"Lanmolas
The giant sand worms which inhabit the Desert Palace are guarding the Pendant of Power. When each Lanmola bursts from the sandy floor, it kicks up rocks. Stand to the top, bottom, left or right of the spot where the Lanmola is going to break through the surface of the floor to avoid the rocks. Use the Spin Attack to hit the head of each Lanmola when it appears. The head is the only vulnerable spot. Be extra careful when the Lanmolas are sailing through the air.

Lanmolas are a boss that are encountered in the Desert Palace, the second dungeon in A Link to the Past. Later, the Lanmolas appear in Ganon's Tower as one of the three Mini-Bosses.

Boss Strategy

"The rocks fly from the floor when the Lanmolas surface. Don't linger in one spot for too long because they can detect your location and will appear beneath you."

— Nintendo Power Player's Guide

"Use the Spin Attack on the Lanmolas. Stand near the spot where the Lanmola is going to break through. Time the attack so the Sword strikes the Lanmola in the head."

— Nintendo Power Player's Guide

After Link enters the room, the group of three Lanmolas will start to break through the sandy floor and shoot out rocks in four directions (North, South, East and West). The only vulnerable part of the Lanmola is the head. Link can either strike the three Lanmolas with the Sword, the Bow or Bombs. The Ice Rod can aslo be used and is the most powerful weapon against the Lanmolas. Link can detect where the Lanmolas are going to break through the floor by areas on the ground turning brown and rocky for a couple seconds. Once the Lanmolas fly out of the ground, Link can hit the head of each Lanmola. Each Lanmola can be defeated when Link deals six hits by the Sword to them. Once Link defeats two Lanmolas, the third Lanmola will shoot out rocks in eight directions instead of four. Once Link defeats the last Lanmola, he is rewarded with a Heart Container and the Pendant of Power.
