A Kargarok from Twilight Princess
|Spoils||Golden Feather (TWW)|
The Wind Waker
|Kargaroc (Figurine from The Wind Waker)|
|Habitat: Dragon Roost|
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.
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.
Link's Crossbow Training
Cadence of Hyrule
Kargarocs reappear in Cadence of Hyrule as enemies that move to the beat of the music. While they bear a strong resemblance to their marine counterparts in the The Wind Waker, they actually only appear in hot desert climates. Their attack pattern is identical to the Harpy from Crypt of the NecroDancer, as they can charge at either Cadence, Link, Yves, or Zelda from any direction, including diagonal, but with the added ability to jump on and off cliffs. Although their dash attacks can come close, they will always stop adjacent to the heroes before attempting to attack them. They can also only move on every other music beat, always crouching before leaping onto another tile. A stronger purple variant known as the Purple Kargaroc can be found in the Future World.
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.
