The Biggoron is a character concept that has carried across through several Zelda titles. It is unknown if there is any direct relation between the Biggorons, or if they are even one in the same. The only thing that is absolutely certain is that they have their name for a reason: the Biggoron is vastly greater in size than a normal Goron, and as such usually reside away from the rest on mountains where they can find space to fit.
In OoT, Biggoron lives on top of Death Mountain. Due to his general appearance, he tends to blend in with his surroundings until approached by Link. He also has a brother in the game called Medigoron. Although he is a blacksmith, the Giant's Knife he will sell Link has a limited life to it and isn't worth buying.
What is worth getting, however, is the reward for a side quest involving Biggoron himself. With the Broken Goron's Sword, Link travels to the top of Death Mountain to ask Biggoron if he can mend it. Although more than capable, Biggoron currently has sore eyes as a result of an eruption from Death Mountain, which sees Link on quest to find a way to make the World's Finest Eye Drops to help him.
After running around and bringing them back to him, Biggoron agrees to fix the blade stating that it will take three days to do so. Though this process can be quickened a great deal through the use of the Sun's Song. After said time has passed, Biggoron gives Link the Biggoron Sword. Arguably the strongest sword in nearly all respects, it is a large blade capable of dealing great damage in a large radius.
So what do we think of the biggest Goron out there? What about the Biggoron Sword side quest? Is it worth it for the sword? Do you think there is any connection between the various appearances of a character named Biggoron? Did you bother to buy the Giant's Knife and use it? Does anyone else find it interesting that the Broken Goron's Sword becomes the Biggoron Sword when the latter is described as a blade that cannot break? Was the Broken Goron's Sword made by someone else?

I still remember when you thought Medigoron and Biggoron where the same Goron, Dark Arcanine. x3
I didn't find the quest to hard and it certainly was worth it because I never actually use my shield, I prefer to dodge.

To be honest, I was afraid back then to even take the Mirror Shield after Biggoron was done... manhandling it. That was just disgusting.

Well funnily enough he does that shield upgrade in Minish Cap rather than a better sword. And to be exact, he crafts the Mirror Shield.
Having said that, it would be cool if he crafted some sort of Goron armour. There is the Zora Armour after all.

If that is the case, then he is very well experienced beyond this game - which gets me thinking what other things that he could of done for our quest other than the Biggoron Sword smithing.

Hmmmm, going by your previous post, perhaps he eats those large rocks that roll down from the summit. They seem to be more to his scale, haha.
What do you reckon of the idea that perhaps it's the same Biggoron across the games?

Biggoron eats Volvagias and King Dodongos.
Well, he can't go into Dodongo's Cavern, which is their main food supply, due to his size and I doubt that there is anything edible where he hangs around at. Perhaps the other gorons deliver to him rocks from the cavern.

Makes you wonder what he eats; the Gorons eat rocks from Death Mountain, so Biggoron must have a real appetite on him.
Also, the simplicity of the names amuses me. He's Biggoron with "big" in the name, and his brother has "medi" which means to be in the middle or medium.

Since he is a goron, he has the ability to roll. He probably made that large pathway going up the mountain where the avalanche rains down upon you, and Medigoron made the other medium-sized pathways.
Dec 28, 11 at 3:26am
Say goodbye to half of Hyrule. xD You have to wonder if he's made to not roll or something for that exact reason. Then again, that makes having him live right up at the summit a bit awkward. I like to think they would've used him for helping to build the area.
Dec 28, 11 at 3:10am
Haha. Not only would he destroy Ganon's Tower, but say good-bye to poor Kakariko Village.
...Best if he stays up on the mountain.
