The remake of the Gameboy Legend of Zelda adventure Link’s Awakening has landed on Nintendo Switch. Here is how to beat Slime Eye boss in Link’s Awakening.
How To Beat Slime Eye
Link’s Awakening, just like most other Legend of Zelda games follows the tried and true formula of obtaining a new item in a dungeon and then having to use that item to progress.
In this case you’ll need to acquire the Pegasus Boots, which will allow Link to dash and jump further to clear larger distances. The Pegasus Boots will also be the key to defeating Slime Eye.
You’ll need the boots in order to even reach the boss, so don’t worry about potentially missing them in the dungeon.
The fight starts out with what looks like two slimes stuck together, you’ll need to hit one of the eyes with your sword to get the slime to start splitting apart.
You’ll notice that there is a strand holding them together that will get thinner as you proceed to swing you sword at one of the eyes.
This is where you will need to quickly line up with the strand and hit the ZL button to dash through the strand. This will cause the slime to fully split in two.
After that you can just keep avoiding its attacks and swing at the eye to eventually defeat the Slime Eye.
To summarize, here’s how to beat the slime eye in Link’s Awakening:
- Obtain the Pegasus Boots
They are in the dungeon inside of a chest, once you find them you’ll have everything you need
- Attack the Eye
Start by attacking one of the Slime Eye’s eyes to cause it to start to split apart
- Dash Through the Strand
Line up and hold ZL to Pegasus Dash through the strand thus splitting it in two.
- Attack the Eyes
After splitting the Slime Eye in two just keep attacking the eyes to kill it.
