Orb Monsters are found exclusively in the Color Dungeon. After being hit with a Sword, they can be picked up by using the Power Bracelet. Link must throw the Orb Monsters into holes matching their respective colors and shapes.[note 2] When all of them are placed correctly, they vanish while spawning either a Treasure Chest or a Small Key.

- Orb Monsters were referred to as Karakoro in The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening DX — Prima's Official Strategy Guide by Prima Games. However, as this contradicts the name given in Encyclopedia, it is not considered Canon.
- In Link's Awakening for Nintendo Switch, both Orb Monsters and their corresponding holes bear geometric shapes to assist with color blindness. This feature was not present in Link's Awakening DX. Yellow-colored Orb Monsters also replaced Green Orb Monsters to assist with red-green color blindness.
