Part 1: Opening the Shell

Begin by equipping the Grappling Hook if it hasn’t been equipped already. Use it and focus towards the roof, where Valoo’s tail is hanging from. As you move over the tail, a yellow sparkle appears!

This means nothing other than that you are meant to hook onto the tail. Once you do, you see Valoo go “What the…?” and Link begins to swing. You need only swing across. After you let go, a large piece of the roof falls on Gohma’s head and its shell begins to crack.

Immediately aim at the roof again. Gohma will replace the rock and Valoo’s tail will slither through. Swing again two more times to fully crack the shell and fight Gohma in his “true” form.

Part 2: Ending the Battle

This part is simpler. Lock-on to Gohma (well, his eye) and use the Grappling Hook. Gohma will be forced over and also be stunned. Wail on it with your sword. Repeat as needed until defeated.

After defeating it, Gohma begins to harden to black rock, then explodes. Link begins to happily dance as a complete Heart Container falls and the lava solidifies. A whirlwind also appears in the center of the room. Grab the Heart Container to boost and restore your health and reappear outside of the dungeon, where the King of Red Lions is.

Set hundreds of years after the events of Ocarina of Time, The Wind Waker finds the hero Link in a sea scattered with 49 islands, which necessitates frequent sailing and naval combat. Link lives with his grandmother and younger sister Aryll on Outset Island, one of the few inhabited islands in the Great Sea. The people of the Great Sea pass down a legend of a prosperous kingdom with a hidden golden power. An evil man found and stole this power, using it to spread darkness until a young boy dressed in green sealed the evil with the Blade of Evil's Bane. The boy became known as the Hero of Time and passed into legend. One day the sealed evil began to return, but the Hero of Time did not reappear. The inhabitants of the Great Sea are unsure of the kingdom's fate, but it is clear that this legend is the story of Ocarina of Time where the Hero of Time, Link, fought Ganondorf. Can you emerge as the new Hero of Time?
