Miniblins are similar to Bokoblins, but are smaller and weaker. They carry tiny pitchforks and appear in groups, which can be quite annoying. In Phantom Hourglass, you can receive red Rupees for defeating them. They can be temporarily distracted with All-purpose Bait though, which is quite useful when facing particularly large groups. In the Wind Waker a single sword slash can defeat them but they will keep spawning in the same place until you move away from there spawn point.
