Dungeon Boss: Twilit Parasite, DIABABA Forest Temple
Diababa
Threat:
Attacks:
  Contact Purple Fog
  Head Attack
  Purple Mist
 
Twilit Parasite Diababa

 - The battle with Diababa is broken down into two phases. The first phases consists of Link battling with what appears to be the hands of Diababa. The hands are in the form of two massive big babas. An area of purple fog blocks Links path towards the big babas so he must battle them from a distance. There are a few bomblings that are located within the purple fog area.

 - All that Link really needs to do is use the gale boomerang on one of the bomblings in the room and then target one of the big babas. Release the gale boomerang a the bombling will blow up within the mouth of the big baba. It only takes one bomb to each of the big babas to send them falling into the purple fog.

 - Diababa only has one attack during this early phase of the battle. The two big babas will pull back and then toss themselves towards Link to attack. Just quickly roll to your left or right, or simply just use your shield to block the attacks. Once both big babas have been defeated and have sunk into the purple fog, Diababa will show its entire self.

 - The second phase of the battle begins and you’ll notice an orange like ball, which acts as a tongue of Diababa. This will turn out to be Diababa’s weakness. There really is not much Link can do at all in this early part of this phase. Just run around the room avoiding the dash attacks by the big babas of Diababa.

 - Eventually Ook, the baboon that we fought earlier, will appear and he’s holding a bombling. He’ll jump on a nearby branch and swing back and forth across the boss chamber. At this point, use the gale boomerang and target the bombling that the baboon is holding. Next, target the head of Diababa and release the boomerang. This will bring the bomb and explode it in Diababa’s face, sending him crashing down to the floor right next to Link. Use your sword and swipe the orange eye as many times as you can until Diababa gets back up.

 - Diababa will now unleash its most fierce attack when it shoots purple slime out of its mouth. It is quite hard to avoid but just keep moving and try to get to one of the corners of the room. Eventually the attack will stop and Ook will return, holding another bombling.

 - Repeat the same process by targeting the bomb and then Diababa’s head and it will come crashing down. Slash at him with your sword a few more times until it gets back up. That is about all there is to Diababa. After hitting a few bomblings and several sword swipes, Diababa will be defeated.
 
summary:
 - Use the gale boomerang and target a bombling that is floating over the purple fog. Then target one of the big babas and release the gale boomerang and it will take the bomb and explode the big baba. Do this for both babas to complete the first phase of the battle.

 - Wait until Ook appears and he'll be carrying a bombling. Target the bombling with the gale boomerang and then target the head of Diababa. After hitting it with a bomb, it will come crashing to the floor. Slash away at its eyeball that sticks out of its tongue. Repeat this process until Diabba has been defeated.
 

Dungeon Boss: Twilit Igniter: FYRUS Goron Mines
Fyrus
Threat:
Attacks:
  Contact
  Chain Smack
  Flame Burst
 
Fyrus

 - The shiny red eye on the head of Fyrus is the weak spot. Link is not able to Z-target Fyrus because of its humungous size. Instead, keep your distance and manually aim an arrow at the red eye on Fyrus's head. Once you hit him, Fyrus will be stunned for a moment so quickly run behind him and grab the chains that are attached to his legs. Equip the iron boots and then pull back on the chain. It will tighten and then send Fyrus crashing to the floor. Now run to the head of Fyrus and you can now Z-target him. Slash away with yout sword, dealing as many shots as possible until Fyrus gets back up on his feet.

Aim at the red jewell.
Aim at the red jewell.
Grab one of the shackles.
Grab one of the shackles.

 - Fyrus has a few attacks, one of which is tossing his shackles towards Link. Additionally, he'll contract air and release a fire burst in all directions that is quite damaging. The best way to avoid these attacks is simply to stay on attack. He simply is to slow and you have plenty of chances to hit him before he can even attack. Three knock downs of Fyrus, followed by sword swipes should finish him off.
Pull on the shackles.

Slash at Fyrus's head.

summary:
 - Keep your distance from Fyrus and pull out your bow and arrow. Aim an arrow right at the eye on the head of Fyrus to stun him. Quickly run behind Fyrus and grab one of the shackles. Equip the iron boots and pull back which will cause Fyrus to trip, and he'll go crashing to the floor. Run towards his head and slash away. Repeat this process a few times until Fyrus has been defeated.
 

