Ghinis are ghost enemies from The Legend of Zelda series. They mainly appear as normal enemies, if specifically unique to their region.


Ghinis take upon the stereotypical ghost appearance, a floating sheet white entity. They have also been given a few somewhat comical features, such as a single eye and a large tounge hanging out.

Their attack methods also tend to differ, in their earlier appearances, they simply wandered around Damaging Link by collision alone, in later games, they would even grab Link and strike him with their tounge until he broke free or died
