King Dodongo is one of the Giant Bosses found in Hyrule Warriors. It is the boss of Hyrule Field, the first stage in the game. After the Hyrulean Forces have captured the Central Keep, Wizzro and the Dark Forces unleash King Dodongo at the North Square. Moments later, it rolls into the Central Keep and starts to advance towards Hyrule Castle.
While it has a few new attacks, King Dodongo shares some of the same behaviors from its Ocarina of Time counterpart. As seen earlier, King Dodongo can roll into a ball and attempt to run over the Hyrulean Forces. When rolling, it is able to destroy walls of the keeps. King Dodongo can also pound the ground with its front legs to hurl everything into the air. Similarly, it can make the forces slightly move away from it by roaring. King Dodongo can immediately breathe fire, but it exhales a fireball after inhaling a large amount of air.
While King Dodongo is inhaling, the Hyrulean Forces can throw bombs into its mouth and temporarily stun it, exposing its weak point. Alternatively, they can use a Focus Spirit Attack to automatically stun it. After completely reducing the Weak Point Mark, they can perform a Weak Point Smash that greatly harms King Dodongo. Once King Dodongo is defeated, the Hyrulean Forces win the battle against the Dark Forces at Hyrule Field.
- In the Hyrule Warriors Nintendo Direct reveal trailer, the design of King Dodongo is taken from its appearance in Ocarina of Time.
