The Adventure of Link
When Link enters the chamber of Thunderbird, it will not be anywhere to be seen at first. However, after a few moments, it will swoop down upon Link from above and proceed to attack him with fireballs. It will have a red color to it and will be invulnerable to attacks, leaving it invincible at first. To reveal its weakness, which is its face, Link must cast the Thunder Magic. Casting it will cause Thunderbird's color to change to blue, making its face appear, leaving it vulnerable to Sword attacks. When reaching half its health, Thunderbird will quicken its pace of throwing fireballs, which can only be repelled with the Reflect Magic.
Thunderbird's name could be a reference to the mythological creature of the same name.
