Molgera is the Boss of the Wind Temple in The Wind Waker.[2]

Molgera, Protector of the Seal
Habitat: Wind Temple
Effective Weapon: Hookshot

This evil guardian burrows deep into sand. Use the Hookshot to draw out its tender tongue, then slash at it with your blade.

When Molgera emerges from the sand, Link must be careful not to get too close to its gaping mouth; otherwise, the creature might devour him and cause damage before spitting him back out. Link must Target Molgera's tongue with the Hookshot so he can attack it with any weapon.

After enough damage is dealt, the boss will release three Molgera Larvae to distract Link. He can use the Hookshot to latch onto them and slash them with the Sword, rewarding him with Hearts. After Molgera sends its Larvae out, Link must watch for Molgera as it emerges from the sand and flies through the air, attempting to crush him when it dives back in.

After receiving enough damage, the boss flies into the air and explodes in a shower of sand, revealing the Triforce crest with blue light. This yields a Heart Container to Link as a reward and restores the Wind Temple's seal, allowing Makar to take up his role as the Wind Sage and restoring the remainder of the Master Sword's lost power.

Molgera is found again in Ganon's Tower later in the game. It must be defeated for a second time in the same fashion to break the seal to the door leading to Ganondorf.



Molgera's name is a play on Mogura, the Japanese word for mole.
