Argorok is a recurring Boss in The Legend of Zelda series.[note 1] It is a red-orange wyvern covered in black armor, and it terrorizes the Oocca and wreaks havoc on the City in the Sky. As Link explores the City, Argorok can be seen flying overhead in the sky.
The battle takes place at the highest point in the dungeon, a flat plain with four steel grated pillars and very strong winds. Argorok will primary attack by swooping down at Link to deal damage, Link must go to one of the pillars surrounding the field and climb to the middle of one of the pillars using the Clawshot. Tho Link should not stand on the pillars for too long, as if that happens, Argorok will fly to Link's posting, and spew out fire in point-blank range at Link dealing damage. Once there, he must wait until Argorok flies up to him and exposes his tail, which Link must target. Once he has a hold of it, he must equip the Iron Boots to send Argorok crashing to the ground, destroying some of his armor. After this is done two times, the rest of the armor will break away and reveal a new weak spot on his back. At this point, Peahats burst from the ground to serve as extra Clawshot points, and Argoroj will remove the rest of his armor. Link must climb to the top of the pillars and use the Peahats to Clawshot his way around the area as Argorok breathes fire at him. Once Argorok pauses, Link must make his way around to his back and jump to the new weak point with the Clawshot. Link must then slash it with the Sword as the boss falls, eventually depositing him on the ground again. After the strategy is repeated twice, Argorok changes directions. This process must be repeated until Argorok is defeated.
Argorok is a play on "Argo", an archaic term for the Ancient Greeks, whose architecture the City in the Sky resembles, and "rok", a term used in the series for dragon enemies. It may also be a play on Kargarok, a similar common enemy.
