Doomknockers are similar in appearance to the Iron Knuckle, but they attack by throwing spiked clubs horizontally towards Link. Unusually, these clubs will act like Boomerangs, and fly back towards the Doomknocker after being thrown. These attacks cannot be blocked with Link's shield unless he uses the Reflect magic, so the best technique to destroy a Doomknocker is to use the Down Thrust technique after dodging their projectiles with jumps.
This enemy's Japanese name (ヘルグーマ) translates as "Hell Guma", a name shared with Guma, an enemy in the same game which has attacks and movement that are similar to the Doomknocker.
