Glutko (pronounced /ˈɡlʌtkoʊ/ GLUT-koh)[1] is the fourth boss in The Faces of Evil. He is located in the Glutko area.


Glutko is a gluttonous cyclops who is a minion of Ganon. He is encountered at his Face of Evil, the Glutko area. There he consumes Koridians alive with no remorse. Following the advice of Droolik, Link defeats Glutko by throwing a Bomb into his mouth, causing the cyclops to explode. He is encountered again at the Shrine of Koridai on the summit, where he guards the Book of Koridai. He is fought and defeated the same way.


  • Glutko is similar to The Wand of Gamelon boss Omfak. Both are plot-significant bosses who guard items at a Shrine that are necessary to defeat Ganon, and are known for their gluttonous behavior.


Glutko's name is derived from the word glutton or gluttonous, referring to his voracious and greedy appetite and behavior.
