How to Beat Calamity Ganon

The Future of Hyrule

Invulnerable at the Start

When the battle starts, do not engage him right away and just run around while dodging his attacks. Calamity Ganon is invincible during the first part so save your energy (especially special attacks) for now.

After a few dialogues and a cutscene, Calamity Ganon will be vulnerable and the real battle starts.

Wait for Rune Prompts

Calamity Ganon hits fast and hits hard. You can play safe by running around while you wait for him to attack and expose his weak-point gauge. When this happens, hit him as much as you can before he resumes attacking.

To make things easier, interrupt his strongest attacks by following the rune prompts. This will deal significant amount of damage to his gauge and stagger him for a while.

Same Strategy for Second Phase

During the second phase, Calamity Ganon will pretty much use the same attack pattern. You can also use the same strategy from earlier (dodge and attack) while also following the rune prompts.

Sealing Calamity Ganon

After bringing him down to critical health level, he will grow wings and launch an attack that is difficult to avoid. If you're confident with your dodging skills, you can perfect dodge this attack or if not, use the Remote Bomb rune for its iframe.

When Calamity Ganon's health is fully depleted, go all out on his last weak-point gauge and you will eventually be prompted to seal Calamity Ganon.
