Moldorm is a recurring boss character from the Legend of Zelda games that debuted as the first dungeon boss in The Legend of Zelda: A Link To The Past in 1991 . It returned in the next Zelda game, LoZ: Link’s Awakening (1993) on the Game Boy where it is also one of the Nightmares that haunted Link in the game.  Moldorm reprised its role as a dungeon boss also in Four Swords Adventures (2004), A Link Between Worlds (2013) and Tri Force Heroes (2015).

Beside the Moldorm Boss character, there are also smaller Moldorms, usually called Mini Moldorm that are common enemies and appeared in the first Legend of Zelda game already. 

The usual tactic to defeat the Moldorm is to hit its Trail and avoid the big body of the centipede like creature.
