Found in the Arbiter's Grounds, the Poison Mites crawl over Link in swarms, slowing him down. They can be killed with the Spin Attack. They also can be kept at bay with the Lantern lit, causing them to form a circle around Link. They usually appear near quicksand in an attempt to drag him down faster. They bear similar traits with the Morths, from The Wind Waker.
Despite their name, they are not poisonous, and they cause no damage to Link.
- ↑ "As you reach the sand you're attacked by a swarm of disgusting Poison Mites. There are dozens of them! They don't harm you, but they slow you down, and if you're wading through sand, this can spell doom! Don't stop and fight or you'll sink! Struggle to solid ground then bring out your sword and execute a spin attack." (The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess Premiere Edition (Prima Games), pg. 288)
