Gohma is a Giant Boss that appears in Hyrule Warriors and Hyrule Warriors Legends.


In this game, Gohma resembles its Ocarina of Time counterpart, but with new colors and abilities. Its front legs are equipped with two armor plates that it can use to batter enemies or combine into a shield to cover its vulnerable eye from attack.

In Adventure Mode, Gohmas are represented by their 8-bit spite from the original The Legend of Zelda on the Adventure Map.


Spoiler warning: Plot or ending details follow.

Gohma first appears in the Sorceress of the Woods, where it is summoned by Wizzro of the Dark Forces to fight against the Hyrulean Forces lead by Lana, Link, Impa, and Sheik. In addition to its normal attack patterns, if the battle takes to long, Gohma will jump away to attack the Great Deku Tree (Hyrulean Forces' base) forcing the Hyrulean Forces to chase after it in order to prevent it from taking over their base. Eventually Gohma is defeated and killed. However it is only the first one to appear in the story. Two Gohmas appear in Cia's Tale: Darkness Falls, under the command of Ganondorf who uses them to support the Ganondorf's Forces march through the Valley of Seers in order to reclaim the Triforce of Power from Cia for their master, however they are defeated by the Dark Forces. In Ganondorf's Return, Gohma is one of the Giant Bosses that lead the Monster Forces in Gerudo Desert.


It can project a beam of energy from its eye as sweeping beams (either vertically or horizontally) or massive energy bombs (which Ganon's Ganon Bomb attack is based on). It is briefly vulnerable to the Bow (or its Item Power-Up) after using one of its eye beam attacks (signified by its eye turning blue) or when it is charging its Gohma Bomb, which can stun it and leave its Weak Point exposed (Downed state). Normally when it is hit by an attack it uses its two shield plates protect its weak point (eye), so it is best to wait for its eye to turn blue. However at times Gohma may use attacks that do not leave its eye vulnerable, such as its acid globs attack, armored charge, claw sweeps, and body slam. However like all enemies with weak points, a Focus Spirit attack can used to expose its weak point. Special Attack can also cause some damage (depending on the weapon being used, the characters current level, badges, and the difficulty level of the scenario being played) to Gohma even when it is not in a downed state.

In Ganon's Fury, Gohma will flinch when hit by Ganon's attacks and is vulnerable to Ganon's Fury Horn Boss Item Attack (dropped by defeated Manhandla). Gohma occasionally jumps in the air (off screen) to perform its body slam, though this can be easily dodged by staying out of and away from the white circle that signifies where it will land.

Gohma's drop Gohma's Acid as their Silver material drop and Gohma's Lens as their Gold material drop.


As part of her Summoning Gate moveset, Lana can summon miniature Gohmas to attack enemies.
