Vultures are recurring enemies in The Legend of Zelda series.[1]


Much like many species of actual vultures, Vultures are usually found resting atop cactus found in the desert, or high ledges. Once they spot Link, they will take off and circle him. They will slowly close in on Link while following him, and will eventually move close enough to attack directly. In Four Swords Adventures, they are more aggressive, actively diving at the four Links after circling them for a short while.

Due to their speed and their evasive nature they can be hard to hit. However, they are relatively weak and can be destroyed with most weapons. Despite this, they can be a threat when multiple Vultures close in, or when combined with more immediate dangers such as the Geldman.
