“You got a Goron Tunic! This heat-resistant tunic is adult size, so it won't fit a kid... Going to a hot place? No worry!”
In-game text for obtaining the Goron Tunic

The Goron Tunic is one of the three tunics that appear in The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time and its Nintendo 3DS remake, The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D. It is a red tunic that allows Link to withstand hot temperatures of the Death Mountain Crater and the Fire Temple, thus protecting him from eventually fainting. The Goron Tunic increases Link's defense by reducing the amount of damage he takes from fiery traps. It also allows Link to harmlessly move across shallow lava, floor spikes, and poisonous water for a longer period of time (or indefinitely via jumping). Like the Zora Tunic, Link can only wear the Goron Tunic as an adult.

Link can obtain the Goron Tunic if he stops Darunia's son, also named Link, from rolling around Goron City. If Link is swallowed by a Like Like and does not unequip it before being spit out, it will swallow the Goron Tunic. Link can quickly recover it by quickly defeating the Like Like. If Link loses his Goron Tunic, he can go to the Goron Shop to buy another one for 200 Rupees.

According to the Player's Guide, Goron Tunics are made from "Dodongo hides" and "Bomb Flower fibers".[1]

In the Super Smash Bros. series and the GameCube version of Soulcalibur II, one of Link's alternate costumes is based on the Goron Tunic. The Goron Tunic appears as one of Link's unlockable costumes in Hyrule Warriors, and is also represented on three obtainable badges that reduce damage taken on fire-element-recommended stages.

The Red Clothes from The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening DX particularly resemble the Goron Tunic.

"Goron Tunic Hylians mined Death Mountain for rupees and delivered the rocks they unearthed to the hungry Gorons. Since the temperature near the crater was too hot for Hylians to handle, the Gorons made them protective suits made from a sporty blend of Dodongo hides and Bomb Flower fibers."
