The Adventure of Link
These flies dwell in Eastern Hyrule, often found in plains and swamp areas and on Maze Island. They buzz around erratically, carrying rocks that they will drop onto Link. They will also crash into him when flying low enough. To defeat them, Link must use the Up Thrust or a well timed hit with the sword. They are not particularly strong, but they are bothersome, especially when combined with other enemies such as Tektites.
The Minish Cap
In The Minish Cap, Pestos are Minish-sized enemies, around the size of normal flies. They now appear in two different colors with different attack patterns: the red Pestos attack by flying at Link, while blue Pestos attack by dropping dirt balls upon him. The attack of a blue Pesto covers Link in earth, making him dirty, and can encourage Moldworms to attack. If Link throws bombs at a blue Pesto, the Pesto can pick it up and drop it back at Link. Using Remote Bombs, Link can defeat a blue Pesto by detonating the bomb while the Pesto is carrying it. Like their original appearance, Pestos will also pick up and drop rocks on Link.

||Appears in Minish roads, dungeons, etc. There are red and blue ones. The blue ones are stronger and throw things down on your head|
- While Link is in his normal size, two tiny Pestos can be seen on Mount Crenel. These Pestos have no effect on Link.
