(1 of 2) Funix in the Ancient Cistern.

Funix in the Ancient Cistern. (left), Grab their tails with the Whip, then perform a Fatal Blow. (right)

A large bird with a lengthy tail. Pokemon players can relate it to a less-fantastic Ho-oh; Final Fantasy players can relate it to a Phoenix, but without flame.

Location Spoils
Ancient Cistern, Skipper’s Retreat Rupees

How to Defeat

At first, these large birds can only be slain after obtaining the Whip. Wait for its tail to stretch out, then target the tail to pull the bird down. Once this is done, you can then attack it with the sword to defeat it.

Later on, you can snipe them from afar with the Bow.

While your life thus far has been peaceful, soon nothing will be the same again, when your beloved friend, Zelda, is stolen from you…
