Remlits are a race from The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword. They are cat-like creatures kept as pets by the inhabitants of Skyloft. During the day, Remlits are friendly and docile; however, at night they transform into vicious, demonic creatures that will attack Link on sight. Remlits are capable of both swimming and flight, the latter of which is performed by flapping their large ears to remain airborne. If picked up and thrown, a Remlit will always land on its feet; if thrown off the edge of Skyloft, it will fly back to safety. Remlits generally appear in the same area in both their day and night forms, albeit in slightly different positions.
Gaepora is the owner of Mia, the only named Remlit. A group of five Remlits can be seen near the Statue of the Goddess in Skyloft after Link obtains the Clawshot. There is no known reason for this, but if Link plays the Goddess Harp for them, they will sing along to Link's strumming. Once Batreaux turns into a human, the curse placed on Skyloft is lifted, preventing Remlits from transforming at night.
At night, Link can keep hostile Remlits at bay by using a Shield Bash to stun them when they lunge, or by slashing them repeatedly with his sword, causing them to run away and cower. During the day, if Link draws one of several items, Remlits will run away, and if struck they will cower. Remlits can never be defeated as one would an enemy, regardless of their current form.
The name Remlit may be a reference to the titular characters from the film Gremlins, somewhat similar-looking creatures who transform into monsters under certain conditions.
