The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker Walkthrough 14.4 Final Battles


Home > Games > The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker 14.4 Final Battles




nside the final stretch of the tower, break the pots on the either side of the room for some arrows or some magic. You will find a series of steps before you, and each level will contain enemies. To exit the room you must defeat all the enemies in the room.



You can either do this with the sword, or you can one shot kill every enemy with the Light Arrows. It is up to you which option you'd like to use, but make sure you defeat all of them. Once you reach the top, break the pots for some more magic and health, and then enter the large door to find Ganon.



Link will enter the room and see Zelda lying on a bed with Ganon standing over here. Ganon will speak of Zelda's dreams and countless oceans as far as the eye can see. He will then profess that the Gods destroyed Hyrule when they flooded it.



Ganon will then proceed to transform into an enormous, puppet like creature known simply as Puppet Ganon. Puppet Ganon is Ganon's last defense for himself. This creature will appear in three different forms throughout the battle.



To defeat the first form you will need to pull out the Boomerang. Aim above the creature and you will target a couple of strings that are holding him up. You will have to hit the string a few times with the Boomerang before it breaks, rendering that part of the body useless.



You are only required to break the string holding up the tail of Puppet Ganon, but you are more than welcome to break a few more if you'd like to. Don't break all of them though, as this will cause Ganon to immediately restring the creature and bring you back to square one. Once the tail is on the floor, pull out a Light Arrow and aim at the blue orb on the end of it. Once you successfully hit this orb the puppet will be pulled up and restrung to fight again. After hitting it three times with the light arrows this phase of the battle will end.



The next stage of Puppet Ganon is the easiest of the three. This spider like form will spin around the top of the room and then drop down attempting to crush you. If you use the free camera mode and look at the water below you can see where the blue orb will drop and run to that area before he lands.



Once he does land, pull out the Bow and shoot another Light Arrow at the orb. Do this another two times to complete the phase.



Puppet Ganon's final formation is by far the most difficult. This form looks a lot like Moldorm from other Zelda games, and it also acts like it as well. This form will dart around the room quickly, often times charging right into you. There is no way to completely avoid this phase, and you will often get hit before you even notice him coming after you.



If you think you're quick you can hit its head with the sword to stun it for a few seconds and then shoot the orb, but this is very risky and often times doesn't work too well. The best approach is to stand off near one of the walls while it slithers around. Take out the light arrows and try to line up a shot at the orb as best as you can. It may take a few tries but you should eventually hit the orb.



After each hit the snake will increase its speed, so make sure you take this into account. Once you hit the orb three times Puppet Ganon will explode, ending the battle. With Puppet Ganon defated, Ganon says that you are surely the Hero of Time reborn. He tells you to come and face him, and he will float up to the top of the tower.



A long red rope will be left above the platform in the center of the room. Jump off the platform to reach it and slowly climb all the way to the higher platform. Once on top, look around and you will find an area that you can use the Grappling Hook on. Do so and climb up the rope to another higher platform.



In the middle area of this platform there are some pots you can break for more magic and hearts. There is also another grapple point higher up that you can use to reach the next area.



Climb onto the next area and burn off the top of the pot here with a fire arrow if you'd like. Work your way around the small walkways towards the large platform shooting out of the wall. Use your Hookshot to land on it and then head outside.



Ganon will begin to tell you the story of his homeland and how wind carried death whenever it came across his land. He tells you that the winds that blew across Hyrule carried something other than death and ruin, and that he coveted that wind.



He lunges at Link and violently attacks him, knocking the Master Sword away. He then picks up Link and summons the Triforce, making his wish to bring Hyrule back.



Suddenly the King of Hyrule appears and touches the Triforce before Ganon is able to reach it. The King wishes that Link and Zelda have hope and a future ahead of them. He wishes for Hyrule to be washed away and that their destinies will finally be fulfilled.



Ganon begins to laugh maniacally as water begins to pour down into Hyrule and says there is no future for them. Zelda will then wake up and gives Link the Master Sword to begin the battle with Ganon.



elda will tell you that she's going to help you by covering you with the Bow. To complete this phase, you will need to walk around the arena so that Ganon is between Link and Zelda. To make this easier you can use the Boomerang on Ganon to stun him and prevent him from attacking.



Zelda will then shoot Ganon with a Light Arrow, which is your cue to start attacking him with the sword. After a few hits Ganon will get angry and backhand Zelda, knocking her unconscious.



With Zelda gone it is now a one on one fight. Ganon will now continuously launch attacks you, for which you can only roll or jump out of the way.



The only way to attack him is to wait for him to jump at you, and right before he lands his attack use the Parry to attack him with the sword. Repeat this a few times and Zelda will wake up again.



Run over to her and she'll tell you she's going to aim for your shield, causing the Light Arrow to reflect off of it and into Ganon.



Face Ganon and pull out the shield, and Zelda will shoot a Light Arrow, which will then hit Ganon.



Use a Parry on Ganon, causing Link to jump high into the air.



Stab Ganon in the head with the Master Sword, effectively defeating him.



Ganon will say that the wind is blowing and turns to stone. The King will tell you that he regrets what happened in the past and wishes he could do things over again.



He lives bound to Hyrule, and in that sense was the same as Ganon.



He wants Link and Zelda to live for the future. Zelda asks the King to come with and says the sea will be the next Hyrule, but the King angrily answers that it will not be Hyrule, but it will be her land.



The Gods will then grant the King's wish and flood Hyrule. Link and Zelda float up to the surface, leaving the King behind.



The King will then mention that he has scattered the seeds of the future and done the best he could. Link and Zelda wake up floating in the ocean and Komali and the Pirates will find them.



Congratulations, you've just beaten The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker, now enjoy the ending credits.
