Geek Speak Weekly: Gorons

GORONS – The Legend of Zelda series

For the non-nerds: Gorons are a species seen throughout the Legend of Zelda video games. They are mountain dwelling, rock-like humanoids that lead a very caveman-like existence. They are a very docile and spiritual culture, only provoked to violence when they way of life is interrupted. They eat rocks and can resist lava. No one has ever seen a Goron female.

For the nerds: Gorons have appeared in a total of 11 Zelda games, their first appearance was in Ocarina of Time. Gorons cannot swim, but they cannot drown, so there is the danger of becoming stranded at the bottom of a lake, so Gorons tend to avoid deep water where possible.
