Gongoron is the son of Biggoron, the Chief Goron of Goron Island. At first, Gongoron resents Link being a Goron; however, once Link saves him, he appreciates Link. After Biggoron asks him to show Link the way to the Goron Temple, Gongoron goes into the temple and gets caught by monsters. When Link reunites with him, he is able control Gongoron during a part of the temple and during the boss fight.
Gongoron's Japanese name, Maigoron, is likely a portmanteau of 舞 (Mai), the Japanese word for "wheel" (fitting his ability to curl up into a ball and roll around), and "Goron."
