Sparks are recurring enemies in the Legend of Zelda series. They are brightly colored balls of flashing energy that usually cling to floors, torches, pots, blocks, and other permanent structures, around which they trace a revolving path. In some games, they are vulnerable to certain attacks; in others, they cannot be damaged. However, they can always cause harm to Link if touched. In the games in which Sparks can be killed, they will always respawn as soon as Link leaves and reenters the room. Sparks drop fairies when defeated in some games.
Sparks appear to be based on a similar enemy from the Mario Series that shared the same behavior and name.
This is the first game in which Sparks are found. They are colorful, usually appearing red, blue, or yellow. They cannot be killed, although if they scale around breakable objects such as skulls or jars, their movement can become restricted if the sets of objects they scale are dropped in quantity, this somewhat reduces their threat level.
Sparks in this game can be killed by sprinkling them with Magic Powder or striking them with the Boomerang. Notably, when defeated, they will always turn into a fairy. A giant Spark is found in the Face Shrine; although it will not actively attack Link, he will take half of a heart in damage if he touches it. The giant Spark cannot be defeated.
Like other Sparks, Sparks in the Oracle series can be defeated by striking them with the Boomerang. They will always leave Fairies upon defeat.
Sparks cling to walls. If they are struck by Link's Boomerang, they are defeated and turned into Fairies.
Sparks are purple and red, and cannot be defeated. They travel in groups or packs, which are known as Winders.
