Carock is a dungeon boss in the Legend of Zelda II: The Adventure of Link (1987) by Nintendo for the NES.

Carock waits for Link in the Maze Island Palace and can only be defeated by using the Reflect Spell to use his own magic against him, this type of boss battles returned in a few later Legend of Zelda games.

 Carock himself  did not appear in any later games yet and was illustrated two times so far for our Link’s Blacklist.

While his official illustration showed Carock in a dark blue color scheme, he was red in the game itself.
