- "This hand-shaped monster dwells in fiery lava. Its body is made up entirely of flowing magma. As such, it is invulnerable to most attacks."

Link can defeat the Magmanos by luring it upwards, then tossing a Water Fruit at it, solidifying its body and making it vulnerable to physical attack. Multiple sword strikes, a Spin Attack, or the damage from a single bomb is enough to destroy a solidified Magmanos.
It is possible that the name Magmanos is a portmanteau of the English word "magma", as in lava, and "manos", the plural form of a Spanish word meaning "hand."
