Dangoro is the Middle Boss of the Goron Mines in Twilight Princess.[2] He is a giant Goron who guards the sacred Hero's Bow. When Link first enters the room, Dangoro believes him to be an intruder and will prepare to attack him.

"Looks like this guy is the guard...Sounds like he's mistaken you for an intruder, and I doubt he'll listen to reason. You'll have to fight him."

Dangoro (asked again)
"Whoa! Look at how the floor tilts! Talk about unstable. You'd better stick yourself to it so you don't fall off!"

Dangoro (asked a third time)
"Don't be fooled by his size! He's like the ones on the mountain path: a Goron who can't really do anything but roll!"

Dangoro (after damaging him once)
"Wow! He's a tenacious guy...He's lucky he's a Goron. Otherwise he wouldn't be getting back up here after falling into the lava! Just keep tossing him into the lava until he quits getting back up!"

When Link reaches the main platform, Dangoro is seen sitting down, before hastily getting up after mistaking Link as an intruder. He then jumps onto the magnetic platform and starts the battle by breaking the chains suspending the room's central platform over the lava pit below.[3] By equipping the Iron Boots, Link can anchor himself to its magnetic surface, preventing himself from falling off the platform. As Dangoro prepares to attack, Link can strike his unprotected belly, causing him to roll up into a ball in an attempt to run Link over. By moving over to the edge and grabbing him like the Gorons outside, Link can toss Dangoro into the lava. By repeating this method three times, Link is able to defeat him and finally convince the mighty Goron that he is acting for the Gorons and not against them.[4] Accepting his story, Dangoro grants Link passage into the next room, where he finds a chest containing the Hero's Bow.[4]


  • After the battle, Dangoro will no longer have his helmet.
  • Dangoro shares his name with the Japanese name of the Pokémon Roggenrola.
