Big Blades,(OoS)[1] also known as Thorn Clusters,(ALttP)[2] are recurring Enemies in The Legend of Zelda series.[name references needed]


Big Blades are larger variants of Blade Traps. Instead of inheriting the same reactive behavior, some Big Blades may continuously move along a fixed path.

A Link to the Past

Oracle of Seasons

Big Blades appear in the Giant Blade Room in the Snake's Remains, in the Poison Moth's Lair, and in the Sword & Shield Maze.
