The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker/Species/Korok

Koroks are a fictional race from the video game The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker.

They come from Forest Haven but can be found on various islands on the Great Sea.

The Koroks were once the human-shaped Kokiri, but when Hyrule was transformed into the Great Sea, they took on a more plant-like appearance, and become fearful of other people. They have wooden-like bodies (somewhat similar to the Deku Scrub) and wear what looks like masks made from various types of leaves, though they might be their actual faces. Koroks are very light, and can travel on the wind by using sprouts as propellers. They often make a hollow jingling sound when they move.

Unlike their Kokiri ancestors, who never left the Lost Woods for fear of dying, most of the Koroks actually spend most of their lives far away from Forest Haven, planting the seeds of the Great Deku Tree. Only returning to Forest Haven once a year for an annual ceremony held every year when the Great Deku Tree bears seeds.
