In the first phase of the battle, Waterblight Ganon will attack Link using its spear. It will attempt to either stab Link, throw the spear at him, or swing the spear in a large circle. Link can use Cryonis to place blocks of ice between himself and Waterblight Ganon. When Waterblight Ganon attacks, it will break its spear on the Cryonis blocks, giving Link time to attack. Alternatively, Link can execute a Perfect Dodge and subsequent Flurry Rush when Waterblight Ganon either stabs or swings its spear. When Waterblight Ganon reaches half of its original health, the water level will rise and four platforms will appear. During this phase, Waterblight Ganon will teleport around the area, stopping above one of the platforms. It will then create summon ice blocks, which proceed to move towards Link, dealing damage on impact. Link can use Cryonis to destroy these blocks before they hit him. Waterblight Ganon will immediately follow this attack with its spear, usually by throwing it. To inflict damage onto Waterblight Ganon, Link must stand on a different platform and shoot Arrows at it. An Arrow to Waterblight Ganon's eye will cancel out any attacks that it attempts.
