Main appearance(s)

Orb Monsters are enemies in Link's Awakening DX.[1][note 1]


Orb Monsters are found exclusively in the Color Dungeon. After being hit with a Sword, they can be picked up by using the Power Bracelet. Link must throw the Orb Monsters into holes matching their respective colors and shapes.[note 2] When all of them are placed correctly, they vanish while spawning either a Treasure Chest or a Small Key.

  1. Orb Monsters were referred to as Karakoro in The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening DX — Prima's Official Strategy Guide by Prima Games.[2] However, as this contradicts the name given in Encyclopedia, it is not considered Canon.
  2. In Link's Awakening for Nintendo Switch, both Orb Monsters and their corresponding holes bear geometric shapes to assist with color blindness. This feature was not present in Link's Awakening DX. Yellow-colored Orb Monsters also replaced Green Orb Monsters to assist with red-green color blindness.
