The Moblins are a type of recurring enemies in the Legend of Zelda series. They made their debut as common enemies in both the Overworld and the Dungeons of the first Legend of Zelda, there are also a few friendly Moblins in the first game that will support Link with Rupees if he can find them.

The Moblins returned in the majority of all Legend of Zelda games and are usually rather weak enemies in the handheld Zelda titles while they are a lot more difficult and bigger in the Legend of Zelda games on consoles since The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time (1998).

They use mainly Spears and Clubs as their weapons but some Moblins can also use ranged weapons.
