The Stal (Sutaru) is a denizen of the Dark World in A Link to the Past. This skull-like enemy usually blends in with its surroundings (regular skulls that can be tossed around), and will flash and begin pursuit if it senses a disturbance next to it. Stals have also been known to hide under tall grass in search of prey, although this is an uncommon case. The Stal will actively follow and hunt its victim unless the victim can run away from it or destroy it with such weapons as a sword. They appear to be the Dark World equivalent of Armos, due to their mannerisms.
