How to Beat Moldorm
Attack the weak point on its tail 3 times. If they see you, they will charge at you until you are out of their line of sight. This can be used to trick it into charging directly into a wall to stun them.

Moldorms are first seen in Fire Sanctuary after getting the Mogma Mitts, and digging specific locations where it spawns. It is a large and long armored worm that goes around the underground.

Hit the Moldorm's tail

Like most Moldorms in The Legend of Zelda series, the Moldorm's weakpoint is its tail, indicated by a glowing orange ball. You must hit it three times to defeat it.

Chase after it halts

After moving around after some time, Moldorms will halt, giving you the chance to chase after it and hit its tail.

Chase after the tail strategically

When chasing the tail, you should not chase it directly from behind. Instead, strategically predict where the Moldorm will turn, and chase after the tail by intersecting it from a cross direction.

Bait to wall to stun

When the Moldorm's eyes turn from green to red, it means that it has noticed you in its line of sight. It will then charge at you at fast speeds, which you should avoid by sprinting to a different direction.

You can use this knowledge to bait it to a wall to stun it. This gives you ample time to go to its tail.
