Gohma (The Legend of Zelda)
AIM AT THE EYES OF GOHMA
Level 6: The Dragon
Gohma first appears in Level 6: The Dragon as the Boss who is guarding the sixth Triforce Shard. Gohma's main attack is to walk laterally shooting fireballs directly down at Link. The best method that can be used to defeat Gohma is first be on the defensive. Link should avoid the fireballs while keeping a close eye on Gohma. Once Gohma opens its eye and reveals its weakspot, the time to attack has come. One shot with the Bow & Arrow will kill Gohma instantly. The Bow is the only weapon that can hurt Gohma, so it is required to complete this Boss fight. This variety is red, and once defeated will allow Link to collect the sixth Triforce Shard.
Level 8: The Lion
Gohma appears for the final time in Level 8: The Lion, but this time is not the Boss; its the mini-boss. There are two Gohmas found in this dungeon, and they are both slightly stronger than the previous Gohma. They take three shots with the Bow to kill, where the last Gohma only took one hit. To show this increase in strength, these Gohmas are blue, not red. These Gohmas act as simple obstacles, and once defeated Link can continue through the dungeon.
