Karuna is a character from the manga based on The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening. He is a Moblin and master swordsman.


Spoiler warning: Plot or ending details follow.

Karuna claims himself to be the greatest swordsman on Koholint Island, and the master of Ukuku Prairie. He duels Link shortly after the hero exits the Angler's Cave, but Link's broken sword is no good against the swordsman. The ghost of Nakura arrives and saves him after Karuna knocks him off a cliff.

Later, Link duels Karuna again, now equipped with Nakura's sword. In this encounter, however, Link prevails, and kills the Moblin.

Spoiler warning: Spoilers end here.

  • While Karuna is unique to the manga, Pig Moblins can indeed be found in Ukuku Prairie within Link's Awakening.
