Super Smash Bros. Brawl
Hyrule Warriors series
Link must fight King Dodongo in a room with a lava pit in the middle. King Dodongo attacks by sucking in a massive amount of air to blow out fire, or by rolling into a ball and attempt to run Link over. While it is sucking in air, Link can take out one of his own Bombs, or one from a Bomb Flower nearby, and throw it into its mouth. The explosion will cause him to get stunned, moment when it is vulnerable to Sword attacks. It then rears up, rolls into a ball, and tries to run over Link. In order to avoid this, Link can either stand on the small slope between the lava and the arena, stand in one of the corners, or simply hide beneath or behind the Shield. When King Dodongo hits a wall at the other end of the arena, it unfolds and repeats the process again.
When defeated, King Dodongo curls into a ball and rolls into the lava pit, frying himself to a crisp, leaving a Heart Container.
- King Dodongo and Volvagia share a battle theme that is different from the one that plays for all the other bosses in Ocarina of Time.
- King Dodongo has the lowest amount of health in Ocarina of Time. It can be defeated with two Jump Attacks while using Deku Sticks.
