Ropes and require more hits to be defeated. They attack by jumping above the Links' heads and attempting to drop down onto them, rather than simply rushing toward them. The internal file names in Tri Force Heroes refer to Skullropes as Bubble Ropes.
- The Aneru from The Adventure of Link is commonly mistaken for a Rope, but its behavior and appearance is notably different.
- In Spirit Tracks the snake-like Whip has the same color as Ropes from The Legend of Zelda.

- If Link defeats 10 enemies without getting hit or teleporting with the Recorder, 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 Armoses, Like Likes, Keeses, or Gels will not be counted.

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)
