Main appearance(s)

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


Red Orb Monsters are found exclusively in the Color Dungeon. After being hit with a Sword, they retreat into their orbs and can be picked up by using the Power Bracelet. Link must throw the Red Orb Monsters into their corresponding red holes.[note 1] When all the other Orb Monster are placed correctly, they vanish thus spawning either a Treasure Chest or a Small Key.
