Three-Eye Rock Palace
Rebonack is the boss of the Island Palace in The Adventure of Link. He is a powerful blue Iron Knuckle mounted on a floating mechanical horse and wielding a jousting lance. Two others are later encountered in the Three-Eye Rock Palace as mini-bosses.
While mounted on his horse, Rebonack retreats off or almost off screen, then charges at Link at high speed. Seemingly on the back foot against a mounted opponent, Link must move to the middle of the room and when Rebonack charges, jump and use the Down Thrust to damage him.
After he has suffered enough damage, his horse will run away, Rebonack leave his lance, draws his sword and will fight Link on foot as a standard Blue Iron Knuckle by shooting Sword Beams. However, Rebonack has two unique capacities. He is much better defender than any Iron Knuckles and he can back off the screen where Link can't follow him and can keep shooting Sword Beams at Link while doing so. During the second phase, the best is to bait him to the middle of the room repeatedly.
- It is possible that "Rebo" in the name Rebonack was intended to mean "Levo" as in levitate, referring to his floating mechanical horse.
- Rebonack's mechanical horse is the first appearance of a horse in the series, not counting the unicorn dragon Aquamentus.
- In the Japanese version of The Adventure of Link, one Rebonack in the Palace on the Sea was replaced by a Horsehead.
