|First Game Appearance||The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword|
The Hrok is an enemy exclusive to Skyward Sword. It is distinguished by its rather swollen bright red throat and diet consisting of rocks.
 The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword
A large bird, the Hrok inhabits the Lanayru Desert. They can be found nesting on tall white trees. Feeding off rocks, the Hrok is able to absorb the nutrients from them. What's left over can then be regurgitated and spat out, which the Hrok uses as a way of defending it's territory by dropping them onto it's target.
Unable to engage them on the ground, Link must make use of items gained during his journey to defeat them. The first of these is the Beetle, which after an upgrade can carry bombs to ram into the Hrok. If the Hrok notices the incoming bomb, however, it will begin to fly in circles in an attempt to avoid it. Further into the game, Link can use his newly acquired Bow to snipe the Hrok.
