"Daruk, the Goron Hero" is the second Scenario of Chapter 2 and fourth overall in Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity.[1]


The Scenario starts with Zelda asking Daruk to become the pilot of Divine Beast Vah Rudania, which he eagerly accepts. However, he reluctantly tells Zelda and the others that Vah Rudania is located at the top of Death Mountain and that it would be a difficult task to approach it. Optimistically, he decides to go with the help of Link, Impa, Zelda, and the Diminutive Guardian.

Daruk and the others defeat a few Moblins and capture a number of Outposts across Death Mountain. After defeating an Igneo Talus on the north side of the mountain, the group continues on towards the summit and fights a few more Moblins guarding a bridge. Shortly after defeating them, Daruk rolls and slams himself into the bridge, lowering it to provide access to the rest of Death Mountain. The group splits up when the Allied Outpost is attacked, with one headed back to the allies and the other continuing their journey towards the summit.[clarification needed]

Near the summit, the group encounters another Igneo Talus and a Fire Wizzrobe. After the battle, Daruk praises Link for his help and decides to nickname him "little guy".

Upon investigating Vah Rudania, it is decided that Daruk will pilot the Divine Beast. Piloting it down the mountain, Daruk and his Divine Beast defeat numerous monsters, including Fire Wizzrobes and a few Igneo Taluses.[verification needed] He later encounters a large group of Igneo Taluses near the base of the volcano.

After successfully defeating the monsters, Daruk gives Link Prime Rock Roast.
