The Gyorg Pair appears at the end of the Palace of Winds at the Cloud Tops. The battle takes place mid-air, forcing Link to jump from one Gyorg to the other by using Roc's Cape. As soon as Link enters the battle room, he lands on the back of the Gyorg Male, who will deposit him onto the back of the Gyorg Female. Link must multiply by charging the White Sword in order to attack the multiple eyes of the Female. The Male will fire projectiles at Link to prevent this. While riding the Gyorg Male, he will attack with his tail to knock Link off. Eventually, the Gyorg Female will also release a swarm of green Gyorg children. Their defeat earns Link the Wind Element.
