The Minish Cap

Main article: Bosses in The Minish Cap

There are six Bosses in The Minish Cap, with the sixth and final Boss having three separate forms. Each Boss is invulnerable to damage until Link is able to reveal their weak point through the use of whichever Item is obtained in the Dungeon. The final Boss, Vaati, requires the use of several Items to make his various forms vulnerable to damage from the Four Sword.

Defeating each of the first five Bosses grants Link a new Heart Container and (with the exception of Mazaal) one of the Four Elements. A green Portal also appears alongside the Heart Container (again with the exception of Mazaal), which will transport Link back to the entrance of the Dungeon.
