|List of Enemies||Strategy|
|Beamos||Slash through each of the line with a horizontal sword attack. When only the head remains, stab it with a forward thrust. You can also Shield Bash to deflect the laser back to stun them.|
|Blue Bokoblin||Blue Bokoblins use the same attack pattern as Red Bokoblins, but are tougher. Invite an attack and repel it with a Shield Bash, then strike.|
|Chuchu||A simple sword slash defeats it. When it merges, proceed to continue slashing until every Chuchu is defeated.|
|Cursed Bokoblin||Knock Cursed Bokoblins down then use Fatal Blow. They will also run away if they see the Hylian Shield.|
|Dark Lizalfos||Uses the same attack pattern and weakness as normal Lizalfos, but far more dangerous. You can use the Bow from afar, but you can only damage it when it is unalerted from your presence.|
|Electro Spume||Throw a bomb or attack with a Skyward Strike.|
|Fire Keese||Defeat it like normal Keese. Do not use Wooden Shields when fighting it.|
|Furnix||Hit the ring on the tail with a whip and pull it. This will knock it down to the ground, allowing you to use Fatal Blow.|
|LD-003D Dreadfuse||Weak to thrusts until it falls over the end. Occasionally, it will arm its weapon to electrocute you, so be careful as you will get damaged if you fail to dodge or repel this attack.|
|Lizalfos||Repel the attack with a shield attack and aim and attack when you get the chance.|
|Metal Shield Moblin||Metal Shields are impervious to sword attacks unlike its wooden variant. Climb up the shield by dashing, then slash it down from behind.|
|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.|
|Pyrup||The quickest way to defeat it is to throw a bomb, especially when it is breathing fire. Another option is to shoot it with a bow from a distance, or stun with a slingshot and then slash.|
|Quadro Baba||You can slash it across its mouth the moment it opens, or hit it when it is stunned by a shield attack. You may need multiple hits before downing it. Use the Beetle to instantly defeat it.|
|Red Bokoblin (Archer)||Bokoblin Archers attack from a long distance, so it is effective to use the bow and arrow as well. If they attack with fire arrows, try not to guard wth a wooden shield.|
|Sentrobe||Repel its missile attack twice with a Shield Bash or a sword strike. Slice the flying bombs according to its orientation.|
|Skulltula||While it is hanging from the ceiling, cut down the thread to make it fall. Use vertical spin attack to make it fall on its back, then use Fatal Blow. You can also turn it around while it is hanging then strike the purple orb behind it.|
|Stalfos||Attack the side it is not protecting, or repel its attack with a Shield Bash to open a gap to its defenses. You can also use Bombs to stun it.|
|Stalmaster||Attack the side it is not protecting, or repel its attack with a Shield Bash to open a gap to its defenses. Stalmasters can protect all sides except its center, so use a thrust attack when it does this.|
|Technoblin||Use Skyward Strike to down it and use Fatal Blow. Attack it strategically to avoid being electrocuted from its weapon. If it doesn't work, you can easily defeat it by stunning it with a slingshot. Avoid using Iron Shields.|
