Dark Beast Ganon (The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild)

From Atrocious Gameplay Wiki
This fight had really good ideas and concepts, but the results....leaves a lot to be desire.

The Dark Beast Ganon is the second form of Calamity Ganon, the main antagonist and the two-phase boss fights of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, he is fought after the fight with Calamity Ganon and is the second and final phase of the final battle, is the main boss of Hyrule Field and is overall the sixth and final boss of the game.

While awesome in concept, this fight has still been rather disliked by many Players.

Why He (Somewhat) Sucks

  1. The entire battle with the Dark Beast Ganon is both bland and boring, all you do is just ride your horse and shot at the glowing weak spots on the Dark Beast Ganon's body.
  2. The whole battle takes place in broad day light, which is really ironic as this is supposed to be the final battle.
  3. The Dark Beast Ganon rarely moves, he just stay in this one spot while occasionally turning, which is just lazy.
  4. The Dark Beast Ganon only has one attack, and that's spewing large pink colored energy beams from his mouth.
  5. The energy beam that is spewed from the Dark Beast Ganon's mouth can easy be avoided by simply running in place.
  6. To add insult to injury, this takes place after the Calamity Ganon boss fight, which has a huge selection of attacks.
  7. Wasted potential, this whole fight was meant to be a call back to the Ganon fight from The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, from how both fights are against Ganon who has one attack, so its understanding for what this battle was going for, but that was unfortunately not the case.

Redeeming Qualities

  1. The design of the Dark Beast Ganon is freaking awesome.
  2. The lead up the fight is really engaging, with some details on the lore behind Ganon.
  3. The music that plays during the fight is pretty good.
  4. The daylight does grow darker and darker as the battle progresses.
  5. The ending after the fight is really heartwarming.
