To begin, you’ll have to look up. As you saw earlier, the flower bulb is attached to the ceiling by about twenty or so vines. Using the Boomerang, cut down the vines. The bulb will rarely attack at this period.

If it does, just observe what attack it is. If a tentacle is swinging hostilely, move to another area of the room. If the tentacles dig into the ground, watch for a cloud of dust (?) and avoid it - the tentacles will sprout from the ground and damage you. When have cut all of the 20-ish vines, the bulb falls to the ground, beginning the second phase of the battle.

Inside the flower, you’ll find the Boko Baba-thing. MAKE SURE TO L-TARGET IT! This bulb will remain open for only a short time - you need to make every attack count

I highly recommend staying in the flower the whole time, despite the fact that you will indeed take 1/4 heart damage as the bulb, when it closes and reattaches to the ceiling, will spit out Link. However, it means a few more hits, and you can restore health by the rocks and skulls in the room. Repeat this process until the battle is over.

At the end of the battle, the Boko Baba thing becomes severed. It thrashes through the air and on the ground until it blows up, leaving Makar and a complete Heart Container behind.

As for the flower, it turns a grey color as a whirlwind appears in the center of it. Makar thanks you for rescuing him, then remembers that the annual Korok ceremony is today and that he must leave at once. Grab the Heart Container and enter the whirlwind.

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?
