Boss fights are an important part of The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening. The game has it’s a fair share of bosses and interesting ones at that.
How to Beat Moldorm
Moldorm will be the first boss you will face in the game. Moldorm is a worm type boss that moves around the whole stage trying to attack you. The boss will appear in the latter part of the Tail Cave dungeon. The boss’s whole body is invulnerable except for its red glowing tail. At times the worm will move around different corners of the map and it will expose its tail.
You can attack the tail with your sword. Once you attack its tail it will lose it’s cool and go into rage mode. Its speed will increase and attacking it will become more difficult. Just try to avoid its attacks and it will soon go back to its original form. Keep attacking its tail and dodging in its rage mode. You can also use Roc’s Feather to leap over it. At some point, it will enter rage mode for a longer period.
Attacking its tail in this form is hard because it is very nimble but it can still be attacked. Keep in mind not to go into the far corners as you will fall down into the pit below. Inside the pit go right then up to come back to the boss door and restart the battle. Once the boss gets attacked many times in the tail it will be defeated. You will get the Heart Container, which increases health, for defeating the boss. Head to the room to the north to get the Full Moon Cello.
