Acheman (Bat Form)
Main article: Acheman

Achemen initially appear as red Ache.
Experience Points: 10 Once the red Ache reaches the ground, it transforms into an Acheman, a bipedal fire breathing monster. Upon firing a projectile, they quickly retreat to the cave ceiling. Link's Shield cannot repel the fireball, so he must jump to avoid it unless he has cast Reflect.
Experience Points: 10

Experience Points: 2

Daira (Orange)
Daira (Red)
Main article: Daira

Daira are ferocious axe-wielding monsters with crocodile heads, mostly occupying the caves of Death Mountain. The Orange type charges Link and swings its axe at Link. This attack cannot be blocked by his shield, so Link must duck under and stab low. The Reflect spell will make Link's shield strong enough to stop the axe.
Experience Points: 70

The red variety of Daira prefer to maintain range with Link and hurl their axes. If Link advances, the Daira will backpedal, maintaining distance. Link must leap over the projectiles (or use the Reflect Spell), and strike the beast.

Experience Points: 3 (10 in Eastern Hyrule)


Main article: Geldarm

Geldarm are large worm-like creatures that ascend from the desert sand. If Link strikes their body, they shrink back into the ground. Their head is the only vulnerability is in their head, so Link should slash at them once they are at ground level.
Experience Points: 10


Main article: Girubokku

Girubokku are massive eye creatures that float aimlessly back and forth. Like Aruroda, they can only be damaged when their eye is open. Link should take care to avoid contact with Girubokku, as even touching them causes a great deal of damage.
