Hyrule Compendium Entry
The Molduking is a boss exclusive to The Champions' Ballad DLC Pack, first appearing as part of the Divine Beast Tamer's Trial in the "EX Champion Urbosa's Song" Main Quest. The Molduking is a giant Molduga that gained power by resting underground for centuries, absorbing iron into its skin to bolster its defensive capabilities far beyond its Molduga counterparts. Consequently, the Molduking is seen with a Gerudo Spear, Golden Claymore, Rusty Broadsword, Rusty Halberd, and a Throwing Spear sticking out of its hide, indicating failed attempts to slay it. In the "EX Champion Urbosa's Song" Main Quest, Link must slay the Molduking in order to make the Keive Tala Shrine appear. After the Molduking has been defeated, it will reappear in the East Barrens after every Blood Moon.
Like its Molduga counterparts, the Molduking swims beneath the desert sand in search of prey. When it detects prey moving upon the sand, the Molduking will rush towards the disturbance and leap into the air, attempting to consume anything nearby in its mouth. Link can trick the Molduking into exposing itself by throwing Remote Bombs or shooting Bomb Arrows at the sand near it. If it is struck by either explosive force while in the air, the Molduking will fall to the desert floor and temporarily lie stunned.

- "This massive monster swims beneath the desert's sand. It is a subspecies of Molduga that stored up a great deal of energy by sleeping underground for hundreds of years. Its power is superior to Molduga, as its skin is rich with iron and acts as a protective shield." — Hyrule Compendium (Breath of the Wild)
- "The scattered One-Hit Obliterator led you to a location where a stone monument with a map of trials appeared. Kass's song seems related...
One, fight the brute of the sand,
Two, chase rings upon the land,
Three, throw the orb underground,
Champion, trials abound!
You still have three trials to complete." — INVALID OR MISSING TERM (Breath of the Wild)
