Fokka are enemies in the NES video game Zelda II: The Adventure of Link. They're humanoid birds that wield a sword and shield that wear minor armor. Despite being birds, they seem to have no wings, though nevertheless have a beak and other bird-like attributes.
In the game, they were ordered to protect the Great Palace. They had similar fighting abilities to other enemies in the game, though were unarguably the best jumpers in the game, and were also the fastest, making them a challenge to ultimately defeat. They seem to have an unlimited supply of swords, as they'll oftentimes use them as projectiles and thrust them towards Link during intense engagements.
The name Fokka is a rough Japanese translation of the enemy, seeing that there is no official English translation for the creature.
