Bio-electric Anemone: Barinade is the third boss in Ocarina of Time, residing Inside Jabu-Jabu's Belly.[1] It is an enormous anemone-like monster that acts as a dangerous parasite to Lord Jabu-Jabu, gradually draining its host of his life energy in order to sustain itself. Barinade is the guardian of the third Spiritual Stone, Zora's Sapphire.

Strategy

The introduction

Barinade is attached to the ceiling of the arena, absorbing life energy from Lord Jabu-Jabu through three tentacles, when Link enters the arena. Bari, hovering in the air, are electrically drawn and attach to the core of Barinade, beginning the battle. Link severs the three tentacles that attach Barinade to the ceiling with the Boomerang. Barinade targets Link with lightning from its other three tentacles during this time.

Hit him with the boomerang

If Link removes Barinade's attached tentacles, five Bari surround Barinade's static core, connected via electricity. If any of the Bari or beams of electricity strike Link, he will take damage. Link uses the Boomerang to directly remove the Bari; they pop into colored bubbles when defeated. Link also uses the Boomerang to stun the core of Barinade directly, following up with attacks from the Kokiri Sword or Deku Sticks.

After Link removes the first five Bari and/or applies enough initial damage to the core, Barinade spins wildly around the room, firing blasts of electricity at Link from its tentacles. The five remaining Bari are, on occasion, brought close to Barinade's core, and in other cases, the core moves about the arena, extending the Bari in a loose, protective field. Barinade roots itself and unleashes a volley of electricity at Link, from its tentacles, after all Bari are removed. Link uses the Boomerang to again stun the core, engage a Critical Point, and directly attack again with the Kokiri Sword or Deku Sticks. If Link does not apply enough damage, Barinade will continue to spin around the room, repeating the second-half of the battle.

When defeated, Barinade develops purple-pink polyps on its core and tentacles, and explodes into green gas, leaving a Heart Container in its remains.
