A Dynalfos in Twilight Princess
|Habitat(s)||Gerudo's Training Ground|
Temple of Time
Ball and Chain
Dinolfos are a recurring lizard-like enemy in The Legend of Zelda series.
Characteristics and Weaknesses
Dinolfos are armored saurian enemies that serve as a stronger variant of Lizalfos, which they are similar in appearance to. They are, however, physically larger and more menacing than Lizalfos, boasting spikes across their bodies, and the weapons wielded by them range from blades to axes. Also, they tend to confront Link alone rather than in pairs, as their weaker counterparts do.
Ocarina of Time
In Ocarina of Time, Dinolfos appear in the Gerudo's Training Ground and in Ganon's Castle. They fight identically to Lizalfos. They can be defeated by using the Shield to block their hits, and then attacking with the Sword once they let their guard down.
In Majora's Mask, one first appears as the mini-boss of the Woodfall Temple, where Link must defeat it to receive the Hero's Bow. They are slightly different from their Ocarina of Time incarnation as they use different blades, wear different armor, and are able to breathe fire. They are also slightly weaker.
In Twilight Princess, Dinolfos are called Dynalfos. They appear in the Temple of Time. They can be easily beaten by counterattacking with Hidden Skills, and are susceptible to the Shield Attack and the Helm Splitter. They can also be pelted with Bomb Arrows from a distance, however these will only work before they can spot Link. The Ball and Chain can also be used to get through their shields, allowing Link to easily hack away with the Sword.
It is difficult to perform the Ending Blow to Dynalfos, as they are quick to jump back onto their feet once knocked down. It is still possible to execute however provided if Link is fast enough.
