6If you're struggling with other enemies, prioritize destroying the nest to get back to one-on-one
7You can defeat it in the same way as Steps 1-3, except that it jumps up

Fire & Lightning Keese Eyeball Fused Arrow Are Recommended

Queen Gibdo can be weakened to white by hitting it with a lightning or fire attack, so Fire Keese Eyeball or Yellow Chuhu Jelly is effective. Keese Eyeball is especially powerful because it tracks and hits the enemy even when you shoot arrows at random.

Bomb Arrow Can Also Stun It

Bomb Flower's explosion can also inflict flame damage, which causes the boss to weaken. It also does explosion damage, so if you have enough in your Inventory. It is recommended to use it as a priority.

Fusing Gibdo Bone Is Also Recommended

Gibdo Bone can be fused to create a 40-damage Arrow. It can do a lot of damage at long range, so it is recommended to fuse the Gibdo Bone to go for the stun until you get close after it becomes white and weakened.

Be Aware Of The Range Of Riju's Lightning

Riju's lightning range gradually expands from Link's position, so Riju may not be able to reach the boss. It is advisable to pay attention to Riju's location and the lighting range.

The distance between boss and riju

▲ Keeping Riju in sight makes it easier to keep track of the battle situation

Destroy Nests To Stop Gibdo's Appearance

Destroy Nests To Stop Gibdo's Appearance

When the boss's HP reaches 50%, the boss calls for Gibdo. If you destroy a total of four nests with Riju's lightning, Gibdo's appearance will be stopped. The nests can only be destroyed if they have holes in them, so check the condition of the nests before attacking.

Nests Can Also Be Destroyed With Bomb Arrow

If the nest is open, it can be destroyed by Bomb Flowers. You can use them while waiting for Riju's lightning to strike.

Enter The Light To Defeat Gibdo

Gibdos are weak against light and will self-destruct if hit by light, so it is better to enter the light and wait for the cooldown of Riju's lightning. This way is also effective against Queen Gibdo in the Lightning Temple.

Boss Can Be Beaten Without Destroying Nests

If you can shoot the boss down with lightning accurately and quickly, and take it down, it is not essential to destroy the nest. if you can't handle the enemies, you can ignore them and attack the boss.

Queen Gibdo Attacks & Moves

Sand Beam

The boss's beam is a follow-up type, and even if you avoid it once, it will follow Link and attack. If you hold the Shield, you will not be damaged, so press and hold the ZL button to deal with it.

Sand Tornado

An attack performed by the boss in its white form. Keep your distance from the boss in white form, dash to the side, and then go around in front of the tornado. Also, when the boss's HP falls below 50%, the number of tornadoes increases from three to five, so make a larger circle around them.


It is recommended to avoid the boss's rush attack by dashing diagonally backwards. If you are far away from the boss, you can dash to the side.

Can Queen Gibdo Be Rematched?

Can Rematch In The Depths

Queen Gibdo appears as a strong boss in the Depths. You can register it in the Hyrule Compendium, so if you haven't done so yet, go there and take pictures.

Winning Gets You Energy Crystals

Winning the rematch in Depths will give you 100 Crystallized Charges as a reward. Since Zonai Energy Cells can be expanded just by defeating the boss, it is recommended to make it a priority.
