Black Hinox are mini-bosses from The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. They are black Hinox strongest variants. Like all Hinox, they are encountered sleeping in specific areas of Hyrule. One Black Hinox can be found in the Northwest part of Hyrule Castle in the Hyrule Field region, and another in the Giant's Forest. Black Hinox drop Guts, Tooth, Toenail parts and roasted meat. Each Hinox counts as one of the 40 Hinox specimens that Link must defeat to obtain the Medal of Honor: Hinox from Kilton.
Black Hinox may wear metal leg armor which makes them vulnerable if hit with Shock Arrows or electric elemental weapons, briefly stunning them. This metal leg armor is apparently both non-magnetic and non-conductive as it cannot be affected by the Magnesis Rune or attract lightning bolts during thunderstorms. Unlike the wooden leg armor worn by other Hinox, it cannot be destroyed. Like the other variants, Black Hinox wield weapons and bows on their necklace which Link can obtain by defeating them or grabbing them while stunned. Link can also steal the items off their necklace while they are sleeping by boosting his Stealth ability.
