The concept of mini-bosses in video games gives developers a way to add some new and exciting enemies, giving players some more time with the game. These enemies are not limited to original creations, some of the major bosses from classic games are often converted into mini-bosses for modern games.

And that’s exactly what has been done to a very dangerous and creepy enemy from Ocarina of Time. And it’s not a simple pick-up and drop either, this enemy has been tweaked into a modern version. This information was recently reported by gamerant.

This enemy is called Dead Hand, it attacks links through hands coming from inside the ground. In the case of the Tears of the Kingdom, though, these hands are changed into guardian tentacles which in itself is a very creative take on this enemy.

And fans are pretty excited about this enemy being present in these upcoming games. Fans will remember that this enemy and one other previously spotted enemy were missing from Breath of the Wild. Hence, it makes sense for them to be excited about these enemies being in this upcoming Zelda game.
