Floormasters,(OoT | MM | OoS | OoA | TWW | FSA | TMC)[1] also known as Floor Masters,(TMC)[2] are recurring Enemies in The Legend of Zelda series.


Ocarina of Time

Floormasters hover over the ground and glow green before attacking in Ocarina of Time. A single Sword swipe will split Floormasters into three miniature hands that will regenerate into the main figure if given enough time. These small hands tend to grab hold of Link's neck, providing an opportunity for the others to jump on and deal auxiliary damage. Occasionally these enemies may also be invisible, requiring use of the Lens of Truth to see them.

You know the Floormaster, right? If you don't do something about its pieces before they can reunite...

Oracle of Seasons

Floormasters appear in the Gnarled Root Dungeon, Poison Moth's Lair, Ancient Ruins, and Onox's Castle in Oracle of Seasons. They appear from walls and take Link back to the beginning of their respective Dungeons.

Oracle of Ages

Floormasters appear in the Mermaid's Cave and the Ancient Tomb in Oracle of Ages. They appear from walls and take Link back to the beginning of their respective Dungeons.

The Wind Waker

I've spotted a Floor Master!

It's quick, but your sword can destroy it!

Floormasters will rise from the ground and try to grab Link in The Wind Waker. If the Floormaster succeeds, Link will be pulled to the beginning of the Dungeon. Link can defeat Floormasters by hitting them with his Sword, or by freezing them with Ice Arrows and subsequently smashing them with the Skull Hammer. Floormasters will pick up Vases, chairs, and other objects nearby to use as projectiles against Link, given he is within the foe's range.

Four Swords Adventures

Floormasters in Four Swords Adventures appear in the Lost Woods, and cannot be killed, but can be stunned briefly. If a Floormaster grabs Link, it will pull him into the Dark World.

The Minish Cap

Floormasters appear in the Palace of Winds and Dark Hyrule Castle in The Minish Cap. Unlike their Wallmaster counterparts, they are always visible in rooms. If a Floormaster touches Link, it will not deal any damage, but will return him to the beginning of the Dungeon. They can be defeated with a single Arrow.[note 1]


  • The Floormasters of The Wind Waker are the only kind that do not drag Link all the way back to the beginning of a Dungeon when grabbed. They instead take him a short distance back, or to the beginning of the room in question.
  • Some of the sounds Floormasters make in The Wind Waker were recycled from Majora.
