Phantom Riders only appear during the horseback fight against Ganondorf in Hyrule Field. They can be summoned by Ganondorf after releasing a bolt of energy. Phantom Riders charge at Link five at a time, knocking him off Epona if hit. They disappear after charging until summoned again by Ganondorf. Link can safely avoid them by riding in between or by attacking with his Sword just before they ram him.
