The Stone Hinox is a Sub-Boss of the Color Dungeon in Link's Awakening DX.[note 1]
His appearance is somewhat similar to that of a Hinox, although its behavior is quite different. It moves slowly in predictable patterns and attacks with a powerful earthquake that it causes by jumping and slamming into the ground. When it hits the ground, Boulders will drop from above and tumble towards Link. The Stone Hinox will often cause multiple earthquakes in a row, leading to a torrent of rocks for Link to avoid. Not only this, but the arena where the battle takes place is littered with floor spikes, making it hard for Link to reach the Boss to connect with his Sword. The Stone Hinox is also one of the few Bosses in the game that causes Link to bounce back when he connects with his blade, which may send him flying into the aforementioned spikes.
Like its namesake, the Stone Hinox has a weakness to Bombs, and can be destroyed with as little as two of them.
