Puffstool DYKG 1

The sprite above is easily recognizable to any Zelda fan who has played through the first dungeon of The Minish Cap; however, the enemy on the left comes from a different video game universe. Believe it or not, these two adversaries share something in common other than looks.

Both spore spraying enemies are known as Puffstools, with The Minish Cap Puffstool being a direct reference to the Puffstool boss from Pikmin. Now it’s up to Zelda theorists everywhere to determine how this little, red fungi stumbled into Hyrule.
