Learn the tips and tricks to defeat Calamity Ganon with our Boss Guide to rid Hyrule Castle of the Scourge.

Calamity Ganon

So you have decided to take out Calamity Ganon once and for all. The first thing you should realize is that the difficulty of Calamity Ganon changes depending on how much you've completed in the game. Freeing the spirits of the four Champions of Hyrule will help bring down Calamity Ganon's health by 1/8 for each spirit. Freeing all spirits of the Champions will bring down Calamity Ganon's health to 50% to start the fight. Additionally, if you have gotten the Master Sword, you will see a cutscene of the Master Sword being imbued with divine power, adding to your attack power.

First Phase

Calamity Ganon is a combination of Waterblight Ganon, Windblight Ganon, Fireblight Ganon, and Thunderblight Ganon, using a variation of attacks from each boss. These attacks are pretty obvious when they are about to happen and the same strategy used previously will work against Calamity Ganon. Using the Cryonis Rune to destroy ice blocks, Revali's Gale when he fires at you like Windblight Ganon, ice arrows work well against the fire orb, and dodging his attacks will give you ample opportunity to stun him and get in a few hits until he has 50% of the health he began the fight with.

Second Phase

In his second phase, Calamity Ganon will create a glowing orange shield around himself that will block nearly all attacks. Using Urbosa's Fury can take out the shield and you can also deflect any incoming projectiles back at Calamity Ganon to knock out his shield. Another way to get past his shield is by dodging his attacks with Perfect Dodges giving you a chance to flurry with your melee weapon. Finally, Ancient Arrows can be used to chip away his health while also keeping your distance. The fight will be tough any way you go about it so be sure to bring some good food along and boast your stats when you need to.

Your Reward

Defeating Calamity Ganon may feel like the end but Ganon has a little more up his sleeve as you start Round 2 against Dark Beast Ganon.
