How To Defeat Colgera
Weak Spots Are In The Head, Body, & Tail
The weak points are located in the round parts of the head, body, and tail. The first phase is completed by destroying each of the three weak points. The second phase is also completed by attacking and destroying the three weak points in the same manner.
Shoot The Purple Part Of The Abdomen Or Back
The weak points are the purple crystals under the spikes and on the abdomen. A total of 3 hits can cause damage.
Get As Close As Possible When Attacking
If you can see the parts other than the weak point on the screen, there is often more distance between you and the enemy. It is easier to hit an enemy if you attack so close that you can see nothing but the weak point on the screen.
Fire Fruit Can Destroy The Ice Quickly
Colgera's weak points are covered by ice which can be quickly destroyed by fusing and hitting it with Fire Fruit or Red Chuchu Jelly, both of which are fire-based.
Stamina Will Be Restored When Riding Updrafts
There are always updrafts in the area and using the Paraglider will recover all Stamina. Since drawing the Bow consumes a lot of Stamina, it is better to use the Paraglider to recover it right before shooting.
Bow With Long Range Is Recommended
Falcon Bow and Swallow Bow can shoot in a long distance, so it is easy to hit the enemy even in aerial battles where you don't have a good sense of distance. The bow can be obtained from the enemy Bokoblin that appears when you save Tulin before entering the temple.
Avoid Thrusting Attacks From Below With Tulin's Skills
Avoid the attack that thrusts up from below with Tulin's skill. After that, you will have a chance to attack again.
What To Do When You Lose Your Bow Or Arrows
Stomp Directly On The Weak Spot
If you run out of Bows and Arrows, you can still attack by falling on the weak spot and stomping on it yourself. When the spikes are launched out, you will have a chance to plunge into the exposed weak point.
It Takes Longer But Saves Your Items
It takes longer than Bows and Arrows because you have to stomp it a total of six times, but you can beat it without consuming weapons. If you want to save your weapons, you can also try to defeat Colgera only by stomping.

Prepare Bows And Arrows As It Will Be An Aerial Battle
Since Colgera flies high in the sky, the only way to deal damage is Bows and Arrows. It's a good idea to collect more than enough bows and arrows for the battle in advance.▶Arrow Farming Guide - Best Ways To Get Arrows
Colgera Attack Pattern
An attack that shoots Spikes from the back of the Colgera. You can dodge the spikes by moving sideways, and weakness will be revealed making it a good opportunity to attack.
Thrusting Attack From Below
The only attack that you should keep an eye for. The attack comes after one of Colgera's weak points gets destroyed, so be ready to use Tulin's skill as Colgera teleports underneath you.|
Tornardo (Below Half HP)
An attack that comes when its HP is below half generates five tornadoes around Colgera. Since the tornadoes slowly move toward the outside, you can dodge them with ease.
How To Battle Again
Appears on Depths