Dungeon Boss: Twilit Aquatic: MORPHEEL Lakebed Temple
Morpheel
Threat:
Attacks:
  Gobble
  Bombfish
 
Morpheel

 - As you may have guessed, that eye you saw is Morpheel's weak spot in the first phase of the battle. It will move around through the various tentacles but can be z-targeted. Pull out the clawshot and pull the eyeball out of the tentacle. With the iron boots also equipped, just slash at the eyeball and it will then return to Morpheel's body.

Pull out its eye...
Pull out its eye...
...and slash away.
...and slash away.

 - Try not to stand in a single place since Morpheel will use his tentacles to grab Link and then toss him into its mouth. He'll then spit you out, so immediately remove the iron boots and swim away, otherwise you'll fall right back into its mouth. Link can swing at Morpheel's tentacles when they try to grab him and they will retract. Morpheel will also toss bombfish towards Link. Striking them with your sword will activate the bomb, so quickly swim away or toss them to the side.

Morpheel reveals itself.

Try not to get swallowed.
Try not to get swallowed.
 - Repeat the process of pulling the eye out and slashing it with your sword a few times until the first phase of the battle is complete.

 - Morpheel will then come out from underground and reveal its entire gigantic body. The weakspot is now the eye on top of its head. Un-equip the iron boots and swim after Morpheel. Once you are close enough z-target its eye. Use the clawshot and it will bring Link onto its back. From there, just slash away with your sword, repeatedly hitting its eye. After a few hits, Link will be tossed off of Morpheel's back.

The eye is on its back.
The eye is on its back.
Slash away with your sword.
Slash away with your sword.
 - Repeat the same process once again, chasing Morpheel around the room. Since Morpheel swims rather quickly, it's hard to chase after the eye, so try to intersect its path from other angles, sometimes even going head on in front of its mouth. Just be sure to claw on to its eye before it has a chance to suck you in.

 - The only attack Morpheel has at this stage of the battle is swallowing Link, so try not to get sucked in. After latching on three times and swinging at its eye, Morpheel will be defeated.
Summary:
 - In the first phase, use the iron boots and clawshot to pull the eye away from its tentacles. Slash at its eye repeatedly until it retreats back. Repeat this process until Morpheel comes out from under the ground.

 - Target the eye that is on top of Morpheel's head. Use the clawshot to pull yourself over and then slash away with your sword. Repeat this process several times until Morpheel has been defeated.
 

Dungeon Boss: Twilit Fossil: STALLORD Arbiter's Grounds
Stallord
Threat:
Attacks:
  Spikes
  Toxic
  Fireball
 
Stallord

 - In the first phase of the battle, Link must attack the spine of Stallord, which is attached to the sand in the center of the room. Use the spinner and stick to the railing on the side of the room to pick up some speed. You'll then need to jump off the railing and use the spinner to spin towards the center of the room. Once you get close, press B to jump while on the spinner and jump right into the neck of Stallord.

Spin around to the backside of Stallord

 - Part of the Neck of Stallord will break. Back on the railing, you need to repeat the same process two more times. However, Stallord will begin to summon skeletons from the sand that block Link's path and the third time around these skeletons will surround Stallord's neck. You must use the jump attack to defeat these guys as well.

Dodge the skeletons

Spin in the small hole

 - Stallord will also shoot out some sort of toxic gas from his mouth, but most of the battle you'll be either on the railing or attack him from his back, so the gas is rather useless. Perhaps the gravest threat to Link in this simple phase is the spikes that also spin around the railing. If you hear spikes nearby, be sure to jump off the railing. After three shots with the spinner, Stallord will sink under the sand.

 - The battle isn't over just yet. All the sand in the room will now sink away, and Stallord will now be lying motionless on the ground. Walk to the center of the room and there is another small area where Link can use the spinner. Do so and begin spinning away, which will create a tall central tower in the middle of the room.

