Inside Jabu-Jabu's Belly

Weak Point



Heart Container, Zora Sapphire


Barinade appeared as the third boss in Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time. It was placed inside Lord Jabu-Jabu and siphoned energy from it, making it sick and weak. Once it was defeated by Link, Jabu-Jabu returned to normal.


Begin the fight by using the Boomerang to cut down Barinade's three connecting pieces. Afterwards, it will start to float and spin a shield of Baris. Avoid them and the occasional electric blast. Throw your boomerang through the shield to stun Barinade. You can attack the body directly now or take out the shield piece by piece with the boomerang. Once the first shield is down it will create another faster one. Use the same strategy and once both shields are gone, attack the body with your sword.
