     1. Lizard Warriors-These are easy. Just hit them with your sword when they are about to attack.

     2. Tentacles-Use the Boomerang.

     3. Dead Hand (Well)-Get grabbed by a hand and wait until he lowers his head. Then press buttons to get free. Then attack.

     4. Armored Knuckle-This one is a little hard. If you have NaruÂ’s Love than use it. Attack him all out.

     2. Four PoeÂ’s-Shoot them with arrows.

     3. Flame Dancers-Throw a bomb at him while he is skating around. Then use the sword.

     4. Dark Link-Multiple ways to beat him. The easiest way that I found was to use the thrust while equipped with the BiggoronÂ’s Sword. Other ways are using the hammer or DinÂ’s Fire. Do not use the Master Sword.

     5. Dead Hand (Shadow Temple)-Same as the other Dead Hand.

     6. Armored Knuckle-Same as before.
