Deadrocks are recurring enemies in the Legend of Zelda series. They are small creatures with a mild resemblance to the Goombas originating in the Super Mario Bros. series, but with vestigial wings. When hit by an attack, Deadrocks turn into invulnerable stone statues for a short period of time. This can also block Link's path.


The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past

Deadrocks are found on Death Mountain. They move rapidly in the four cardinal directions, and deal a fair amount of damage to Link should he get hit by one. Deadrocks cannot be killed; however, Magic Powder or the Quake Medallion will turn them into Slimes, which can be easily defeated with a sword attack. Deadrocks will not be transformed if they are in their stone form.

The Legend of Zelda: Four Swords Adventures

Deadrocks are found in the Death Mountain Foothills. They can be destroyed either by moving the giant Moving House over them or by striking them with the Magic Hammer.


The name "Deadrock" is likely derived from their defensive mechanism of turning into inanimate rocks.
