The Only Legend Of Zelda Enemy That Appears In Every Game
While “The Legend of Zelda” series has plenty of recognizable enemies such as the Moblins and Octorok, most of them only show up in a select few games. Lynels and Ganon himself are absent from more than a few entries despite being so iconic, but there is one enemy that has shown up in every “The Legend of Zelda” title without fail.
The Stal, skeletal creatures that often attack Link in dark dungeons and the dead of night, have a presence in every title. While Stalfos — undead Hyrulean soldiers — are the most common variations, a vast array of creatures fall under the "Stal" category, including Stalhounds, Staldras, and the Stallord.
As the official "The Legend of Zelda Encyclopedia" reads: "If a monster carries the name 'Stal,' it is undead and often little more than shambling bones." Every mainline game, from the 1986 original to 2017's "The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild," contains at least one "Stal" enemy, whether it be Stalchildren, Stalkoblins, Stalmoblins, or Stalizalfos.
