The Wind Waker Big Octos

Six Big Octos lurk in the Great Sea in The Wind Waker. When looking to find these fearsome creatures, go to the island and look for a ring of seagulls to find them. Use your boomerang to attack their eyes. Each eye takes 3 hits. Kill all of Big Octo's eyes to defeat the creature. You either get rupees, a piece of heart, or a magic meter upgrade depending on which Big Octo you fought. Below is a listing of their locations, the number of eyes, as well as your reward.

Description:
- Big Octos are sea monsters that appear near flocks of seagulls. There are 6 Big Octos located all across the big sea, and they come in 3 different types. One has 4 eyes, 3 have 8 eyes, and 2 have 12 eyes. The number of hits it takes to defeat them is completly dependant on how many eyes it has, making the 12 eyed ones the hardest to defeat. The Bombs or arrows are the most practical and easiest ways to kill them, and the boomerang the hardest. You can also hit it with the Hookshot, but only on the last time you circle around it, making it almost impossible to defeat with. If you do not defeat the Big Octo fast enough, it will suck you into it's mouth, and then spit you out onto a random part of the Great Sea.
