Old Man
A Dodongo as it appears in-game

Dodongo (ドドンゴ Dodongo?) is a boss from The Legend of Zelda. This hulking dinosaur is the boss of Level 2. It closely resembles a Triceratops. Dodongo is vulnerable to smoke, produced by Bombs, as alluded to by the Old Man. Several Dodongos appear as mini-bosses in later dungeons, and are defeated in the same manner as the first.


Dodongo is vulnerable to Bombs, and if it ingests one, it will explode inside its stomach. Two bombs will kill the beast, giving Link the second piece of the Triforce of Wisdom. If Dodongo walks into the smoke of a bomb explosion, it will be stunned and become vulnerable to Link's sword.