Switch railings to dodge
Switch railings to dodge
Hit Stallord with the spinner

 - Once it has risen to the top, Link will turn around and realize the massive skull of Stallord has awakened and he knocks Link to the bottom of the room. If you look at the walls, there are railings now on inner circle tower as well as the outer walls. Link must use the inner railing to scale the tower. Stallord's massive skull will appear while Link is scaling the inner tower. Stallord will shoot a ball of fire towards Link, which in order to avoid, he must jump with the spinner. He will jump to the outer wall, where Stallord will turn his attention and shoot another fireball. Jump once again and repeat this process until you have dodged 4 fireballs, at which point Stallord will move close to Link. Link can then jump off the railing and hit Stallord with the spinner. Its massive skull will tumble to the floor. Run over to the top of its mouth and strike that repeatedly at the piece that Zant stuck inside of Stallord. After several strikes, Stallord will get up.

 - The process starts all over so get on the spinner and start rolling up the inner circle. This time however, there are other spikes rolling along the rails, so you'll have to jump across more frequently. Once you've dodged 4 more fireballs from Stallord, he'll fall to the floor. Repeat the same process of striking its head until it gets up again. The third time around you'll see spikes on both the inner and outer wall, making it even more difficult. After the long battle, Stallord will be defeated.

Summary:
 - In the first phase, spin around the room and hit Stallord's back with the Spinner. After 3 attacks he will fall to the ground. Spin in the hole to raise a platform, and initiate phase 2.

 - Spin around the railings that are on the platform and the wall, switching to avoid attacks. Hit Stallord with the spinner when he gets close, and then attack the sword in his head with your own sword.
 

Dungeon Boss: Twilit Ice Mass: BLIZZETA Snowpeak Ruins
Blizzeta
Threat:
Attacks:
  Contact
  Ice Spikes
 
Blizzeta

 - The battle begins with Blizzeta as an ice statue in the center of the room. Just pull out the ball and chain and hit her repeatedly with it. Once you hit her, she will start moving around the room rapidly. Just continue to z-target her and hitting her with the ball and chain.

 - After hitting her a few times with the ball, she will start to shoot out some mini-freezards. They really are just a distraction. Just completely ignore them and keep hitting Blizzeta with the ball and chain. After each hit, Blizzeta will get smaller and begin moving quicker until you’ve hit her 8 times. At this point she will completely break from the ice and then lift into the air.

 - The next phase of the battle begins and Blizzeta will be enclosed with more ice, with spikes of ice around her. The ice spikes that are around her will attack you. You can see their reflection in the ice when they are about to attack. Quickly roll out of the way when they do fall on you. Once the ice drops, pull out the ball and chain and break as many of them as you can.

Keep breaking the barrier
Keep breaking at the barrier
Almost there

 - After ice spikes attack, Blizzeta will drop all the ice spikes in a circle and then Blizzeta will drop in the middle of it. Roll out of the way of the circle and then once Blizzeta has landed, use the ball and chain to hit her. Afterwards, she will float back in the air and regenerate the ice spikes. The attacks with the spikes will start over. Repeat this process over again. Three hits to Blizzeta with the ball and chain will defeat her.

Dungeon Boss: Twilit Arachnid: ARMOGOHMA Temple of Time
Armogohma
Threat:
Attacks:
  Gohma larva
  Fire laser
 
Armogohma

 - If it isn’t obvious enough, Armogohma’s weak spot is the giant eye that is on its back. Use the bow to shoot an arrow at the eye when it is open and Armogohma will tumble to the floor. Equip the dominion rod and use it on one of the four statues in the corners of the room to activate. Then use the dominion rod once again and the large statue you selected will use its powerful fist to smash Armogohma. The giant spider will then crawl back up the wall and return to the ceiling.

 - While Armogohma is on the ceiling, you can tell exactly where it is, because it will be covering the hole where light shines in. Armogohma will also lay a bunch of gohma eggs on the floor. These egg gohmas will hatch into small baby gohma and will swarm towards Link. Defeat them all with the various sword techniques and turn your attention back towards Armogohma. Another attack of Armogohma’s is to use its eye to create a line of fire. This is pretty easily avoidable and can be blocked with the hylian shield.

