The Angler Fish is the miniboss of Jabu-Jabu's Belly in The Legend of Zelda: Oracle of Ages. It slightly resembles one of the nearby Cheep Cheeps and is fought in a sidescrolling area, with the passage behind Link closing when it appears. It is fought on dry land in an area with large bumps on the floor, so it can only move by wildly bouncing around, attempting to hit Link with its large body. Occasionally, it spits out bubbles, which damage Link on contact but can be popped for hearts or Scent Seeds. The Angler Fish's only weak point is its flashing lure, though due to its high jumps, it can be difficult to hit. By using the Seed Shooter to fire a Scent Seed at it, Link can cause it to deflate and become immobile, allowing him to attack it repeatedly, but it eventually swells back up and continues. Once it is damaged enough, it explodes and the way backwards and the way to the Long Switch open, save for one locked door for the latter.
