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

The Wind Waker

A Mothula appears in The Wind Waker as a mini-boss of the Forbidden Woods. To damage Mothula, Link must either use parry attacks or stun it with the Deku Leaf before using combo attacks with the sword. Link is rewarded the Boomerang for defeating the Mothula.

Winged Mothulas attack Link by flying into him from above, while wingless Mothulas attack Link by ramming into him. Both types spray dozens of Morths which attach to Link and slow him down. After Link has acquired the Fire Arrows and the Ice Arrows, he can shoot those at Mothula for a one hit kill.

Spirit Tracks

Mothulas are simple enemies who only have two attacks. Their first attack is to throw a skull at Link. The skull can be deflected using the Whirlwind, which sends it back at the Mothula. Using the Whirlwind at them when they are not attacking causes them to simply deflect it back at Link. Their second attack is when Link is stunned by the Whirlwind they dive towards him, dealing damage. Link can deflect their skulls back at them with the Whirlwind and then attack with the sword to defeat then.
