- "As long as I'm underground, your attacks don't scare me!"
- — Subterror
Subterror is the mini-boss of the Moonlit Grotto, the third dungeon in The Legend of Zelda: Oracle of Ages. Inhabiting the sands of the dungeon, it propels itself under the soil of its lair with its strong forearms and drill-like nose. When Link gets within range of the mole, it flings its nose out of the sand, attempting to spear him to death. Link destroys the creature by digging it out of the sand with the use of his shovel, and then slashing it with his sword.
