Boon (Japanese: ブーン\) is an enemy that appears in The Adventure of Link.


The Adventure of Link

Boon are fly-like enemies that are only found in Eastern Hyrule. They are commonly found in grassy areas near the Town of Nabooru, within the swamps in southeastern Hyrule, and on Maze Island.

They will fly about very quickly, occasionally dropping rocks down on Link.[1] They can be quite difficult to defeat because of their speed. Using the Upward Thrust is the best tactic to fend them off.

Boon are usually found alongside Tektites and Basilisk, but unlike these two creatures the Fire Spell is not needed in order to defeat them. Link gains 50 experience points for defeating this enemy.

Non-canon Appearances

Link: The Faces of Evil

Boon are bee-like enemies that can be found in Spearfish Falls and Lupay. They come swooping towards Link, simply trying to fly right into him. While they do come at various angles, their somewhat large size makes them fairly easy targets for Link's sword. A single sword slash will defeat them. Link must be careful though, as wherever he see a single Boon, many more are soon to follow. So Link must try to defeat them before they can gang up on him. Boon will also leave behind a single red ruby as a spoil once they have been defeated.

Zelda: The Wand of Gamelon

Boon can be found flying around the desert areas of Ahitaru. They look like and act the same as the did in Link: The Faces of Evil.
