Golden Monsters is the general term for the many golden enemies that appear in several games of the series, debuting in Oracle of Seasons. The specifics vary in each game, but they are consistently much harder to deal with than their regular brethren, with improved speed, power or health. In return, the reward for defeating these rare monsters is substantially higher. Their appearance is usually tied to the activation of an event, such as a Kinstone Fusion in The Minish Cap. .[1]


Oracle of Seasons

The Old Man in gold robes

In summer, the water around Gnarled Root Dungeon recedes, revealing a cave with a golden-robed Old Man inside. After Link talks to him, four different Golden Monsters will appear around various regions of Holodrum. When all four have been defeated, Link can return to the old man to receive a Magic Ring which, when appraised, becomes the mighty Red Ring.[2]

The Minish Cap

In The Minish Cap's Hyrule, three types of Golden Monsters appear after certain Kinstone Fusions. They are Octoroks, Tektites, and Ropes. They are much faster, can take more damage, and dish out more damage, but their basic attack pattern remains the same. After one is defeated, they will drop a large sum of Rupees.

Breath of the Wild

In The Master Trials DLC of Breath of the Wild, Golden Bokoblins, Moblins, Lizalfoss and Lynels appear as a higher rank than Silver enemies. They can only be found in Master Mode. Unlike the other variants, Golden enemies have a stronger resistance to status damage such as Shock, Freeze and Burn. They can recover being shocked faster, thaw out of ice faster and hardly flammable.
