Head Thwomp is the boss of the second dungeon in Oracle of Ages, Wing Dungeon. This is a somewhat non-traditional boss, and resembles a Thwomp of the Super Mario franchise. To fight Head Thwomp, you must climb the ladder at the side of the screen and toss Bombs into the opening at the top of the head. He will then spin around quickly and land on one of his face. If he lands on the green face, he will throw fireballs which can be avoided by standing at the top of the ladder at the very right. If he lands on the blue face, he will shoot orbs in a slowly widening circle, which can be avoided by standing at the bottom of the ladder and pressing against the wall. If he lands on the purple face, he will smash into the ground at make boulders fall from the ceiling. This can be avoided by standing underneath one of the platforms near the ladder. Finally, if he lands on the red face, he will take damage and also drop a recovery heart. He might also randomly drop bombs and shoot fireballs during the battle. After he lands on red four times, Head Thwomp will be defeated. Link will receive the Ancient Wood and a Heart Container if he is successful in battle.
