@MisterMike Exactly my point. They aren't bosses in those cases. Just large-sized, sometimes-powerful enemies. Blue Darknuts and Wizzrobes are more powerful than a lot of these and appear alongside them, as fellow generic enemies. And Patra doesn't even have the "large size," it's just a clump of eyes.

@Doc von Schmeltwick
I've been recently playing through Zelda 1, both in the process of ripping this and casually, and I've never once seen more than one Patra in a room. In fact, given how the NES works with regards to sprite limitations, I find it rather unlikely that the developers would have ever considered doing such. I mean, the game is prone to lagging when you're only fighting one Patra, so imagine how laggy it would be if there were two. And yes, Dodongos have appeared in other dungeons whilst not being the main boss guarding the Triforce Shard, but so has literally every other boss monster in the game sans Ganon.

@MisterMike
I seem to recall two sets in one room in at least one part of Death Mountain.
Additionally, the game's manual does not make any distinction between enemies and bosses, just overworld and underworld enemies. Dodongos in later dungeons are undeniably treated as generic enemies, for example. "Boss" for this game really is just "enemy at end of dungeon."

- It only appears by itself, as most bosses do.
- It makes roaring noises while you're fighting it, like most bosses do.
- It's significantly hardier than most common enemies, as most bosses are.
Yeah, Patra's a boss.

Patra really should be on the enemies sheet, as it's really not a boss, except maybe in 2nd Quest or something....anyways, glad this has cleared up which palettes are overwritten.

The white spots on Ganon should be light cyan

All that work going through the final dungeon....just to find a giant blue pig punching himself in the face.
