Arurodas are scorpion-like enemies in The Adventure of Link.[1]

Characteristics

Arurodas usually keeps their eyes closed and often charge directly at Link, casting fireballs from their tails. These fireballs are normally unblockable and require the use of the Reflect Spell. Arurodas can only be harmed by attacking their single eye when open.

Nomenclature

In Japanese, Aruroda's name (アルローダ (Arurōda)) is similar to the name of Lowder (ローダー (Rōdā)), suggesting a link between the two. While "Arurōda" does lack one of the chōonpu present in "Rōdā", this is not unusual; for example, Leever has been named リーバー (Rībā) and リーバ (Rība) in different games.
