Magnet Monsters,[1] also named Magnetic Monsters,[1] are enemies which appear in The Legend of Zelda: Oracle of Seasons. They are encountered in two dungeons, the Unicorn's Cave and the Sword & Shield Maze. Magnet Monsters have a red face and a blue face, each having a certain magnetic polarity. The letter on a Magnet Monster's forehead indicates its polarity; the red face has an "N" (short for north), and the blue face has an "S" (short for south).

Link can use the Magnetic Gloves to manipulate a Magnet Monster's movements, although it often switches its face around in defense. A Magnet Monster attacks by spitting fireballs at Link. If the Magnetic Gloves are set to the same polarity as a Magnet Monster's face, it is pushed back, but if set to the opposite polarity, Link can draw the Magnet Monster toward him. He can then defeat the Magnet Monster by striking it with his sword, but has to be quick as the Magnet Monster tries to float away from him. They can also simply be chased into corners in certain areas to prevent them from fleeing, and thus beaten without the gloves.
