Octoroks are now land creatures that do not resemble their counterparts from older 2D Zelda titles. They also have some similarities to deku scrubs from previous Zelda games. Octoroks will shoot rocks towards you, but whenever you comes close, they will hide under patches of grass. In order to defeat an octorok, you can deflect the rocks back by lunging your shield forward knocking the rock back towards the enemy. You can also use the sword to slash the rock back, or use the whip to pull the octorok up from underground for a short period of time, allowing you to slash away with your sword.
Long ago, on a dark day, the earth cracked and evil forces rushed out of the fissure. These forces mercilessly attacked the people of the earth, slaughtering them and destroying their land. They did this in search of the ultimate power, a power capable of granting any wishes of its holder. This power, passed down from the gods of old, was guarded by Her Grace, the goddess of the land. The goddess gathered the surviving humans on a piece of earth and sent it skyward, beyond the clouds. With the humans safe, the goddess joined the land dwellers and fought the evil forces in a war of unmatched scale and ferocity. They eventually sealed the evil forces away, restoring peace to the surface. However, the humans remained in Skyloft, as Hylia knew that the seal on the evil would not hold forever.
You are Link, a resident of Skyloft, who, after a strange dream, sets out on a journey to save his beloved home.
