"It's Gomess. There'll be no end to it if you can't get those bats away from it. Does that shed any light on the situation? (MM)

It's Gomess. Your attacks won't do a thing until you defeat all those bats surrounding it! (MM3D)"


Gomess is immune to any damage while Bad Bats cover its body. To disperse the bats, Link can shoot a Light Arrow at Gomess. Once the bats are scattered, Link can attack the green orb under its cloak to damage the creature. After each attack, Gomess will start spinning its scythe towards Link, who can block the attack with his Shield. Gomess can also attack Link by swinging its scythe.

Defeating Gomess unlocks the chamber where a Treasure Chest containing the Boss Key is located.


Gomess shares its French name, "Faucheur," with Death Sword. The name alludes to the Grim Reaper.
