Appearances and Biography
Ocarina of Time
Biggoron is a gigantic Goron living on Death Mountain next to the Great Fairy Fountain. He is a skilled blade maker, creator of the Biggoron's Sword. To obtain it, Link must first complete a trading sequence. Biggoron has a little brother, Medigoron, who is also into the Sword-making business, although the quality of the blades he produces is inferior.
Biggoron makes a cameo appearance in Majora's Mask as the guard of the Snowhead Temple. To enter the temple, Goron Link must play the Goron Lullaby putting to sleep Biggoron, clearing the entrance in the way. After defeating Goht and bringing spring to Snowhead, Biggoron can be found sitting in the gorge unaware of why he was there and what he had been doing. The reason why he became invisible and created the blizzard is unknown, but it is possible that he was under Skull Kid's influence.
Oracle of Seasons
Biggoron makes an appearance in Oracle of Seasons atop the peak of Goron Mountain. When the Temple of Seasons sank, the climate on the mountain became colder, causing Biggoron to catch cold. Biggoron's ailment can be cured with the Lava Soup. In return, he gives Link the Goron Vase.
The Minish Cap
In The Minish Cap, Biggoron can nibble on Link's Shield and transform it into the Mirror Shield. Biggoron is first available once Kinstones have been fused in the Goron Cave, after recovering King Daltus back from his statue state.

||This is a legendary Goron with a body bigger than a mountain. It is so big, in fact, that no one has ever seen it all at once.|
In Phantom Hourglass, Biggoron is the name of the chief of Goron Island. Unlike past appearances, Biggoron is closer to the size of an average Goron, although he is still the biggest Goron in the game. He is the father of Gongoron, and gives Link permission to enter the Goron Temple after having tested him in a quiz.
