Waterblight Ganon is a Boss in Breath of the Wild. It is one of the four phantoms of Calamity Ganon that took control of the Divine Beasts.[1] It is found either inside the Divine Beast Vah Ruta or in the center of Hyrule Castle if it is not already defeated. Waterblight Ganon is responsible for the demise of Mipha.[2]

Like the other incarnations of Malice, Waterblight Ganon's weak point is its eye and horns. Landing repeated strikes to either spot with Arrows will knock Waterblight Ganon to the ground, providing Link with the opportunity to attack while it is stunned. An Arrow to Waterblight Ganon's eye will also cancel out any attacks that it attempts. Using an Ancient Arrow or Shock Arrow in particular will deal heavier damage to Waterblight Ganon. If Link has obtained the Master Sword at this point in the game, its attack power will rise to 60 while within Divine Beast Vah Ruta.

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. In addition, parrying Waterblight Ganon's spear when it is thrown will stun it.

When Waterblight Ganon reaches half of its 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 summon ice blocks, which proceed to move towards Link, dealing damage to Link if hit. 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.
