Big Octorok is the boss of the Temple of Droplets, the fourth dungeon in The Legend of Zelda: The Minish Cap. Despite its name, it is not actually a giant Octorok; rather, Link's small size makes it seem larger than normal relative to himself. Big Octorok is frozen when Link enters the Temple of Droplets. When Link unfreezes the Water Element, however, he also unfreezes the Big Octorok, who proceeds to suck in the Water Element and retreat into the room behind him.
The battle begins in shallow water, where Big Octorok will spit rocks at Link. Link must reflect them with his sword or shield to damage Big Octorok. After enough hits, Big Octorok -as well as the floor- will become covered in ice, and gain another attack; it will attempt to suck Link up and spit him out. In its ice form Big Octorok does not spit rocks, so Link must run around it to set the plant attached to its back on fire with the Flame Lantern. After this, the ice will melt off it, the iced floor will melt as well. Link must now battle Big Octorok by deflecting his rocks again. After this sequence has repeated a few times, Big Octorok will put out the light, forcing Link to use the Flame Lantern to see and avoid Big Octorok's charges; after this, the battle returns to normal. After defeating Big Octorok, Link gains the Water Element.
