- Not to be confused with the Great Moblin.
King Moblin is the leader of a gang of Moblins that kidnapped Madam MeowMeow's pet "dog" while Link was exploring the Tail Cave. Link sets off to rescue MeowMeow's pet, and locates the Moblin Cave found at Tal Tal Heights. After fighting his Moblin and Sword Moblin minions, Link runs into the King Moblin in the penultimate room, where he is holding BowWow hostage. He will fire projectiles while jumping around, before beating his chest and charging forward with his head lowered trying to impale Link on his horns. This attack is fast and can cause a lot of damage, but if Link moves out of the way, King Moblin will instead slam into the back wall and stun himself, leaving him vulnerable to Link's blade. He has a surprising amount of stamina, but enough strikes will eventually defeat him.
- In the original game, the King Moblin is a bulldog Moblin (which commonly live in the Mysterious Woods), and may not be the leader of the Pig Warrior variety of Moblin, unlike the Great Moblin in the Oracle of Seasons and Oracle of Ages.
The King Moblin's Japanese name, Oyaburin, is a portmanteau of the Japanese word for "boss", 親分 (Oyabun) and the suffix "-blin". Oya also means "parent", so the King Moblin could be seen as both the leader and parent of the other Moblins.
