Key Master
First appearance The Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks
Variant of Floormaster
Zant's Hand
“Oh no! We've been caught! They're going to take the key back. We've got to get away from them!”
Princess Zelda, The Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks

Key Masters[1] are giant purple disembodied hand enemies in The Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks. They appear in certain locations when the Boss Key is taken and attempt to recover it, similar to the Zant's Hands from The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess. However, they come out of portals on the floor and walk on their fingers, similar to various appearances of Floormaster. Additionally, they each have a yellow eye in their palm. They only take a few hits to defeat, but since Link will be occupied by carrying the key unless Phantom Zelda is carrying it, they may become overwhelming. Additionally, they reappear in the same location they initially spawned from a few moments later. Unlike most non-miniboss and non-Phantom enemies, they appear on the map, marked with a skull.

Whenever they appear, the room starts alternating between red and blue lighting, thus resembling emergency lights. The music also changes to the Phantom pursuit music or a softer, more ethereal variation thereof, depending on the encounter. They continuously pursue and respawn until either they steal back the key, at which point they return it to its original spot, or the key gets successfully placed in the lock, at which point they disappear. They can first appear in the Forest Temple if Link disregards directions on a sign regarding a safe route to transport the key, though the first required appearance is the third visit to the Tower of Spirits. Here, the key is electrified, so Zelda must carry it.
