"This massive monster swims beneath the desert's sand. It spends most of its time submerged, if it senses sound, if well breach the surface to feast on whatever it can grab. Running around carelessly can be dangerous if you suspect there may be one in the area."
Hyrule Compendium

Molduga are mini-bosses from The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. There are four Molduga found throughout the Gerudo Desert region of Hyrule. The locations where they dwell are Arbiter's Grounds, North Dragon's Exile, Southern Oasis, and Toruma Dunes. Molduga drop Molduga Fins, Molduga Guts, and metal Treasure Chests when they are defeated.

Molduga can sense movements and vibrations through the ground. This skill combined to their speed make them difficult to out run. However they can be tricked by dropping Remote Bombs on the ground to make them travel toward it, and activate it when Molduga is under it. Link can also ride Sand Seals and use Bomb Arrows to defeat Molduga.


The name Molduga may be inspired by previous similar mold enemies such as Moldorms, Moldarach or Molgera, sharing the "Mol-" prefix in their names and tunneling through and under sand.
