Toadpolis are recurring enemies in The Legend of Zelda series.[note 1][2][name reference missing]


Toadpolis are armored, two-legged Frogs-like enemies that are found in watery areas, swimming in Water. They act very similarly to Octoroks. They spit projectiles at Link which he can slice with his Sword or deflect them back, defeating the Toadpolis. If Link comes too close to them, they dive back under the Water.

Toadpolis grow into Deku Toads after a thousand years.[3]

Other Appearances

Link's Crossbow Training

In Link's Crossbow Training, Toadpolis appear in the "Battle on Zora's River" level of Stage 2.


Their name may be a combination of the word "toad" and the word "polliwog," which is a synonym for "tadpole."
