- Not to be confused with Big Octo.
The Big Octorok, also known as Giant Octorok, is the Boss of the Temple of Droplets in The Minish Cap and guardian of the Water Element.
Though simply a typical Red Octorok to a normal-sized Link, when Minish-sized, this mediocre creature becomes gargantuan. When encountered, it is frozen in the Temple of Droplets' central room, in close proximity to the frozen Water Element. After Link flips two giant Switches, a hatch on the ceiling opens wide, allowing sunlight to thaw both the frozen Boss and the Element. Before Link can claim the Water Element, the Big Octorok sucks it up and retreats into the next room.

|Appears in the Temple of Droplets. Frozen solid by the power of the Water Element. He's been frozen so long that his hunger is unbearable.|
Link must use the Big Octorok's rock-spitting tendencies against it to inflict damage by deflecting the rocks with his Shield. It will also try to suck Link up, and will ram the walls, causing rocks to fall from the ceiling.
After a few hits, the Big Octorok will freeze itself and all of the water covering the floor, and the budding flower on its back becomes vulnerable. Link must run to the Big Octorok's backside and set the flower on fire with his Flame Lantern. Repeating this process a few times will complete the battle; Link will receive the Water Element along with another Heart Container.
In the Spanish translation, the Figurine is called "Ferrus negro", the name for Black Knights. The actual Black Knight Figurine is named "Blacknut" instead.
