Slaroks are enemies from The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past. They are the Dark World counterpart of Octoroks, and resemble Octoroks with pig like ears and a curled tail. Similarly, to Octoroks, they run quickly in straight lines and spit rocks. Occasionally, Slaroks will stop running and rapidly spit rocks in four directions. The rocks can be difficult to avoid if too many Slaroks are in one place. They can also hurt Link by running into him. They are first seen due east of the Pyramid; the same area that is overpopulated by Octoroks in the Light World. The sword is the best weapon for defeating them; however, they are quite susceptible to many of Link's other weapons.
