Goponga Flowers are enemies that inhabit Spool Swamp and Goponga Swamp, the latter of which is named after them.[1]


Goponga Flowers will damage Link if he comes into contact with them. In Link's Awakening, they are BowWow's favorite food,[2] and letting him eat them is the most effective way to get rid of them.

In Oracle of Seasons and Oracle of Ages, Goponga Flowers can generate and fire flame-like spherical projectiles from their core when prey or a threat has entered their domain.

Giant Goponga Flowers are larger variations of these plants which, unlike their smaller counterparts, can be found exclusively in Goponga Swamp.
