This ability is essential for many puzzles in the game, but one of its best uses is in fighting Stalblind. This massive boss uses a shield to block Link’s attacks, but Link can flip flat on Stalblind’s shield, confusing the enemy and forcing him to put the shield on his back. It’s the only opening Link needs in this simple yet brilliant boss fight.
5. Ganon Puppet – The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker
While many Wind waker fans think the final battle with Ganondorf is the best in the game (and one of the best in the series), ultimately it’s a pretty straightforward fight, even though the setting is pretty dramatic. Puppet Ganon is just a much more strategic meeting, and I would say the setting is even better.
First of all, he’s a really cool incarnation of Ganon that’s unlike anything else in the franchise. It probably wouldn’t even work in another game, but here, Wind wakerThe cartoon style of gives the puppeteer a particularly scary vibe. It’s really rather haunting to see the limbs of this entity hanging limply as it moves around the room before transforming into its even scarier spider and worm forms. It’s also ingenious how each of the shapes forces you to use the skills learned throughout the game to put this puppet away forever.
4. Stallord – The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess
The fight against Stallord doesn’t even look like a traditional one Zelda boss fight, but it actually works to its advantage.
Stallord is certainly one of the coolest bosses in the series (he’s a giant demonic fossil protruding from the sand), but the creature falls short of Link’s trusty Spinner: a top that sort of acts. like a skateboard. Even Nintendo couldn’t resist taking it Tony hawk. The Spinner is primarily used for riding on rails, but in the first phase of the Battle of Stallord, Link uses it to dodge enemies and crash into the resurrected fossil. The second phase is even better, with Link riding the spinning top on a pillar to take down the floating skull and spitting out a fireball from Stallord.
3. Koloktos – The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword
Although it was well reviewed at launch, many players took a turn for the worse Skyward sword over the past decade for one simple reason: its motion controls were unreliable. Yet there is a solid Zelda game under frustration, and when the controls work, they really improve the game. In that sense, Koloktos is the best example of Skyward sword to his favorite.
