The Beamos is a recurring enemy type in the Legend of Zelda games by Nintendo and debuted in The Legend of Zelda: A Link To The Past (1991) for the Super Nintendo.

The Beamos returned in many different forms and designs in almost all later Zelda games including The Legend of Zelda: Hyrule Warriors (2014) which was their latest appearance so far.

It is sometimes impossible to defeat a Beamos and they are more like lifeless objects or traps which can be found in the dungeons. They are shooting lasers /beams at Link as soon as he stands still in a room for too long.
