In Link's Awakening, Blaino is one of the mini-bosses of Turtle Rock. His gloves completely block Link's attacks in the front, so Link must hit him with his sword from behind. Blaino leaves himself open to damage after using a powerful dash forward, which, if it hits, can send Link back to the entrance of the dungeon. He also has the ability to stun Link with his punches, which can leave him helpless as Blaino dashes toward him and sends him flying away. After he is defeated, a portal to the entrance appears in addition to a Fairy. In the next room, Link can obtain the Magic Rod if he has found the hidden room with a switch and activated it previously to knock down the barrier in front of the rod's Treasure Chest.
Oracle of Seasons
Blaino lives in his gym in Spool Swamp in Oracle of Seasons. He took Ricky's boxing gloves. Link can fight against Blaino without using any Magical Rings or other weapons besides his fists for 10 Rupees, but if he cheats the bet goes up to 20 Rupees. Once he defeats him, Blaino pronounces Link the new champion and gives back Ricky's gloves.
