Sky Octoroks are recurring enemies in The Legend of Zelda series.[1][citation needed]

Characteristics

Skyward Sword

Sky Octoroks only appear in The Sky in Skyward Sword. They fly using the leaves on their mantles and live on the small, barren rock islands scattered throughout The Sky. As Link flies his Loftwing, Sky Octoroks will fire homing rocks at him. They can be defeated by flying close and boosting through them with a Spiral Charge.

Description
These low-level, octopus-like monsters used to be aquatic, but their inflatable air sacs evolved so that they are able to float around in the air. Other monsters are known to take advantage of this ability, using them to make floating fortresses. They are trained to ascend when they hear a whistle but they will not attack.
Common Locations
Greater Hyrule
Recoverable Materials
None

Sky Octoroks only appear in Master Mode included in DLC Pack 1, The Master Trials, in Breath of the Wild. They can be found all around Hyrule soaring through the skies next to bridges and Sheikah Towers, or above bodies of water. Sky Octoroks appear in groups of three or four holding planks containing Treasure Chests, and enemies.[2] They ascend when they hear a Bokoblin Horn or Link whistling.[3] Sky Octoroks can be defeated with a single Arrow, dropping the contents of their planks when defeated. They are harmless to Link as they cannot attack like other Octoroks. Unlike other enemies, Sky Octoroks do not need the Blood Moon to respawn and do not drop Materials when defeated.
