Phantom Hourglass

Winders are electrically charged and travel along walls in Phantom Hourglass. Touching one will shock and damage Link.

Spirit Tracks

Winders can be defeated by firing an Arrow at their heads in Spirit Tracks. They can also damage Heatoises, as they are weak against Electricity.
