The Horokko (ホロッコ), also known as "Zakobon", is one of the most common and familiar Reaverbots in the Mega Man Legends series. The horn on top of its head makes it almost as tall as Mega Man Volnutt. In the first Mega Man Legends game, the Horokko has the one familiar Reaverbot red eye. In Mega Man Legends 2, they have two smaller hole-like eyes.
Mega Man Legends
There are two varieties of Horokkos that appear in the game. The standard green Horokko fall onto their backs and shoot out bombs, and sometimes spin into intruders. Mega Man can kick their bombs back to them.
The Red Horokko (レッドホロッコ) is a lot faster and more aggressive, and attack with fireballs instead of bombs, alongside the spin attack. The fireballs cannot be shot and destroyed like the bombs, so one must dodge the fireballs.
Mega Man Legends 2
Unlike the previous game, they are now fought on the surface (as random encounters in some areas), as well as underground and even on Elysium. They also appear in many colors with varying strengths, but the majority lost their ability to fire bombs, forcing them to attack by bumping into Mega Man, given the opportunity. The most noticeable are the Fire Horokko (ファイアホロッコ) (that can cause burning damage to Mega Man) and Ice Horokko (アイスホロッコ), both of which can still fire bombs at Mega Man. Mega Man can pick up and throw Horokkos (including the fire and ice varieties), although he will suffer burning damage should he get attacked (fire damage can be prevented by buying the Flame Barrier; however, there is no barrier for ice damage). With a strong Omega-rated armor, Horokkos can be pushed around and destroyed without damaging Mega Man, although he will still suffer the additional elemental damage if he bumps into the fire and ice versions.
In the unrelated crossover Namco × Capcom, both Horokko and Red Horokko from the first game appear as minor enemies. Horokkos attacks by tackling enemies and Red Horokkos by releasing fireballs. Both Horokko and Red Horokko return in the crossover Project × Zone.
Horokkos were also slated to appear in the cancelled Mega Man Legends 3 game.
- Zakopon (ザコポン) was Horokko's name during development of the first Legends game,, but it was changed and only stayed in the game as the name of the stuffed Reaverbot in the junk shop in Apple Market, which is known as Rover outside Japan.
- Horokko was misnamed as Zakobon in Prima's Official Strategy Guide.
- Zako is a Japanese word used to refer to minor enemies.
