Darkhammer is the mini-boss of the Snowpeak Ruins in Twilight Princess.[2]


Midna's Advice

Eee hee hee! See you later!


Doesn't he know how dangerous that is, swinging a big metal ball around in such a small place? It's too dangerous to get close to him, so let's use the ceiling to get over to his other side!
(After he throws the ball the first time)

Hey, look at his backside... He's covered in strong armor all over, but his tail's exposed! After he throws that ball, do you think you could get behind him and whack his tail over and over?

(Remainder of battle)

That's the way! Go for him after he throws that ball!

Darkhammer will continuously guard his body with his massive Ball and Chain. In order to defeat him, Link must Clawshot a target behind Darkhammer as soon as he starts swinging his weapon. Darkhammer will then pause to pull in his weapon, giving Link the opportunity to attack his exposed tail. Link can also roll behind Darkhammer while he is swinging the Ball and Chain or after his attack lands. Darkhammer can be defeated in a single hit with the Mortal Draw.

When defeated, Darkhammer drops his Ball and Chain, which can picked up by Link.


  • Darkhammer resembles an armored Lizalfos. His German name, Armoralfos, also suggests this.
  • His armour also bears some similarity to the suits of armour that line the halls and rooms of the dungeon.
