North Dragon's Exile
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. Molduga can be fought while Shield Surfing with the help of a Sand Seal. They are very sensitive to loud noises, so it can also be fought by detonating Remote Bombs or shooting Bomb Arrows near it. This will cause Molduga to fly out of the sand, stunned, and vulnerable to Link's attacks. If Link is especially quick, he can stun Molduga as soon as the monster recovers.
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.

- "You...you haven't killed any Moldugas yet? Here, let me give you a hint. I've noticed that they're very sensitive to sound. If you scare them from a distance with a big noise, maybe you can stun them long enough to take them out." — Kilton (Breath of the Wild)
