    We all love the game and we all love playing the bosses, theyre the icing on the cake that is the dungeons, theyre the finishing touches that ultimise your victory. which was your favourite boss to kill? and why?, what techniques did you use? and what did you particularly enjoy? and so on.

    Mini bosses will not be in the poll as im only allowed 10 options, so specify them.

    I voted for Ganondorf. Batting practice is always fun. Ganon was just so easy, and Zelda was kinda dumb in that battle, though the end sequence was good. Twinrova was my second favorite, just some cool variation there, but still not too challenging. Bongo Bongo was also very intertaining.

    My favorite is Phantom Gannon. It's fun to keep circling around the pictures trying to figure out which one is the real Ganon. I also liked the mini-bosses in that dungeon. Must be because I love playing with the arrows.

    The worst one is Morpha. No matter how careful I am, one of those arms always grabs me and sends me flying across the room.

    ok, sure, Ganon is easy, but he has the best experience overall. I mean, you have the ring of fire, awesome heroic music pumping, and the most evil creature in Hyrule lumbering toward you. I always enjoy beating him. I also have trouble with Morpha. He usually can grab me, but I am more prone to accidently bump the walls while I am backing up. I found out something cool though, yank him out near a corner, run around so you are between him and the water, bust out your Biggoron sword, and beat him for all he's worth. Very useful for dispatching him quickly.

    i voted for ganon because the whole battle was a hugely dramatic experience. But i loved playing all the bosses, they all had their moments and they were all fun.

    Ganondorf's and Ganon's end sequences were both wonderful, but nothing can beat Morpha's death! :p

    I like Bongo-Bongo's death best. He thinks he is all bad and he starts beating his drum real fast, and then he just stops and dies. Hee hee, that is rewarding because he is a tough boss.

    Wonder why I never thought to use the Biggoron sword on Morpha. That would make the battle go a bit faster. Maybe I'd get knocked into the wall a little less.

    the biggoron sword is for wusses who want to get the game over quick, zelda is to be enjoyed thouroughly, i always stick with the master sword for the sake of style, and tradition.

    Yeah, Crusader, I know I have told you this, but the Master Sword is just more elegant a weapon. But, you know those times when you just get so angry at the game you wanna rip it out and smash it with a sledge hammer, those are the times when you bust out the Biggoron sword to teach somebody a lesson!! It is good for anger relief. And it is useful for jumping those Gerudo Guards.

    one arrow knocks a gerudo down for enough time to made across an ocean.

    Well yeah!! But I am ALWAYS short on arrows, so I usually stun them with my Longshot, and then hit them with my Biggoron sword. And when you get caught all the time, (I don't any more, playing through Metal Gear Solid 7 times changes everything) it is much more rewarding to hit them physically.

    I always felt the Biggoron sword was awkward to use. And it's hard when you can't use the shield. Which is pretty useful in the game.

    I always thought that shooting the guards with just an arrow or longshot gave you plenty of time to run past them.

    I found the sheild a lifeline, it saved me plenty of hearts, without it I'd probably die every time i met a stalfos. The biggoron sword was good, but it just made the game less zelda like, without the master sword, link is nothing.

    True. The master sword has always been very important to the game. It just looks right in Links' hand. :)

    I found the shield really useful for blocking attacks. And it's the only way to kill octorocs. (did I spell that right)

    spelling seems rignt to me.

    Also without the shield of a hylian knight, link would have no connection to his hylian bloodline and would not be seen as a true knight. As in most of the games link was a descendant of the hylian knight.

    I really liked the master sword, but i liked the side quest of getting the Biggoron sword, even if i don't use it very much. My favortie boss was ganon/ganandorf, but i really liked dark link as a sub-boss. I all around liked the water temple, and the spirit temple as well. I've never actually sliced a gerudo ( i always shoot them), so i think that i'll try doing that next time.

    The Biggoron is nice for a little variety sometimes.It's nice they don't tie you down to one sword.I still prefer the master sword though,and as far as boss battles go my favourite is Ganon.You can feel the hope of Hyrule resting on you shoulders,or Twinrova because they die funny.

    I love fighting Twinrova. Purely because of the music!

    Yes indeed, I am very sad....
