Eyerok is a stone creature comprised only of two hands, with each containing a single eye (the boss's weak spot). Because of its stone-like appearance, Eyerok might be based on a golem (a creature that was said to have been brought back to life through magic and enchanted earth).
In Super Mario 64 and Super Mario 64 DS, Eyerok is the boss of Shifting Sand Land. The Eyerok is a spirit composed of two giant rock hands with eyes on his palms. He resides in a secret room in the pyramid but Mario must find a secret entrance to reach his room. It will open when he's been on the top of all four of the pillars on the level. He is fought on a platform that's surrounded by pits on three sides. He can attack by slamming down his fists on Mario which takes 3 HP. The Eyerok can also try to push Mario down from the platform, causing an instant death. The Eyerok can only be attacked when his eyes are open which is only when one of the hands aren't attacking. After both of his eyes have been punched three times, the Eyerok will be defeated and Mario will earn another Power Star.'
He is fought on star four in the mission Standing on the Four Pillars in Shifting Sand Land and is fought in exactly the same way in Super Mario 64 DS, in this game, Luigi and Wario can also fight the Eyerok, while Yoshi cannot break the seal leading to the Eyerok, he can break the seal (whilst wearing another character's Cap) and then change back to regular Yoshi before entering the hatch). Yoshi can beat the Eyerok with Sweep Kicks or by burning it by swallowing some fire from the nearby Fire Torch. Additionally, Luigi can easily reach the ledge leading to the Eyerok's room without the need of standing on the Pillars by using tornado backflip and spinning to the ledge.
The Eyerok appeared again in Mario Kart DS as the second boss in mission mode. He must be fought by Mario in this version and he can be defeated by shooting green shells at him when his eyes are open. He isn't completely defenseless, as he whirls around in the air and comes down, crushing Mario and making him lose a balloon. He also goes ballistic after you hit his eyes two times. He repeatedly comes down hard. So if you wanna be in his way when he goes crazy, thinking your brave, go right ahead. You will get flattened. No doubt about it.
Eyerok can also be split into two words Eye and rock, which is how Nintendo created the name. There is also the pun "I rock" in his name.
Eyerok has the most health in Super Mario 64 and Super Mario 64 DS as both his hands have 3 HP each, giving him 6 HP in total. Not even Bowser's final round has that much health.
