The River Devil is an enemy that appears in Zelda II: The Adventure of Link.
The River Devil is an enemy that acts more as an obstacle rather than an actual enemy. This blackened, spider-like creature blocks the single road that connects the northern and southern parts of Hyrule. The residents of the Nabooru are afraid of this creature. The only way to pass him is to play the Flute that can be found in the Palace on the Sea. After Link plays the Flute, the River Devil disappears and Link can continue in his quest.
- In the Japanese Famicom Disk System version of The Adventure of Link, the River Devil has a different sprite. In that version, it has brown skin and is known as "The Monster."
