In the original Legend of Zelda, what's the most efficient way to kill a Pols Voice ghost?

Seriously. That's a creepy bugger.

On the original Famicom, it was possible using the built-in Mic, but that method appears to be unworkable nowadays.

Regular weapons (ie sword and boomerang) prove rather ineffective.

To clarify: Swords work. (Boomerangs don't.) Swords aren't the fastest/easiest method, though. – TOOGAM 2 days ago

Since the NES lacks the Mic that the Famicom has, the Pols Voices were given a weakness to Arrows to compensate.

So basically, use arrows, that should kill them, and tadah, no more creepy rabbits.
