Dark Nyuudou
Habitat(s)Hero's Shrine

Dark Nyuudou are enemies in Freshly-Picked Tingle's Rosy Rupeeland that appear in the Hero's Shrine.


Only two of them appear and must be fought before Tingle and Teddy Todo will continue. They are an aggressive enemy and are stronger than Dark Bats but should be dealt with fairly easily. They drop Rupees when defeated. Only two appear in the whole game.


  • Dark Nyuudou, along with Dark Bats have a sketchy appearance, as if they were an animated drawing. They appear from nowhere once Tingle enters the room, similar to monsters appearing from clouds of smoke in the original The Legend of Zelda game.
  • Nyuudou is a Japanese word meaning "priest" or "monk", but also refers to a certain variety of bald-headed Yōkai, a monster in Japanese folklore.
