Digdogger (The Legend of Zelda)
DIGDOGGER HATES CERTAIN KIND OF SOUND
Level 5: The Lizard
In Level 5: The Lizard, before engaging in this fight against Digdogger, Link can meet up with the Old Man in a certain room located in this dungeon. Here, the Old Man will tell Link the secret to defeating the Digdogger. He says, "DIGDOGGER HATES CERTAIN KIND OF SOUND." Link can use this information by using the Recorder during the fight against Digdogger which will cause it to break into two mini-Digdoggers. These mini-Digdoggers can be defeated with a multitude of items such as the Sword, Bombs, the Bow and Arrow, or the Magical Rod. The best item to attack the Digdoggers are the Bombs and the Magical Sword, both taking two hits to defeat each Digdogger. After defeating Digdogger, Link is rewarded with a Heart Container and the fifth Triforce Shard.
Level 7: The Demon
Digdogger makes its second and last appearance as the mini-boss of Level 7: The Demon. Link will fight Digdogger a total of three times in this dungeon. The first battle is exactly the same as the one from Level 5. However, the final two are slightly different. After Link plays the Recorder, Digdogger will not split into two mini-Digdoggers, like before. Instead, it will split into three mini-Digdoggers. Link must use the same strategy as before to kill all three Digdoggers in order to reach new parts of the dungeon.
- Digdogger appears four times in The Legend of Zelda, once in Level 5: The Lizard and thrice in Level 7: The Demon.
