Ocarina of Time - Boss Theories (Part 2)

Hey readers. This the next part of Boss Theories from yesterday. I haven't put up the Ganondorf poll yet, but it will be up. For now, enjoy the post.


Phantom Ganon: Phantom Ganon is a mysterious creation of Ganondorf himself. He looks like him, except for the face, which is actually a flame. Phantom Ganon also has similar attacks to Ganondorf. It seems like it was created without any effort from Ganondorf, as he calls it worthless when defeated. It also seems to have feelings, as Ganondorf banishes it to the "gap between dimension" as punishment. How it was created is not known.




Volvagia: Volvagia is a long, snake-like dragon that lives in the extreme conditions of Death Mountain's crater. To be more specific, it  lives deep in the Fire Temple under a large stone platform. Volvagia can only live in extreme heat. It was capable of living hundreds and maybe thousands of years. Ganondorf had the intention of feeding Gorons to Volvagia as an example of the consequences to those who oppose him. But there is something mysterious about Volvagia. According to Goron lore, Volvagia was previously defeated by a legendary Goron with the Megaton Hammer. Link did the same thing hundreds (or thousands) of years later but it appeared that Volvagia was killed. How did the previous Goron defeat Volvagia without killing it? Maybe Volvagia never died.

Morpha: Morpha is giant aquatic amoeba also created by Ganondorf to corrupt Lake Hylia and the Water Temple. Morpha seems to control itself from its large nucleus that acts as a brain. It is intelligent and very powerful. Morpha is not made of water, despite its looks. It is able to grab Link and shake him around, and is vulnerable to fire. What exactly Morpha is made of is not known, but it is invincible to physical harm.

Bongo-Bongo: Possibly the most mysterious boss in all of the Zelda series, many theories surround the origin and figure of Bongo-Bongo. Bongo-Bongo was originally sealed in Kakariko Well, but broken out and went into the Shadow Temple. But what exactly is Bongo-Bongo? Let's start from the beginning. It is said that Bongo-Bongo was a man who owned or maybe created the Lens of Truth and Mask of Truth. I believe he stole them, but was caught. Then his hands were cut off as punishment. This explains his cut hands. He must of also been beheaded for some reason (probably in the Shadow Temple, see Temple Theories for more information), which explains the cut head. The eye in his head that appears when you fight him must symbolize the Lens of Truth. More proof to this theory is that his house used to be where the well is, which is why he was sealed in it. No theory can be 100% guaranteed right.

Twinrova: This boss was also hard to collect facts about. What I discovered of Kotake and Koume is that they are of Gerudo descent (given their appearance), but were skilled in witchcraft, not fighting. They are twins, and capable of fusing together to make Twinrova. Koume was fire-typed, while Kotake was ice-typed. They also served as Ganondorf's surrogate (substitute) mothers. They are extremely loyal to him, and one of Ganondorf's most powerful followers.

This marks the end of the Boss Theories section. Any questions, email me at zeldafacts@hotmail.com or just comment below. Make sure to vote on the Ganondorf poll next week. Stay following.

  1. bongo-bongo is the most mysterious. my favorite boss is morpha, though. like, what spell caused him to excist? it must have been a spell, since, water does not come alive by itself. i also think that phantom ganon is not actually real, but was an illusion created to warn link about later on danger, just like the moon in majoras mask, except the moon was not a warning.

  3. For Gohma (first boss in Ocarina of Time), in the Zelda manga/anime after Link beat her, she turned into a beetle. So i guess Ganondorf cursed her. I also believe that Morpha (sixth boss in ocarina of time) is a fish and grows into Morpheel (Twilight Princess) note the similar names and the actual thing you're supposed to attack.

  4. If you read the Manga (which gave me many feels T.T) Volvagia was actually a baby dragon Link saved and kept till he was locked away in the temple of time to mature. Ganon memory wiped and cast a spell on Volvagia to make him mature into a full grown dragon and pretty much become completely mindless. Link tried to reason with him, before finally having to kill him. The part that gave me the most feels was that Volvagia said Link's name in it's dying breath... It was sad enough with Link having to kill his friend/pet, let alone it remembering Link only as it dies T.T
