Skullwalltulas,[1] also known as Walltulas,[citation needed] are recurring enemies in The Legend of Zelda series.


Ocarina of Time

Navi's Comment

Hey! Listen! Watch out!



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. These enemies 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. They resemble miniature versions of Skulltulas.

What?! You don't know?


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

That's a Skullwalltula.
...Just don't touch it, all right? (MM3D)

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 regional-exclusive pathway in the Deku Palace.

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.


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, Skullwalltulas 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 Skullwalltulas by making them follow him and then jumping at a wall without vines. Skullwalltulas do not inflict damage, though getting bitten by one will make Link's Stamina drop faster.


  • Skullwalltulas will only charge at Link if he moves while they are facing him. At all other times, they will ignore him.
  • In Ocarina of Time, when a Skullwalltula falls to the ground and before its body burns, the Megaton Hammer can be used to make the creature bounce, as if killing it again. By doing this, it is possible to juggle a Skullwalltula's body on the ground indefinitely.
