- "Appears in Minish roads, dungeons, etc. There are red and blue ones. The blue ones are stronger and throw things down on your head."

Pestos are enemies from The Legend of Zelda: The Minish Cap. They resemble flying insects with two eyes, and appear in two different colors; red Pestos merely fly at Link to damage him, while blue Pestos drop objects on him. Blue Pestos, after dropping their object, will usually attempt to find a replacement, such as a nearby Pot.
They are usually encountered when Link has shrunk to Minish size; however, two Pestos can also be found on Mount Crenel when Link is his normal size. These particular Pestos are tiny compared to the regular-sized Link, and have no effect whatsoever on him.
One humorous way to defeat a Blue Pesto involves causing it to drop its dirt ball, luring it to pick up a Remote Bomb, and detonating the bomb while the Blue Pesto is carrying it. This does not work with a regular, timed Bomb, as the Pesto will simply drop the bomb before it explodes.
Pestos are presumably named after the term "pest", often used to refer to an irritating insect.
