|First appearance||Twilight Princess (2006)|
Cave of Ordeals
Ball and Chain
Stalkins are enemies from The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess. They are small reanimated skeletons, similar to Stalchildren and Stalfos. They appear in the Arbiter's Grounds and Cave of Ordeals, where they attack Link in swarms by stabbing him with their spears. However, their defense is weak, and only one sword strike is needed to defeat them. Using the Spin Attack when encircled by Stalkins will decimate most of the hordes. The Ball and Chain is also very effective when attacking hordes of them.
In one place, Stalkins will continuously reappear out of the sand until Link lights the Torches in an area, so it might be that they hate light, fire, or both.
