Hyrule Warriors Boss Tips

Throughout the Legend Mode, you’ll come across different bosses who will test your courage and determination to save the world. Some of these bosses will appear more than once, but the basic idea of defeating them will remain the same.

In addition to the main bosses, you’ll also come across warriors from your own squad, but defeating them isn’t hard. This guide basically covers all major bosses that you’ll encounter in the game.

Volga
The best way to take out Volga is by directly heading in for an assault.

You need to keep on pushing him until you’re thrown off a Force Blast. Immediately after this attack, he will most probably come down for a dropdown attack. As soon as you see him going into the air, dodge to either side to avoid taking damage.

After recovering, you need to start hitting him again; especially near his weak mark. The good thing about this battle is that you need to make his HP drop to about fifty per cent. Keep on repeating the same process mentioned above and Volga will run away from the battle.

King Dodongo
As soon as you see this boss, waste no time and starting attacking him before he destroys the Keep. First off, you need to reveal his weak mark which is pretty simple to do.

As soon as the boss opens up his mouth, toss a bomb inside to reveal the weak mark. Immediately after tossing the bomb, go ahead for some sword action.

You will also see the boss standing on the two legs. When you see this happening, back away and be ready to dodge either the rolling attack or the shockwave. Dodge these attacks by rolling or jumping in any direction.

In addition to this, he will also send in a shockwave your way by producing a roaring sound. You will know about this shockwave by paying close attention on the head of this boss. Whenever you see this boss turning away his head, move away quickly as a shockwave will be headed your way.

Some of the other attacks at this boss’s disposal are quite easy to dodge. All you need to do is to avoid the sound shockwave as it deals the maximum amount of damage. Keep on repeating the process and you will come out victorious in no time.

Twisted Wizard Wizzro
As soon as this fight starts, you’ll note that this boss fires spectral fire almost everywhere. Due to this fact, one of the best ways to defeat this boss is by standing in front of him and having your guard up. The reason as to why you need to do is to make Wizzro reveal his weak mark.

You need to keep on blocking his attacks and as soon as he reveals his weak mark, roll forward and start aiming at the weak mark. Again, stand in the front and have your guard up followed by rolling forward and cutting him down.

You need to keep on repeating this process until the boss flees from the battle.

Gohma
The primary attack at this boss’s disposal is its laser beam with which it sweeps the whole area in front of it. These laser beams are quite easy to dodge if know which kind of laser it’s going to be and how to dodge it effectively.

It the boss looks to its left, the laser will sweep the area in a horizontal manner and if its look down, the laser will sweep the area in vertical manner.

In addition to this, if you see some kind of an energy-ball in its eyes, it will fire that energy-ball directly on you. Coming to attacking him, after each of the attacks mentioned above, you’ll see the boss’s eye transform into blue colour.

As soon as the eye turns blue, shoot an arrow in the eye and its weak mark will be revealed. This is the exact moment when you need to lay your strike and deal some decent amount of damage.

In addition to the lasers, Gohma will also raise its limbs to sweep the area in front of it, in the shape of a tornado attack. Lastly, the Gohma will leap into the air and will come down with a devastating attack.

Keep your eye peeled for the large highlighted area on the ground when he leaps into the air and dodge the attack. Keep on repeating the process provided above to win this boss fight.

Manhandla
First off, all of the heads of this boss will aim directly at you in a locked pattern. As soon as you see the heads aiming at you, bring you guard up. Keep on blocking these attacks and as soon as you see the boss’s Stalks turn green, go ahead and start attacking.

I wouldn’t recommend attacking the boss with your regular attacks. Instead, try your newly acquired Boomerang. You need to aim at all of her heads which will reveal her weak mark.

Another boss attack that you need to keep in mind is when all of her heads align in a single horizontal line and try to cut you down. Blocking is ineffective against this attack and you need to throw a Boomerang to attack all her heads at once and reveal her weak mark.

She will also start thrashing the ground which cannot be blocked and you must dodge away to avoid taking damage from this attack. Other attacks like poison attack (when she looks into the air) and Manhandla Stalks are quite easy to avoid.

Once you drop down enough of her health, she will go into the ground and will resurface at a later time. For the second part of the fight, you need to keep the strategy mentioned above to complete this boss fight and this scenario.

Argorok
This boss fight is pretty easy and straightforward! Do note that you need your Hookshot to reveal the weak mark of this boss. One of the best things about this boss fight is that the attacks of this boss have very limited range which doesn’t pose much a threat at long ranges.

This boss emits fire from both its mouth and tail and turns into blue colour after the attacks to indicate that it’s vulnerable to attack. You need to stick to the areas on its sides and use the Hookshot to bring it down.
