In Breath of the Wild, Fireblight Ganon is one of the four Blight Ganons, phantoms of Calamity Ganon that took control of the Divine Beasts.[3] It is found either inside the Divine Beast Vah Rudania or in the center of Hyrule Castle if it is not already defeated. Fireblight Ganon is responsible for the demise of Daruk.[4] It is particularly weak to Ice attacks.

First Phase[]

When Link tries to activate the Main Control Unit, a pool of Malice will spiral and Fireblight Ganon will appear. Then when the battle begins, Daruk says, "Watch out for the sword." If the player plays dirty like Windblight Ganon and keeps their distance, Fireblight Ganon will throw multiple tiny fireballs. When close in contact, he'll try to hit Link with its sword. If Link dodges it perfectly, he can do a Flurry Rush. If he gets enough hits on him, Fireblight Ganon will be stunned for a bit. Once Link removes half of his health, Fireblight Ganon will teleport to the Main Control Unit with a flaming sword and a flaming shield, beginning the second phase.

Second Phase[]

During the Second phase of the fight, Fireblight Ganon will infuse its sword with fire, giving it an orange-like color and he will form a flaming ball around him similar to Daruk's Protection. Daruk warns Link by saying, "That flaming ball is dangerous." This flaming ball can shield off every attack except for a Remote Bomb. However, this can only happen if Fireblight is creating a spiral wind pattern toward him. If successful, Fireblight Ganon will be stunned for short period of time allowing Link a good amount of hits in. In addition, Daruk will say, "Now's your chance." Once Fireblight gets up, he acts exactly like he did in the first phase.

When Fireblight Ganon is defeated, Link will receive a Heart Container as a reward. Daruk will appear and thank Link for freeing his spirit.[5] He will apologize to Link for failing to defeat Fireblight Ganon on his own.[6][7][8] As a reward, he will give Link Daruk's Protection.[9]

Other Appearances[]

Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity[]

In Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity, Fireblight Ganon appears as the second Boss in the Scenario, "Water and Fire", following Waterblight Ganon. Fireblight Ganon appears more red than its appearance in Breath of the Wild. Fireblight Ganon attempts to kill Daruk like in Breath of the Wild, however, Daruk is saved by Yunobo.
