Geldmen are recurring enemies in the Legend of Zelda series. They are desert-dwelling creatures that hide in the sand, attacking passers-by should they come too close. They appear to be somewhat humanoid, with a visible head, torso, and arms, which are possibly constructed out of sand.


The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past

Geldman Geldmen appear in the Desert of Mystery, surfacing from beneath the sand dunes at random times and then stalking Link for a short while before burrowing back down into the sand.

The Legend of Zelda: Four Swords Adventures

Geldmen can be found in the Desert of Doubt. Their attack patterns are exactly the same as in A Link to the Past, though they move slightly faster and make a low growling sound as they approach Link.

The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds

Geldmen appear exactly as they do in A Link to the Past, appearing in the same area with the same movement patterns. Unlike previous appearances, however, Link can see the rest of a Geldman's body. Through use of the Sand Rod Link can expose the lower half, where it will frantically run away, making it difficult to defeat upon doing so.
