The Ikana Swordsmen are bodyguards to Igos du Ikana. To Battle Igos, Link must face these two in battle first.
The Bodyguards behave basically the Same as most Stalfos, albeit they have higher health. Though the curtain blocking the light must be burnt, and they must be exposed to the light before any attacks are to be atttempted, at which point only their shields protect them. However, if Link doesn't defeat the second swordsmen fast enough, the first swordsman will be revived.
