How to Beat Thunderblight Ganon

The Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild (BotW) Thunderblight Ganon.jpg
Like all Ganon fights, this battle has two phases. Thunderblight Ganon's attack pattern will change after you get his HP down to 50%.

He will attack you often and block arrows and attacks with his shield, so do your best to parry and do perfect dodges, so you have the opportunity to attack back. He can be momentarily stunned by destroying, and in the second phase you need to drag the metal pillars to him with Magnesis to knock him down.

Divine Beast Vah Naboris Tips and Tricks

Get Defense from Electric Attacks

There is going to be a lot of electric-based attacks from Thunderblight Ganon, so be sure you are well-prepared.

Stock Up on Food and Elixirs

Cook up some electric-resistance food using ingredients like Zapshrooms and Electric Safflinas, or make some Electro Elixirs.

If you have a small number of hearts, pack up some Hearty Dishes for extra hearts, or get a special spa plan in Hotel Oasis at Gerudo Town to get extra temporary hearts and stamina.

The Best Recipes You Need to Cook

Wear Shock Resistance Armor

BotW Rubber Set
The only way to get immunity against electricity and shock is to wear the Rubber Armor Set. Each piece is obtained in a certain way, and wearing all pieces gives you the Unshockable set bonus effect. It may be worth getting it for the battle against Thunderblight Ganon, and all electric-based obstacles.

How to Get the Rubber Set

You are Free to Leave the Area Anytime

During your stay in Vah Naboris, you can leave and come back anytime, as you can fast-travel to it. Take note that every time you leave, you will always arrive at the Travel Gate. Press the - button to open up the map, and press X to leave the area.

If you find yourself in a tough situation against Thunderblight Ganon, you can retreat and prepare for your return.

Get Everything Before You Leave for Good

After defeating Thunderblight Ganon, and using the main terminal to leave, you cannot come back inside the Divine Beast anymore, so if you want to get all the chests, do so before leaving for good.
