Kargarok from Twilight Princess
|Spoils||Golden Feather (TWW)|
The Wind Waker
In The Wind Waker, Kargarocs are used by Ganon for surveillance and transportation of other monsters, such as Moblins, across the Great Sea. They can be easily defeated by shooting an Arrow or a Bomb from the Cannon. Kargarocs attack by headbutting Link. Link can collect Golden Feathers from defeated Kargarocs, of which he can give 20 to Hoskit in exchange for 100 Rupees and a Piece of Heart. These creatures bear a resemblance to the Helmaroc King, the giant bird that kidnaps Link's sister, Aryll.

Spoils: Golden Feathers
These fierce and dangerous opponents often carry Bokoblins and Moblins into battle. You can use your Grappling Hook to steal their Golden Feathers.
In Twilight Princess, Kargaroks have two different variations. The first is a common enemy in Hyrule Field, which attempts to knock Link off of Epona. Karagaroks can be easily dispatched with the Sword. An alternative method is firing Arrows at them, Bomb Arrows being especially effective. These Kargaroks are featherless, resembling pterasaur-like creatures more than a bird.
Shadow Kargaroks are Kargaroks that have been transformed by the effects of the Twilight Realm. They attack in the same way as normal Kargaroks, although their body is black, their head concave, and make trumpet-like sounds.
A battle with a Twilit Carrier Kargarok takes place upon entering Lake Hylia. Fyer spots a Bulblin from a distance, which must be approached. When it sees Link, it will use the nearby Hawk Grass to call a Twilit Carrier Kargarok and then hop on its back, shooting flaming Arrows. Once defeated, Midna takes control of it and uses it to progress further.
- Due to their resemblance, the Helmaroc King may be the same species as the Kargaroc.
Kargarok seems to be a misromanization, since its name is believed to come from Roc, a giant bird in Asian mythologies. This naming can be found in other bird-like creatures, such as the Helmaroc King, and bird-related items, like the Roc's Feather.
