A Link to the Past
Debirandos are worm-like enemies with large pincers that live in the Desert Palace.
Blue DebirandoLink in if he gets too close. If Link gets caught in the sinkhole, he will have to kill that Blue Debirando to escape. Coming into contact with a Debirando will do a full heart of damage. After a short while the Debirando will burrow back underground, much like that of the Leevers that also reside within the Desert Palace. Unlike Leevers, Blue Debirando do not change the location where they are burrowed and instead will just pop back up from underground in the exact same spot. Two slashes with the Fighter's Sword will defeat these creatures.
The only difference between the color variations is the Red Debirando have the ability to shoot fireballs. Each time it comes up from underground, the Debirando will shoot three fireballs before burrowing back underground. These fireballs can do quite a bit of damage, considering Link cannot block them with his Fighter's Shield. If Link gets stuck within the sinkhole, the Debirando can hit Link with consecutive hits. Each hit from a fireball will do a 1/2 heart of damage.
