How to Beat Guay


Guay - strategy

How to Beat Guay
Since the Guay can fly, it is easy to defeat it with a projectile by using a bow and arrow. It's hard to hit with a sword, so slash it when you get closer.

Guays are flying enemies primarily found in Faron Woods and the Sky. They are similar with Keese, in which they try to swoop Link.

They have a special attack called Hung Attack which drops foul matter to the player that decreases Stamina.
