Skullwalltula
Be careful not to touch it!

In Ocarina of Time, Skullwalltulas are found in many places where there is a collection of vines that Link can climb up. They wait for Link on the vines, then charge at him and knock him off when he attempts to climb. Skullwalltulas are easily dispatched with any ranged weapon such as the Slingshot, Boomerang, Bow, and Hookshot. They can also be knocked off by hitting the ground nearby with the Megaton Hammer. Skullwalltulas can be found Inside the Deku Tree, the Forest Temple, and several other dungeons.

What?! You don't know?

Skullwalltula

What?! Don't you know about the Skullwalltula? ...Just don't touch it, all right? (MM)

That's a Skullwalltula.

In Majora's Mask, Skullwalltulas appear only in a Grotto near the giant tree that bears the Skull Kid's drawing in Termina Field. In the Japanese versions of Majora's Mask, they also appear in a pathway in the Deku Palace exclusive to that version of the game.

Twilight Princess

In Twilight Princess, Walltulas can be found clinging to walls and vines in several places. They are easily dispatched with any ranged weapon, such as the Slingshot, Bow, or Clawshot.

Skyward Sword

Fi's Comment

A report, master.

Walltula

Found mostly in ivy and on walls, you can expect this creature to approach when it senses your presence.
The beast lives on other creatures' bodily fluids. A fully grown Walltula is several orders of magnitude more dangerous than a young Walltula.

In Skyward Sword, Walltulas can be found climbing on the vines of walls in several places. Link can easily take them out using the Slingshot or the Beetle. He can also defeat Walltulas by making them follow him and then jumping at a wall without vines. They do not inflict damage, though getting bitten by one will make Link's Stamina drop faster.
