An Octorok is an enemy in The Legend of Zelda series. His first appearance was in the video game The Legend of Zelda, where he would shoot out rocks at Link. Ever since then, they appeared as a regular enemy in every Legend of Zelda game (except, strangely, The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess), and has gotten the "number one Zelda enemy" from Nintendo Power.

Strategy and habits

Much like Deku Shrubs, Octorocks will shoot projectiles at Link. In the 2D games, Octorocks lived on land and need only be hit by a sword to meet their end. In 3D games however, they are shown to be the Deku shrubs of the sea, shooting projectiles and disappearing if link gets to close.

Notable Octoroks

  • Big Octo, is a reoccurring miniboss of the 3D games.


  • A Octorok is in a glass capsule in the Lakebed Lab. It is notable that it looks sad.
