Bio-electric Anemone: Barinade, more simply known as Barinade, is a giant jellyfish-like creature and the Boss of Inside Jabu-Jabu's Belly, the third Dungeon in Ocarina of Time.[1] Defeating this villainous creature helps Link save Ruto and eventually acquire one of the Spiritual Stones, the Zora's Sapphire.


This giant jellyfish-like creature appears as soon as Link enters the boss room. During the first phase, Link must detach Barinade from the ceiling with the aid of the Boomerang. This is done rather easily by targeting the tentacles and tossing the Boomerang.

Once Barinade is on the ground, the Bari that were attached to the boss come off and begin spinning around it. At this point, Link can use the Boomerang on its vulnerable body, paralyzing it. Whenever Barinade is paralyzed, Link can either attack the Bari or directly strike Barinade's body. Link can attack with the Kokiri Sword, using a jump attack to do more damage.[2] Hitting Barinade during this phase will also cause some of the nearby Bari to die. When all the Bari have been defeated, the second phase of the battle begins.

Barinade rises out of the ground, revealing and releasing more Bari. It then begins to move quickly around the arena with the Bari spinning around it rapidly. Link needs to continuously throw the Boomerang at Barinade's body to eventually hit it and paralyze it yet again. Once it is paralyzed, Link can then either defeat the Bari or Barinade itself. This time, defeating the Bari weakens its defenses, as it creates a gap in the spinning circle that orbits Barinade when it chases Link. That gap makes it much easier and quicker to hit Barinade's body again once he is no longer stunned and resumes chasing Link. Continue to attack Barinades body until he has been defeated.


After Link is successful in defeating Barinade, Barinade's remains turn into a Heart Container. Once Link grabs it, he meets with Ruto, who then bestows upon him the third and final Spiritual Stone, Zora's Sapphire.[3][4]

  2. "Hey, let's work on some moves! To jump sideways while (Z) Targeting, press (A) as you move right or left. To do a backflip while (Z) Targeting, press (A) as you move backwards. To do a roll attack while (Z) Targeting, press (A) as you move forward. While you roll, you can avoid damage. If you have your sword ready while (Z) Targeting, you can do a jump attack by pressing (A)! A jump attack does double damage! You can use (Z) Targeting on the stone next to me, so let's practice!" — Kokiri, Ocarina of Time.
  3. "You mean the Spiritual Stone of Water, Zora's Sapphire, don't you?" — Ruto, Ocarina of Time.
  4. "My mother gave it to me and said I should give it only to the man who will be my husband. You might call it the Zora's Engagement Ring! All right! I'll give you my most precious possession: Zora's Sapphire!" — Ruto, Ocarina of Time.
