The Ball and Chain Soldier is a recurring enemy type in the Legend of Zelda games by Nintendo and debuted in the form of being the first miniboss in The Legend of Zelda: A Link To The Past (1991) for the Super Nintendo.

The Ball and Chain Soldier returned in almost all handheld Zelda games including The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds (2013) which was their latest appearance so far.

They appear in different colors like many of the enemies in the Zelda games.

The Ball and Chain soldier swings his chain, using the Ball as a deadly weapon and can also use it to defend himself as a shield. In general they are pretty easy to defeat enemies.
