Habitat(s)Color Dungeon

Orb Monsters are enemies in Link's Awakening DX.[1][note 1]


Orb Monsters are found exclusively in the Color Dungeon. After being hit with the Sword, they can be picked up by using the Power Bracelet. Link must throw the Orb Monsters into holes matching their respective color. When all of them are placed correctly, they vanish while spawning either a Treasure Chest or a Small Key.

  1. Orb Monsters are referred to as Karakoro in the game's official guide by Prima Games.[2] However, because Orb Monster's name was officially stated in Encyclopedia, this name is no longer considered Canon.
