(1 of 2) A Stalfos in the Skyview Temple.

A Stalfos in the Skyview Temple. (left), Slash along the gap between their weapons. (right)

Stalfos are skeleton-like enemies that wield two large swords, which they use both to block and to attack.

They have three main attacks. They can quickly swing one sword horizontally, perform a cross-chop with both swords, or raise both swords above their head in preparation for a powerful two-part attack.

Location Spoils
Skyview Temple, Sky Keep Rupees

How to Defeat

Much like Bokoblins, you must attack from specific directions that are unprotected, requiring good timing and accurate sword slashes.

Also, the Stalfos is defenseless while its swords are above its head, so this is your chance to run around behind it and slash away.