 - After three fist smashes from the statues, it will appear as if Armogohma has been defeated, but not quite. The remains of Armogohma’s eye will still remain and it will be carried around by several hatched baby gohmas. You can slash at the baby gohmas and the eye, but the faster way to defeating the remains of Armogohma is once again with the massive statues. The eye will walk in a counterclockwise pattern around the room. Once it arrives in front of a statue, activate it and smash the eye with one last fist smash and Armogohma will be defeated.

Summary:
 - While Armogohma is walking around the ceiling, shoot her eye with the Bow. When she falls to the ground, run to a nearby statue and use the Dominion Rod to activate it, and B to smash her. Do this 3 times and left will be the eye. Once it moves near another statue, smash the eye and it will be defeated.
 

Boss: Twilit Dragon: Argorok City in the Sky
Argorok
Threat:
Attacks:
  Flame
  Fall from pillar
 
Argorok

 - At the beginning of the battle, Argorok will fly across around and come sweeping across the platform with the intent of blowing Link off with the burst of wind. He'll also hover over the middle of the platform and flap his wings, gusting wind towards Link. You can equip your iron boots and the gust will have no effect on Link.

And bring him crashing to the ground

 - Once Argorok is flapping his wings in the center of the area, you can Z-target its tail. Do so and use the clawshot to grab onto it. If you don't have them equipped already, equip the iron boots. The weight will bring the dragon crashing to the floor and much of its armor will break. Argorok will then start flying around once again. Argorok will try to blow Link off the cliff, so keep your iron boots handy.

 - Argorok will eventually land on top of one of those massive pillars. Use the double clawshots and go from grating to grating on the pillars until you reach the top of the pillar. Be careful as Argorok will breathe fire out of its mouth during this phase as well. At the top of the pillars equip the iron boots and target Argorok's tail. Doing so will bring it crashing to the ground once again. More armor will break off and a weak spot will appear on Argorok's back. Argorok will then shutter and all of its armor will fall of its body. The rain and thunder begin to set in during this phase. The rain will cause a bunch of peahats to rise into the air, even higher than the massive pillars.

 - Climb to the top of the pillars and then claw onto the peahats. Argorok will continue to try to breathe fire at you while you are hanging from the peahats. Z-target the peahats and continue swinging across the peahats. Keep going in a circle until Argorok tries to breathe fire. You should be able to get behind him, at which point you can target its weak spot at the back of his body. Grab on over with the clawshot and slash repeatedly with your sword and Argorok will come crashing to the floor.

 - Argorok will get back up and fly around. Climb the pillars and grab on the peahats once again. After a few hits to Argorok, he will begin to adapt and change his fire breathing strategy. He will now breathe in one direction and then turn around and breathe in another. This will force Link to change directions on the peahats that he is hooking to. After he stops breathing fire and you get behind him, once again target his back and then slash away. Three times on its back slashing away should defeat Argorok.

Summary:
 - When the battle starts, equip the Iron Boots and wait for Argorok to try and blow you off the platform. Take out the Double Clawshot, and aim at his tail. This will bring him down to the ground and damage him. Do this once more and he'll change up his tactics.

 - Now, use the Double Clawshot to climb up the pillars. Use the peahats to make your way around the arena, and to Argorok's backside while he shoots fire. From here you can clawshot his back, and attack away at his weak spot. Continue doing this until he's defeated.

After several balls are shot your way, Zant will teleport to another area and repeat the same process. Immediately when Zant teleports, Z-target him and toss the gale boomerang. Zant will fall into the liquid below and bounce towards the land. Run up to him and slash away with your sword. Just hit him a few more times and phase 1 of Zant will be complete.

Once you hit the ground a massive head mask of Zant will emerge from underground. The mask will open and Zant will be inside, shooting his standard projectiles towards Link. Z-target him and use your shield to block his attacks. Once his attacks are over, use the clawshot to pull Zant out of the mask and slash at him. He will next appear in the massive mask and it will burrow underwater. This time four masks will appears and the center ground will cave in. Only one of the masks will open that contains Zant. Repeat this same process of waiting for him to finish his attack then pull him out with the clawshot. After some more strikes with the sword phase 3 of Zant will be complete.

