Upon reaching the final chamber of Great Bay Temple, Link encounters Gyorg. After its defeat, the vortex surrounding Great Bay Temple disappears, and the pollution that is plaguing the waters of Great Bay ceases, such that the murky waters will eventually clear. Link obtains Gyorg's Remains, and meets the third of the Four Giants, who is free thanks to the defeat of Gyorg.
The battle takes place in a large room filled with water, with a single round platform in the center. While Link is on the platform, Gyorg will attack by leaping over the platform, or swimming onto it in an attempt to grab Link in its jaws. It will also ram the platform in an attempt to knock Link off, which he can avoid by jumping just before Gyorg hits. When Link is in the water, Gyorg will pursue him and try to suck him into its mouth, chewing on and dealing considerable damage before spitting him back out. This is one instance of an enemy grabbing Link that can not be escaped from via Zora Link's electric barrier.
To damage Gyorg, Link must first stun it, which can be accomplished with a variety of items, though Arrows or the Zora form's boomerangs are most effective. Once stunned, it will stop swimming and sink, and can only be damaged by one of Zora Link's abilities. Alternatively, if Link has Fierce Deity's Mask, its sword beams can be used to easily damage Gyorg from the platform. After taking a single hit, Gyorg will go back to attacking. Once Gyorg has taken enough damage, it will release a swarm of smaller Gyorg like fish from its mouth, possibly its offspring. They will swim after Link in order to attack, but can be easily dispatched by Zora Link's electric barrier or other forms of attack.
Unlike most enemies and bosses, after its defeat, Gyorg does not burst into flames or explode. Instead, it jumps on the platform and splashes around helplessly, all the while leaking small puddles of water until it shrinks into nothing. After Gyorg has disappeared, Link collects his remains and a Heart Container. The third Giant is freed, and the curse on Great Bay, which had been polluting the water and surrounding Great Bay Temple with a vortex, is lifted.
