Mucktoroks are Bosses in Tears of the Kingdom.[3]

Characteristics



Mucktorok is a small Octorok-like creature, not much larger than a regular Octorok, which can create and control Sludge. It uses this Sludge to make a shark-like monster similar to a Gyorg, which it rides in battle. One Mucktorok is the source of the Sludge that is polluting the Lanayru Region. After this Mucktorok is slain in the Water Temple, multiple Mucktoroks can be found in arenas throughout the Depths. When defeated in the Depths, Mucktoroks drop Octo Balloons, Octorok Eyeballs, and Octorok Tentacles. They will also unlock a Treasure Chests containing Huge Crystallized Charges the first time they are defeated.

Mucktorok hides in its Sludge shark, and attacks with a combination of charging attacks, waves of Sludge, and a Sludge beam. The Sludge shark resists most forms of attack, but Sidon's power or any water-based attack (e.g. any Weapon Fused with an Opal) will wash away the Sludge and expose Mucktorok. It will attempt to flee when it is vulnerable, but it can be stunned with an Arrow when it does so.

At half health, Mucktorok will begin spraying Sludge around the arena to slow Link down and make it harder for him to dodge its attacks; the Sludge projectiles can also damage Link if he takes a direct hit. Additionally, Mucktorok will begin jumping between puddles of Sludge when it is exposed and will continue to spray Sludge while doing so, making it harder to hit.

Nomenclature

Mucktorok appears to be a portmanteau of muck and Octorok.
