Fully powered Master Sword
|Theme Music||File:VS Molgera.ogg|
When Molgera emerges from the sand, Link must be careful not to get too close to its gaping mouth; otherwise, the creature might devour him and cause damage before spitting him back out. Link must use the targeting system to grab Molgera's tongue with the Hookshot so he can slash Molgera with his Sword.
After enough damage is dealt, Molgera will release three larvae to distract Link. The young hero can use the Hookshot to latch onto them and slash them with the Sword. They reward him with Hearts after being defeated. After Molgera sends its larvae out, Link must watch for Molgera as it emerges from the sand and flies through the air, attempting to crush him when it dives back in. After receiving enough damage, the boss flies into the air and explodes in a shower of sand, revealing the Triforce crest with blue light.
Link's rewards from this fight are a Heart Container and a powered up Master Sword.

Molgera's name is a play on Mogura, the Japanese word for mole.
- It is also possible to latch onto Molgera's tongue while it's in the air if it's timed right. Molgera becomes frozen in the air if that happens.
