Dairas are powerful enemies that wield axes. They can be found in [[Western Hyrule]]. Dairas come in two variation in this game; orange and red.
+
====Orange Daira====
 +
Orange Daira charge Link on sight swinging their axe continuously. Link must time his attack in between swings to avoid damage. The [[Reflect Spell]] will strengthen his shield enough to repel the monster's weapon.
  
====Orange Diara====

====Red Daira====
 +
Red Dairas are more powerful than their orange counterparts. Instead of charging forward, they throw a limitless stream axes at [[Link]]. As with the Orange Daira, Link's shield cannot block the projectiles, except with the [[Reflect Spell]]. [[Downward Thrust]]s are recommended against these enemies. In order to defeat this formidable foe, Link must leap over the flying axes and quickly strike before another can be thrown. Recklessly charging without paying heed to the Daira's attacks is almost always fatal.
  
Orange Diaras do not throw their axes, but they only hack their axe continuously as their opponent draws near. They are particularly powerful, and should be fought with caution. It is best to do several hit and run tactics on the Orange Diara to avoid getting hurt.

Red Dairas are more powerful than Orange Dairas. They can throw their axes at [[Link]] and it cause twice as much damage as the Daira itself. Link's shield cannot block their axe throws, and he can only blocked it with the [[Reflect Spell]]. [[Downward Thrust]]s are recommended against these enemies. Red Dairas probably the most powerful overworld enemy in all of Western Hyrule. So, fight it with caution.

In this game, Dairas are wearing an armor with cape, but not wield any weapons at all. They are one of the most common enemies that appear in [[Thieves' Town]], a Dark World dungeon. They also appear in the last dungeon of the game, [[Ganon's Tower]] and the bonus dungeon, [[Palace of the Four Sword]]. Their official English name was never released. But, their Japanese name is "'''Zazakku'''"; the same as the Japanese name for Dairas in The Adventure of Link. They come in two variation in this game; blue and red.

In ''[[The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past|A Link to the Past]]'' there is a similar looking enemy known as a [[Zazak]]. Zazak come in two color forms, Red and Blue. Both of them are quite dangerous, but the Red ones have the ability to shoot fireballs out towards Link.
 
 
====Blue Diara====
 
 
 
Blue Dairas simply move around at random, damaging Link if he touch ones. They have a great defense that allows them to withstand a few blows even from the [[Master Sword]].
 
 
 
====Red Diara====
 
 
 
Red Dairas are more dangerous than the blue variety, and they also able to spit fireballs at Link. Link can only blocked these fireballs with the [[Mirror Shield]] he obtains late in the game. Red Dairas also have twice more defense than the blue ones.

As with the Orange Daira, Link's shield cannot block the projectiles, except with the Reflect Spell. Downward Thrusts are recommended against these enemies.
