Ocarina of Time

Majora's Mask

In Majora's Mask, Blue Tektites can be found in the Snowhead Region and in the depths of the Great Bay Temple. As with their standard counterparts, their main mode of attack is to jump at Link. While on ice, they may uncontrollably spin on the surface of the ice and potentially hit Link. In the Snowhead Region, they possess the ability to hide themselves under the snow that has covered the region and will jump out at Link if he approaches. However, their position can easily be determined by the clouds of snow that appear where they hide as well as a scratching noise.

They are a stronger variant of Tektite, and possess a unique attack pattern as they move every two beats, crouching for one beat before jumping on the next beat. However, they can only move diagonally and possess a short jump, being only able to hop onto short cliffs and other objects one block at a time.
