Each group guards a fragment of the Triforce of Wisdom. Dodongos also appear in Level 5 and Level 7 of the First Quest as well as Level 1, Level 4, and Level-8 of the Second Quest. Link must use Bombs to defeat Dodongos, either by placing two Bombs in their mouth or by Bombing their side and hitting them once with his Sword. If they are defeated with a Sword, Link is rewarded with four Bombs. When defeated with Bombs, Dodongos may drop either a Heart, a Fairy, or one Rupee.[note 1] After defeating the whole group, Link is rewarded with a Heart Container.

- If Link defeats 10 enemies without getting hit or teleporting with the Flute, then the 10th enemy defeated will drop five Rupees. However, if the 10th enemy is defeated with a Bomb, then it will drop four Bombs. If Link defeats 16 enemies without getting hit or teleporting, then the 16th enemy will drop a Fairy. After the 16th enemy, Link must get hit and reset the counter to zero in order to achieve this effect again. Defeating Armos, Like Likes, Keese, or Gels will not be counted.
