The Legend of Zelda


 

You would think that the hardest fight in a Legend of Zelda game would always be the final boss, Ganon, but as anyone who’s played Breath of the Wild knows, that’s simply not true. The toughest enemy isn’t a boss or a scripted fight, but a recurring enemy type: the Lynels.

These centaur-like creatures are smart, versatile, and most importantly, are capable of one-shotting Link for a good portion of Breath of the Wild‘s gameplay. That doesn’t mean that they’re unbeatable, though.

YouTube user Jimmyqballs has created a guide to help you defeat the Lynels in game, and it doesn’t depend on cheap trick tricks or bomb arrow spamming tactics. Instead, he teaches how to actually fight the Lynels one on one, giving an extensive breakdown of the creatures’ attacks and breakdowns on the timing you’ll need to dodge, parry, and dance around Breath of the Wild‘s toughest foes—even if all you have is a tree branch.

There aren’t any story spoilers in the video, though it does, obviously, give away the location and appearance of several of the Lynels it teaches you to defeat.
