The Hungry Goron
|First appearance||Majora's Mask (2000)|
- "Ooooh...It is so cold... I am so very hungry. I don't think I'm going to make it... I just want to eat once more before I die up here. Something tough and hard to chew... I cannot forget that flavor..."
- — Hungry Goron
When Link first visits the Mountain Village he finds the Hungry Goron atop an ice outcropping. The Goron is shivering and starving. Because of this, he does not have the strength to travel back to Goron Village and get food. If Link travels to the Goron Shrine and morphs into Goron Link, he can roll into the chandelier to retrieve the Rock Sirloin hidden within it. Link must first light all the torches in the room to get the chandelier rotating before this will work. When the Rock Sirloin is recovered, Link can carry it back to the Mountain Village and give it to the Hungry Goron. As thanks, the Hungry Goron gives Link Don Gero's Mask and rolls back to Goron Village. If Link throws a bomb onto the Goron's ledge, the Goron will complain he cannot eat it but will thank Link anyway.
