- "This spirit bird is said to survive by eating flames. Due to its cautious nature, it can be difficult to approach. However, by catching and holding the bird's attention, some are able to successfully attack it. I suggest being wary of its curled tail."

Furnix are enemies from The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword. They are bird-like creatures that are encountered in the Ancient Cistern and other areas. They attack by breathing several fireballs in a random pattern in Link's direction, similar to Wizzrobes from The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker. Having the Wooden Shield or its upgrades equipped when a Furnix attacks is useless because it will burn if Link or the shield is caught on fire. To defeat them, Link must use his Whip to grab their tails and drag them to the ground, making them vulnerable to attack. Once Link drags the Furnix down, he can use the Fatal Blow to instantly defeat it. Alternatively, Link may use his Bow to attack them directly, which is generally a more viable tactic when there are multiple attacking him.
