Hyrule Compendium Entry
Molduga is a giant sand monster that can be found in four locations in Gerudo Desert. It resembles a four-legged fish and lurks below the sand, patrolling its territory in search of prey. Once it becomes aware of Link's presence, it will barrel towards Link and attempt to ram into him. When defeated, it drops one or two Treasure Chests containing various weapons, Molduga Fins and Molduga Guts. Link must collect Molduga Guts in order to complete the "Medicinal Molduga" Side Quest. After completing the "Defeat Ganon" Main Quest, Kilton will give Link a Medal of Honor for defeating all four Moldugas.
Molduga can be fought while Shield Surfing with the help of a Sand Seal. It can also be fought by detonating Bombs or shooting Bomb Arrows near it. This will cause Molduga to fly out of the sand, stunned and vulnerable to Link's attacks. Caution should be taken when fighting Molduga as Link can be easily killed if not properly prepared. If Link is especially quick, he can stun Molduga as soon as the monster recovers and easily keep the beast under his control.
