Vaati Reborn is the first of three final bosses in The Minish Cap. Vaati uses the power of the Light Force to transform his body into this evil sorcerer known as Vaati Reborn. This phase of Vaati awfully resembles Patra from The Legend of Zelda.
|The sorcerer Vaati took this form after draining the power of the light force from Princess Zelda. The evil beams from his eyes are devastating.|
The battle begins with Vaati sending out two small eyes that spin around him quickly. Standing where you started and swinging your sword should destroy them quick, causing a big eye on his stomach to open. This is his weak spot, so swing like crazy at it. If you take too long to destroy the eyes, he may shoot fireballs in random directions and eventually pull in the eyes and send a small, dark cloud after you. These clouds deal heavy damage if they hit you. However, you can suck them in with the Gust Jar or just outrun them. The eye will eventually close and he will shake around for a moment, invulnerable.
The next stage of the battle is similar, except he now brings out four eyes to spin around. These eyes will also stop every so often and shoot beams straight down the screen. Vaati may also teleport around occasionally. Repeat the process of destroying the eyes and slashing at his big eye. When the big eye shuts, he will shake about more and bring out four more eyes.
In this stage he will move around more often and teleport more, but the process is the same. After the eyes are destroyed, however, he will teleport to avoid you hitting his big eye. After the eye shuts, he will shake about more and bring out four eyes covered by dark clouds.
After slashing his eye enough, he will start exploding and the screen will go white. You'll then be teleported to the next part of the battle, Vaati Transfigured.
