Daira are powerful humanoid alligators that appear in The Adventure of Link.

Appearances

The Adventure of Link

Dairas are enemies that wield powerful axes that can easily slice through Link's shield.[1][2][3] They can be found in Western Hyrule. Dairas come in two variations.

Orange Daira

Orange Daira charge Link on sight swinging their axe continuously. Link must time his attack in between swings to avoid damage. The Reflect Spell will strengthen his shield enough to repel the monster's weapon.

Red Daira

Red Dairas are more powerful than their orange counterparts. Instead of charging forward, they throw a limitless stream axes at Link. As with the Orange Daira, Link's shield cannot block the projectiles, except with the Reflect Spell. Downward Thrusts are recommended against these enemies. In order to defeat this formidable foe, Link must leap over the flying axes and quickly strike before another can be thrown. Recklessly charging without paying heed to the Daira's attacks is almost always fatal.
