  3. During this phase, Ganondorf will now be using ranged attacks, try to dodge them as much as possible.

Flame Gleeok

  • Rayne Highlands

Phase 2 & 3:
  1. This time he will be riding a plane (he’s freaking annoying, I know). The same method applies, shoot using your bow and arrow and after his last upgrade, activate your rocket launcher.
  2. The 3rd phase would be while using a raft. You can try to hop onto Kohga’s raft and use your melee weapon to attack (I suggest you get rid of his minions first before doing this).

Temple Bosses

Location

How to Beat

Colgera

  • The Wind Temple
Phase 1:
  1. Patience is key!
  2. While you are in the air, Colgera will shoot its spikes. This will give you the opportunity to hit its weak spot.
  3. Use Fire Fruit and attach it to your arrow(you can use a normal arrow if you don’t have any), aim and shoot the exposed weak spot of Colgera.
  4. Once you successfully hit its weak spots, it’ll enter the portal and appear below you so make sure you dodge.
  5. Wait for yet another Spike Attack. Aim and shoot the weak spot.
Phase 2:
  1. Try to avoid the tornadoes as much as possible.
  2. After the cut scene, you will notice that Colgera’s other weak spots are hidden under the middle and bottom armor.
  3. Wait for the first Spike attack and shoot that weak spot FIRST before dropping down and shooting for the hidden weak spots.

Marbled Gohma

  • The Fire Temple
Phase 1:
  1. Avoid its legs at all costs!
  2. Wait for Gohma to slam its body on the ground and use Yunobo to charge on one of its legs.
  3. When it is stunned, rush and climb to Gohma’s body then hit its eye using a melee weapon.
Phase 2:
  1. Gohma will jump on top of the ceiling and will throw some time bombs. Use Yunobo to hit this barricade of time bombs and escape. You can also lift them up using your ability to escape.
  2. Again, use Yunobo and aim at its eye. Yunobo will roll up to the ceiling and will eventually hit Gohma. If you’re successful, the boss will fall to the ground and you can hit it via a melee weapon.

Moragia

  • Death Mountain Crater
*You basically need to fly for you to hit the boss’ head. To build a plane, you need 3 components: Skateboard, Wings, and Fans.

  1. Thankfully, this boss fight doesn’t require you to build your own plane. Simply use your Ultrahand Ability and lift the powered plane scattered in the area and place it somewhere you can take off.
  2. Maneuver your way to one of Moragia’s heads then use Yunobo aim and shoot all three heads.

Mucktorok

  • The Water Temple
*Mucktorok will ride a shark in this battle and you have to hit this giant fish to unmount Mucktorok.

Phase 1:
  1. Get Sidon’s buff to acquire a shield and a water-elemental attack.
  2. Approach the shark while avoiding its beam and splash attack then poke it using your melee weapon embued with Sidon’s buff. You can also use a Splash Fruit and attach it to your arrow.
  3. Mucktorok will eventually be ejected from mounting the shark and will run away from you so make sure you inflict as much damage as you can.
Phase 2:
  1. During this phase, Mucktorok will spread sludge on the entire arena.
  2. We suggest you clear some of the sludge as Mucktorok will be able to utilize them and swim away from you. You can use your Zonai device – hydrant to clear the sludge.
  3. Try to aim for the sludge where the shark is swimming.
  4. While Mucktorok is in the air, shoot using your bow and arrow. Rush to the boss and use a melee weapon.

Seized Construct

  • Spirit Temple

2 Phases

Phase 1:
  1. Pick the Spiked Iron Ball on the corner of the arena. Shoot the Construct using your ranged attacks.
  2. While it’s down, approach and hit it using the ball until it flies to the electric barriers.
Phase 2:
  1. Use the same strategy until you defeat the boss.

Queen Gibdo

  • The Lightning Temple
*Make use of Riju’s ability.

2 Encounters

1st Encounter
  1. Try to lure the boss on Riju’s AOE lightning attack and hit the boss using your bow and arrow.
  2. If you hit Queen Gibdo successfully, its body will turn white. That’s your queue to use your melee attack.
2nd Encounter
Phase 1:
  1. Once you found your way inside the temple, use the same strategy using Riju’s ability.
Phase 2:
  1. By depleting its HP to 50%, a cut scene will trigger and the boss will summon Gibdos.
  2. This will be quite annoying to fight the Queen Gibdos with its minions attacking you, so you have to destroy the nests first.
  3. Using Riju’s ability, destroy all nests before attacking the Queen.
