Octorocs are minor enemies from the Legend of Zelda series that return usually in every new game of the series with the most recent Octoroks found in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild (2017). The Octorok appears even in the CD-I Zelda games and also made it into the crossover games Super Smash Bros Melee (2001) and Hyrule Warriors series as an enemy.

The Octorocs are usually small enemies but there are subspecies and individual Octorocs as well that might be bosses or special enemies.
