From Zelda Wiki, the Zelda encyclopedia
Three-of-a-Kind are enemies featured in Link's Awakening.
Characteristics and Weaknesses
Three-of-a-Kind scurry around in a room in groups of three, with alternating suits of cards shown on their chest (hearts, clubs, spades, diamonds), initially each having the same suit at the same time as the others. The way to defeat these enemies can be somewhat difficult. Link must start off by hitting one of them, which will cause it to halt and stop, showing one of the four card suits. Then, Link will have to hit the other two so the suits all match up. If they don't, they will all activate and start shambling around the room again. If all three of the enemies are killed with a suit of diamonds, they will each drop a Rupee. Also, if all three are killed with a suit of hearts, they will each drop a Recovery Heart.
One good way of defeating them is to charge up a spin attack and wait for them to all be in range; this will hit them all at the same time and ensure they are all on the same suit.
- The name Three-of-a-Kind is based on card games such as poker. In such card games, each card has a value and a suit. Usually, the term "Three of a Kind" is used only when three cards have the same value, but this enemy is only defeated when three of them have the same suit.
