Mothula is a boss that is encountered in Poison Moth's Lair, the third dungeon in Oracle of Seasons.

Strategy

Once Link enters the boss room, Mothula will fly down and start attacking imediately. Mothula flys in a circle around the room and shoots fireballs at Link. Link can avoid the fireballs by jumping over them with the Roc's Feather or simply move away from the fireballs. Mothula will also send out Moths for them to defend Mothula and attack Link. These can be avoided or Link can attack its larvae and gain Recovery Hearts. After a short period of time, Mothula will settle on one of the two platforms in the middle of the room, leaving itself open for attack. Like the battle with Moldorm in A Link to the Past, Link can potentially fall into the gaps in the floor and will drop into the room below. He will be forced to reenter the boss chamber by using the trampoline, and the battle will be restarted from the beginning, no matter how much damage has been dealt to Mothula. In order for Link to defeat Mothula, he can equip the Roc's Feather, so he can dodge its attacks and jump onto the two platforms. Once Mothula lands on the platforms, Link gains an advantage and attacks it by using the Sword. After getting damaged enough, Mothula will start to attack when resting on the platforms by shooting out fireballs in all directions. Once Link defeats Mothula, he is rewarded with a Heart Container and the third Essence of Nature, the Bright Sun.
