When Link enters Morpheel's chamber, he only finds a single tentacle at the bottom. Once he sinks to the sand, seven other tentacles emerge from the bottom of the chamber, along with a large mouth. To defeat Morpheel's first form, Link must equip the Iron Boots and avoid the Bombfish it releases. He must grab its eye with the Clawshot and then attack it immediately. After two times, the creature's tentacles retract and its eye gets swallowed, ending up on its back. Afterwards, Morpheel's full body is revealed as it swims around the chamber. If Morpheel swims in front of Link, it will suck him in and damage him, spitting him out afterwards. Link must proceed to swim above it in order to use the Clawshot to latch onto its eye. After slashing it several times, Link is thrown off. He must continue to hook onto Morpheel until it is defeated, causing it to crash into the wall, draining all the water in the room.
