Attacks Link by flying straight down out of the sky. It has very little life power, but moves quickly and is hard to defeat.

In The Adventure of Link, the Moby is a type of orange bird found in swamps. It drops out of the sky and flies directly towards anyone in range of it. Link must use his sword attack just right so that he can hit it before it flies into him.[4] If Link is hit by the Moby, he loses experience points.

Other Appearances

The Legend of Zelda TV Series

A single Moby appears in the "Cold Spells" episode of The Legend of Zelda TV series. While Princess Zelda is inspecting Link's messy room, a Moby flies in through the open window and attacks her. Zelda hits it with a nearby jar and the Moby lands near Link's pile of dirty clothes, and when the princess pushes its head further in, it is so disgusted by the smell that it flies away.[2]

The Legend of Zelda (Valiant Comics)

Moby also appear in the The Legend of Zelda comics by Valiant Comics, although they play a rather minor role and are only featured in a few panels. They first make an appearance in "Missing in Action", where four Moby attack Princess Zelda and Link as they are making their way to the Island Palace. Another Moby is depicted in the first page of To the First Power as Zelda is getting ready to go train in the Underworld.

Zelda's Adventure

In Zelda's Adventure, Mobies appear as pink hued birds found in the Forest of Ogbam. Their only means of attack is to fly directly into Zelda, however they're fairly weak and can easily be defeated in a couple of hits.
