How to Beat Trev the Tenteyecle in Yooka-Laylee
Trev the Tenteyecle is the third Grand Tome’s boss you’ll come up against in Yooka-Laylee. The Moodymaze Marsh boss can be a little tricky if you don’t know how to deal with his tentacle attacks. With that in mind, we’ve come up with a handy guide to help you out.
First things first, your fight against Trev the Tenteyecle will start with him using a tentacle to sweep the ground. All you need to do is time your jumps here to leap over. After he’s done a few sweeps, Trev the Tenteyecle will slam a tentacle down in the middle of the room. Wait until the blue shockwave has disappeared and then use either your tail attack or the Buddy Slam move on each of the three eyes on the tentacle. You’ll need to hit the small one once, the mid-sized one twice, and the largest one three times.
This will then see Trev the Tenteyecle try and attack you from the air. This time, though, the tentacle will follow you around the arena. Here, you’ll want to keep on the move and jump as soon as you see the shadow disappear and the tentacle coming down. You’ll be able to avoid the AoE damage that this attack can deal by simply using glide to stay off the ground.
Once he’s done this a few times, his main eye will appear in one of the grates on the side. Jump up onto the grate and attack it as many times as you can. Be warned, though, as the grate can slam shut and damage you if you’re not quick enough.
After damaging the main eye once, the room will fill with water. You’ll need to run away from the tentacle that emerges from the water. We found that jumping quickly in large circles was the best way to avoid any damage here.
After a while, the tentacle will disappear and Trev the Tenteyecle will go back to the first move he mentioned. Rinse and repeat the steps outlined above a few times, until the room fills with water for a third time. This time, Trev the Tenteyecle will have one water chasing you from the water, and another trying to grab you from above. Again, fast successive jumps in a circular motion away from the tentacles worked well for us.
After a while, the room will drain and the main eye will be revealed for a final time. Hit it again and Trev the Tenteyecle will be defeated. For more tips, tricks, and strategies on Yooka-Laylee, make sure to check out our wiki.
