“I felt something behind me, but I turned around and nothing was there...Next thing I knew, the sand in the hourglass was powerless...”

Wizzrobes[1] are enemies in The Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass that appear in the Temple of The Ocean King. They first appear on on the 4th visit, on floor B9 when Link enters through the east staircase, though on subsequent visits they will appear when he comes from the west staircase. They are invisible normally, but appear as skulls on the map, similar to minibosses. When visible, they resemble scythe-wielding, purple-robed creatures with orange, vulture-like hoods. When Link is outside of a safe zone and close to one, it will act similar to a Boo in the Super Mario series. If Link is facing away from it, it will turn partially visible and pursue him with a noisy warping sound. They move in a zig-zag pattern and float above the ground and pits, even able to travel through walls. If Link faces one, however, it will hold still while staying invisible and waiting for him to approach. Once they get close to him, they fully appear and swing their sickles while lunging forward, which will subtract 15 seconds from the Phantom Hourglass. Regardless of whether or not they hit, they will typically teleport back to their original spot after this. They can be easily defeated with a single hit from any weapon, including the Boomerang, even while invisible. When defeated, they sometimes give 30 more seconds to the hourglass.
