For the first part of the battle, you’ll initially be fighting the boss’s two pincers. The pincers’ weak points are the eyeballs within. You’ll have to hit the eye at a certain angle when the pincer is open – the angle is pretty easy to guess at, and the game is rather generous with this. If you notice a red eyeball at any point, back off or you’ll be hit with a tail sweep attack. Continue hitting the claws until both are destroyed. Additionally note that the boss may, with one pincer left, use its tail to hit you from above.
After destroying both pincers, the real fight begins. You’ll notice a third eyeball open up where, I guess, the boss’s head is. You can only hit this one with a thrust. After a few hits, the boss will dig into the sand.
Now, you’ll be able to note where the boss’s body is. Try to stay away from there, or you’ll be hit with its tail. Use the Gust Bellows to blow away the sand near the boss to eventually bring it aboveground again. Continue to thrust at its eye and later dig it up until it is defeated.
Long ago, on a dark day, the earth cracked and evil forces rushed out of the fissure. These forces mercilessly attacked the people of the earth, slaughtering them and destroying their land. They did this in search of the ultimate power, a power capable of granting any wishes of its holder. This power, passed down from the gods of old, was guarded by Her Grace, the goddess of the land. The goddess gathered the surviving humans on a piece of earth and sent it skyward, beyond the clouds. With the humans safe, the goddess joined the land dwellers and fought the evil forces in a war of unmatched scale and ferocity. They eventually sealed the evil forces away, restoring peace to the surface. However, the humans remained in Skyloft, as Hylia knew that the seal on the evil would not hold forever.
You are Link, a resident of Skyloft, who, after a strange dream, sets out on a journey to save his beloved home.
