Breath of the Wild
In Breath of the Wild, the Black Hinox is the most powerful variant of the standard Hinox. It has more health and will deal more damage to Link. Fighting a Black Hinox is identical as fighting a standard Hinox, with their large eye being a weak point. Link can shoot the Hinox with an arrow to stun him, allowing Link to then attack its main main body with sword attacks. The Black Hinox often has wooden or steel shin guards, making it so that Link can't attack his feet directly, while he is standing.
When defeated, a Black Hinox may drop a Hinox Toenail, a Hinox Tooth, or Hinox Guts. The Black Hinox is not as common as its Blue Hinox counterpart, only appearing in set locations, including as one of the Giant Brothers in the shrine quest, The Three Giant Brothers.
Age of Calamity
In Age of Calamity, the Black Hinox is a fairly common late-game sub-boss, first appearing during the Relentless as a Waterfall scenario. Just as in Breath of the Wild, the Black Hinox is more powerful than the standard Red Hinox and the Blue Hinox.
When defeated, a Black Hinox may drop a Hinox Toenail, Hinox Tooth, or Hinox Guts. Additionally, the player will receive a Hinox Trophy each time one of these bosses are defeated. These can be used to complete quests or upgrade weapons of the various warriors.
