Medigoron is a recurring character in The Legend of Zelda series.[1]


Ocarina of Time[]

Medigoron is a large Goron who owns a store in Goron City and is also the brother of Biggoron in Ocarina of Time.[2] He sells Link the Giant's Knife for 200 Rupees.[3] The blade, despite having taken Medigoron from five to six years to make,[4] breaks after using it 100 times or after striking a hard object.[5] Though Link must use two hands to wield the Giant's Knife, Medigoron considers it to be a small weapon.[6]

Medigoron's Blade Store is a tight fit for his enormous size,[7] a side effect of his lack of foresight.[8] In the game's ending credits, he comes down to Lon Lon Ranch for the celebration and watches the Cucco Lady juggle Cuccos.

Majora's Mask[]

Medigoron appears covering his ears inside the Goron Shrine due to the Goron Elder's Son cries in Majora's Mask. He is the brother of Biggoron.


Medigoron is a portmanteau of medium and Goron, referencing his medium size compared to Biggoron and other normal sized other Gorons.
