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.

Kargarocs are used by Ganon for surveillance and transportation of other enemies such as Moblins across the Great Sea in The Wind Waker. They can be easily defeated by shooting an Arrow or Bomb from the Cannon at them. Kargarocs attack by headbutting Link. He can collect Golden Feathers from defeated Kargarocs.

Twilight Princess

Kargaroks appear in Hyrule Field in Twilight Princess, attempting to knock Link off of Epona. Kargaroks can be easily dispatched with the Sword or by firing Arrows at them, Bomb Arrows being especially effective. These Kargaroks are featherless, with dragon-like wings and heads like turkeys, complete with wattles.

Monita's Comment

Monita

Kargorok

These oversensitive birds can be calmly gliding one moment, then furiously dive-bombing you the next. · They can deflate a balloon faster than I can deflate a joke with my searing sarcasm.

In Battle Quest, Kargaroks, or Kargoroks in PAL versions, appear as enemies in some of the attraction's various levels. They also appear as one of the 200 prizes that can be won using the coins at the game on the top of the central tower located in the middle of the plaza. Upon touching the prize in the plaza using the touch screen or simply jumping into it, Monita will comment on them.

Nomenclature

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.
