Forgot to explain my choice.
Redeads are scary, but they dont move too fast, and Adult Link can easily avoid them. Kid Link can too once the sun song is obtained. And if they start humping you to death, you don't have to watch in agony, you can just mash A to get them off. Works with either Link.
Like likes have their way of making you want to pull your hair out. Expensive shield and tunic...gone in a flash. But unlike wallmasters, they stay in one visible spot. I'd rather be able to see the menace and proceed with caution than all of a sudden be back at the beginning of the dungeon.
