- Not to be confused with Morpha.
When Link enters Morpheel's chamber, he only finds a single tentacle at the bottom. Once he sinks to the sand, seven other tentacles emerge from the bottom of the chamber, along with a large mouth. To defeat Morpheel's first form, Link must equip the Iron Boots and avoid the Bombfish it releases. He must grab its eye with the Clawshot and then attack it immediately. After two times, the creature's tentacles retract and its eye gets swallowed, ending up on its back. Afterwards, Morpheel's full body is revealed as it swims around the chamber. If Morpheel swims in front of Link, it will suck him in and damage him, spitting him out afterwards. Link must proceed to swim above it in order to use the Clawshot to latch onto its eye. After slashing it several times, Link is thrown off. He must continue to hook onto Morpheel until it is defeated, causing it to crash into the wall, draining all the water in the room.
Morpheel's name is a combination of morph- and eel, sharing the prefix with Morpha, a similar boss in Ocarina of Time.

There are several notable similarities between Morpheel and Morpha.
- Both are the boss of the Water dungeon in their respective games.
- In both games, Zora's Domain is frozen and the water level in Lake Hylia is reduced. (Although Morpheel is not the cause of this.)
- Both have a weak point in the form of an eye that travels along a tentacle.
- Both require the Hookshot/Clawshot to be defeated.
- Both of their names begin with "Morph.”
