After you have solved the puzzles in the wind temple, you must take on Colgera, the boss in The Legend of Zelda Tears of the Kingdom. Defeating the boss is part of the Regional Phenomena main quest. Colgera is a large beetle-like monster that throws ice and can create tornadoes to attack you. In this Zelda TotK guide, we go over how you can beat the wind temple boss Colgera.

How To Beat Colgera In The Legend of Zelda Tears of the Kingdom (TotK)

The encounter with Colgera has three phases in Zelda and the following is a breakdown of each phase.

Colgera Boss Fight Phase 1

During the first phase of the boss fight, you will need to maneuver using the strong winds and attack Colgera’s ice weak spot. In this phase of the boss battle, the weak spots are only exploded once Colgera starts to shoot ice shards at you. While you can get close and melee attack, we recommend using your bow to slow down time and then fire as many arrows as you can. Regular arrows work fine but you can attach bombs to your arrows as well.

Once you destroy the weak point, Colgera will retreat into a portal. This indicates the second phase of the wind temple boss fight.

Colgera Boss Fight Phase 2

During the second phase of the boss fight, Colgera can retreat into the portal and then emerge from the bottom of the arena. To deal damage to the boss, you will need to glide below Colgera and get close to the ice weak point, and then attack it with your bow. You will see a snowflake on the weak point when you are close enough to deal damage.

You can use homing material like Keese eyeballs on your arrows if you are having trouble aiming and timing your shots right. Keep attacking the weak point until the health of the boss drops to half. This will trigger the third and final phase of the boss fight.

Colgera Boss Fight Phase 3

The strategy in this phase is the same as in phase 2. You need to target the weak spot. But it is going to be harder in this phase since the boss creates tornadoes to stop you. The tornadoes are tricky to fly around but you can use Tulin’s gust ability to move out of the way quickly.

Proceed to shoot the weak point and once you have destroyed the third one the boss will be defeated and you will get a heart container and the Vow of Tulin.
