Digdogger is a boss originating in The Legend of Zelda. He is sea urchin with a big red eye in the middle. He can be separated into three defeat-able parts by blowing the whistle. In The Legend of Zelda, his weakness is described as "Digdogger hates certain kind of sound". He reappears in Oracle of Seasons.


The Legend of Zelda

The Digdogger appears in Lizard and Demon dungeons. If the player uses the recorder when the first one is encountered, he shrinks. The second one splits into 3 pieces. Once the Digdogger is smaller, the sword must be used to finish it off.

Oracle of Seasons

The Digdogger appears as the boss of Unicorn Cave. Using the Magnetic Gloves, the player smashes the Digdogger with a giant spike ball. After enough damage, it will split and must be independently killed


  • The Digdogger's design is said to be heavily based on Boss Uniras from Vs. Clu Clu Land.
  • In the Japanese version of the game, you must yell into the controller's microphone to stun it, though this was removed is the NES version as the NES Controller does not have a built-in microphone.
  • Vitreous, the boss of Misery Mire from A Link to the Past, is called ゲルドーガ (Geldogger) in Japanese. The suffix "-dogger," in addition to its eyeball appearance, connects it to Digdogger.
