The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask – Peahat Papercraft

This Zelda Papercraft is the Peahat, based on the game The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask. The The Wind Waker – Peahat Papercraft. The Peahat is a common enemy that has recurred over different Zelda games. Generally, it has kept the same form, but its behavior and functions have changed drastically over time. It resembles a flower/plant-like creature, similar to a pineapple or bush, with leaves either at its base or top that function as helicopter blades, making it flight-capable.
The correct typography is Peahat, as confirmed by the official website, the manual for The Legend of Zelda, and the in-game Figurine Gallery of The Minish Cap. Pea Hat was used in Majora’s Mask.
Peahats are not much larger than Link, but are immune to almost all attacks while they are moving and their blades are spinning. To defeat them, Link must wait until they momentarily stop moving, at which point they become easy targets. The exception to this is if their movement is stopped by Link using the clock; if they were moving at the time that Link touched the clock and caused all of his enemies to freeze, the game regards the Peahats as still being in motion and they will take no damage from any attack.
Peahats tend to dwell in underground areas, and are identical to their Ocarina of Time counterparts, though far less in number. They are commonly found asleep and behave in the same fashion as a Peahat would during night.
In Ocarina of Time, Peahats got a major overhaul. They grew to ten times the size of Link, moved their blades to their base, and became solitary creatures. They were only seen in the southern and northern corners of Hyrule Field, away from the paths and crossroads, making encounters with them uncommon. During the night, they slept buried in the ground, only revealing the blossom on its top. During the day, they emerged. Only one Peahat is found in Majora’s Mask, in a hidden hole in Termina Field. Their behavior is also more passive and calculated, rather than randomly flitting about, when comparing to the precendents. When approached, they shoot up into the air and hover over Link using their helicopter-like leaves to stay aloft.
Then they will either spout Peahat Larva from their blossom, which buzz around Link like insects and attack, or they will swoop down and attack him with their blade-like leaves. If attacked at night, Peahats will only spout Peahat Larva and not emerge.
A Peahat’s vulnerable point is the root, so a well-aimed shot at its bottom with a slingshot or bow will take it out. Its spinning blades make it nearly invulnerable to a sword or other melee attack, but it is possible the destroy with repeated slashes to the root if Link manages to get past their spinning blades. Peahats can also be killed during the night in Ocarina of Time by continuously exploding bombs at close range. However, using bombs will provoke the Peahats into releasing Peahat larva, which will attack Link with no mercy.
It is confirmed to be the only creature in Ocarina of Time capable of dropping two different types of loot at the same time, although it does this on an uncommon basis.