 - The next phase takes place back in the Forest Temple, but this time we are in the mini-boss room where we fought baboon. Change back into the hero’s clothes and take off the iron boots. Zant will jump around the various pillars in this room and then finally settle at a pillar. He’ll begin to shoot his projectiles at you once again. Roll into the pillar that he is standing on twice and Zant will tumble to ground. Unleash a series of sword slashes and then the process will start over. Keep rolling into the pillar that Zant is on and unleash more sword slashes until Zant has been defeated, completing phase 4 of the battle.

Threat:
Attacks:
  Foot Stomp
 - The next phase takes place in the bedroom of the Snowpeak Ruins. Upon entering, Zant will super-size and fly around the room. Watch Zant’s reflection on the ice and wait for him to come crashing down to the floor. Roll out of the way and then use the ball and chain to hit Zant’s foot. Once you hit him, Zant will shrink down greatly so that he is just a fraction of the size of Link. Run on over and slash at him repeatedly. Zant will eventually grow back to his humongous size. Repeat the same process a few times until you’ve defeated him and phase 5 of Zant is complete.

 - The 6th and final phase takes place on the steps of Hyrule Field, just south of Castle Town. Zant grows swords has hands and begins trying to slash at Link. Zant will also begin spinning rapidly and moving towards Link. When he is just slashing at you, use the back slice to attack him. When he is spinning, just dodge out of the way. He’ll get tired from the spinning and this will allow Link to run and slash away with his sword. As the battle progresses, Zant will get faster and faster. Just keep hitting him whenever you can, and avoid his crazy spinning attacks.

 - The weak spot of Ganon is the shining silver scar that is on Ganon’s belly. The battle will begin with Ganon running around the room, knocking down all the pillars that are in the way. Ganon will then disappear into a portal. Several red portals appear, but one of them eventually turns purple and Ganon will come running out of it. Once Ganon enters a portal, keep your back against the nearest wall and pull out the bow and arrow. When portals start appearing close to each other and there is a pulsing sound, Ganon is coming out. Once he appears, nail him with an arrow right in the forehead. He will be stunned so run on over and slash away at his scarred silver belly.

 - When Ganon is hit he will sometimes come out of a portal from above Link and land directly on you. Just quickly try to roll around to avoid him landing on you. Just repeat this process a few times and Ganon will catch on. Now, Ganon will jump into the air when you attempt to hit him with an arrow. Switch to Wolf form, and wait for him to come out of a portal. When he comes close, press and HOLD the A button, causing a fight of power to start with Ganon. Throw him over to a side and from here you can attack his weak spot until he's finally defeated.

Summary:
- Wait for one of the portals around the room to turn blue, and Ganon will come out. Shoot him in the head with an arrow, and he'll fall to the ground. Attack his stomach, and repeat the process again. Soon, he'll avoid being shot, so turn to wolf form. Wait for him to come out of the portal, then press and hold A when he's close. Use the control stick to throw him to a side, and then attack his weak spot again. Repeat this process until he's down.

 - Midna will then fully revive Princess Zelda. After some chit chat between Princess Zelda and Midna, Ganon will awaken with a fire vision of his head. Midna will use the power of the fused shadows and warp Princess Zelda and Link out of the Castle. Midna then battles with Ganon. Next we see, Princess Zelda and Link are somewhere in Hyrule Field and Ganondorf appears, carrying the fused shadow that Midna wore on her head. Ganondorf summons an army and gallops towards Link and Zelda on his house.

 - Princess Zelda then summons the four Spirits of Light. After a short scene, Link and Zelda are both on top of Epona. Princess Zelda will try to slow Ganondorf down with her light arrows.

 - The battle begins with Ganondorf and it has a very similar feel to the first battle with King Bulbin. Ride around the field with Epona and try to stick as close to Ganondorf as possible. Z-target Ganondorf when you are close enough and Princess Zelda will shoot a light arrow. Once she hits Ganondorf he will be stunned. Quickly get over to where he is and slash away with the master sword.

 - Just keep following after Ganondorf, Z-targeting him so Zelda can stun him with a Light Arrow. After several hits, Ganondorf will fall off his horse onto the ground below. He will then get up and begin mocking Link with a laugh. He calls it an impressive looking sword, but nothing more. Ganondorf then pulls out his own blade and a barrier surrounds Link and Ganondorf. The final battle then begins with the Dark Lord GANONDORF.

