A Link to the Past
In A Link to the Past, Terrorpins will slowly close in on Link, dishing out damage just from contact. Basic forms of attack will not have much effect on them, but a pound of the Magic Hammer anywhere near them will cause them to flip onto their backs, revealing their weak underside and forcing them to become immobile. Their exposed belly is vulnerable to nearly any form of attack, but if they go undefeated, Terrorpins will hop onto their feet and chase after Link even faster. The shock wave from the Magic Hammer pound will also allow them to jump back onto their feet immediately if flipped. A Magic Hammer attack directly on top of them will instantly defeat them.
Four Swords Adventures
In Four Swords Adventures, Terrorpins appear in a variety of colors, as well as larger versions found in the Desert Temple. At Frozen Hyrule, the Links can play a minigame called Terrorpin Hockey where they have to flip over the Terrorpins and hit them to make Force Gems pop out.
In Phantom Hourglass, Terrorpins attack by spinning around and ramming into Link. They can only be defeated by slamming the ground near them with the Hammer, exposing their tender underbellies. After this, they can be defeated by use of any weapon.
A Link Between Worlds
In A Link Between Worlds, Terrorpins can be defeated by using the Hammer to flip them over and attacking them when they are vulnerable.
Tri Force Heroes
In Tri Force Heroes, Terrorpins are susceptible to the Magic Hammer. Some Terrorpins form Totems, appearing in stacks. Wallmasters in the Drablands Challenges can flip a Terrorpin by slamming upon or near one.
Terrorpin is a portmanteau of terror and Terrapin.
