How To Defeat Igneo Talus In Zelda TOTK

The Igneo Talus in Zelda TOTK is a fierce enemy, so here's how to beat it.

The Igneo Talus miniboss in Zelda Tears of the Kingdom (TOTK) is the strongest among its brethren, so it’s difficult to defeat it. You will find this talus in the fiery regions of Eldin Canyon, Death Mountains, and the Depths below them. This talus covered in lava has many strong attacks which can deplete much of Link’s health in an instant. Moreover, unlike other Talus, you will have a difficult time attacking its weak point due to the lava-covered body. In this guide, we will tell you how to beat it in Tears of the Kingdom.

How to Prepare for the Igneo Talus Fight

Before fighting the Igneo Talus, you should equip yourself with the Flamebreaker Armor. This armor protects Link from Flame Damage. You can get the whole set at the Armor Store in Goron City. Next, you’ll need loads of Ice Fruits and White ChuChu Jellies. These items will help you cool down the Igneo Talus, which is crucial to defeating it. And finally, we recommend you get some HP meals like Hearty Mushroom Skewers. These will replenish Link’s health if he’s hit with an attack. Moreover, it’ll help if you’ve unlocked Sidon’s water-slash attack by completing Sidon of the Zora quest.
