As you know, if I imprison the Oracle of Seasons and bury the temple that houses the Season Spirits, the seasons of Holodrum will be cast into chaos, the bountiful gifts of nature will rot, and all living things perish!!! That is the world of darkness that I long for!
~ Onox

Onox (also known as Knox) is the main antagonist of the video game The Legend of Zelda: Oracle of Seasons.

Onox resembles an Iron Knuckle and is one of the last bosses encountered in the game, capable of taking a Dark Dragon form, his goal in the game is to ruin the land and he often referred to himself as a General of Darkness.


This biography of Onox is organized into the latest "official Zelda timeline", this may change completely in the future as the timeline given is merely meant as an example, and there have been official timelines before it. It is the timeline where Ganondorf killed Link in his final battle with him, leading to the Imprisoning War described in the backstory of A Link to the Past.


Onox was a dark dragon who lived in the Dark World and acted as a high ranking general of Ganon. Eventually, after Ganon's destruction, Onox was contacted by Twinrova and was sent to Holodrum to light the Flame of Destruction.

The Legend of Zelda: Oracle of Seasons

After Veran's defeat and Link's arrival in Holdrum, Onox kidnaps Din and takes her to his castle, imprisoning her inside a giant castle. Onox then proceeds to sink the Temple of Seasons into Subrosia.

After collecting the Essences of Nature, Link entered the Castle of Onox and engaged in battle with the general himself. After beating Onox in both his Gerudo and his true Dark Dragon forms, Onox mocks Link, and reveals that Ganon will be revived soon. Onox is then destroyed.


Main article: Onox (Manga)

In the manga of The Legend of Zelda: Oracle of Seasons, Onox reprises his role as the main antagonist. In it, he has more screentime and a crueler personality.


Onox takes on two forms, he first appears in a façade that is meant to resemble a male Gerudo wearing Iron Knuckle armor. His second, true form, is that of a massive Dark Dragon with a red gem on his forehead.



  • In a new game save file, Onox will simply order Link to move aside as he captures Din. In a linked save with The Legend of Zelda: Oracle of Ages, he recognizes Link as the one who took down Veran and boasts that he's stronger than her.
