The Fire Temple boss in The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom is none other than the Marbled Gohma. This boss is a large lava rock cyclops of sorts, meaning that like many other Zelda: TOTK enemies, its weak point will be its eye. Therefore, Link will need help knocking it down to be able to reach the eye of this large monster.


As with the other temples, Link will not have to take on this Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom Fire Temple Boss alone. For the Fire Temple, Link will receive the help of Goron, Yunobo, who has a unique Charge Attack that Link will be able to use to target the Marbled Gohma’s legs.

It’s recommended that players take on this Temple Boss in Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom before taking on any others as this is by far the easiest one to beat due to its simplistic attacks and easy-to-navigate arena.

How To Beat Marbled Gohma’s First Phase

In the first phase, the priority will be to attack the Marbled Gohma’s large crab-like legs after which point his weak point, the eye, will become vulnerable to attacks. To do this, use Yunobo’s Charge Attack to target the legs. This will cause the body of the Marbled Gohma to fall and Link can attack the eye.

After a couple of hits, the Marbled Gohma will get back up and the same process will need to be repeated. The main attack to watch out for during this first phase are explosive rocks that Marbled Gohma will occasionally drop. These are easy to avoid and the amount of time before they explode is very forgiving.

Try using The Legend of Zelda: TOTK Fuse ability to create some powerful melee weapons that will do large amounts of damage when Link has the opportunity to attack. Try using something like a Diamond which adds a hefty amount of power to the base weapon.

How To Beat Marbled Gohma’s Second Phase

For Phase Two of this fight, attacking the Marbled Gohma’s legs on the ground will no longer be an option as it now sticks to the ceiling. However, Yunobo will still be able to use his charged attacks and roll up the wall to hit the legs up there until it falls, so make that the biggest priority here too.

Yunobo may occasionally miss if not set up properly, but it’s better to just send him off whenever available because more often than not, he will hit something. Once the Marbled Gohma falls, the same method of attacking the eye will be Link’s goal until it knocks him off and retreats back to the ceiling.

The Marbled Gohma will also have a new form of attacking in this phase, it will trap Link in a circle of explosive rocks that if he doesn’t escape from quickly will likely kill him. The easiest way out is simply using Link’s Recall ability in Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom on one of the balls which will remove it and allow Link to escape the circle.

If that is too tedious for players, Yunobo can also use his charge attack to clear an explosive or two away for Link, but the recall ability is by far the easier and quickest option. Not to mention that if Yunobo is used, Link will have to wait on his cooldown time before being able to send him off again.

Once the Marbled Gohma is defeated, Link will be able to retrieve a Heart Container, which is the same as in all the other temple boss fights. Additionally, Link will now have gained a new companion avatar, Yunobo, Sage of Fire. Link can now continue on his journey and take on some of the other Temple bosses in The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom if he has not completed them already. It’s worth noting that any Companion Avatars that Link has acquired up to this point will be present with him in any future temple boss fights.
