Jackaroos[1] are enemies in Zelda's Adventure.


Jackaroos are dinosaurian-like enemies that bare a slight resemblance to Velociraptors. They are only encountered in the Shrine of Illusion; first when Zelda slides down a slide into a cage containing a group of them at the beginning of the Shrine, and again in another cage just before the boss room where Pasquinade is fought. Like most enemies in the game, Jackaroos simply wander aimlessly around their enclosure while making roaring sounds. They can easily be defeated with three strikes of the Wand.
