Overworld enemies are found all throughout Koholint Island, but not inside of dungeons or caves. You will mostly encounter them in between dungeons. Enemies found only in Kanelet Castle also fit into this category.

|Pirahna||Pokey||Sand Crab||Sea Urchin|

Dungeon enemies are found in dungeons, as well as caves and underground passages. You will not encounter them while walking around Koholint Island. Typically, they can be defeated much more easily after obtaining the dungeon's weapon.
|Angler Fry||Arm-Mimic||Blooper||Bombite Green|

Traps are enemies that typically cannot be defeated with your sword or normal items alone, although they sometimes do have a weakness found much later in the game. They have various moving patterns, and in most cases, you are better off just running away to avoid getting damaged by them.
|Beamos||Blade Trap||Bubble||Flame Fountain|
|Giant Bubble||Mega Thwomp||Podoboo||Rolling Spike Trap|
Mini-Bosses are found in dungeons, as well as in mini-dungeons completed between dungeons. They do not respawn after defeating them. Inside a dungeon, defeating a Mini-Boss will usually create a warp point to the start of a dungeon, and sometimes leave a fairy behind.
|Armos Knight||Blaino||Blue Hinox||Dodongo Snakes|
|Giant Buzz Blob||Gohma||Grim Creeper||Hydrosaur|
|King Moblin||Master Strafos||Red Hinox||Rover|
|Spike Roller||Stone Hinox||Turtle Rock||Yellow Hinox|
Nightmares are the bosses of Link's Awakening. They are always found at the very end of a dungeon, and must be defeated in order to progress through the game (with the exception of Hardhit Beetle, who is in an optional dungeon). Defeating the first 8 Nightmares will earn you both a Heart Container and one of the Instruments of the Sirens needed to wake the Wind Fish.
|Moldorm||Genie||Slime Eye||Angler Fish|
|Slime Eel||Facade||Evil Eagle||Hot Head|
|Hardhit Beetle||Shadow Nightmare|
