and lay on his back. Then, pick him up and throw him against the
wall. A group of little enemies will go everywhere. Kill as many
as you can until they become the big Boss again. Repeat this until

After ten to twelve sword hits, the Boss will be defeated.
Hint: Defeating Ganondorf:
When Princess Zelda shoots Ganondorf with a Light Arrow,
walk up and hit him with a few sword combos. Once Ganondorf receives
enough damage, line yourself up with Princess Zelda, so that when
she fires a Light Arrow towards you, Link can deflect it off the
Mirror Shield and hit Ganondorf. Once Ganondorf is stunned, move
in and hit him with your sword. Repeat this until he is defeated.
When you finally find Zelda towards the end of the game, you will
have to fight Ganondorf. Use your boomerang to cut the strings
that hold up Ganondorf, then use a Light Arrow to hit the blue
ball at the end of his tail. After three shots, he will turn into
a spider. When he climbs the top of the room, adjust your camera
to see his reflection in the water. Position yourself next to
the blue ball, then wait for him to fall down. When he does, shoot
his tail with your Light Arrow. He will then turn into a snake.
You can hit his head with your sword. This will cause him to freeze
for a moment. While he is frozen, you can shoot the blue ball
with your Light Arrow. He moves very fast ; do not hesitate to
shoot him with your arrows.
Zelda will shoot Ganondorf with your Light Arrows. Start by avoiding
Ganondorf 's attacks until he gets hit by the Light Arrow. He
will be stunned -- quickly hit him with your Master Sword. Repeat
this until he comes up to Zelda and hits her. Start hitting Ganondorf
with Parry Attacks until Zelda wakes up. She will try to hit Ganondorf
with the Light Arrows, but he dodges them. Avoid Ganondorf's attacks
until Zelda says something. Now, she will use the Light Arrows
to hit your Mirror Shield. When you see her aiming the Light Arrow
at you, hold up your Mirror Shield. Once it hits your shield,
it will hit Ganondorf. When he is stunned, approach him and wait
for him to try to hit you. When he does, do a Parry Attack to
When you deflect the Light Arrows and hit Ganondorf, have your
sword out and L-target him. A change and you will hear
a sound. When you hear the sound, uppercut Ganondorf and stab
him when falling down in the head. Note: This may require a few
Hint: Defeating the Forsaken Fortress Boss:
When it is chasing you on top of the building, it will
try to hit you with its beak. The beak will get stuck on the ground.
Hit it with your Skull Hammer. Repeat this until the helmet on
the beak breaks. Then repeat, but instead of using the Skull Hammer
use your sword.
Hint: Defeating Gannon's Tower Boss:
It will have strings on it. Hit each string with your
Boomerang about two times and it will fall . Then, hit its blue
ball on its tail with your Light Arrow. It will go back up. Repeat
this two more times. Then, it will transform. When it jumps up,
quickly look at it with the reflection in the water. Locate its
blue ball on its tail and go near the side it is on. It will fall
down. Shoot the blue ball with the Light Arrow. Repeat this two
more times, and it will transform. L-target it, and shoot it with
any arrow . Then, very quickly shoot the Light Arrow at the blue
ball on its tail. Repeat this two more times until it is defeated.

Auto lock onto the Boss' hands using your bow and fire.
Then, shoot arrows at the two red eyes. When its head drops to
the ground, throw a bomb into its mouth. Repeat this three times
and it will fall.
Hint: Defeating Orca:
When you return to Outset Island to find the last pearl,
go to Orca's house. He will challenge you to fight. You must hit
him one hundred times without getting hit three times. The best
way is to lure him to the center, do two sword combos, then parry.
Afterwards you must hit him three hundred times.
Use your shield. Remember, if Orca blocks your attack, he is about
to attack. This strategy takes a bit longer, but you can get to
1000 hits without being hit once.
Go to Outset Island and fight Orca. Start the fight so that you
can see the door where you entered. Once the fight begins, use
caution as this can be difficult. Always keep your guard up. Keep
hitting Orca towards the door and to your right. There is a small
gap between a wall at the foot of his bed. Use you camera positioning
and patience. If you can position him there, between the foot
of the bed and the wall, he will not be able to block your jumping
attack. Keep using your jumping attack (L targeting + A)
until you hit him 999 times. You will get a 200 rupees every time
you hit him 999 times.
Hint: Defeating Phantom Gannon:
After your second encounter at Forsaken Fortress, you
will have to battle Phantom Gannon. When he hurls an energy ball
at you, hit it back with your sword. After defeating him, you
will get a Skull Hammer.
Hint: Defeating Puppet Gannon:
When you enter the room where Puppet Gannon is supposed
to be, you will see a bed with Zelda in it. You and her are not
the only ones in the room. Gannon is also in the room with you.
As soon as he is done talking, you will begin fighting Puppet
Gannon. You will need the Boomerang and the Light Arrows. Cut
all of the strings before you try to shoot Light Arrows. He will
then start spinning around. When his tail is facing you, shoot
and repeat until he goes back up and reties his strings. Repeat
the process until he starts to transform into his next, spider,
form. Watch the reflection of the water. When it comes down on
you, move towards the back of it, where the little "bulb"
is located. Shoot it when it comes down. Repeat the process until
he transforms for the last time, into a snake. Fire Light Arrows
until he is defeated.
Hint: Defeating the Wind Temple Boss:
Wait for its head to stick out of the ground, then
pull its tongue with the Hookshot .Hit it as much as possible.
It will then go around the room . Run around the room until a
hole reappears . Then, repeat this until it is defeated.
Hint: Defeating Zeetlock:
After escaping the flood, use the Magic Hammer and
hit Zeetlock to make him fall into the water. When it tries to
perform a beak smash on you, dodge it and its beak will get stuck,
making it weak. Smack it with the hammer until its helmet cracks
off. Now strike Zeetlock's head with your sword to defeat it.
Hint: Defeating enemies easily:
Go up to an enemy and shoot a Light Arrow at it. Use
this trick to get away from the enemy quickly.
