A patch of Moving Grass
Location and Uses
Moving Grass appears in groups of nine and will animate and jump around several times when Link cuts a tuft of it. After a few jumps, Moving Grass will destroy itself, sending stray blades of Grass flying about. If Link is wearing the Keaton Mask while disturbing the grass, a Keaton will appear and quiz the young hero.
Moving Grass always drop one Green Rupee when slashed, but they will not drop anything if they destroy themselves. If Link can destroy all the tufts of Moving Grass before they disappear, they will drop a single Red Rupee.
