Aruroda is the one-eyed scorpion foe in The Adventure of Link. It can only be struck when its single, large eye is open, and it shoots fireballs from its tail.


  • It is interesting that "Rōdā" is the Japanese name for Lowder, suggesting a link between the two monsters. However, it should be noted that the katakana for "Lowder", , is different from Aruroda's spelling, .
  • These enemies have elsewhere been given the unofficial name "Skettlar".[1]
  • The Aruroda greatly resembles the Aracha from Skyward Sword in that they're both one-eyed scorpions.