 - The battle is a classic sword fight. Don’t bother trying to use the shield attack as it will only hurt you. The back slice is the best method for attack Ganondorf as he simply doesn’t block it very well. Once you connect with a back slice, slash repeatedly at Ganondorf until he blocks one of your attacks.

 - Ganondorf will do a variety of sword attacks, all of which can be easily avoided or blocked. Once of his attacks is a massive sword slash at Link. The A button will pop up with ‘Chance’ written on it. Press A and your swords will collide with each other. Press A repeatedly and Ganondorf will be pushed away and become vulnerable for a few seconds. Slash away with your sword a few times until he blocks your attack.

 - Just keep using the back slice to hit him. Back slice to your left (on the Wii version), because Ganondorf is left handed and that will keep you further away from his sword. Another very awkward but effective strategy involves the fishing rod. Toss the fishing rod and Ganondorf will look at it confused for a second. Then quickly slash at him with your sword and you should be able to hit him from the front. Once he has been knocked down, target him and finish him with a final blow.

Summary:
- Use the Back Slice to your advantage, as most other attacks will not work. The only thing you can really do is chip away at him until he finally falls to the ground, and you can use the Ending Blow to finish him off for good.

Summary:
- Ganondorf comes in 4 different forms, and each will test what you have learned throughout the game. Take your time, and constantly chip away at his health until you can give him the finishing blow.

  Boomerang
 
Ook

 - Ook, The baboon we saw earlier, is waiting for you with his boomerang in hand. He’ll begin the fight by tossing the boomerang towards the ceiling, releasing two baba serpents. These pesky enemies could be annoying and it is best to defeat them as soon as possible. Ook will jump from pillar to pillar occasionally tossing the boomerang towards Link.

 - In order to defeat him, wait until he tosses the boomerang and then quickly roll into the pillar the baboon is standing on. He will lose his balance and when the boomerang comes back, it will knock Ook off the pillar. His weakness just happens to be his butt, so slash at it with your sword over and over. He’ll eventually get up and jump back on one of the pillars.

Dangoro

 - This mini-boss battle is really quite simple. Stand near the center of the magnetic platform at the start of the dual. Dangoro’s belly is the weak spot, but it can only be harmed when Dangoro is getting ready to attack. Simply stand right in front of him, and once he winds his arm back, just slash madly at his belly. The jump attack works most effectively, rather than using just the sword attacks. The sword attacks won’t be enough to ground him, so if you do choose this method, just move away after 2 or 3 hits to avoid his attack. His fist is quite strong and at times goes through your shield.

Watch for the smash...

 - After Dangoro has been grounded, he will curl up into a ball and roll towards Link. At this point, equip your iron boots and grab the Goron as it rolls at you. Grab him and toss him to the side. If you are close enough to the edge, he will be tossed into the lava. After several hits, he will start using his hands as a massive club and slam right in front of his body. Just avoid his attacks and repeat the same process. Three tosses in the lava should do the trick.

Deku Toad

 - The large deku toad will begin the battle by hatching a bunch of little toados from his back. The little toados are your main concern, so start slashing at them one by one. There are way too many to Z-target them individually, so just use spin attacks to attack several of them at once. Keep sword slashing until all of them have been defeated.

 - Once all the little toados have been defeated, the deku toad will jump in the air and try to land on top of you. You will be able to see its shadow as it falls from the ceiling. It is best to role to the side of the toad, rather than towards its head. The giant toad will miss and stun himself when he hits the floor. Quickly run to its mouth and target its tongue. Slash at it as many times as you can until the deku toad gets back up.

 - Once the toad awakes, it will shake and more toados will fall to the ground. Defeat them just as before and the toad will jump in the air. Once again roll out of the way and once the toad is stunned, slash at its tongue. Repeat this process over and over until the deku toad has been defeated.

Mini-Boss: Death Sword Arbiter's Grounds
Death Sword
Threat:

 - Death Sword is invisible, so you'll have to use wolf Link and activate your senses. The first phase of this battle is incredibly easy. Just wait for Death Sword to attack with its sword, dodge it, and then the sword will get stuck in the ground. At this point the undead prisoner will glow blue, so just like the Poe's from before, jump and attack it.

