How to Beat Pyrup


Pyrup strategy

How to Beat Pyrup
The quickest way to attack is to throw a bomb. Another option is to shoot it with a bow from a distance, or stun with a slingshot and then slash.

Pyrups are vulnerable enemies in Eldin Volcano that shy away from you when it is outside of its shell, or hides in a hole in the wall. They primarily use Spit Fire to either block you from proceeding, or attack you to protect itself.

As Bombs are volatile against fire and lava, use these and your environment to your advantage when fighting Pyrup!

When Pyrups are hiding in a hole, roll a bomb to its direction and Pyrup's Spit Fire should denotate it.

When Pyrups are protected in a shell, aim a bomb to the hole on the top side of its shell. As you do this, be careful as Pyrups will spew Spit Fire to you, and it can accidentally detonate your bomb and hit you.
