Kyandokyan is an enemy in Oracle of Ages.

Characteristics and Weaknesses

As their name suggests, they are monsters that look quite similar to candles, and appear to be made of wax, with a small wick on top of their bodies. They are immune to almost all weapons, except when it comes to fire. When lit on fire by using an Ember Seed, a Kyandokyan will begin to run around wildly until it explodes. It is best for Link to hide behind an object or use the Cane of Somaria to create a barrier once the creature is lit. They move in diagonal patterns, and their behavior is similar to Bob-ombs in later games, and Bombites in Link's Awakening.


  • Kyandokyan is one of the few enemies exclusive to Oracle of Ages and does not appear in Oracle of Seasons. Magunesu on the other hand is exclusive to Oracle of Seasons and does not appear in Oracle of Ages.
