A Mini-boss, also known as a Middle Boss,[note 1] is generally one particular enemy or a group of common enemies which are harder to defeat


Mimi-bosses usually protect an item within a dungeon or other locations. Most of the time, they must be defeated to proceed within a dungeon or area. A common characteristic that distinguishes a mini-boss from a regular enemy is a particular battle theme played during the encounter, which is different from the usual enemy theme. They may return later as common enemies, likely because Link will have new tools and weapons to defeat them more easily. They may come in groups, as in the case of common enemies. If they are in a room, the door usually locks until they are defeated.
