"I can't wait to bomb some dodongoes!"

                            - Link talking about dodongoes

Dodongoes are the Zelda relatives to Koopas. They live in every region of Hyrule and are enemies to Link and octoroks. They can also be easily bombed.


After Evil Link took over most of Hyrule in 2030, he tried to drive dodongoes into extinction by launching air strikes against known dodongo habitats and forcing all Hylians to bury bombs across the countryside. By the time Evil Link was assassinated in 2040, there were fewer than 9,000 dodongoes still living, most in the mountains of Koridai. Some conservationists started capturing dodongoes and relocating them to the mainland, but now everyone knew how easy it was to bomb them. There were only seven left, all in zoos, when the bombing of dodongoes was banned in 2355. Since then, their numbers have increased and they have been reintroduced into the wild.


  • Trim it to make Link say "dong" or "Dongo."
  • Link wants to eat octoroks, not dodongoes.
  • They like eating tomatoes.
