Blaino is a recurring character in The Legend of Zelda series, appearing as a mini-boss in Link's Awakening and as a minor character in Oracle of Seasons. Blaino is characterized by his boxing gloves and his fitting boxing-style he uses to fight Link in both his appearances.

Appearances

Link's Awakening

Blaino first appears as the mini-boss of Turtle Rock, the final dungeon of Link's Awakening. Link can defeat him with only his Sword, but Blaino is capable of blocking Link's attacks with his gloves, making it impossible for Link to attack him head-on. Being punched by Blaino sends Link back to the entrance of the dungeon. Although there are many mini-bosses in Turtle Rock, Blaino is the only one not to have appeared in previous dungeons, and is therefore the dungeon's true mini-boss. As such, a portal to the entrance appears upon his defeat.

Oracle of Seasons

In Oracle of Seasons, Blaino becomes a regular character capable of speech. He lives within his boxing gym in North Horon, and will challenge Link to a boxing match for 10 Rupees.[2] The mini-game is won by knocking him out of the ring (or lost by getting knocked out of the ring) using only fists, as items (or rings) are not allowed.[3] If Link attempts to use an item during the minigame, the match will automatically end. As punishment, Blaino will raise the price of a match to 20 Rupees.[4] The prize for defeating Blaino is 30 Rupees.[5]

On his adventures, Link must win back Ricky's Gloves by defeating Blaino in a boxing match. The gloves belong to Ricky, who lost to Blaino in a boxing match, consequently losing his gloves to the boxing champion.[1]
