Thunderblight Ganon Boss Guide | Zelda: Breath of the Wild (BotW)

The Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild (BotW) Thunderblight Ganon

This is a guide to the Thunderblight Ganon boss fight in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild (BotW).

How to Beat Thunderblight Ganon

Like all Ganon fights, this battle has two phases. Thunderblight Ganon's attack pattern will change after you get his HP down to 50%, so watch his moves carefully. In the second phase, Thunderblight Ganon will summon electricity to his axe, making his melee attacks electric. Like Guardians, try to aim for his eye.

Thunderblight Ganon moves quickly, and unlike other Ganon fights, he will keep rushing to you for an attack. Do your best to parry and do perfect dodges, so you have the opportunity to attack back.

Dodge and Parry

With his shield up, you will not be able to shoot him with your bow. The best way to attack is to let him attack you, and by successfully dodging or parrying, you will have an opportunity to strike back.

Destroy His Shield

Use a strong weapon and keep attacking him until you break his shield. This will knock him out, giving you more time to deal damage.

Electrocuted Metal Pillars
Thunderblight Ganon drops metal pillars in your area, and casts electricity on them. Staying close to one will electrocute you, so move away.

To counter it, use Magnesis and drag a pillar to Ganon to electrocute him.

Stay Close at the Start of the Phase

During the start of the second phase, equip your Magnesis as soon as possible, and keep close distance to Thunderblight Ganon. When he drops the pillars, it will be easy to drag one to him if you are near.
