Horsehead in "Quest for the Potion of Power"

Horsehead is a centaur-like being who resides on Hyrule. He is based on the enemy of the same name from Zelda II: The Adventure of Link.


Horsehead was the guardian of the Golden Key to the Potion of Power, which was kept in Parapa Palace. When Kevin, Link, and Princess Zelda took the key, Horsehead burst out of the ground to challenge them. He carried an extendable mace, wore armor that protected him from Zelda's arrows, and was strong enough to disarm and overpower Link. Kevin, however, rushed to Link's rescue and defeated Horsehead by shooting a ledge above him, which collapsed it on his head.
