Kalle Demos (Pronounced /ˈkeɪl/ /dɛ moʊs/, KAYL de-moes) is the parasitic plant-monster Link encounters in The Wind Waker, living and sapping life out of the Forest Haven via its location deep in the nearby Forbidden Woods. Makar, in venturing too far from the Great Deku Tree in preparation for the Korok Ceremony, falls into the Forbidden Woods, and is swallowed whole by Kalle Demos; to rescue Makar becomes Link's primary motivation to enter the woods and face the parasite. Kalle Demos' physical appearance resembles that of an engorged Boko Baba, and its fighting style is reminiscent of Barinade, the parasite living within Lord Jabu-Jabu in Ocarina of Time.
Link must first snip the tentacles that anchor the boss to the ceiling with the Boomerang, causing it to fall to the ground. The beast then fully outstretches and explodes wide open, exposing the weak flower inside. Link must run in with his sword and hack at the flower, taking full advantage of the boss' Critical Point. Unlike most bosses in the Zelda series, this strategy needs only to be used once, considering Link makes use of all time available to slice at the weak flower whenever it is exposed.
Once Kalle Demos is defeated, Makar gives Link thanks for his service, and the latter yields a Heart Container before departing back to the Great Deku Tree. The boss reappears in Ganon's Tower, but is fought and defeated the same way.
