Ocarina of Time
In Ocarina of Time, Gohma Larva are first found hatching from eggs which drop from the ceiling Inside the Deku Tree. At the end of the dungeon, Queen Gohma will hatch some to fight for her during the battle. These arachnids appear more frequently in Master Quest. In this version of the game, they appear in Dodongo's Cavern, as well, whereas they are only present Inside the Deku Tree in the original.
The eggs from which Gohma Larva hatch, known as Gohma Eggs, inflict damage upon contact. However, they are easily broken. Link can destroy the eggs before they hatch by either shooting them from afar with the Fairy Slingshot or slicing them with the Kokiri Sword, which will kill the larva inside. The eggs will hatch when Link draws near them.
The Larva's single eye will turn red as it prepares to pounce. It is a relatively weak enemy, given that it only appears at the beginning of the game when Link is a child. Hitting it once will cause it to cry and run away for a short distance. The second hit will kill it.
Oracle of Seasons
In Oracle of Seasons, Gohma Larva only appear in the Dancing Dragon Dungeon during Gohmas boss fight. Once Link destroys Gohma's Claw, she'll occasionally fire them at Link. They can easily be defeated with the Sword.
Gohma Larva, as well as Young Gohma, also make an appearance in Twilight Princess within the Temple of Time. Young Gohma have somewhat more developed forms, having four legs, but they are still rather easy to fend off. Gohma Larva, also called Baby Gohma, are an even smaller version of the Young Gohma. These spiders appear as small round bodies with tiny protruding legs and the traditional single eye on the front. They are seen in parts of the Temple of Time and travel in huge swarms of at least thirty. Taking them out at first becomes troublesome as they run away continuously, and the combination of their small size and large numbers makes eliminating every last one in a swarm difficult. If L-targeting is used to target a single one, other ones will come from behind and do damage. Once Link obtains the Dominion Rod and seizes control of the statue in the same room he obtains the rod, using the statue to kill the Baby Gohmas becomes much easier for him. They also hatch from Gohma eggs when Link encounters the boss of the Temple of Time, Armogohma. They behave differently though, and instead of running away, they will attempt to swarm Link as a distraction to give Armogohma enough time to release her laser-beam attack upon him. They will also try to protect Armogohma when she changes into her eyeball form.
- The Gohma Larvae in Twilight Princess resemble Mitites from Pikmin 2 in both appearance and movements.
