Gohdan uses its hands to push Link into the electric pits on the sides of the room. It can also perform a clapping move to strike Link from either side. After receiving some damage, Gohdan attacks using a series of exploding fireballs from his mouth.
To defeat it, Link must shoot at the eyes on both hands with his Bow, disabling them temporarily. After he shoots both hands, Gohdan's eyes become vulnerable to Arrows. After shooting both eyes, Gohdan crashes to the ground, where Link can then throw a Bomb into its mouth. Each time Gohdan is knocked down, his hands recover faster than before. If Link runs out of Arrows, Gohdan can drop a bundle of them from its nostrils.
After three blasts in its mouth, Gohdan declares Link winner. It then leaves a Heart Container and grants him access to the roof of the tower, where Link rings a bell that causes a portal leading to Hyrule to open in the waves below.
|Gohdan, The Great Arbiter (Figurine from The Wind Waker)|
|| Habitat: Tower of the Gods|
Effective Weapon: Arrows
This monstrous machine was created by the gods as a trial for the great hero. You can drop it to the ground only by piercing its hands and face with arrows.
Once it has fallen, you can defeat it by immediately tossing a bomb inside it.
Oddly enough, arrows occasionally drop from its nostrils.
Gohdan is a portmanteau of "God" and "Hand."
- Even after Gohdan is defeated, if Link aims his Boomerang at the eyes on his hands or on his nose, the yellow Boomerang lock on will display.[verification needed]
- Gohdan is very similar to Bongo Bongo from Ocarina of Time, Ramrock from Oracle of Ages, and Mazaal from The Minish Cap. Gohdan's Japanese name (ゴードン) is also written with a similar spelling to Ramrock's name (ゴーリガン) in Japanese.
- Gohdan's head bears some similarity to Inca and pre-Inca masks and headdresses.
