Sparks are recurring enemies in the The Legend of Zelda series. They are usually represented as spherical enemies surrounded by a field of energy that hurt Link on contact. They are usually invincible but when they can be killed, their weakness is the Boomerang. Groups of Sparks are known as a Winder.


A Link to the Past


The Spark makes its first appearance as an enemy in The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past. In this game, they appear as balls of energy that can be red, blue or yellow. They are unkillable but since they can only move on walls, they can be trapped or restricted with jars or movable blocks.

Link's Awakening

The Oracles

In The Legend of Zelda: The Minish Cap, their appearance is quite different as they appear as floating jellyfishs surrounded with an electric field. They still cling to walls and can once again be defeated by the Boomerang for a Fairy. It is the only game in which the Winder and the Spark appears as different enemy as the Winders of this game are a row of fireballs while in every other games it is just a group of this game's depiction of a Spark.

Phantom Hourglass

The Winders of The Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks are the exact same as the ones from Phantom Hourglass in appearance. Their only difference comes from their new weakness to Arrows.
