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.
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
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.
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
