Tears of the Kingdom bosses: Link running from an enormous crocodile with red eyes and a purple mouth.
Ford James Updated on by

There are a lot of Tears of the Kingdom bosses to find across Hyrule, the Sky Islands, and the Depths in this Breath of the Wild sequel. From foes to defeat in the mission to save Zelda, or optional bosses you’ll encounter when exploring off the beaten path, there are a lot of tough beasts to take down.

To do so, you’ll need to utilise all of Link’s new Tears of the Kingdom abilities, because he is armed with plenty of new powers including Ultrahand and Fuse. You’d also be strongly encouraged to know as many Tears of the Kingdom recipes as possible, so you know exactly what to cook to heal in these tough fights.

Tears of the Kingdom mini boss list

Along with the big bads during the main story, there are also plenty of Tears of the Kingdom enemies to be found in the open world which have big health bars and special names that appear at the top of the screen. Here are all of the different types of mini boss you can find in The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom:

  • Flux Construct
  • Gleeok (Flame, Frost, King, Thunder)
  • Hinox
  • Lynel
  • Molduga
  • Talus (Battle, Frost, Igneo, Luminous, Stone)

That’s all you need to know about the different types of bosses in Zelda Tears of the Kingdom, though we’ll be sure to update this if we find any more. Make sure you’re caught up on all of the Tears of the Kingdom shrines and where to find them, as these optional puzzles will net you rewards to increase your health and stamina. We also have a guide to all the Skyview Tower locations, so you can reveal more of the map.

How many bosses are in Tears of the Kingdom?

There are 11 different bosses you must fight to complete the story, but since you fight Phantom Ganon multiple times, there are more encounters than individual bosses. There are also six different mini bosses, each with different variants.

You’ll also have the opportunity to rematch the bosses of the game’s four main dungeons. After defeating them, you may come across them in a series of large arenas in the Depths. The fights have slight changes to the mechanics to make them more difficult, and offer a new reward for defeating each one, so make sure to take them on if you stumble across one.

Who is the final boss of Tears of the Kingdom?

The Demon Dragon is the final boss fight you’ll need to defeat before beating the game, coming shortly after you defeat the Demon King Ganondorf.
