From Zelda Wiki, the Zelda encyclopedia
Magmanos is a hand-shaped enemy made out of molten lava featured in Skyward Sword.
Appearance and Features
The Magmanos emerges out of various fenced magma pits in the Fire Sanctuary with its palm facing upward. Link can take advantage of this position to reach higher areas by standing on various stone slabs, which the Magmanos will raise. To defeat these enemies, Link must solidify or in other words harden their bodies with water, which is usually in the form of Water Fruit. Once they are solid, he can defeat them with his standard arsenal of weapons. It is considered to be one of the two minibosses of the Fire Sanctuary. Most of the Magmanos lead to one of the captured treasure hunting Mogmas.
- Its name is a portmanteau of "magma" and "manus", the latter meaning "hands" in Latin.
- This is the only targetable enemy in Skyward Sword not given a spotlight in the official strategy guide. It is mentioned, but made out to be more like a trap, and is not named.
