Ook is the mini-boss of the Forest Temple in Twilight Princess.

History

Ook is the leader of the monkeys of Faron Woods, who is being controlled by a parasite.[2] He is first seen when he cuts down a bridge across a chasm with the Gale Boomerang in the Forest Temple.[3] Later, when Link enters his chamber, he finds the primate standing atop a pillar. Ook then swings his Gale Boomerang at several Baba Serpents hanging from the ceiling, then taunts Link by spanking his bottom, and initiates a battle with him. After the battle, Ook's parasitic mite is destroyed and he returns to normal, and he later comes back to help Link battle Diababa, the dungeon's boss. He aids in the fight by swinging across the screen carrying Bomblings for Link to use against Diababa.[4]

Characteristics

Midna's Advice

Eee hee hee! See you later!

Ook

Based on his size, he looks like the boss monkey...but those other ones were friendly. He looks pretty hostile! We're on a very important mission here, so knock down anything that gets in your way!

Midna's Advice

Eee hee hee! See you later!

Ook (asked again)

Hey! If you have time to talk, hurry up and take that guy down! That guy's dancing at the top of that pillar! I think he's making fun of you! While that fool is up there dancing, that's your chance to take him down...

Midna's Advice

Eee hee hee! See you later!

Ook (asked a third time)

You still don't get it? When that guy's at the top of a pillar, shake it to knock him down!

Ook throws his Gale Boomerang at Link while jumping across several pillars in the center of the room. The Baba Serpents that Ook cut off from the ceiling will also chase after Link. Dodging his Boomerang is easy, but getting him down from the pillars is a bit harder. After he throws his Boomerang, Link must dodge it, then ram the pillar he is standing on. Ook then starts to lose his balance and then gets knocked off the pillar by his own Boomerang when it comes back. Once fallen, his bottom becomes vulnerable. After slashing at him a couple of times, he cuts down some more Baba Serpents to attack Link. Once he is defeated, it is revealed that a gigantic mite on his head was controlling him. Defeating him also yields the Gale Boomerang.
