Pumpkin Head Ghini (OoA)

True form

Pumpkin Head (ハーロン Hāron) is a spirit that guards the Eternal Spirit, the first Essence of Time that Link must obtain from within the Spirit's Grave in The Legend of Zelda: Oracle of Ages. Despite initially appearing to be a tall monster with a jack-o-lantern for a head, he is revealed to in actuality be a tiny Ghini.

Battle strategy

During the first stage of the battle, Link must use his sword to strike at the creature's body until it disappears, leaving just the pumpkin. At this point Link must equip or already have equipped the dungeon's Power Bracelet in order to lift the pumpkin, revealing the Ghini spirit hiding inside. Once revealed this spirit will begin to flee -- Link must either drop the pumpkin and strike the Ghini with his sword or instead throw the pumpkin itself at it. This latter strategy is actually the boss' weakness. Once struck the Ghini will go back inside the head and regain its body. Repeat this action a few times and Pumpkin Head will be defeated.
