Artwork of a Mago
|First appearance||The Adventure of Link (1988)|
Magos are orange-robed monsters with skull-like faces. It is unknown whether they are skeletons or if they wear masks. Magos move by teleportation. They will appear in immaterial form, identifiable by a flickering appearance, in which they cannot be damaged. They briefly materialize to release a ball of flame that travels along the floor towards Link. This is the only time they are vulnerable. After releasing the flame, they phase out and teleport to a different location in the room.
Unlike most other enemies in The Adventure of Link, Magos always provide experience points, never Magic Vials or P Bags. They are also one of the highest experience-giving enemies in the game, giving out 200 experience points upon defeat.
The word mago means "wizard" in several languages.
