Gūma is an enemy in The Adventure of Link.


Gūmas resemble giant bulls and constantly hurl chain hammers in an upward arc. If Link can get under the arc of the attacks, he can strike without being hurt. They are common throughout Parapa Palace.

Non-canon Appearances

Captain N: The Game Master

A monster resembling a Gūma briefly appears in the "Quest for the Potion of Power" episode of Captain N: The Game Master. As Link, Princess Zelda and Kevin are making their way through the Parapa Palace, a Gūma throws a hammer at Link's hand, which causes him to drop his sword. Before the Gūma has another chance to attack, Kevin defeats the foe using his Zapper.


  • This enemy's name can also be transcribed as "Gooma", which is phonetically identical and the name given by the translation team to the boss of the Palace on the Sea in the International versions of the game.
  • Gooma's artwork was intended for Gūma in the Japanese version of the game before localization.
  • The Doomknocker's Japanese name (ヘルグーマ) translates to "Hell Gūma."
