- "They appear in various areas. They appear under rocks and grass. If they grab you, you won't be able to move. Swing your sword to get away."

Beetles are recurring enemies in the Legend of Zelda series.
Beetles will occasionally appear when Link digs a hole with the Shovel. During the battles with Façade in Oracle of Seasons, it will spawn Beetles to attack Link. Beetles move randomly about the area, attacking only by bumping into Link.
Beetles appear commonly beneath grass, rocks and pots, as well as within patches of dirt that are destroyed with the Mole Mitts. They are also spawned in the battle with Mazaal. When Beetles grab hold of Link, he is heavily slowed down and unable to use any items until they are removed.
