"This massive monster swims beneath the desert's sand. It is a subspecies of Molduga that stored up a great deal of energy by sleeping for hundreds of years. Its power is superior to Molduga, as its skin is rich with iron and acts as a protective shield."
Hyrule Compendium

The Molduking is a mini-boss from The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. It is a larger scale variant and subspecies of Molduga. This monster is introduced in the "Champions' Ballad" DLC. It is found in the Gerudo Desert, near the place where Traysi is standing in the East Barrens, after activating the "EX Champion Urbosa's Song" main quest. Link is required to defeat it as part of the quest.

Molduking are stronger than their relatives thanks to their iron rich skin that provides a natural protective shield and can live for centuries as they tend to sleep for hundreds of years storing up a great deal of energy. Like Molduga they are also indiscriminate feeders who will swallow inedible objects such as Remote Bombs and Treasure Chests. They are also vulnerable to Bomb Arrows and their iron rich skin makes them vulnerable to lightning produced by Urbosa's Fury. They are essentially a larger and more resilient subspecies of Molduga. When slain they drop three Treasure Chests containing equipment, mainly weapons, but no monster parts.
