Old Man

Gohma (ゴーマー Gōmā?) is a boss from The Legend of Zelda. It is a giant arthropod with a prominent single eye. Gohma appears as the boss of Level 6 and several times as the mini-boss of Level 8 during the First Quest. During the Second Quest, Gohma appears as the boss of Level 6 and as a mini-boss in Levels 5 and Level 7.


Gohma's hard shell repels all attacks, and its weakness is its large, single eye, which is vulnerable to Link's arrows. Due to this weakness, Gohma frequently keeps its eye closed, and attacks by shooting beams from a distance. There are both orange and blue Gohmas, the orange one requiring a single arrow hit to defeat and the blue ones requiring three. All the Gohma are blue except for the one that is the boss Level 6 in the first quest.
