Bits are a species of mouthless amorph that roamed the western plains and cavern systems of the kingdom of Hyrule during the Era of Decline. As they were only ever recorded during this era, they are now considered to be extinct. They were closely related to the Zols of the same region.

EtymologyEdit

The specific name, "dini", was given in honor to Din, the Goddess of Power. While Bits are weaker than Bots (which are blue), the name was instead given in reference to their color, as Din's patron color is red due to her association with the Triforce of Power.

PhysiologyEdit

Gelatinous in nature and red in coloration, Bits are often considered to be "lesser Bots", as they have a weaker durability in their membrane, cannot hop (possibly due to this same weakened membrane issue), and were unable to merge together into a larger form. They are however faster in their crawling behavior than Bots are in their hops. They were significantly less common and may have already been going extinct at the time of their discovery. Notably small organisms, adventurers having to deal with them usually had to crouch to strike.

HabitatEdit

Bits were found in significant numbers within the West Hyrule plains. At least one cave in the Death Mountain area was known to house Bits as well.
