First Form: Puppet
Puppet Ganon's puppet form is marionette-like, and reminiscent of Ganon's boar-like beast form from A Link to the Past and Four Swords Adventures. Puppet Ganon's movement is restricted; his appendages hang from the ceiling by cords. Puppet Ganon damages Link by spinning his tail and flailing his arms. He releases Keese during the battle as a distraction. Link cuts the cords with the Boomerang, similar to the battle with Kalle Demos in the Forest Haven. After Link cuts all blue cords attached to Puppet Ganon, he hangs, suspended, on the central red cord, dragging the ground. Link shoots a Light Arrow at the blue ball at the end of Puppet Ganon's tail to damage him. After three hits, Puppet Ganon changes form.
Second Form: Spider
Puppet Ganon transforms into a large spider; he flies up to the top of the room periodically, spinning rapidly before crashing back down above Link's last position. Similar to the battle with Blizzeta in Twilight Princess, Link uses the reflecting pool in the room to see where Puppet Ganon's spider form will fall. Link shoots a Light Arrow at the blue ball on Puppet Ganon's body to damage him. After three hits, Ganon changes form.
Third Form: Moldorm
The final form of Puppet Ganon is reminiscent of the many iterations of Moldorm throughout the series. Puppet Ganon moves erratically around the room, gaining speed each time Link strikes the blue ball at the end of his tail with a Light Arrow. Puppet Ganon is stunned whenever Link attacks his face with the Master Sword, Bombs, or the Skull Hammer, and distracted at the sight of All-Purpose Bait. When the bait is thrown, Puppet Ganon quickly moves towards it, damaging Link if he is in the way. Link may best Puppet Ganon if he uses the Hookshot to reach high platforms in the room. In this way, Link may snipe Puppet Ganon without fear of damage.
After defeating the final form of Puppet Ganon, Link climbs the room's central cord to the tower's rooftop; it is here where he faces his final fight with Ganondorf.

Effective Weapons: Light Arrows
This is a gigantic marionette created by Ganon himself. It transforms into three different shapes, but all are vulnerable to rays of light.
Rather than shooting randomly at it, try to deduce when it can be easily targeted and then take advantage of your chance.