 - At this point, the boss is now visible, so you no longer need to use your senses. Return to human form and use your arrows to attack the boss. You won't be able to Z-target the boss so carefully aim your arrow shots. One successful arrow will make the boss start flying around the room rapidly. Eventually it will try to swing its sword at you. Just dodge the attack and the sword will be stuck in the ground. Quickly target the foe and slash at it with your sword. One swipe will have the enemy fall to the floor, at which point you can repeatedly slash at him.

 - Use Wolf Link's senses and dodge Death Sword's massive sword. When it's stuck in the ground, target Death Sword to attack it. In the next phase, change to Human Link and target Death Sword with an arrow. Dodge the sword attack from Death Sword, and when the sword is stuck in the ground again, slash at him with your word. Now that it is on the ground, repeatedly slash away with your sword. Repeat this process to defeat Death Sword.

Threat:

 - Darkhammer has only one attack and that is to sling the ball and chain towards Link. It is quite damaging and if you don’t know exactly what to do, it can be hard to avoid. You might notice there are several targets along the ceiling. Once darkhammer has gotten close to you, use the clawshot to hook over to one of the targets.

 - Once you fall to the ground quickly z-target darkhammer. It will toss its ball and chain out at you, so quickly side jump. It takes a while for darkhammer to pull his weapon back in, so quickly run to its backside and slash at its tail that is sticking out. Now run to the other side of the room away from darkhammer. He will start swinging the ball and chain once again. Repeat the same process a second time and slash at his tail. Two sets of tail slashes should enough to defeat him.

Darknut
Threat:
Attacks:
 Damage Sword Swing (Armored Darknut)
 Damage Sword Slam (Amored Darknut)
 Damage Sword Swing (Unarmored Darknut)
 
Darknut

 - This enemy is filled with loads of armor and makes very good use of his shield. It uses its massive sword to attack, but this can be blocked with your shield. The back slice works well against the darknut but even that will be blocked quite often. Your best bet is to just hold out your shield and keep side jumping and when he appears vulnerable strike with your sword. Use the shield attack and helm splitter if the attacks pop-up. Each time you hit the darknut a piece of armor will fall off of him. After several hits, all his armor will be removed and he’ll toss away his massive sword and pull out a more traditional blade.

 - The second phase of the battle is quite simple. You can simply wait for him to attack, dodge its strikes, and then slash at him repeatedly with your own sword slashes. Alternatively, you can use the back slice attack and the darknut will block. However, once it blocks the attack, it will be vulnerable for a few seconds at which Link can slash at him with his sword. After this second phase has been defeated, the gate at the east end of the room will open.

summary:
 - Darknut will start off completly armored, which will make it hard to actually hit him with your sword. Mortal Draws and Helm Splitters work well, and even rolling around to his back works well too. When his armor is chipped away, he'll be completly defenseless, allowing you to go on the attack. Keep chipping away at him until he is finally defeated.
 

Mini-Boss: Aeralfos City in the Sky
Aeralfos
Threat:
Attacks:
 Damage Dive
 
Aeralfos

 - These creatures are part of the same family as the lizalfos and dinolfos, except, they can fly. While fighting this creature, watch out for the blue blocks that are around the perimeter of the room. Look closely at the aeralfos and you'll notice that his shield is actually a clawshot target. Run around the room as you Z-target the aeralfos. Once he is ready to attack, he'll hold his sword back and shield forward. Use the clawshot and Link will pull the aeralfos closer. Strike at him with several sword slashes and he'll regain his footing. After a short while, he'll return to the air. Repeat the same process again until you've struck him 7 times with the mastersword.

 - After this, the aeralfos will fly around and leave through one of the windows in the room. This phase is nearly identical to the first phase, except the aeralfos will fly in and out through the four windows in the room. He also floats a bit higher, which means Link cannot always Z-target him, so you'll have to manually aim a bit if he is too high.

 - Once he appears from a window he'll immediately be ready to attack you, so use your clawshot to pull him forward.

After several hits, the aeralfos will finally be defeated.

Summary:
 - At the start of the battle, the Aeralfos will by flying around. When he stops to attack, use the Clawshot on his shield to bring him closer, at which point you can start attacking him with the sword. After a few hits, he'll start flying in and out of the room.
