Zelda: Tears Of The Kingdom – Marbled Gohma Boss Guide

Are you having trouble defeating the Marbled Gohma boss in The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom? Fear not, as we’re here to offer some tips and tricks to help you succeed.

How to Beat Marbled Gohma

The Marbled Gohma is the final boss you’ll face after clearing the Eldin Fire Temple Puzzle in The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom. To defeat this towering spider encased in rocks, you’ll need to break down its defenses before you can deal any damage. Here’s a rundown of what you need to do:

Phase 1

You’ll be relying on Yunobo’s Rolling Fireball skill to not only deal damage to the boss but also to destroy the protective rocks on its legs. The idea is to activate Yunobo’s skill, then target the boss’ legs to destroy the rocks. Do this a couple of times, and the boss will get stunned, giving you the opportunity to climb on its body and smack its eye with your melee weapon.

Be careful not to get too greedy during the DPS phase, or the boss will crack Link’s head. The Marbled Gohma has a few abilities that you need to watch out for:

  • Legdrop – When one of its legs is raised higher, it will crash down on the ground, usually where Link is standing.
  • Rock Bombs – Several large rocks will drop, and you’ll need to avoid them since they’ll explode within a few seconds.
  • Angry Roar – You have a few seconds to DPS the boss while it’s stunned. If you’re still on its body once it stands up, you’ll take a bit of damage.

Phase 2

During this phase, the boss will have some additional mechanics that you need to deal with:

  • From the Air – The boss will plant itself in the ceiling, which means you have to aim Yunobo’s Rolling Fireball toward its general direction. Your pal will roll all the way around the ceiling to hit its leg.
  • Rock Bomb Cage – The large rocks this time will surround Link before exploding after a few seconds.

To deal with the Rock Bomb Cage, you’ll need a strong blunt weapon (i.e. fused with a boulder or spiked ball) or Yunobo’s Rolling Fireball to break them quickly. Alternatively, you just need to keep running sideways whenever it’s cast. There’s a chance that the boulders will form a ring in the area that you just ran past.

With a bit of luck, you should be able to defeat the Marbled Gohma boss and complete the Eldin/Goron City quest chain. Yunobo will also grant you his vow, allowing you to make use of Rolling Fireball during your travels.
