7 Best Bosses in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

The Legend of Zelda™: Breath of the Wild for Nintendo Switch - Nintendo  Official Site

This Friday, I’m going to rate all of the bosses, and mini bosses in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.

  1. Monk Maz Koshia. This is a boss only unlocked by: Purchasing the second expansion pass, The Champions ballad. Next: Completing all the four divine beasts, by defeating the mech under control, and releasing the champion’s spirits. (The divine beasts are Vah Ruta, Vah Rudania, Vah Medoh, and Vah Naboris.) Finally, clear all the bonus shrines that you get from the same expansion pack, and head to the place where you first started the game. I enjoyed playing this boss because he uncovers a lot of the story, there’s a lot of phases, and he presents a good challenge, too.
  2. Calamity Ganon. He could be the first boss you play, or the last. He uncovers a lot of the story, but I didn’t find him presenting much of a challenge for me. I still enjoyed fighting him, but not as much as Maz Koshia. He is located in the sanctuary, in the center of the castle ruins.
  3. Divine Beast Vah Naboris. This is the dessert divine beast, and it presented a challenge, too. First, you’ll have to spend days climbing the mountainous area. (Unless you find the path through the cliffs, which I did not.) Next, you have to trudge through dessert in the sweltering heat and barely survive, or at night with the chance of stals. (Skeleton versions of lizals, bobolkins, or moblins, who present a way higher challenge.) Then, there’s the challenge of finding your way into Gerudo Town, which only accepts “Vai”. (Women). After a long while, you’ll finally face the final boss inside the divine beast, a lightning fast, surprisingly strong, small guy.
  4. Divine Beast Vah Rudania. Rudania is the fireproof lizard-related, divine beast. You’ll mostly see it on it’s perch on top of the hottest thing in Hyrule, the volcano death mountain. You’ll rely on elixirs in the burning heat of the volcano. The beast has been giving trouble to the nearby people, the Gorons. With catapults, red-hot rocks, lots of rock homes and structures, and most of all, lava. I found the inside, outside, and top of this divine beast to be exciting.
  5. Lynels. Lynels are basically rough, no mercy centuars. I’ve found them to be the roughest of bobolkins, lizals, and moblins. Lynels are very scattered across Hyrule, and are powerful, too. They’ll carry a Lynel Crusher, a hammer-type weapon with high damage. If you’ve got their attention, they can get you without having a clear shot by shooting an arrow in the air, and it hits you. I like to use statis, among other things to kill them.
  6. Divine Beast Vah Medoh. If you’re a bad archer, this is not your favorite boss. It’s super time-consuming to even get to the area that Medoh is in, due to the freezing climates nearby. I’ve spent about 4,000+ rupees on bomb arrows, and about 1/2 of that is from Medoh’s flying battle. This divine beast focuses on arrow usage, tilting, and using your paraglider.
  7. Master Kogha. Although he is the leader of the Yiga clan, I think that he might be lazy, and possibly demanding. Although his scouts are loyal, he seems to goof of quite a bit also. He has some funny dialouge, and the fight with him shows that he may have power, but he is quite clumsy with it. Before fighting him, you’ll have to go through the Yiga Clan Hideout. I found this to be VERY hard. I’d say it is among the hardest locations to complete in the game.
